I really just don't find this guy all that funny. All his videos seem to be the same thing.

His new theme song is shit.

That is all.


I've been refurbished and reissued, prepackaged and precooked, decontaminated and deloused, but I still smell, sound, look and feel like shit.

New to the video game forums?

Yeah it was at least fun to see which song he would choose go with the game, but now the opening is just as boring as the rest of his 'review'. He should've quit while he was ahead long ago.

It's been like that for a few weeks. Unless there's a new new one. I haven't watched the latest one.

It was alright, but it was pretty predictable, I think we all know by now that he's going to rip it to shreads.

I dunno about Yahtzee anymore he's gotten kind of tiring saying basically the same thing over and over about games of the same genres. I think the people that still like him are afraid of being called fanboys so they try and join the band wagon. Sure everything yahtzee says is true but most of the things he points out usually wouldn't bother anyone used to gaming or in cases used to the genre. Maybe he's trying to point out that we as gamers shouldn't accept these industry standards but even on games that I hate like Soul Calibur I thought he was kind of over the top. Sure you can beat anyone by throwing them but you don't have to play the game that way and you can actually play the game normally too


Mushroomn. 6 years later it's kind of a dumbass name. Sorry about that

Yahtzee was semi-decent until he became popular.

It's weird.

When I pointed out the exact same flaws about BC: R as Yahtzee did, except a month earlier on Youtube, everybody jumped down my throat and said I was a no-skills motherfucker and felt the need to insult my sexuality and whatnot.

Now, looking at the comment page, it seems everybody is agreeing with him.

Wat.

My jaw dropped when he did Castle Crashers. But he did seem to like it except for a few bad points which he exaggerated (like usual).

It's cool that he reviewed Castle Crashers, but he barely even spent a lot of time talking about it. It would have been cooler to see him do an entire video about it, but I guess it's not possible if there isn't a lot to talk about.

While yes, he has pointed out some problems with CC that i am aware of (such as losing sight of your character in big fights and the vertical plane bit,) it's like he ran out of things to say for that game from that point on.

You know, everybody is entitled to an opinion. I can respect that, and everybody should. However, when you say something as blatantly wrong as "Mario Sunshine was better than Mario 64" you really don't have an excuse

I mean, I guess Twilight Princess is arguable. I think that the game is a sack of balls, but I guess that it had a different crowd to appeal to than OOT. A crowd that needs to be force-fed heart containers even though they're fighting one-hit-kill baddies all the time

Anyway

Easily my least favorite ZP, and it's not because I disagree with him. It's just that the review seemed like it was trying to be one-sided in a discussion where there really are no sides

Whereas newer games absolutely do have the potential to be greater than those of yesterday, he neglects to mention that they often, quite simply, aren't. It's not because they're older, it's just because they're better, in the same way that a sequel often does not live up to the first game

This review seemed riddled with ignorance, and that disappointed me. Maybe it's because he's a PC gamer by heart, and by all means, that's understandable. But really, there's the general consensus, those who disagree, and little acrimony between the two groups, with the occasional retarded fourteen year old thrown in

In short - it really wasn't that funny, and I disagree with what he said, but it's not going to stop be from watching his videos every week. Seriously. This guy's fucking hilarious

I really liked Mario Sunshine.

More so than I did Mario 64.

So sue me.

Nostalgia clouds your brain.

Take it from a person who played Mario 64 for the first time about 10 years after it was released.

Mario 64 is a pretty okay game.

Because I haven't seen any legitimate reasons why Mario 64 is better than Mario Galaxy.

I didn't say Mario Galaxy. I said Mario Sunshine, and I happen to like SMG a whole lot more than SM64. That kind of shits all over your nostalgia theory, doesn't it?

Seriously, how the fuck can you whine about you being entitled to your opinion while simultaneously bashing everybody who disagrees with you? I don't mean you personally, I mean anybody who bitches about my preferring OOT. It's just idiotic

Now I feel silly.

No comment on Sunshine; I've never played it.

I could go on and on again about all of Yahtzee's flaws which are as predominant as ever in this latest video, but I'd just be repeating myself. The guy will just say he hates whatever's on the table and everyone will go 'LOL YEH UR RITE XD', these aren't so much reviews as verbal vomit blended with illustrated shit.

He's not funny, he doesn't make any thought provoking points nor does he even play the games it seems.

Although I do not always think Yahtzee is correct I think he is fuuny and I respect him.
