So, you're interested in a game. You see a review, or a collection of reviews with an average score of ??? What is the lowest review score that you'll still accept and consider playing the game?

Like for me, anything under an 8 is an automatic waste of my time. I won't bother. So for me, I voted 8.

Really? So if everyone you ever talked to about a game said that game was horrible, 1/10 quality, you'd still consider playing it?

This is silly, because there's always troll reviews that hurt the average.

The lowest score from a trusted reviewer I'll accept is a 7. 7 usually means fun, but has flaws or isn't for everyone, which is fine by me if I know it's a game I'll like.
Sanity is a one trick pony, all you get with it is rational thought, but with crazy the sky's the limit.

Okay, consider trusted reviews then for your choice...obviously. I don't trust user reviews at all.

Lets put it this way. Numerical reviews are absolutely worthless to me. Well thought out, substantive critiques carry more weight.
If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

I listen to reviews for information, not scores. I've enjoyed some games that got terrible review scores.
Intel i5 4670K | Corsair 16GB DDR3 | Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB | ASUS 27" 1440p
Corsair 480GB SSD | WD 4TB HDD | Fractal Design R4 | Corsair 750MX | Win7Ult 64
