I don't know....maybe wait for the actual reviews? Yeah, that does mean we have to wait a bit more when a new game comes out.
Admittedly, there have been/are games that I would pre-order, or get on day 1 or 2, but they'd be from some specific developers in specific genres and in specific series.
Bethesda, Bioware, Blizzard for example. Squaresoft in the past, but not today.
I wouldn't probably worry about reading console-specific reviews for games that got an earlier release on the PC or another platform and were well regarded. (Divinity, Wasteland 2, Day of the Tentacle, that sort of thing.)
I also tend to trust print or "traditional professional game website" reviews more than dudebro "pro" youtubers, I'd trust the opinions of some random gamer who only streams once a month or so, than bearded 20 year old who wants to be the next hyperactive PeePeeDie
