Feel free to post.

 

I wanted to apologize for posting about that in the last thread and helping to derail things until it got out of hand. I'll be more cautious in the future to refrain from posting about such things in the future without asking first to see if there's interest about labeling such things. Sorry.

Guys...let me brag about my Games Pass backlog because I'm so rich and am drinking the tears of orphans.

 

And I love how off topic discussion complaints leads to more off topic talk than anything else.

This, and they've turned this thread into a festival of ignorance, greed and gluttony.  If you come in here to brag about your backlog while the entire country suffers then I think you're mentally ill or just ignorant. (I mean that, I'm not trolling and I hope you get help)

And tribalism is ridiculous...lol....somehow your post count make you better than other CAGS -LURKERS- and they gang up on anybody who doesn't want to talk about stupid pop culture made for children. 

 

I would like this thread to be about saving money and not throwing it down a hole, and about helping and welcoming EVERYBODY and not bragging about spending your money like a sociopath,it's disgusting and embarrasing. 

 

I can't read this thread a "few regulars" have turned into something completely different. They're ignorant as much as they're smug.

Wanting to ban people cause they haven't seen a TV show while a guy promoting genocide of refugees get to hangs out..lol. Telling people how to use the word "blacks"...lol...I'm talking to you......

when someone mentions their backlog, their usually not bragging. It's a friendly and humorous way to admit they have a problem. i'm sorry that's been lost on you.

Just to be clear, I am not joking or playing a character. I legitimately think a forum thread going off topic is exactly the same as a soccer game being interrupted for a picnic. I constantly see posts from people asking about a game on sale get drowned out by a bunch of "regulars" that want to argue about WWE or some random AV question. That's cool that you want to talk to your little internet buddies and no one else really cares, but I feel bad for the guy trying to decide what the best bang is for his $5 that's being ignored. Like, can you imagine asking for fitness advice on a fitness forum and even there no one wants to listen to you or help you out?

A couple things here. I think it's safe to say that if someone comes to this thread and asks for recommendations, they're generally going to get more than enough. I think what you're getting at is that someone shouldn't necessarily have to ask to know what the best deals. When a new deal is up the discussion about it happens and it only really is light if the deals are really bad or things have been on sale many times in the past. On a forum like this, if someone doesn't see discussion about what they're interested in they can either scrub back through the thread or PARTICIPATE instead of lurking and then complaining when they feel like the thread isn't acting how they want it to with no input (this is not aimed at you but at some of the people supporting your complaints who never otherwise post). As we've said before, there are several other places that are explicitly designed to encourage current deal ONLY discussion. TrueAchievments, Reddit (/xboxone, /greatxboxdeals), SlickDeals. If someone doesn't like or care about the community here, there are other options.

 

Personally, I think you probably would have more of an impact on this thread if you didn't keep posting about reporting people and instead focused on keeping the thread on topic with deal/game specific posts.

 

Finally, I think your fitness forum reference hypothetical is a pretty obvious type of thing that exists in a LOT of forums that have built up communities over time, and that our XBL thread is generally not guilty of this. The only time I see genuine discussion posts be ignored is if something has already been asked/discussed a lot recently, or if no on genuinely knows the answer or has an opinion.

 

One thought that I've had recently on this general topic is how CAG actually presents itself. Anyone that follows CAG's Twitter or Facebook is likely aware of the regular shitposts published about "deals" terrible PSN avatars or ironic gamer gear. I don't think this exactly promotes completely on topic discussion.

There are so many games to play especially if you have Game Pass so why are people so impatient regarding new Games with Gold? Do you have absolutely nothing to play? I find that impossible to believe.


It's not about playing games.

It's about adding games to the backlog.

I managed to get two codes for Rainbow 6 when it first went up, and figured I'd give one away! Like this post and a winner will be chosen sometime later today. Code should work fine, transaction was approved and I received two codes via email.

 

EDIT: contest done!
