This is an absolutely miserable attitude. Games have never been cheaper or easier to vet. The amount of gamers actually done any kind of harm from buying "buggy games" is vastly overestimated. Think about all the money you’ve wasted, in your entire life, buying games you ended up being unsatisfied with, and compare that to other things in your life that cost about the same amount, like a few pizzas, an Uber ride, or a pair of cheap shoes, and consider if you feel you need (or would even read) a firehose of raw, non-distributed user reviews for those things.
Publishers and developers are not trying to trick you out of your very few dollars. This adversarial, distrustful stance that gamers have toward game developers makes making games an absolute nightmare, a high-wire act with wild consequences, which also hurts gamers in the end.
