SharePoint 2013 comes with a community site template. This type of site can be used to hold forum-like discussions.

Members of the site can browse and discover relevant content by exploring categories, sorting discussions by popularity, or by viewing only posts that have a best reply.

Members gain reputation points by participating in the community, such as starting discussions and replying to them, liking posts, and specifying best replies.

This video shows off the various features of the community site in SharePoint 2013.
