Here at Kotaku, we run all sorts of stories. Video game news and reviews, culture stories, stories about Japan, stories about the history of video games, funny posts about snack foods. But no matter what stories we're running, there seems to be a consensus out there in Internetland: "Kotaku commenters are the worst."
I've been writing here full-time for almost six months, and I have to say, I don't believe this to be true at all.
I'm not just saying that to curry favor, either! Our commenters are passionate, intense, and dedicated. Some of them are a little bit crazy. Some of them are a lot crazy. Sometimes, there is vociferous disagreement with what an author has chosen to write, as with, say, my kinda different review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. And it must be said that every now and then, the threads get straight-up appalling, as in this feature about Felicia Day.
