Which online game review sites do you trust?

Use to use ign.com, but found my reviews and theirs always differ, a lot.
Recently I've been hitting 1up on a regular basis, as I find their reviews seem to be right on, as ign is more biased.

A combination of Metacritic and opinions on the forum. If there is a demo that will usually determine whether I buy the game or not.

This one.
Cant trust any professionals since they dont see things clearly anymore but they still have an agenda.

Listening to people go back and forth here at Anandtech I usually get a feel for a game and if I may like it or not. Nobody is getting paid so they can be trusted to tell the truth, though sometimes they are too simple and a little incomplete in their reviews.

I got a free year's subscription for Games for Windows, which basically is 1up, and they remind me a lot of early PCGamer, when Vederman was still hardware creepy and they had real reviews. I think I'll be reading their stuff online from now on :)

Gamespot, I usually find their reviews not too off from everyone else's and in turn are not too off from the game itself.

I don't trust any of them so I read all of them. I like Gamespot's video reviews though. Whenever I try to read a Gamespot review my eyes sort of lose focus and I lose consciousness. My only complaint about them is that that Greg Kasavin has the charisma of a corpse.

I mostly use HERE and IGN. I go by IGN reader review more than IGNs staff.

pcgamer made me lol in my innermost being when their crysis optimization guide recommended the killer nic.
