Major game purchase influences?

Almost exclusively reviews actually.
I mean I know myself which genre of games I will like, and then I look within that for many reviews to get an overall picture. Almost all of the other options have turned out to be less accurate for me. Forum comments tend to be hugely polar - either fanboys defending it or others slating it. Previews tend to be just too optimistic most of the time. My friends have different tastes to me in terms of genres mostly, adverts probably influence me in a subtle way - the sort of info based ones like blog and forum posts by developers etc the most. Demos only ever seem to put me off a game - I've only ever purchased one game I wasn't sure about by playing the demo, but I've cancelled many orders after trying demos.
