Video game scores have started to bug me

Hey fellow gamers, I just wanted to say that this whole review score thing is getting on my nerves. I remember a time when I used to go to a gameshop and look at the cover of a game and buy it or the time when I used to buy game just because a freind thought it is awesome or the time when a trailer/concept was enough to warrant a purchase. That I beleived added variety to the stuff I used to play. Now when I have to buy a game I see Scores. Quite Frankly I havent played/purchased the titles that have score below 8.5 on gamespot/metacritic for like 8 years now. I started to not enjoy gaming as much as I did before a long time ago. I wonder if letting reviewers choose what i play and not play has anything to do with it......
P.s. In an unrelated news Obsidian was fired by Bathesda because they could not get 8.5 from metacritic for NewVegas.
