As long as you stick to the wholesome subreddits, you should be fine. But yeah, some of the people on there are awful
Yeah IGN is VERY active, but happy to see JoyFreak on this list! Happy to have found this site :)
Activity can be a blessing and a curse for a forum, depending how it's managed. I used to run the community side of one of the larger gaming forums out there ( before it shut down, and it was exceptionally active in its' early days, and then less so as things like cheat codes started to fade out of gaming. The community was close-knit, but highly politicized in how it was run, meaning a strict ruleset and low tolerance for just about any infractions. It helped keep the community active, but also less toxic than what you'd find elsewhere on the internet. So while I'd love to see a community of mine reach levels of activity like IGN or GameFAQs, I can't imagine the work that goes on to police it, and I also can't imagine it being a place free of the toxicity that tends to invade larger sites like them.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings, that's a pretty solid list of some of the larger gaming forums out there!
I don't know why but I don't like IGN and Gamespot forum
Though their website is very informative
I am on a couple of forums mentioned here, for example, joyfreak (of course),, MMORPG, gaming latest, and minecraft. Even though I am not doing a lot of posting on these forums, I check these forums once ina while and make some posts.
