    "I think the Internet Game Database would be great to find reviews on games you are interested in. Often times when searching for a game to play, you aren't sure what it's all about and want opinions before you go out and spend a ton of money. This provides reviews and even videos of the game so you can check it out yourself. They are given scores so you will be able to tell how good or bad a game actually is. "

    "OpenCritic could be useful for me when buying a video game. A problem that I had with OpticCritic was when I clicked on see reviews, there was a section about score summary. Underneath it were all these icons or badges, and none of those made sense to me. Maybe if I were an advent user I would, but as a new-comer, I was very clueless. I do like how it gives all kinds of stats for the video games though. I would keep using this site in the future overall."
