can we admit
No, fuck you. Steam is filled with retards and reviews are treated like comment sections where shitty memes and garbage opinions are touted as some of the most worthwhile contributions to the page. The forums aren't much better. Now, I'll be charitable and say that there are some decent reviews, but they're a drop in the bucket when compared with the metric ton of shit that exists in the review section of every game as a whole.

if its a game that's getting popular in the mainstream, the main litmus test I use is that if there are still threads getting discussion a week or longer after its been released because 90+% of the shills on either side will have left
Usually that means a game is good enough to actually play and you can form your own opinion after doing so.
again fag, steam is no better than metacritic
stop relying on shit review sites, there will always be detailed reviews and shit reviews, and Steam is overflowing with shit all the time and the amount of shit you have to sift through is getting worse
Unfortunately GoG's review system is shit, 2k character limit isn't even 10 tweets, but Steam has no quality control on their reviews either.
The % positive is usually a better indicator, but not always, of whether a game is worth playing
don't use Steam though, its cancer and you contribute to an unethical, powerful and evil company every second you use it, even if you don't even buy shit from it.

What are you talking about?
People lie on the internet all the time, and shills are rampant. There's plenty of reasons to lie as an user: to bait, to shill, for laughs, or if you want to waste people's time and money (though for something as minor as a game, that's going to be seen less often)
there's a reason that the baxter webM makes the rounds so often on imageboards, people lie all the fucking time on here
the main distinction of a good post that likely isn't lying is the quality of it.

Not really anons are very frank and can be brutally critical of games, especially the ones they like. So I always know what bullshit and negatives to expect and from my personal tastes and past experiences I can weigh everything together and decided if it'll be worth my time. So I always have a good idea of what I'm heading for. I'm not saying every game I've played was amazing but I always know what to expect so I'm never disappointed. Knowledge is half the battle.

99.9 percent of video games are absolute garbage that aren't worth even pirating, but games do not generally suggest you run them 24/7 so they can spy on your activities and sell your data for profit, while steam does. It's the default option on installation, and steam remains open after a game has launched it even if the autostart has been disabled. When the game has exited, it must be manually closed. This is not unintentional behavior or a technical limitation.

i don't trust the word of anyone i don't know personally. be it user, eceleb, or some random on a forum somewhere.
for someone's review on a game or anything else to mean anything to you, you have to know what they do and don't like in games. use that knowledge, apply your own preferences. and if the list of things some random fuck likes matches up with the things you like (or is close enough), and both of your dislikes are about the same, and the rando says he likes a certain vidya game. you may actually like that vidya game.
at this point i usually look at gameplay and stills, and if it still looks good and assuming you can afford to buy it, pirate it to try it out. if you can't or don't want to pay, just pirate it anyway though, use your own discretion

that's how you get into video games (and most other material goods)

Luis Myers

Reviews from almost every source are bad. I have never ever trusted reviews and I have listened to word of mouth myself more often than I have glanced at some faggot's detailed description of the colors used to justify why a game thats buggy as fuck and has broken mechanics should even be looked at.

I trust Holla Forums more than not due to its constant ability to call games out for their shittiness. They helped people stay away from tortanic, showed how sjw tripwire is and probably saved more money for people than not. Kinda sad that i would read a random faggot's 3 sentence post about whats actually wrong than a detailed page of someone sucking a devs cock but thats how I see it. We arent paid and those who are ususally get sniffed out easily because companies are too jewish to actually buy out Holla Forums users. We actually would rather play good games than sell out.

Adam Anderson

Nigger look around, any time there's a thread that (Roughly other than the OP or some exceptions like splatoon threads where they're actually playing the game) you either get
- Very basic and safe supportive things said about a game that you could probably read somewhere else
- Very basic contrarianism to a game deemed unacceptable to Holla Forums culture or alternatively
- Points other people have posted with the syntax nearly the same

If you have to buy anything, buy online multiplayer games you know you will play with your friend. Don't buy shit brand new, always wait for the GOTY edition. Check out the Free To Play section as well as the Mods section/tags for some decent Source mods and such, just don't get addicted. If a game has a lot of additional content to download ( like PAYDAY 2 for example) be aware that if you don't have ALL of the content you will most likely be automatically kicked from servers when a map changes to something outside of base game. Do not spend more than $20 on a video game. Do not buy shit you don't need. Do not buy shit you think you might want to play. Do not buy shit simply because it's cheap.
I hope you and your friend have some fun with vidya coop, but for the love of god, get an IRC plug-in for Firefox or something, don't repeat the same mistake I've been doing for the past 11 years.
