Well? - Results (61 votes)
A) Yes, if I can't resell any games, I will rely more heavily on reviews to avoid being stuck with a game I don't like.

B) Maybe. If there is a playable demo, I might not need any reviews.

Just curious. If people would depend upon reviews more heavily, it would be more important that the reviews be honest.

I doubt that much of the gamers will tell you the game its awesome but in reality its crap, example MoH W and others i won't mention due blind fan boys here.

Oh i vote B or i just watch the game on youtube.

IF the used game thing does indeed happen, and you actually care about reviews, I would say you'll need to do a lot more research before purchasing in the future. Pay attention to actual gamer's reviews, someone who goes in depth in his\her review as to why something is good or not good. Soon, the IGN, etc. and other 'corporate' reviews won't mean squat because they'll most likely be biased and backed without any real credibility.

I think demo's / trials become more important.

Each game should allow you to play for a half hour to and hour before hand to let you get a feel for it.

Buying used games at a cheaper price could provide incentive for a gamer to try something out without the risk of wasting $60, if used games are blocked then you have no such luxury

I strongly disagree with this. Gamers have a tendency to say games are the greatest or the worst game they have ever played, even if they have never played the game. They rarely go into detail about what is good or bad about a game.

The problem with reviews is that most people don't read them but just skip to the score. By reading several reviews you can get a good idea of what people liked and didn't like about the game and can use that information to decide if the game is for you. A reviewer may ding a game's score for a feature you love or praise a game for something you hate. This is why you must read the review and ignore the score.

Of course, playing a demo is by far the best way to decide if you will like a game or not.
