I still recommend the marathon.org/forums. Sometimes they get a bit silly, but for the most part, it's intelligent and LONG discussions. The forums are also quite comprehensive over there. They have slowed down quite a bit since the new Halo forums, but somebody always manages to get them jump started again.
Two of my absolute favorites are the old Usenet newsgroups, alt.games.myth and alt.games.marathon (alt.games.mac.marathon has been dead for quite some time). Of course, the Marathon group discusses Marathon *and* Halo, but it is very friendly and established. The Myth usenet group gets its share of newbies, but not too many are lamers, and they are treated well. In both newsgroups, several people "lose their serial # a week", but this has become more humorous than flame-provoking. :)
As for gaming in general with a definite lack of Bungie bias (our games are rarely mentioned), I recommend a list called games-l. It is moderated and its rules are strictly enforced. These rules generally apply to spam and talking about piracy or advocating it, and also blatantly insulting someone personally for lack of a VERY good reason.
Several professional developers are also on the list (such as a developer from the anticipated Wheel of Time game).
To find it, I'd recommend going under the computer game section of yahoo and looking for "games-l list" or something similar. It's hosted by an adult at Brown University, for whatever that's worth.
I also stop in at our other fan forums, but not much activity takes place there.
And it goes without saying that the Marathon story page must be consulted every day. :-)
Hope that helped some ... and wonder if Halo fans will now overwhelm games-l list ... that would be kinda cool. ;) ... depending on who it was I guess ...
