Create a Game Review Subcategory in the Gaming Forum

I would like to see a Game Review in the Gaming Formu as a Subcategory.

 

I think it should be set up such that only Forum Moderators can start a topic asking for Game Reviews.

 

This would dramatically reduce chances of the same thread being started by many different people. 

 

A lot of new games come out every year and some of them are great, and some them not so great.  However, we often see reviews that simply glow before a game is released.  But who writes these reviews.

 

I would like to see a game review here on the Best Buy site that is filled in by gamers.

This is different that the reviews on Best Buys web site.  It is very very common in the Food and Hotel industry for a review to be written by the company who makes a product or offers the service.  I have no doubt it happens in the gaming industry.

 

I would make it separate from the BB web site becuase that is open to the same non objective abuse that other review web sites.  However, if this caught on, there would be no stopping the developers from doing the same in the forum.

 

This could also be counter productive  to Best Buy interestes as it could reduce sales and or pre-sales.  

 

Personally I seldom buy a game that is brand new. I would much rather wait a few weejs to see what REAL gamers think.

I really like this idea. I could see it making the Gaming forum more organized. Does anyone else want to see this put into place? Remember to vote for an idea if you like it.

I too like this idea. As a personw ho writes a lot of computer reviews, a review board in general could even work if a gaming review board isn't made instead. As I pointed out in that one topic about Destiny I mentioned that Watchdogs was a disappointment compared to the hype there was made for it. Witha  review board gamers who are uncertain can wait and see others post reviews.
