I remember the first time I saw Prototype in action a couple years before it was released, I knew I'd really like it. I personally thought the gameplay was great, even if the story was lacking until the end.

Onimusha 3, the opening. Even though I knew that wasn't any sort of indication of the gameplay it was just so awesome I thought I have to give this game a try. Even though it isn't the sort of game I usually play I didn't regret getting it.

Prototype and Godhand

The latter was one of the best purchases ever.

HELL. YES.

Godhand was the king of beat'em ups. We need a new one now.

Been gaming over 30 years. All I need is a few minutes of gameplay to know with 100% accuracy if I will enjoy a game or not.

I have been like this for years. I know what I enjoy and what I don't.

I find it odd other gamers need scores, multiple opinions, in depth reviews of other gamers opinions. It's like they don't know their own tastes.


Heh, well said. The reviews and word-of-mouth give me insight to games I can't always get my hands on, though. Through those, I can better determine if it's worth the time to acquire and try said game.

GTA V. Though to be fair, I didn't need to see a video to know it would warrant a purchase.

FF XIII. It was horrible, so now I know not to make that stupid mistake ever again.


lol nice.

The name Final Fantasy alone used to be enough for an instant buy.

After XIII, XIII-2 and XIV, never again.

Making guns illegal will end gun violence right? They should make murder illegal too. No more murder. They should make rape illegal! No more rape! Drugs too...

This. It's funny ppl like to pull the "you don't know how the game is unless you've tried it" card. I do know how the game is just from a few minutes of gameplay. Playing it always confirmed my suspicions. Think about it, do you need to watch any Michael Bay movie to know how exactly they are like?
