Any gaming review site that thrives on ad revenue is worthless. Gamespot, IGN and Gametrailers are definitely amongst the worst though.
The only thing I trust is myself. I'll watch gameplay videos to see if it looks like something I'll enjoy, play demos and get impressions from actual gamers (see: not journalists) that I believe have similar taste to me. Nothing else is worth listening to. --- www.vgcollect.com/jobocan - My Collection
Pretty much. Unless its a franchise that I know I'll buy regardless, but that is becoming less frequent. TBH i watch gameplay footage and video reviews because I don't want to read lol --- With friends like you, who needs enemies?
I watch a lot of gametrailers because I love their format, but I often disagree with their opinions.
IGN is the one site I don't trust at all. If one gaming website ever let ad money influence their coverage, it's them.
Destructoid and Giant Bomb get my respect, and I love Yahtzee though I don't take his scathing reviews seriously. That being said, some of Yahtzee's favorite games are my favorite games(e.g. Silent Hill 2, Portal, Bioshock, etc.) so when he falls in love with a game, like Spec Ops: The Line, I pay attention.
