Sad days now since you can barely trust " User Written' reviews

Used to I could trust them, but lately with all of these fiasco's now theyre just as bad as some of the "professional reviews". Some gamers these days. Kinda makes me sad to be considered one.

I do typing exclusively on my Tablet, so expect errors in my posts. At least until I get my new Laptop.

So what, we should base purchases entirely on gameplay footage and marketing spiel? Not every game gets a demo, and out of those that do many fail to give a fair indication on the quality and length of the actual game. Reviews are an important part of the tapestry of things that people should consider before buying a game and to discount them completely is rather naive.

But you're taking someone else words for it. That someone have a completely different view than you.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

So you read multiple reviews, get a wider view on the matter. I never said to decide whether to buy a game or not based on whether the first review you read tells you to or not but rather that in order to gauge whether you should buy it or not you should at least consider what people who have played it have to say.

Metacritic user scores and reviews are a complete joke. Everything is either a 0 or a 10 in there. Black or white. No middle ground whatsoever. Barely anyone even remotely tries to keep some type of sane objective outlook on anything.

What? How do you review a game before you buy it? This is a paradox.
