Are you gonna let reviews influence your purchase

[ Edited ]
18 replies 553 views Edited Nov 11, 2012

Never have, never will

 

I only watch/read reviews to see others opinions on the game, but it never affects whether I buy it or not

 

but I know a lot off people refer to review sites and metacritic to determine a buy

 

are you one of those peeps?

 

also, when's the first review?

Not at all. I base my purchases basically on the amount of time it takes me to make the money for a game I'm interested in versus the amount of time I'll likely spend with the game. I make 60 in 3 and a half hours. I'll probably spend at minimum 500 hours with this game based on my anticipation for it and my time with the beta, and twice that depending on DLC. I think I'll get my money's worth lol. Reviews are one man's opinions but I don't share the same interests as the majority of the general public and hence, reviews don't influence me or my decisions to purchase things. In fact, after playing many games that have less than favorable reviews (Gravity Rush got a 6 somewhere), I often find myself disagreeing with a lot of points. Reviewers are usually pretty negative unless it's the tried and true.

Sidenote: using that logic, umvc3 was a steal.

I don't have any memory if there was ever reviews that considered my purchase. By that, I mean even once. So I'll say no because I know there are some PS3 games I intend on getting which didn't affect me.

 

As for reviews. I think it'll most likely be when the game comes out. Some of them actually do that but it could be days before the game comes out or when it actually comes out.

NO

i do see reviews to see the opinion though

if you do your research on a game youll know if youll like it or not.

No. I have it fully paid off and hope a midnight release will be available (doubtful at this point considering the other midnight releases that week).

 

I even have the day AFTER planned out with 5 of my friends. They have never touched the game, but are interested in a 4-player SSB-style brawler.
