Major game purchase influences?

I start focusing on a game with the early media and previews, and as several have said, there are developers I tend to follow. Forum comments then come into play, particularly bug warnings. Next, I like a demo for the simple reason that many games look & sound perfect but when I actually get my hands on the controls they play in a way that makes me think I won't enjoy them or get very far with them. (Avencast and Silverfall come to mind.)
Finally the last stage is looking at the reviews--most of the time I'm reading a review after I buy a game to see if the author agrees or disagrees with me, but if something's slipped under my radar, or is an older game, I might look at a review or two, especially from smaller sites that are more into a particular genre, like here maybe.
Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
