I still value a good review. (that does not contain spoilers). Before buying a game i generally read a few reviews from some of my favorite authors.
I still look at written and video reviews before I start a game. Very much still relevant.
I like both video and written reviews. I find that reading multiple opinions gives me a good idea of whether i may or may not enjoy a game.
I found that reading game reviews of titles I've never played gives me an idea whether a game may or may not be something I'd play.
