why is gamefaqs the premier forum for Dark Souls?

Other online communities usually have their premier forums tied to some kind of game specific page. Like Capcom fighting games have shoryuken.com

But despite there being a few sites with forums just dedicated to the Souls series, gamefaqs remains the premier forum where all the most prominent members of the community post.

Share your theories as to why this is the case.

Because we're all such nice people.

Because we all wanted to look up something in the game at some point, and GameFAQs is one of the best places to read comprehensive guides about games.

Is it?

I thought the Dark Souls reddit board was pretty popular too.

So is the /vg thread on 4chan.

Kinda saddens me that gfaqs isn't the premier forum for more games. The forums are serviceable, and all can have a voice, it's pretty decent.
For in much wisdom is much grief, and he that increaseth knowledge, increaseth sorrow.

There are some other forums that you'd think would be more popular but aren't. I'd say mostly because the regulars on them aren't very accepting of new members. They tend to have elitist attitudes and seem like they got something to prove.

Even though this forum is filled with wise guys and smart-@$$#$, it's the best forum out there.

Everyone here is pretty nice even though they joke and troll a lot.
