I always take a good look at what the critics say because they give great input on the technical aspects of the game IE: gameplay, graphics, sound, fluidness. However, my final choice is purely on whether or not I think the game looks interesting. If the story captures me and the gameplay is solid, I'll probably buy it regardless of what the ratings are.

No i buy them because I feel like its going to be good game critics are paid to see how good a game is and sometimes they review a good game and then end up saying it isnt good enough and once u play a demo u end up finding out wow this is really good

I agree with everyone else that the fact that some games are rated highly and that I dont want to play them take world of war craft for instance I tried it and got so bored i fell asleep. I couldnt stand it yet I tryed this new online mmo shin megami tensai online imagine and even though it is free I liked it yet they said it sucked.

listen criticts give reviews based on what they belive to be popular like gta 4 I only bought it because
I liked 3 but then I played it and was disipointed with the length compared to the old games it was short and I dont give a crap that it has multiplayer I want a game that is good for its story and gameplay NOT THE FREAKING MULTIPLAYER exp HALOHALOHALOAHALO.
Dude the game has been out for what a year and a half and they are still giving game of the year and all of that crap people multiplayer shouldnt make a game multiplayer is like the designers being lazy. Exmple Kojima and fox unit made the metal gear solid series the multiplayer didnt get really hot till recently but the games rocked without it. Yet they constantly say halo is better.

Depends on the game. If it's a series I'm fond of, I'll most likely buy it even if it gets semi-bad reviews. Of course there are times when a game gets horribly low scores in which I just skip it entirely, regardless if I like the series or not. It happens.

Yah, most of the time q:
I go to Gamespot to see what's new.
And if it looks interesting i check out the trailer.

The way I see it, Reviewers only enjoy playing one type of game: Anything to do with War/Killing. That tells me a lot about their expectations. Maybe one day if they got some reviewers who are open-minded, I may start to listen.

I dont buy any games that the majority of reviewers give it a grade less then 8. It saves you a lot of money trust me.
