    Hideki Kamiya :Western Gamers Care Too Much About Sales and Reviews

    Legendary Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Bayonetta developer Hideki Kamiya is well known for not having any qualms about sharing his opinion on almost any topic, especially on twitter. Today he did just that while talking about Western (foreign) gamers and their habit to care a bit too much about sales and review scores.
    At the cost of being self-defeatist (since I do write reviews, and commenting on sales is part of my job), I have to admit that Kamiya is quite right. Besides applying the concept just to Western gamers (I do think it applies to everyone, regardless of where they live), in the end you’re the only true judge of which games are good or bad for you.
    Don’t ever let me or any of my esteemed colleagues convince you otherwise.
    I share my words about this time by time in here. Even some devs are irritated by that as it seems.

    We care... Because it helps us chose to buy or not to buy the game

    He is not saying it is not helpful. He just states reviews and sales DECIDE your choice, and thats just wrong.

    Well if it is a series we love and off course we are going to read the reviews and buy the game

    AKA GTA V being one off them, i would buy the game if the reviews are terrible. Because it is a new gta game

    Discussing sales bores me rigid. I steer clear of all those threads whenever possible.

    Reviews are important... but they should be honest. Like when jeff from gamespot now giantbomb gave a game a 5.4 out of 10 he got fired because they were bribed. What was the name of that game?

    I can't agree with this guy more.Usually most of the stuff that gets highly rated on sites the games themselves are overrated and bag full of money.

    That's the only example you could come up with?

    I check reviews when I buy a washing machine, a car, a blu-ray player, a tv, so why would games be any different? Over the life time of the console I will spend thousands on games!

    Never heard anyone buy a game based on sales. Maybe if your social circle does and you want to join in.
