My online gaming started back in the days of its rising with Ultima Online, Everquest and Anarchy Online, which I still consider some of the best online games ever created, though I am always looking for "the next big thing" in online gaming.
Reviewers are people with their own, personal, subjective opinion, although the better ones ad objective content as well.
I love watching Angry Joe's, ChaosD1's and TotalBiscuits reviews for their entertaining, but also analytic and thought-provoking value. However, every and each person should rate a game based on their personal preference and experience with said game, no on someone else's. Reviews are simply subjective guidelines with bits of objective information.
