I usually check here. I've found that PCH, on the whole, has good taste.

I read gamer reviews here, good and bad.

I read a few "professional" reviews.

I watch youtube reviews AND "let's play" videos.

After all that, I make up my mind. It's kind of a long process, but I haven't been disappointed in years.

How do you form an opinion with no information?

The biggest problem I have is that if I actually read reviews AND watched let's plays and really did thorough research, I wouldn't by anything because most games are s*** now.

Neither, there's this new thing called reading the actual reviews. Scores are for the lazy and illiterate.

I ask again - How do you have an opinion of a game you know nothing about? The tc is asking how you decide to buy a game. You can't have an opinion if you haven't played it or read anything about it.
