About

NeoGAF is an Internet discussion forum dedicated to video game-related topics. Forum members have participated in the creation and proliferation of Internet memes and are particularly active during the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). The forum is known for having strict moderation, with users waiting months to be approved as a “junior member” and even longer to become regular members. The NeoGAF logo is a green and orange colored circle and has been included in the Nintendo DS puzzle game Scribblenauts/ as an Easter egg.

In June 2013, GameTrailers did an episode on NeoGAF.


History

The video game news website Gaming-Age[9] established the Gaming-Age Forums (GAF) with UBB forum software in 1999. After holding a fundraiser for the forums in the spring of 2004, GAF received new hosting and software. On April 4th, 2006, GAF was relaunched as “NeoGAF” and received the new domain NeoGAF.com.[10] The new site featured “Gaming”[1] and “Off-topic”[2] sub forums with the “Gaming Community” and “Off-topic Community” sections added later.

“So, I’m a pedophile because I don’t want to play Dudebro, My Shit is Fucked Up So I Got to Shoot/Slice You II: It’s Straight-Up Dawg Time?”[7]
