lol this gonna stir some heart. That was great!

UNCyrus2732d ago

Hilarious, and informative at the same time... He actually doesn't trash Alan Wake as much as most of the other games he reviews.

D4RkNIKON2732d ago

Yeah he is such a satirical bastard and I love it! He rips apart every game he reviews and it has become expected.

toaster2731d ago

lol His best review was the Orange Box. The opening song said "It's all too beautiful" lol. Skip to the part where he reviews Portal. Classic.

SOAD2732d ago (Edited 2732d ago )

I've listened to so many of his reviews. He doesn't really seem to like any game other than Silent Hill 2 and some Zelda game.

Go listen to his Uncharted 2 review. He tears it apart, going so far as to criticize it for having good graphics. And he wasn't joking around.

Below: You only trust his opinion and CGRHD's? You must have like 3 games in your library then.

alphakennybody2732d ago (Edited 2732d ago )

lol calm down, I'm well aware of his way of reviewing games. I'm just saying certain people here can't taker jokes. I've followed all of his reviews and if ever I need someone's opinion about a game This guy and CGRHD are the only ones I trust.

Like I said calm down, Yes I trust their opinion more than any big name site. 3 games? you might wanna read my comment again, I clearly wrote "if I ever needed someones opinion..."

Rucury2732d ago (Edited 2732d ago )

He likes the Mario RPG series as well. (Watch Bowser's Inside Story review)

And Thief 2, I think.

Just saying.

SilverSlug2732d ago

He basically said stuff that made the game was just bad. That is like me playing COD4 and saying "It has shooting! Horrible!" I think the public knows if you don't like shooting games..... don't but a shooting game.

vickers5002731d ago

@SilverSlug

He liked pain killer, saint's row 2, Re4(I think), inFamous. Those are all shooters. I'm not saying his reviews are credible (they aren't), but he does like some shooters.

@Soad

No, soad, he doesn't criticize it for having good graphics. I don't know how you got that from the review, but he criticized it because in his opinion, that is all the game had going for it. He didn't criticize it just for having good graphics, he criticized it because he thought the good graphics were a crutch to hold the rest of the game up. Listen to him next time and don't cherry pick what you want to hear.

In fact, I'll post the link to the review so you can actually watch it again - http://www.escapistmagazine...

Or are his review not funny at all anymore?

I didn't even smile, let alone laught, at this one.

Rucury2732d ago

I peed myself.

Then again, I'm 15.

darren_poolies2732d ago

I partially agree, all of his reviews up until the review of The Orange Box, I peed myself laughing at but after that I now barley crack a smile. Still I find his reviews very entertaining.

And I'm 16.

CimmerianDrake2732d ago (Edited 2732d ago )

Is that he isn't afraid to rip a game to shreds, good or not. You could have thrown the $900 worth of merchandise that Microsoft handed out to everyone to give Halo 3 a good review to him, and he'd still rip it apart. That's why people love him. Doesn't necessarily matter if you agree with him or not, but what does matter is that he says what he wants without worrying about who bought positive press for their game.

**EDIT** Found his Halo 3 review.

yahtzee is a critic

not a reviewer his videos are for fun not to be taken seriously

i haven't even watched the video yet but i know hes going to trash it like no ones business like he does all games

Parapraxis2732d ago

...he doesn't trash ALL games ;)

SOAD2732d ago

There's only a handful of games that he doesn't trash.

Halochampian2732d ago

he does.

It's hilarious but he does. Loved GOW3 but he pretty much trashed that game.

But any game that he gives some praise is a pretty good game.

koh2732d ago

And just because he trashes them doesn't mean he's not speaking the truth. Don't base a decision on what to buy because of him, but always worth a listen.

SOAD2732d ago

He finds the slightest flaws in even the greatest games and magnifies them to make them seem worse than they are.

If he found one unlikeable sidequest in a massive RPG, he would go on about it as if it was a major part of the game.

koh2732d ago

Yeah but as long as you know that he blows things out of proportion you can listen to what he complains about and decide for yourself if it is a big deal or not to you. You can learn about all of AW's great qualities from ever other drooling review.

Pandamobile2732d ago

The only games I can recall Yahzee actually liking are Valve games (HL2, Portal, etc) and Psychonaughts.

Unicron2732d ago (Edited 2732d ago )

Which is funny, because I love Psychonauts, but it's gameplay is clunky as all hell. Did he point that out?

Strange_Evil2731d ago (Edited 2731d ago )

Actually he loves Saints Row 2 to death.. You can watch that video. After that he compares every open world game to SR2...

http://www.escapistmagazine...

He even likes GOW games, but thats probably it lol.

nickjkl2731d ago

look at those phantom disagrees

disagreeing with the truth

CimmerianDrake2732d ago

It's a funny review. He does give the game some credit too, so it's not all bad. lol.

Dr-ZOOM2732d ago

Video doesn't work FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

ZombieNinjaPanda2732d ago (Edited 2732d ago )

I love the videos this guy puts out. I'm not sure how he's able to come up with half of this sh*t, but it's hilarious.
