Games are expensive, so many people rely on reviews and word of mouth in order to find the next big thing, while others find a series/developer that they like and stick to it. Which of these apply to you?
Also, given the above, have you ever been met with buyers remorse? Have you ever got caught up in the hype of a game or purchased a game based on a review and instantly regretted it? If so what games have let you down?
