Well growing up I never really knew about reviews or was interested in them at all I guess.
I just got games I saw my friends play, commercials for or parents just bought randomly.
Even now I read reviews sometimes.
But I don't let them always decide what I play for me.
I usually give everything a go through, if I really like it I will purchase it.
And with all the Nintendo hits, those are a given.
I'll buy em no matter what.
But yeah, its amazing how many people care about reviews.
I know its good to get other people's opinions and talk about games etc, but too many people abide by them all the time.
Many reviews sometimes come from people who never played games before/or never played that genre before etc.
Stuff like that happens, so they're not always the best opinions in the first place.
