I did say I would go to Video to see gameplay trailer and do more to find out about games , if I had a good screen , its a quick way to browse games that may be sheet but have good descriptions and maybe nice trailer .
look at the other side , I may like something low budget like Warbands , I didn't see gameplay until after I bought the game . I saw still photo captures or screen shots . Mount and Blade , then Mount and blade warband , bought from just the players words and some screens.
I know what I like and have watched great trailers and you tube and even streaming of live play , like Savage lands , I bought that from a stream , but I may just as well donated that cash , I dislike the game .
My only point about screens is they offer something when done right to show off very fast , the essence of a game . I have youtube and twitch to add to my regular gaming sites , I lack no news of games . I have TOO much information .
I also know not everyone else has made games almost a business . They also have a budget so can't buy something and not play it . I have three steps to pick a game .
1-players thoughts and description of game .
2 -type of gameplay
3 -less important -the video .
I have borderlands and played it like crazy -BUT I hate non realism . The game met 2 of the important points . I also bought it from steam and just screens of gameplay .
Now I also got farcry -Elderscrolls -and 30-40 more games .
Then add Seven on line games I play .
Consider a day 24 hours . So it can't work well , yet it somehow does . Despite paying subscription and not logging in for maybe a week . Or having premium time and not using game for more than an 1/2 hour.
So I know I am not USUAL person they would have as an example .( unless they look for nutty ) .
