Earlier this week Adam Orth left his job as a creative director at Microsoft Studios after a series of his controversial remarks about internet access gained wide media attention. But it wasn't a traditional publication that originally brought attention to Orth's comments — it was the gaming forum NeoGAF. Edge Magazine profiled the over-a-decade old website and spoke with owner Tyler Malka about the highs and lows of the NeoGAF community's powerful collective voice. He's stayed at forum members' homes and seen members get married, but he's also governed the community across a share of high profile clashes with members of the gaming industry — events that have made the NeoGAF community appear distrustful of the very industry that draws it together.
