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

always yes

But I like to see driving games and their handling via videos as a final stamp

Never. If I'm interested at all I will find some gameplay video footage. Preferably just someone playing the game rather than the developer showing it off.

Never. I don't care what a game looks like. I need to know how it plays.

Do you rent if there's no demo?

Most of the time, but sometimes I prefer a short video. Just to see the game in motion.
Who needs a signature anyway?

Need video and a written breakdown of game play mechanics and a run down of the game's strengths and weaknesses. I need to see and know how it plays before I purchase it.
Know that if you allow someone to take advantage of you, they might make it a habit.
