    Excluding anything related to console/game hacking, mods, exploits or game news, what other reasons do you come here for? Do you come here to chat with people? Maybe find someone to play games with, or talk about a specific game with, or other non related game stuff. I'm just curious to gauge the interest of the people on the site not related to most of the content that is posted on the front page which mostly are what I mentioned excluding from this conversation. :unsure:

    The community, and the friends I've made here over time. I stuck for the best.
    Honestly, GBAtemp isn't that bad once you look past the Nintendo forums, and the few loud idiots.

    I stick around forever searching for new roleplay opportunities.

    But I suppose on a serious note, I love user reviews. I love seeing how other people write, it's exciting and interesting to me. I also visit for the people; again simply interesting to observe. This place is just too interesting to abandon lol

    The community, for sure. That's one thing GBAtemp has above any other forum, the tight-knit people. I'm here to post news and help the site to the best of my capabilities, but while I do that, I'm also here to talk to all the nice users on the temp.

    The millions and millions of dollars I make writing reviews B-)

    The community, as mentioned various times, even though I ignore a majority of it.

    I hardly touch the homebrew section these days. Past the 3DS, homebrew seems like something of a lost cause at this point. No offense to the people in the scene, it's just me drifting away from the concept.

    In addition to what you just said, I stick around for the political/philosophical discussions and general threads, which tend to get pretty interesting pretty quick.

    Also, there are some cool people on here, so it's hard to leave with that in mind.

    So, why do I stay here? I stay here for gaming news and discussion, as well as the weird, sometimes disturbing, but always fascinating antics people are getting themselves into here. It certainly gives this place a personality you couldn't find on a more large-scale gaming site/forum.

    To read any thread that catched my eye, while I'm at work things can get pretty boring sometimes, so I just enter here and read anything.
