I know some people that listen to them like the word of God. I myself don't. If I want a review on a game, I simply just rent it from the store or order it from Gamefly. I feel that fanboyism has tainted the review process and reviews no longer hold credibility. And that's assuming they ever did in the first place. I can never see letting some person I don't even know, and doesn't know what I like/ don't like tell me what I should be playing. What's your take on it?
