Never understood the dislike of Kotaku. They have a bunch of talented writers there. I wish Patrick Luck.
I stopped going there a few years ago when they published a story explaining how to cheat on your spouse and not get caught, providing links to cheaters dating sites and gross shit like that.
Is that reason enough?
I doubt that a gaming site published such an article and that you are either a liar or clicked on a link to a Gawker article.
People don't like Kotaku for one of two reasons:
1. They publish a shitton of content, which includes a lot of pointless BS.
2. They're "SJWs."
I would say the overwhelming number of Kotaku-haters fall into the latter, because a lot of people in gaming still can't deal with games being treated seriously.
