HPP: Zero Punctuation has had a bigger influence on some developers than we realize and perhaps it’s something only a true fanboy would have recognised.
I like how blunt he can be. You'd think that'd alienate him from his crowd (just try to give Mario Odyssey a low score), but he manages to stand out.
I really enjoyed watching his older reviews, when I discovered him, and seeing him tearing up games I played and liked. I’d recommend others to try it, as it’s pretty entertaining to laugh at some games’ expense.
Actually, Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw never gives a score for games he reviews although it is not that difficult to guess if the game is worth getting.
developers and publishers shouldn't take him too seriously.
Thats the thing to remember about Zero Punc. He is only entertainment and not a real reviewer since no matter how good a game is it is his job to tear it a new one, in a funny way. Its like watching Beevis and Butthead give their thoughts on music videos. Its just entertainment not to be taken as serious criticism.
"real reviewer"..what's this a joke?
Lol! i get your point.
If you like the guy, check out Mogworld as well. He has a few more books, but that one is pure epic. He also reads it for Audible, so double the goodness.
I find him rather annoying tbh. I think Razorfist is far more funny and entertaining as far as that whole style of video goes.
Ah, the guy who said Demons Souls was garbage, who else should I take seriously? "I hate everything" channel?
Which is ironic because he's obsessed with Dark Souls and loves the series.
Iirc he addressed this is his Dark Souls video.
Been watching Yahtzee for about 9 years. Love Zero Punctuation.
