When planning to buy a video game, do you rather that you have played it first or would you buy it on the reputation of a designer?

How is this a yes/no question?

And it depends. If it's an innovative game (i.e. first of a series or not part of a series) I'd rather have played it first. If it's part of a series I already like, I'd probably buy it without having played it.

I usually depend on "X-play". They haven't talked me into buying a bad game yet. In fact, when I went against their advice, I ended up with some pretty bad games.

I just rent games at blockbuster and play them for a week. If I still like it a week later then I buy the game.

When I bought my first Final Fantasy game, I bought it because of the great things I'd heard about the series. But if it's some random game that I want to play because I like the front cover, I like to have rented it first.

So, it depends...If it's highly acclaimed, I might try it out without renting it, but not often.

I like to play them first so I know if they're good or not.

Depends on me. I usually read up on a game at the very least before buying it.

I never rent first. I read up on it a little, but I know the type of games I like and I am rarely disappointed.

I don't plan to buy video games, I just see them in the shop: if they look good I read the blurb bit on the back. If I'm still interested I'll buy it. And yeah, I've ended up buying some naff games, but then.. it just makes me appreciate the better games when I buy those.

Plus this way I get to buy games which aren't just the major titles (Doom 3, HL 2 etc) which everyone raves about but are still pretty good.

Most of the games I buy are Nintendo and I subscribe to a Nintendo magazine so I know how god they are.

Good luck trying a gamecube game out before you buy if you live in Australia. They don't rent them here.

More often that not I would try and play it or at least watch clips and read up on it first but sometimes thats just not necessary.

I'd ask anyone who I knew already had it if it's worth buying and maybe check out a review of it online or in a magazine or something
