Visit These Game Forums

There’s a brief forum list I consider useful for beginner (and more experienced) game developers

Top 2 (in my list):
IndieGamer (great place, professional attitude – business & development)
GameDev (another good place, lots of content)

Couple of more interesting places to check:
iDevGames (mac site – worth visiting)
SHMUP-Dev (relatively new site with increasing popularity – mostly about arcade shooters, but there’s also other kind of content)
IGDA (industry related)

Game engines & specific engine forums:
DevMaster (great place to check for game engines)
GarageGames forum (nice place, especially if you want to use Torque in your game development)
BlitzBasic & Codersworkshop (If you want fast & easy game creation tools, check these sites)

There are others. Feel free to contribute & give your hints.

  1. These are developers forums but you should work over gamers forums. BTW search engines index most of forum pages, do’t be lazy – fill your signature with resonable amount of links and key words :).

  2. @mario.bb: in terms of *productivity* – I agree that forums can be something where you just spend too much time. But in terms of *learning something new* I think forums are great places to visit.

  3. I would like to say: STAY AWAY FROM FORUMS!!

    lol, jk really. But there is a little thruth to this, atleast
    for me, forums and the internet in general,
    have had a huge inpact on the productivity I once
    use to have due to the lack of an internet connection.

  4. Thanks for the great links! I’ll be gradually checking them out. The one to Codersworkshop needs to be fixed though.
