I suspect he really did enjoy the game, but was unable to overcome his natural aversion to its genre and the things that naturally come with it.

That's a pity.
Xenocide - 2008-05-28
I felt the same. It's like he's so caught up in his snooty FPS-obsessed hipster image now, he's got to fight to maintain it. Hence the closing line.

A fashion trends system? Really? Real human manhours were spent programming that in?

Camonk - 2008-05-28
No, I suspect that's just the JRPGophile in you wanting your favorite internet crush to also like pretentious crappy RPGs. (Except for the various tactics games. Those are fun.)

FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown - 2008-05-28
Some people really don't like the genre FOR REAL, you know.

TinManic - 2008-05-29
+1 for Camonk nailing it right there.

Xenocide - 2008-05-29
I was obviously referring to his opinion of the game, not the entire genre. But don't let that stop you guys from waving your pom poms in the air in hopes of getting some groupie time with Yahtzee backstage.

Caminante Nocturno - 2008-05-29
What the fuck are you stupid shits going on about this time?

IrishWhiskey - 2008-10-08
Its a good game. And I normally can't stand JRPGs.

All the same, I was also annoyed by the grind and "need a strategy guide" aspects.

Squeamish - 2008-05-28
I suspect part of him WANTED to enjoy it, but that it just wasn't the game for him - and not because it was a JRPG, but because it was a genuinely awkward game.

Still +5 stars. And SPREADSHEETS ARE AWESOME

"I KNOW!"

Millard - 2008-05-28
People kept telling me this game was awesome and I know it got 9's in every review, but I still had to stop playing it after a few hours. Supremely awkward combat, and a main character even less likable then that mute kid from FFVIII.
TinManic - 2008-05-29
EVERYTHING get's 9's now. reviews are pretty much paid advertising now. the only thing you can do is rent the game before you buy it.

Hello there outrageous media myth.

http://www.metacritic.com/games/ds/

My god, the 90s, I am drowning in them.

Pillager - 2008-05-28
Not one of his best, but I still laughed.

Still way better than Sessler & Webb.


thebaronsdoctor - 2008-05-28
Five stars based solely on using a song by the Kinks as the opener.
Big Beef Burritos Supreme - 2008-05-28
Aw. He wuved the main character.
Sudan no1 - 2008-05-28
which implies he likes Cloud and Squall too, since they're basically the same character. Oh snap.

yeahjim - 2008-05-28
No they aren't. What the hell is the matter with you?

Adramelech - 2008-05-28
Dude, no.

PS Yahtzee, the reason for the abrupt change in personality is because the main character recovers his memory after the first act. I'd be pretty emo too if I couldn't remember anything prior to waking up dead.

Sudan no1 - 2008-05-28
I guess I haven't gotten far enough in TWEWY.

Squall and Cloud had some sort of amnesia too, if I remember correctly. Lol.

Adramelech - 2008-05-28
A billion stars for four and a half minutes of Yahtzee struggling to dismiss his enjoyment of a game he's supposed to hate.
FABIO2 - 2008-05-28
Reading these comments is like listening to a couple gay guys talk about how Colin Farrell is secretly queer but is too afraid to come out.
Caminante Nocturno - 2008-05-28
The thing is that in this simile, you are Scott Thompson.

FatFatuousNation - 2008-05-28
Whether or not he's Scott Thompson, he's right.

RandomFerret - 2008-06-01
Are you insulting Scott Thompson, or just saying he's really, really gay? Because I have no problem with the latter.

SharoKham - 2008-06-26
I thought it was more like the Christian rock fan overhearing some people at work talking about metal and trying to insinuate himself into the conversation to make some converts.

Hooker - 2008-05-28
Haven't watched it yet. Five stars for another round of conflicted love comments.
Monchiles Monchiles - 2008-05-28
I could easily hate a game for too much dialogue and cut scenes alone.
Dr Dim - 2008-05-29
Sounds like he hated it to me.

Also I find it funny that he's ragging on fashion victims while wearing a fedora.
RomancingTrain - 2008-06-03
Godamnit it's a fucking trilby! Not a gay-ass fedora!
