nvnews forum or other forums. I'd rather read user feedback most of the time.

For console games I usally go with IGN or GameSpot. For pc games I do the same but I am more inclined to take the word and views of forum members from the game section here or another forum.

I usually trust Gamespot the most, but now I usually head over to www.gamerankings.com and scout out a plethora of reviews on one title.

I agree with stncttr908 regarding GameRankings.com. You get a very good indicator of the quality of a game (if you wait a while for a good number of reviews to accumulate for the game you're interested in).

I also like The Adrenaline Vault's reviews.

Another good site that index's review sites is http://www.metacritic.com/

Besides games it also has music and movies listed.

I also vist http://www.actiontrip.com/ on a daily basis.

Good point...I wish Google Toolbar could take care of those too. Same thing (to a degree at Warp2Search) ...though they seem to have reduced how bad it was for a while when first going to the site.
