Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

For example I have a question about a game in Android, which is a suitable candidate for both stackoverflow (More answer) and Game Development (Specific and experts answers). So how to ask it? Should I ask on both the site or ask at one place and post the link in the second question in the second site?

You just said yourself that Stack Overflow provides more answers, but Game Development may have more specific answers from people with more expertise. Which would you prefer? I'm sure you're not looking for unspecific or answers from less experienced developers.

In any case, do not post on both sites. Choose one site, and post your question there. That's it. Do not even post a question on the other site just to link to the former. It creates duplication, noise, and hassle for people on both sites.

That's why I asked here first to not to create a duplicate question. The problem is I just assumed that there might be an advantage on asking question on stackoverflow due to more answer, but sometimes the answers are not good enough, so what to do in that case. –  noob Apr 3 '12 at 7:26
    
But what to do if want to understand different views and perspectives from different sites? We can get different views of people which might help to somebody with same problem. –  Somnath Muluk Apr 3 '12 at 8:57

@SomnathMuluk - ask a new question tailored to the site you're posting on. –  ChrisF Apr 3 '12 at 9:06
