    Good old days...
    I guess I haven't grown up then? A game that looks good and in a pretty box regardless of what people say, I'll buy it.

    Reviews are a good indication as to what to expect from a game at the least. (I liked Red steel which got "not great" reviews - until it crashed on my save file and I had to re-start the piece of sh*t. Which I didn't - just traded it instead...)
    Hence renting? I'm not saying if you find a game that looks interesting, go buy it, I'm just saying everyone should at least try a game they're interested in, not just ignore it because the (in my opinion) idiots at the review sites didn't like it.

    I remember those days, I think I only started looking at reviews since I got a PS3...

    Simple: When you're young, someone is buying the games for you. As you get older the chance of that happening decreases and therefore you are forced to spend your money wisely.
