I guess it's a tiny baby elephant and I guess it wanted a bath?

It's like in real life, when someone in the room is talking/expressing when a mean person (like, me) takes a picture.

Read the reviews. 

I don't read reviews. Game journalism died in 2002 as far as I'm concerned. If you mean user reviews, then I don't even consider those worth existing.

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

So basically you go into every game purchase without any information other than what the developer and publisher provide? That doesn't seem like a more informed way of going about things.

 

I just tend to look for reviews that I can identify with. Most of the people here fit that mold, and rarely lead me astray.

You can usually get a good general idea of a game by comparing the mutual points of more reputable game journaIists. I usually also look at the middling user reviews: 4 to 7/10, though it depends on how the other reviews average; those are usually the ones that try and list both positive and negative points instead of fanboying or hating on it without reason.

How enlightened of you. Of course, I imagine those videos are made by reviewers and users, so maybe you do have a wee bit of reliance of game journalists and users in order to make your decisions.  :dancing:

You still rely on their content.

I don't think we're on the same page. I don't consider reviews "content". user reviews are completely useless, because those users have no rapport with me. "professional" reviews are various degrees of terrible terrible, because gaming journalism is still in its infancy compared to, for example, film criticism (was there ever an English-speaking writer of Ebert's caliber among game journos?).

We are clearly not on the same page. Users and game journalists bring more to the table than just their opinions. You stated that you watch videos in order to make informed decisions on game purchases. Those videos must be coming from the publishers, journalists, or players. You are calling them 'completely useless' and 'terrible terrible' but you are still relying on the content they are providing. I don't think there is anything wrong with being critical of their opinions, but your hyperbole comes across as contradictory.

welp, I don't think raw gameplay and reviews can be compared in this context, so let's just put a lid on it.

That controller looks kinda uncomfortable.  Who thought completely unnecessary sharp angles were a good idea on something designed to be held and manipulated in your hand?  :blink:

It's probably a mimic, look out!

Don't worry.  If I hear that skittering sound that you always hear when there's a mimic nearby I immediately start smashing everything in sight with my wrench.  Who's getting the jump on who?  :brows:

Same. Best way to actually see if gameplay is worth putting any time into without being subjected to people selling their goofy, obnoxious personalities.

Seaman Jones: Conn, sonar! Crazy Ivan!
 
Capt. Bart Mancuso: All stop! Quick quiet!
 
Beaumont: What's goin' on, Jonesy?
 
Seaman Jones: Russian captains sometimes turn suddenly to see if anyone's behind them. We call it "Crazy Ivan." The only thing you can do is go dead. Shut everything down and make like a hole in the water.
 
Beaumont: So what's the catch?
 
Seaman Jones: The catch is, a boat this big doesn't exactly stop on a dime... and if we're too close, we'll drift right into the back of him.
