Why the Obsession with Reviews?

Mr. Nash looks at how gamers seem to put a lot more focus on reviews than any other sort of article discussing their hobby. (3DS, Industry, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

In simple terms they are used:

1. To help unsure people
2. for people to justify purchases
3. for (if it is exclusive) fanboys to gloat
4. To help make game of the year choices easier

Good points. Also for me even if I really want a title there's things I need to know before spending 60+tax on something I won't be able to return.

I don't always pay attention to a really great review or a really bad review but if every review talks about glitches or awful framer ate then I know my money's better spent elsewhere.

Inversion

Just to name a few.

I don't bother with reviews anymore. Between Giant Bomb Quick Looks + Total Biscuit WTF series I get all I need to know before buying a game without all the crap you get in a review.

Why the obsession with people that read reviews? What is so bad about it?

Seriously, I have less and less time to play video games, so when I buy a new game, I only want to play the best. I read some reviews, watch videos and choose the one that I am most likely to enjoy.

Everyone with a familly will understand what I am saying.I simply don't want to waste my time on bad games.
