    personally i watch the videos, screen shots are nice, but only game play can show me what im in for.

    I try to avoid videos if possible (me 56ker), and go with screenies/reviews. But if I'm considering purchasing the game, I try and download a video/demo.

    thanks Sazar. I prefer the vidoe & reviews because then I dont have to put so much into it. Demos are usually 600mbs, or more, and reviews take 5 minutes to read, and you can download a movie in that time and watch it.

    I'll judge a game when I get to play it. So if its on PC, then I get the demo. If its on a console, I rent it first. Reviews also help make my decision.

    I'd have to say game demo AND review, because sometimes I'll hate a game until a reviewer opints out good things that make me look at a game in another way.

    Normally a demo, or something I've played at a friends house (which is technically a demo)

    All combined.

    Word of mouth from customers, reviews, screens, playtest, videos
