Because I posted it on a thread on Era

Sadly, it turns out that a lot of them just read the headline and jump to conclusions just as much as GameFAQs, Reddit, Youtube, and NeoGAF. I was hoping that over there would be better than the ones I just talked about, but nope, it's not really much different over there. Also, stay the fuck out of political threads
. Because just like all the other places, it'll either become a circlejerk, or a clusterfuck.
And a lot of them seem to have a misguided idea of what it means to be "Good" at God of War. It's more than just completing the game by blocking and attacking.
Trust me, I would fucking love it if you leapt in there, and proceeded to shoot them down. Or you could do that here, and I could just post it over there on behalf of you, because Era is extremely restrictive about who comes over to post. No personal emails or anything, no, you gotta submit, say, a school email (I used the email that my elementary school gave us) or workplace email.
The main advantage that Era has over the other ones listed is that games discussion is both really central (Reddit is mostly just for news, and truegaming isn't amazingly big), really active (I honestly underestimated how quickly you would get responses), and the answers to questions generally tend to be 0.0005% less dumb.
Reddit is best when it comes to game news, and Era is best (A very, very, very
low bar to clear, by the way) for centralized discussion and questions.
And wow, this post got really out of hand.
