Top 15 Forums for Gamers with the Friendliest UIs

Are you a gamer? Are you always looking forward for a moment, when you can get back to your computer and dive into the magic world of video games? Are games important to you? Do they help you get rid of stress? Or maybe you can do something absolutely impossible in real life like defeating a dragon, cast a spell on somebody or even save the whole world with all its inhabitants.

If everything said above is true, you must be a part of the gaming community. The gaming community is a so-called “army” of players who communicate, interact and play with each other. And one of the best ways of gamers’ socialization is forums.

Forums are online discussions where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages, like chat rooms. But there are great differences between chat rooms and forums. The messages on forums can be larger than in chat rooms and they often must be approved by a moderator to be posted. Conversations on forums are divided by themes, or jargon “threads”, and each thread can be joined by an infinite number of people. A forum can contain some subforums, each of which may have several topics. Depending on the forum’s settings, users can be anonymous or have to register with the forum and then subsequently log in in order to post messages. On most forums, users do not have to log in to read the existing messages.

There are lots of forums on the Internet, and their quantity is still growing every day. However, some forums’ interfaces are too sophisticated. Sometimes it’s hard to understand how to send a message or how to register on a forum. Some users may be confused by the complexity of the forum’s UI, so they just quit them. However, very often forums with such problems may contain a lot of useful information and are worth visiting.
