Ive been avoiding almost every feedback, suggestion, beta talk, story talk for battle chaser nightwar… I want to go in with the least amount of influence i can.
I found myself recently becoming cynical with games due to my time over at neogaf. Often skipping games due to a general dislike from others, only to finally pick it up and enjoy it. (Assassins creed unity for example, got blasted and even though im a huge AC fan, i skipped it for almost a year… When i DID play it, it turned out to be one of my favorite ac games (next to black flag)
Also Reading suggestion posts and pros and cons lists make me notice games flaws that i typically would never notice, which then lessens the experience for me.
So now i typically avoid all that, and never even read reviews anymore (no one should trust reviews anyway, stick to friends on forums for any suggestions though)
How about you guys? You like knowing everything about a game before trying it yourself? Or do you avoid all media until you can get your hands on it?
