Anyone esle ever get fooled into buying a new game because of The Honeymoon phase. I am not just talking MMO's but any game. The Honeymoon phase of players gushing over a new game even though..its not that great. Then get bummed a month later when it is sitting on your shelf forever.
I find the worst are New MMO's, ive made it a rule to wait minimum 2 months before even considering buying. End game is usually the fail point for MMO's. Single player games can rely more on reviews I guess.
