Other SEs are discussing which questions are too general or easily answerable by google/wikipedia etc.
I was wondering the same thing about gaming. Someone had pointed this out about WoW earlier. And I agree that we should answer whenever we can improve the collective knowledge of the community.
But lately I have feel it is becoming more and more an interactive walk through place. Basically, here are the things that I feel need more clarification
- Solving puzzles, most of these can be found easily in walk throughs / youtube.
- Stuff that can be answered as a direct link off to the wikia for that particular game. Esp. in regard to spoilers/stories, unless it is a clarification of a subtle point.
