Negative reviews impact more than how a game sells. It impacts how other people perceive a product or service. As a social norm, consumers believe in reviews made by real people as a good judgment of a product or service which then influence buying habits. These reviews can also create a bandwagon effect, which can hurt a product or service’s credibility. The more people voice something is bad, the more people believe it is true.

Show Notes

We discuss how the bandwagon effect influences our buying decisions on purchasing a game. We evaluate the impact Metacritic has on games and how Stadia's current reputation may be affected by the bandwagon effect and its negative reviews from YouTubers. Ultimately, we determine how we choose to evaluate reviews. It may not shock you.
