    ... reading any comments thread for any game any more on this site? They are all, universally, depressing identical.

    Comment 1 - short, not very funny tho it tries, mostly harmless.
    Comment 2 - longer, interesting, worth a read if you're lucky.
    Comment 3 - Fanboy bilge.
    Comment 4 - Troll finger-farts.
    Comment 5 - repeat 3 and 4 until all meaning is lost.

    I remember a time when the fields were green and pleasant, debate was honest and fun (i hope someone is whistling the hovis theme!) and the Eurogamer forums and comment threads were a friendly, sociable place to be... ah those long lost, halcyon days of yore...

    Now its all "shitcock" and "lolnub". GIFT in full effect. I hate it.

    True, but there are still gems to be had. You just have to sift through the garbage a bit.

    Much like anything in life, really... ooh, shiney...

    To be fair most comments threads whilst interesting tended to be interested because of the off-topic conversation rather than on-topic.

    Also I'm sure someone will link the WWE comments thread which dates from that time.

    Still even the forum is pretty polluted these days :(

    Too many tard hunters have hung up their hats and put the safeties on the blunderbuss.

    Sadly those comment threads were ruined when the site changed so only registered users could comment. All the tard posts are gone.

    Donit.

    Unless they're in webarchive, but I can't be arsed looking.

    You hear comments like this, but its mostly the established posters who are guilty of what you are complaining about.

    That leads me to the conclusion that either:

    Nostalgia aint what it used to be

    or

    Without your steadying influence, they all went off the rails
