I fully admit that I do this to a degree. This may shock you, but it turns out people LOVE finding out other people agree with their opinions and even get a kind of rush from it. The thing about video games is that if you play enough of them you can just look at gameplay without any narration and decide whether or not you might like it or not.

There are a lot of things you can compare or understand when your eyes are more trained. There are basic things like quality of animation or other things like responsiveness of controls which you can kind of figure out even if you don’t see someone pressing the buttons.

Yet, I still like reading articles about what other people think about games I already understand that I do or don’t want to play.
