This week, Zero Punctuation reviews The Sims 3.
The Sim never changes even with all the garbage they add on, even when that garbage is a pet. You treat everything the same way. Oh, and he's right about the last thing as well.
Everything he said was true. I have the game. Bought it for $24.99 at Microcenter via pre-order. Wait, add $5 there for the reservation.
Lol, you can say that about any game, he just described the genre, to me if serious doesn't sound too educated on video games.
In a sense, you are right. All games repeat in some way. FPS's..you shoot. Racing games..you drive, but the thing that makes the Sims the worst of them all is that.. When you play, you can come about your characters life, the exact same way, every time, every day. That's why they throw in things like robbers and stuff like that, to get your character all sad and make him poor again, so you can actually start trying again. Every other game, yes you shoot, yes you do some verb, but how you come about that verb is different every time, because the Sims doesn't take precision, its easy to keep an exact routine, while other games if you slightly throw off your aim or what not, that will change the scenario.
Lol thats brilliant XD
if he could compliment as comedy, that would be impressive.
The negativity is what makes the show in a way. It's like it's "thing". When i'm ultra hyped about a game that's gotten awsum reviews and want a true harsh non fanboyish truth about a game's qualities i check ol' Yahtzee for a reality check =) And the best part is, it always makes me laugh xD and it never puts me off any game =)
as always great review.
I've seen that guy in nearly every Zero Punctuation video. Seriously who is that guy and whats with the obsession?
Love his reviews. They speak in a humorous tone, but TRUTHFUL. Man, the years I wasted on The Sims doing what I do in real life. What the hell kind of game is that. Why did I like that?!
Hahaha!!! Hilarious as always! But yeah, I do agree... It's just like real life (except you have to sit through work in real life instead of zipping through it), but on a computer. Even though I know that, I still find the Sims fun. Not sure why..... =\
Makes my week every time. Definately the best game commentator around - no one and nothing is safe. :)
Haven't watched in ages - still funny. Though I agree, he needs to change the record I think, he's getting a bit too comfortable. It's still Charlie Brooker-Lite with clever animations.
