So many video games are released these days that it’s literally impossible to sample everything that’s on offer. There are many factors we take in to account when choosing our next purchase – developer reputation, genre, reviews and even sales figures, should the game have been out long enough.
Gaming isn’t what you’d call a cheap habit and, since we’re not all dripping with disposable income or even the time to sit down to play all day, most of us simply have to be choosy.
