Metacritic, the Critic's Boogey Man

Yes, it happens, I know, but it is not Metacritic's fault.

As a rule, it always good to read as many reviews you can. Also, play the demo, see videos and such things. Metacritic is a nice tool, but it must not be the end all tool. Also, go see the players score. Usually the players are people more like you than the critics, so their scores tend to be different. It also forces sites to be not just a review site, but to do more things like interviews and discussions to generate traffic.

In the end, there is no perfect system to choose games, except for the hands-on system. But when in doubt, the Metacritic is in fact a good place to start. The more well informed you got the better chance of buying great games and avoid the sucking ones you have.

About ManWithNoNameone of us since 10:30 AM on 03.24.2011

Ok, let's see... Well, I am Brazilian, speak both portuguese and english(none of them properly ;) ), have 32 (Yes I am old, shut up) and work at a cable manufacturer. My first videogame system was an Atari 2600 when I was 8yo, then the Sega Master System at 11, a PC, then all the Playstation Family(PS1, 2 and 3 and the PSP).

Nowadays my primary gaming platform is the PS3 and my favorite game is Battlefield Bad Company 2, so if will wanna play or get some help with a trophie, my PSN ID is Man_w_no_name. Feel free to ask me to add you as a friend. My favorite game of all time is Final Fantasy VII and the worst I have ever saw is Danger Girl for PS1.

Aside gaming I love movies, books, anime and manga, Doctor Who and weirdness. So that is it. Hope to find good friends here at Destructoid.
