Do You Buy Your Games Based Off The Review's Game Sites/Magazines Give You?

Yes and No.....when i was looking at review on a game they give it good score, 8.5, but comments in the bottom say that the game is not worth buying. so i ask myself. should i follow the review or just buy it cuz i like it. i usually don't base my game buying on reviews unless the game is the "most anticipating game of the year" becuz sometimes they just say that becuz it has a huge fan base. but other games that don't have a huge hype like other games i tend to just see what the reviews say just to see some game footage. sometimes i put them aside in my head if i want to use the review as my guide to buying games.

Nope. I don't care what other people think. Critics are paid to rate games, and I don't trust their judgment. A lot of games are unfairly bashed, and other games get WAAAAY too much credit. I've played any enjoyed games that have been rated a 4/10 and hated games rated 10/10 *coughhalocough*

Sometimes I listen to them and sometimes I don't. I don't trust Adam Sessler's game reviews. He gives half ass reviews without finishing a game.

I only count the level and quality of trolls the game has on /v/.

not much.
i lol'd when they gave gta4 a 10/10. shit was not that great.
they aslo really overhyped the sonic 06 glitches. when i played it, it really wasn't that bad. i only play it till you meet up with knuckles but there was almost no glitches on my run except for a wall glitch where your stuck on the wall for a while.

Depends, when I see a game in the store and think it looks good, i check on the internet if the games is worth buying or not. When it is over 5 out of ten, then i consider it. Also depends what the critics wrote.

Well, if it's a game I've been anticipating for awhile, I'll buy it whether the reviews or good or bad. As for the others, I typically check out the reviews.

Dude I have freakn wonderfull news, if your not rich and can't take chance's, theres these AWESOME things that let you RENT games for a small fee, so you can TRY IT YOURSELF, before you buy it, and if it was good and short you didn't waste your money, if it sucked you didn't waste your money, and if it was good now you know what to buy!

NEVER trust review sites, they are paid by companys through advertisements, if they don't give a game a good store they company will pull there ad's, IE if people game GTA 4 the 6/10 or 7/10 it deserved, then Rockstar would say suck my balls I don't pay you no more, then pull ads from whatever place, meaning they get less money.

It's best that you find smaller reviewers, and people who do it for fun or whatever, but you have to make sure there not like baised fanboys or anything. Umm like Yahtzee or something ( for the most part at least, he is baised to RPG's, mostly Japanese ones) Or you could like I said, rent games.
