Giantbomb is the only site I go to for videogames, it used to be IGN but Giantbomb is really the only site I've ever cared about which is kind of crazy to say.

They have been at the center of most of the big review score fiascoes that have happened since their site launched (Diablo 3/Sim City/The Last of Us) and they seem to have a strong bias towards Xbox over Playstation. They are the first site I think of whenever the subject of paid reviews comes up.
