So my question is, where did everyone go? Is there some great video game music forum that I'm missing? If so, I haven't found it. It all seems pretty strange to me, because game music has increased in popularity over the years.
I'm aware of ffshrine, but it's pretty lame. It doesn't even have a dedicated VG music only forum, and there's more posts in the download threads rather than discussion threads. Surely there must be others.
This is a very expensive and often frustrating hobby, so it's possible some people just don't want anything to do with it anymore.
Some people start a family, so that leaves little time for posting on forums.
I occasionally post at FFshrine, vgmdb, and OC Remix. Many years ago, I may have posted at gamingforce. I also used to post at slightlydark. Somehow, I have been able to get the same name at each site. I probably wouldn't be able to get "Jodo Kast" at any gaming site or Star Wars site, for sure.
This website was the first site where I made a "post". It was because of this website that I found I needed to use ebay, which required an email address. So I had to make an email.
Some things I really like about this forum are the lack of ads and large signatures with pictures. FFshrine, OC Remix, and vgmdb can sometimes be incredibly irritating due to the signatures. The presentation of the forums here is superior to the rest. It's easier on the eyes.
