My assessment of any game starts with player made videos. I don't watch Developer teasers because they are almost always misleading. Player made videos provide a decent idea of the gameplay, and the creator sometimes offers a few valuable opinions. If the videos look good I seek opinions from friends who own the game. This is really helpful because discussions can reveal details that are missing from videos. I find that reviews can be misleading and are very limited. Someone else may rate features differently that I would, so a low rating may have little influence on me because don't care much about the content that the reviewer perceived as important. Steam reviews are a indication of the general appeal. A recent and overall Rating of "Overwhelmingly Positive" tends to influence me to spend money. When the sum of these reviews are 96%-97% positive it increases my confidence that the game is well made. I seldom read individual steam reviews because the negative ones are usually rants, entertaining, when I'm bored, but not very informative. Price is important and proportional to the amount of time I will spend researching. If the price is low I am more likely to buy it and decide for myself. Games that are very expensive need a demo, so I can try it first.
Not cool my dudes, seems like someone posted what I would consider a fake steam review under the name Privateer. I've heard reviews can't be removed, so that's sort of lame, but I promise the real Privateer is much cooler. I don't know if this is common or not, might be something for players to look into. I wouldn't have known this review was there unless someone pointed it out to me. I flagged this one on steam, I don't know if that does anything. I would certainly like to see the recent reviews be more positive though and the fake ones aren't helping. Edit: Adding more links so it is clear this is trolling and not a coincidence. https://i.gyazo.com/1895131576cbe26e4d0b5ff7ed4a6db9.png https://i.gyazo.com/790c52a7cdda22f568a1b7905e190126.png https://i.gyazo.com/92b5e1996d7c438d154934d2a29ccbaf.png idk if this is the right place to post this, admin feel free to move it around
