No one likes to come to a new board which has 100 forums and over half of them are empty, it just doesn't work out well. Keep it simple, keep it easy. Make some more general forums to start off with, you can always expand later. An example is you have a Gaming forum. You dont start with a category for each console, or a forum for each GAME.. That's just silly.
