I was thinking of the posibility of a board where forumites can host there own games, for example various quizes, maybe and x360a big brother, word asociation thread, various mafia games and more.

This is just a suggestion, but I for one would be happy to see it implemented.

Take the one on this website for example - http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/forums/viewforum.php?f=17 (I don't use that website btw, just an example)

Do you mean like Role-Playing on the Forum?

He didn't mention role-playing, but I do think that a forum for site-based games would be fun. It'd probably give some of the less active members more of a daily reason to stop in and check up on whatever game they'd enjoying on the forum. Plus, word association is especially fun. =]

Not role-playing as such, more sort of games which, like the above poster, will involve the forum members more and give them more of a reason to visit the site religiously.

That sounds quite good. Hopefully it gets Added.

Was just wondering if I could maybe get some feedback from the more authoritative members. *Looks at Mods and Admins*

Stupid idea, because people will just make 100 topics titled 'Count to x' where people just post a number and people will just sit in there all day to get the highest postcount on the forum.

People already visit this site religiously without needing to play 'forum games'. They have a 360 for a reason... to play games! They don't need to play games on the forums.

Oh I get what you mean now. Like say for instance a Game called Finish the Story. And everyone would post a Word for the Story.

There is the possibility of making the forum but having post counts disabled in it and there is also the possibility of 'if you want to make a game, get a mod's or admin's permission first'. If a person creates a game, without anyones permission the thread can be locked.

Or only moderators/admins can make new threads and regular users are only allowed to post - post counts being disabled as well.

But even so, the amount of posts generate from 'that sort' of section could seriously destroy the site's bandwidth.

Sounds like a pretty good idea, and a lot of my space whores who actually play 360 would have those quiz'es on lock.

You can always just make a social group. With the exception of quotes, it has the same functionality, plus whoever made the group can control who can join and/or post.

My opinion on "forum games" are simply excuses for people to stroke their post counts with massive amounts of vapid imputs which fail to provide any sort of intelligent contribution towards anything which could possibly be seeking such contributions. The forums always end up filled with "you know you have played too much _______ "

"say ____ about the last poster"

"what are you listening to"

"whats the last thing you watched"

or whatever other silly or annoying "games" people try to push onto the internets.

The only forum game I would participate in would be. "Zenquen's grand competition of trying to convey a simple idea while doing so in an extremely innefficient and often grammatically incorrect way; while simply trying to cram as much seemingly incoherent text into a post which ultimately is saturated with deeper meanings which are only revealed on a larger scale which ultimately is pointless due to the lack of substantiation towards the original idea."

I cannot think of anything worse than adding this.

Perhaps making a "post your free porn links" forum:p

Just for the record, pretty much anything said by someone with an avatar in an xmas hat is being ignored.
