Default Do you look at spoilers before you play new games?

Do you like looking up all the details of new games or do you like to go in without knowing anything? Or somewhere in the middle?

Have you looked at spoilers for BW2?

Before RS were released, I knew almost everything about them. It made for a very boring game! Since then I've tried not to look at spoilers at all. I completely avoided major spoilers for BW (besides the initial Pokemon leaks) and it was the best fun I've had playing a Pokemon game since GSC. I'm doing the same for BW2.

Normally before a new pokemon game comes out I try to find any pictures released. The game tailors dont always interest me. I have however taken interest in the BW2 tailors on the front page and they seem pretty interesting.

I find that spoilers do not interrupt or ruin my the enjoyment of any story or game. As a matter of fact, most often they increase my interest in it.

I cheated and watched the first five minutes of a B2W2 play through, but then forced myself to stop. XD I usually try not to spoil stuff for myself when it comes to video games (though I did spoil the beginning of Assassin's Creed: Revelations because I despised the cliffhanger at the end of Brotherhood and the end of the trailer), but I usually spoil stuff for myself when it comes to books. I tend to "GLIMPSE" the last page. XD On "accident".

I can't spoil ANYTHING about games I'm going to buy. I can't watch the opening for KH3D, or most things regarding B2W2. Media LOCKDOWN on all things Kingdom Hearts until July 31st. XD I'm one of those crazy people who'll punch you square in the teeth if you ruin something or me.

I don't mind spoilers as long as they're not too big. They don't usually ruin my game experience. So far, I've watched two or three B2/W2 gameplay footage, and I'll probably watch more later on.

I don't really mind Pokemon spoilers. There is not much to spoil just the ending...

I'm really bad with spoilers; I look them up for pretty much everything.
It doesn't really affect my Pokemon game play, though.
For me it's more like "K, I've gotta catch some Patrats in this area to raise because they're higher levels, and catch a Patrat there to be my HM slave".

Everybody has a HM filled pokemon, I believe I have a Snorlax with surf and some other HM moves.

My attitude to spoilers is that while I'm not going to be actively searching for anything, I acknowledge that I'm going to see stuff, so why make a big deal? The only exception is looking at the game's regional Pokedex to plan out a team so I don't have to go through what I did in Diamond: raising a Chatot to level forty-one before realizing it didn't evolve.

I'll admit, I can't help myself usually. I think the only game I avoided spoiling TOO much for myself was Sonic Generations, but in the end I still found out too much |D


But yet, Pokemon Games I do for the most part. Most games play the exact same, after all ^^' Plot is the only thing I don't spoil, really.

I do look at the spoilers, but it doesn't ruin that much for me.
Spoiler:
Hmm? Iris is the Champion? Alright, something to look forward to!
Don't look at the spoiler if you want a spoiler for the new B2/W2 games. Anyways, it's just who the Gym Leaders or some of the important things that won't spoil it for me. Just as long as it's not like half of the important stuff.

If it's a game that I can sit back and enjoy, yeah sure, I will just watch the trailer. I am often doing a walkthrough though so for Pokemon games, I kind of have to look at spoilers so I know what I am doing... I do the gameplay and I have one of my friends to do the commentary.
