And which ones have lost credibility (or have none) in your opinion? Does the Wii U Board still hold IGN in high regards?

I often find myself agreeing with Destructoid the most, but there are times when I completely disagree with them.

Kotaku reviews aren't bad either.

Only ones that give wii u games good reviews. And thats until they give a high profile wii u game a bad review, in which case I will go back to hating them
If you disagree with the views expressed in this post, feel free to put me on ignore.

Gamespot and metacritic for the most part, but even then I depend on what I see from trailers and user reviews to buy games or if it's from a franchise I like. I also buy on just pure gut sometimes if that makes any sense.

The main reason why I don't let reviews sway my decision is because of Dynasty Warriors. I love those games to death and they usually average 5/10's.

since there are so many, I'll just say my most trusted is Gameinformer. About 90% of the time, their views fall in line with my own.

The one I don't trust at all is Gamespot, for a number of reasons. The quality of that site in general just keeps falling imo. It used to be G4 for me, but since they're pretty much gone anyways, Gamespot is the site I never trust.

I like Gametrailers reviews the most. They usually acknowledge everything good and everything bad about a game. Which is good, since it allows me to identify which issues might bother me to a greater extent or what features might be underwhelming to me as well.

I also like Joystiq's, IGN's, Kotaku's, and a few other lesser known.

Metacritic is literally the only one I will glance at.

Other than that, I don't trust reviews.
Ask me about my opinion.

I give "professional" review sites 0 credibility. I generally check Gfaqs for gamer reviews after about 2 weeks have passed and see the overall verdict based on that.

Most sites are occasionally painfully biased and I just don't trust them anymore
