Paul Battani from PlatformNation writes: Let's face it. Everyone at one time or another has taken the financial plunge and bought a bad game based purely on their own delusional expectations. I'm talking a game that is so bad and has had so many negative reviews, yet for some reason you still want to buy the stinking piece of garbage because surely, it can't be that bad. A game so bad that if your console could talk, it would berate you for buying it and refuse to play the game lest its circuits get tainted with the stink of the retched game. Luckily in this day, gamers have more options to guide their game buying decisions. Often times, games will feature demos, or at the very least game play videos. Bigger drawing titles will be prominently featured on channels such as G4TV and in the various gaming magazines. Websites will also play a big part in getting the news about games out to gamers with their reviews and news stories.
