I have certain consoles, and I'm always looking for recommmendations on certaing genres I like. Is gaming stackexchange the place to ask for these recommendations? Who better than the users here to give good opinions about games?

Say: What 2 player game can you recommend on GameCube? What fighting game do you recommend on Nintendo DS?

I know I could spend hours browsing the "big sites" to find their rankings and stuff, but they're never as real as community opinions...


Discussion of what sort of games you might like or are similar to other games really belongs in a community environment where people are able to get a good feel for one another. There are a number of forums, news groups, chat rooms and message boards that would be ideal for this kind of interaction.

Depending on which of these means you are most comfortable with I would suggest starting there.

By comparison the question "What 2 player game can you recommend on GameCube?" isn't really a question so much as a discussion topic on the subject of 2 player games on the GameCube. Which are good, which are bad, which are easy to pick up for new players, etc. While it is being phrased as a question it is not one and not really appropriate for a serious QA site like Gaming.SE.
