Will someone please tell Yahtzee that EVERYTHING has been done before. Get over it. If he's so concerned about originality he might want to try developing his stick beyond criticizing every game at all costs. I don't think he even likes videogames, and if he's so pissed off about repetition he must be pissed it's Thursday and that tomorrow will probably be Friday.

Hey, man, do you want to play 'BloodRayne'? It's like 'Tomb Raider', but with vampires! No? Howzabout 'Banjo Kazooie'? It's like 'Mario 64', but with furries! No?

Howzabout 'X-Com: UFO Defense'? It's like... Hmm.

He hates video games so much that he makes his own and spends an inordinate amount of time writing about others. I don't know how well his "stick" has developed since I've never been intimate with him. As for "everything has already been done", that sounds like the mantra of a unimaginative quitter, James Woods.

Though I may disagree, you did star in Videodrome and date Heather Graham, so there must be something to your reasoning.

"Schtick".

He's not angry that everything's been done already, he's angry that game developers aren't trying to be original anymore, and are just rehashing what sells.

I share his frustration that when an audience which has been fed crap for years gets crap with sprinkles on top instead, they laud it as amazing when it's still the same old crap.

Same observation stands with TV, Books, and Movies. Prove me wrong.

Xenocide
YEAH MAN IT'S LIKE HE'S JUST DOING THIS WHOLE THING FOR LAUGHS OR SOMETHING.

Hooker
Yay! Five stars for Yahtzee insulted my favourite game.

I think I'm going to pass on proving your subjective opinion of all modern media wrong, Robe.

robe
That's right, you can't.

Here's some objective truth: Cleaner sucks.

I got yer objective truth in my pants buddy!

The reason his "stick" is great is that almost every other reviewer out there will blow any game that doesn't completely suck. I think its good to have someone out there to call bullshit on that or at least make us think a little bit harder about what makes a good game.

Luckily all the one stars in the world from youtube to poetv doesn't stop him from being successful making gamers laugh at good games, shitty games and themselves.

I actually like the idea of an unoriginal Indiana Jones ripoff, it appeals to my warped sense of nostalgia quite nicely.
The thing that gets me about Yahtzee is that he exhudes this air of pretension; that any game that doesn't live up to his ridiculous expectations wasn't worth making and shouldn't be enjoyed by anyone.
Who give a crap anyway? If you decide you don't like a game, just return it to the store, you don't need Yahtzee's opinion governing your enjoyment of things.

Hooker
Yeah, agreed. Every Zero Punctuation is a very special Zero Punctuation.

James Woods
:( But -- I loved that game.

fatatty
You shouldn't watch Yahtzee to find out whether or not to buy a game. You should watch it to laugh at the pimples on the big boys and the down's syndrome in the shit games.

THIS GAME WAS SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD AND YAHTZEE SAYS ITS NOT AND NOW IM MAD

One day I'll get a video game console and then see what all this hate is really about!

A quote from Yahtzee:

On second thoughts, let's not call it being 'asexual'. That feels a wee bit pretentious. 'Celibate' will do. I can still see the appeal of emptying one's grubby little speed bag, I'm just lost on why it's so important that you catch the residue in another person's organic waste paper basket.
La Loco
He makes nerdy video games and novels comic books and can talk real fast and he can't find any pleasure in human intimacy.
RockBolt
Decent, but he really has a more than average hate-on for this franchise. I still think the platforming is too obvious and telegraphed, I don't know what he keeps confusing for background
voodoo_pork
Not his best review, but at least Escapist did away with the unbelievably unfunny promos for their other unfunny shit.
