I haven't had so much aniticipation for a game since Mass Effect 3! So... not that long ago. Look, much of video games is focused on THE NEW, or the most exciting thing out at the moment. New games, new hardware, new... whatever, you get the picture. Alex Osborn needs a direct IV of hype every three days or he. will. die.

No joke.

But I can't help but feel like all that excitement takes advantage of us and our wallets from time to time. How many $20 bills do I have to shell out before I'm able to properly assess what's worthy of my eager money? I can't be the only one who gets an itch to buy new games when I've got cash in my pocket. I need your help though....

How do you know a game is going to be good?
