-Penny For Your Thoughts- Reviewer or Messiah: Reviews and their Influence

Reviewers. Soooooo many exist in this world that we live in. Hell, I'm convinced there are alien races that have reviewers too! Throughout history, we've had reviewers for almost any medium. Products, Food, Movies, Games, etc. The definition for a reviewer is "a person who writes critical appraisals of books, plays, movies, etc., for publication." Their job is to basically critic something, positively or negatively, to the public. To put it in layman's terms; A reviewer expresses his/her opinion on something they love or hate, in hopes that maybe they'd get other people to feel the same way. Now reviews have been a huge helpful part to society and more often than not, they've helped us in praising or avoiding things that deserved it. Their influence is what drives us to make our decision............however............I feel as though that's where the problem comes in. Which brings me to my question...

"Are we letting reviews influence us too much on what to support or dismiss?"

Throughout my time as a reviewer, I've been noticing some instances in the reviewing game. Mostly how the fans take reviews to heart. There are some who find it interesting, and there are those who outright hated. The focus on this review is geared towards the ones who IMMEDIATELY accept someone's review without even so much as giving the product in question a chance.

Take this for example (WARNING! MY LITTLE PONY THING! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED....but please don't ignore because it helps the point). A Youtuber by the name of "Digibro", who is considered to be the 'biggest influence in the Brony Analyst community', has been having doubts about the show. So much so as he says he's been feeling "jaded" that MLP wasn't the same ever since Lauren Faust's leave. He wanted more Slice of Life episodes, and when Season 4 wasn't giving him that, he started to feel less and less positive towards the season. And the worst part about it? His fans were immediately on board with his decision. I actually found a comment saying this, and I quote...

"I haven't seen this episode yet, but now that I saw this review, I think its safe to say I'm going to avoid it"

That quote there that I just placed...that's basically every quote that the type of people I'm talking about in this journal live by. And its not just for MLP. It also follows for other things! Another big example is Music. :iconcrucifythewolf: has told me countless times that there are people who REFUSE to listen to Black Metal, Death Metal, or any kind of metal because of its dark overtones. Now granted I felt the same way..until Tavo told me that Metal isn't always like that. There is Metal that doesn't focus on satanic views and stuff. And yet people in this world continue to see it like this. Why? Because of word of mouth.

And that's the problem here folks. Alot of people will praise or hate something and the listeners will immediately jump ship without even getting their feet wet to it. How can you really tell you're going to love this or hate this if you haven't experienced it for yourself? Remember, everyone's opinion is alot different than others. Not everyone hates 50 shades of gray. Not everyone loves Mass Effect. Not everyone hates Sonic Boom. Not everyone loves Five Nights at Freddy's. And I'm not saying that this means reviews are bad. I'm just saying that when you let it influence your decision, it would sound really foolish. Also I'm not saying that you should dismiss reviews entirely as well. Like I said, reviews are a helpful part to society. But in this case, you should look at reviews as something to think about. Whether you wish to make the same decision the reviewer made, that's fine...but don't make a habit of it.

So to my soldiers out there, I ask you....A Penny for your thoughts?
