i think it's the second option because low scores doesn't mean the game is bad just like great scores doesn't mean the game is good
Swann:This is the last time.I'm tired of running damage control every time he makes a mess
Campbell:Right.You're the control,and if that fails,I'm the damage

People not buying games, especially right at/after release, THAT is what hurts them.

I'm not a market analyst, so I have no idea.
Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.

Reviews hurt more, plenty of people buy games based on scores. Plus Obsidian didn't get their bonuses because of Fallout New Vegas's Metacritic.

A lot of highly negative reviews would be more likely to put me off buying a game than a bunch of histrionic whiners on a message board.

Reviews are a metric of quality. Sales are a metric of popularity.

Low critic scores usually mean a game is bad. Low user scores indicate nerd rage.

Negative word of mouth/user reviews.

If all your friends tell you a game is **** you're much less likely to buy it. Assuming of course you have any respect for your friends' opinions/taste.
