Please, mention a single solid videogame review site on the internet. Really, because so far i haven't found a single one. Maybe is just me not looking in the right place.
List bad things about every professional review site you can. Things like "I don't agree with them" doesn't count, because reviews are subjective. It's why you should read multiple reviews to get a good idea about if you like a game or not. Further, a good review isn't supposed to actually swing you one way or the other, it should give you an accurate idea of what the game is like while allowing the reviewer to voice his opinion of the game.

Your whole 'screw the system' attitude makes me laugh, because all it is is a thinly veiled excuse not to do research on anything. Why are you even on a gaming review site's message board if you think all review sites suck?

So, you can't name one? That's ok.

Careful of the slippery-slope there, we wouldn't want to see you get hurt.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Provided you like PC games of course.

If you insist on this, 1up. Their reviews can sometimes bit a bit too short, but I  just need the gist of the game and what it does right/wrong rather than have pages going on and on about intricacies I simply won't get unless I actually play the game, or worse yet fluff I won't even remember anyway.

Nevertheless, Ash is right. People are being too hard on sites over some smug notion that they're all worthless and aren't worth listening to. I bet most of you just see a few scores too high/too low for a game you're opinionated about and blindly write them all off.

Edit: Oh yeah! I like the Game|Life reviews too.

I just feel like I should mention that I hated Yahtzee before it was cool.  Then again, most of you regulars know that already. :P

Certainly i can agree there, 1up is close in being a somewhat coherent review site.

As for the rest, well, i just happen to never read reviews when i buy games, i usually just rent them if i'm not sure and that's it. I'm not saying that my criteria is flawless, i just happen to truly stick with it and that's it. Closed minded? Maybe, but hey,  at least it's the criteria i formed on my own after all these years of playing games.

Certainly not as good as you pulling the "troll" card.

Sweet Jesus this game is fucking hard on Professional mode. One hti from a normal enemy will kill you instantly, or put you in dying status with armor. God.

On the last level of my second play through on Veteran. Got infinite ammo on 3 weapons and now working on the PSG sniper rifle. I've also done the first 2 levels of Mercenaries. Grade A and S respectively.
