Where do you get your game reviews from?

Going through my game collection, I have so many games I want to play them in the order of how well reviewed they are. Is Metacritic the best place to get review scores or would you recommend another site for reviews?

I never listen to people, if I have an interest in a game I usually just watch a gametrailer video and make up my own mind.

It's all personal opinion.

Assassins creed got some bad reviews because it was too repetitive and bland in colour etc, It's one of my favourite games ever though.

To answer your question, I don't know sorry, I don't read any :D

I listen to GiantBomb podcast. But it's not about reviews, they talk about games. They talk about all games, even games they don't like because sometimes they are discussing why they don't like it, and hashing out why otherwise good games sometimes turn out crap.

So they may spend an hour talking about a game that the pretty much just don't like. And that doesn't mean that it makes me not like it, sometimes it's a game where it makes me interested in it and I may enjoy it. And sometimes they're most harsh on the games that they love, for the same reason... discussing what they don't like about it.

I mainly use IGN, Gamespot and GamesRadar. I'll use and read other reviews, but those are the primary ones, and of course I watch previews and gameplay footage and use my own judgment and experience with games over all these years and make my decisions.
