In no way are we accusing people with 'different opinions' of being Nazis - this piece is a discussion about the portrayal of literal Nazis and the Holocaust in videogames. It's not only relevant to the article, it's what the article is actually about.
I was confused by Ananym's comment at first--I actually thought it might be in reply to a moderated comment or some such. I just couldn't figure out who was being "namecalled".
It seems some people are taking offense to "Nazism is once again on the rise, hiding under the guise of the ‘Alt-Right’", as far as I can tell? Which is odd given that the term alt-right was literally coined by Richard Spencer, an individual that actively promotes "peaceful" ethnic cleansing and white "identitarianism". I mean, if even Breitbart calls him "center of alt-right thought"...
you just don't understand, this sites purpose is literally in the title and you're trying to diverge into other things that have absolutely nothing at all to do with it. look, we get it, you want to be real journalists and talk about pressing issues, including politics, but you should ask yourselves is this really the platform for it...? please don't strive to become Kotatu or RPS, you're better than that.
Certainly flattered that you think we're better than Kotaku and RPS, even if we're not striving to be them :)
We do believe that this is the platform for a discussion of this sort, just as it's the platform for news and reviews and funny gifs. It's relevant to PC gaming in that we're discussing the portrayal of these in videogames. If you don't want to read these kinds of articles that's fine (the headlines should always be clear enough to allow you to sidestep them!), and hopefully you can find plenty of other stuff on PCGN to enjoy.
Just for Destiny 2! Much like with the impressions + guides, we're aware that a lot of our audience are keen to keep up with the game during this painful interim period between console and PC launches.

I think there's a degree of truth in this, but I genuinely do think the bosses are easier on the whole. I was able to use my starting sword for the whole game!
It's the Dunning-Kruger effect; you're underestimating your own skill level and passing it off to the game. Just because you're not a onebro doesn't mean you're a total noob either. The game may very well be easier but you (and I) are not in a position to objectively verify that.
If you really want to check you need to find a newbro and have them play the beginnings of both.
