Judging by how many threads were started about Ubisoft's upcoming Division (or whatever it was) I have no doubt somebody is on someone's payroll. I don't think anyone gets payed for posting tho.

Yes.

Its common practice called "viral marketing"

Its been done for years now.

 

Company I was working at was one of early adopters. We basically made it big trough fake "hype". And we had one guy on payroll especially for that.

Some actually are. Microsoft actually has hired a few firms that do this kind of thing in the wake of the Xbox One fiasco and have been outed for doing so. Its not an uncommon practice by any means though. Sony, EA, even Funcom as well as others have done the same and will continue to do so.

It's common practice and has been going on for quite some time now, I wish I had more options to screen responses on these forums.

This. I find it funny and sad that sooooooo may of you buy into shameful conspiracy theories to easily. 

Hate to tell you this sport but the mods on this very site has confirmed it as well. I'll gladly dig up a quote if you like

If the OP suspects a poster being a shill then report it.

As for this thread, it will most likely get locked the same way other threads on the subject has been. It's not a popular discussion apparently

It tends to create discussion-killing paranoia when you're constantly wondering if the person disagreeing with you is doing it because they genuinely disagree or because they have a completely disingenuous motive to create/ruin discussion on certain topics.

It's possible that some are.

Some people here Evangelize their choice of game(s) whilst demonizing everything else and so it's easy to imagine them being paid shills.If most of us named names we'd likely all come up with the same ones.

However I believe it just people being Myopic and extremist in their passions whilst behind the anonymity of the internet and nothing sinister.You see this kind of One eyed,intolerant attitude on all subjects on the net especially political ones.

Well, technically, if you've ever made a post while you were at your job or place of work,  then technically you were getting paid to post here.

 

So then yes.

The internet hasn't been about actual discussions for about a decade now.

Every forum, gaming or not, has turned into a I love it, I hate it argue fest. Every forum has a ton of users that go nuts at any tease, any hype and just go nuts with it.

Go read the forum or article comments on anything that deals with politics. If the story is about something related to Democrats then Republicans will make comments trashing democrats without even reading the article. If the story is about Republicans the Democrats will do the same thing. Look at a tech forum when a new Apple product is announced. The fanboys go insane talking about how it will be the next greatest thing on Earth. The haters go on rants about how much Apple sucks.

 

People don't discuss things anymore and people don't sit back and critically look at teasers/early info. Instead everyone yells at everyone else and everyone takes a tiny tease and turns it into the most amazing or the most horrible thing ever.

I'm pretty sure every thread created in the LFG subforum is from a paid forum user.

 

They describe the game they want someone to say and then regular or other paid users fill in the answer they were after.

Possibly, yet if they are I doubt it's those theory-crafting ideas about an upcoming game that has their interest. That's simply a result of no solid information available for a title. I'd say that would also be a waste of time. Overly negative or positive opinions being spread all over on the other hand...

lol tell that to my girlfriend.

One Friday evening we are sitting on the couch, I'm on her laptop and I'm just making a last post before we commence with "date night". She just happened to look over my shoulder and see my post count. She then asked "are those really all your posts?" all the while assuming her best "marge simpson" face.

needless to say I had to think fast and deflect the conversation. "Hey let's go out to dinner on me!"

I'm so smooth!
