Major game purchase influences?

10 years ago or even 5 years ago, I would have said reviews. Today, not so much.
Today, I buy games from developers I know and trust. I also buy games based on posts from other forum members about the game.
If I'm still in doubt, I'll try to see some screens/trailers at the company's website or I will tru to play a demo of the game - if there is one. That's how I learned about Eschalon, book I and other games. I have bought some games (not many) based on their box description alone; this includes games like Keepsake and Agon - The Lost Sword of Toledo are among these (very few) games.
I tend to not trust reviews anymore, unless there from this site; or from the the adventure community forums, or from small places like game gamebanshee.com
