The importance of forums

I was talking with Emmanuel (funpause owner) yesterday about the importance of having a forum. He objected that since he makes prevalently casual games, he thinks that his customers would find a forum quite useless.
Instead for software houses like mine who makes complex games, definitely not casual (like UBM or Magic Stones) having a forums can really help.
Help both you and other players/customers.
You first as developer: as you may know if you’re a programmer, there’s always a very well hidden bug somewhere in the code, and more people can test and easily report it (like in a forum). I fixed many bugs thanks to comments of people in forums. I also post there if “that bug XX was already fixed in version 1.31” so even other people who have same problem can just take a look and find a solution for their problem.
