I tend to do two things before buying most games - I focus on video reviews (written reviews of a visual medium feels like a job only half done IMO) and I watch a lot of them. But I also know who's to believe and who's to take with a grain of salt. Rank your trusted sources for video game reviews.

Mine generally goes like this:
1. Zero Punctuation
2. Giant Bomb
3. Gamespot
4. Gametrailers
5. IGN

X. Razorfist, AlphaOmegaSin, EpicNameBro, DMJared, LarryBundy

I used X because I don't give a rat ass about ranking my people. If they weigh in on a game I'm thinking of, I'm hearing what they say to see what their take on it is. They have tastes similar enough to mine to do so.

i like igns layout better so i go there sometimes for gaming news. i never look at their reviews though. id give some respect for gamespot for being the only honest review site when they reviewed zelda skyward sword. i think they were the only site that actually played the game and reviewed it objectively rather then giving it a 10 before even playing it because its zelda. they were the only accurate review i read on the game.

so

gamespot
ign

dont even know of the others aside from gamer reviews from individuals on youtube

Giant Bomb is hands-down the best video game related website, period.
"A game's worth is not measured by it's replay-value, nor it's length, but by the quality of the experience you had while playing."
