If I'm interested in a game after the first few bits of info I try to shut off until review time as not to have seen half of it already. There's just information overload these days. I'm leaving the last of us until release day now.
I remember print magazines being your only insight into what was coming and the instant gratification of the media availability now has killed something off, but I suppose if you're not of the print generation you don't miss it.
I suppose it works both ways though as there's plenty of games I'd never try without having a look on youtube to see what the buzz was, or finding out about on game forums.

I bought every past gta title on day of release but the timing being what it is now is to close to next gen release for me to bother.

It makes the games more exciting when you play them like they say.
