Holy shit how can people like this guy's "reviews"?

I'm really not sure if he's serious or if he's supposed to be funny (because he's not).

He's a self admitted casual who doesnt even make it to the end of a game if he doesnt like it, and just proceeds to call the game shit.

It could be the most amazing game ever but if its starts slow, he'll quit before the game gets any good and say "0/!0 its shit".

And the majority of criticism he provides literally comes from his misunderstanding of the game he plays.

They arn't reviews though, he states in a bunch of episodes that it isn't a review show

The real question is, why would he even "review" the game if he hasn't even finished it?
>>
I have been wronged in this way by Ben Yahtzee.

He didn't like Monster Hunter because he only played the tutorial quests. It hurt my feelings. :(


But seriously, it's pretty stupid to not even finish a game but still feel like you have the capability to review it.
>>
>>322850665
But they are not reviews

Its just him making jokes about shit that happened to him and about the game, none of its serious or intended to be representative of anything.
>>
>>322851491
they aren't reviews.
ZP got its start as youtube shitposting, and the escapist wanted to make it a bit.
watch his actual youtube videos, nothing in ZP should be taken too seriously.

>>
>>322851491

Because Escapist wants at least 1 review per week, and loads of games can't be beaten in one week.

That, and they really don't care if he finishes it, because his reviews are mostly just nitpicking rants or tonguebaths.
>>
>>322850804

a reviewer

>>322851863
He's not a real reviewer you fucking moron. Anyone who actually watches these videos as reviews and not just silly entertainment is retarded.
>>
>>322851576
reviewers almost never give monster hunter games good reviews since it's the type of game that you have to play like 1000 hours to be considered not casual
>>
>>322851643
you are just bad at existence if you finish a game that you find shit, not just mediocre or unimpressive, but shit, twice

You take things too seriously.

>why get arse-pained over it?

Because /v/ is driven purely by butthurt, and nothing causes butthurt like someone of any authority telling others what they think of your favorite game.

Hell, the mailbag showdown was an entire episode devoted to reading specific butthurt messages from /v/.

>>
Actually I think he's fedorable
>>
He makes serious lengthy written reviews too. His Zero Punctuation short reviews are mostly for entertainment. He doesn't actually hate most of the games he plays I'm pretty sure. Just tries to shit on them as much as possible while being honest about their content and being humorous as well. Plus the fast pace of his reviews make them easier to enjoy.
I like them.
There are even games he genuinely likes and praises in his Zero Punctuation reviews, such as Psychonauts and Cave Story.
In his lengthier written reviews, he also seems to like Undertale.
He's a very picky man, but in truth he just enjoys making a show about shitting on video games as much as he can without being dishonest about their content. And that in itself is enjoyable.

So he has iredeemably bad taste

it'd only be bullshit if he pretended to play the whole game.
>>
>>322853319
Tumblr as a website isn't the problem, its the community. And the annoying parts of the community are avoidable. The site is mostly porn and random people reblogging shit they like anyways. Supporting Tumblr is hardly an issue and good content comes from there all the time. Hell, a lot of good Jap artists use it.

Pfffft. Not enough memes to be /v/

>It could be the most amazing game ever but if its starts slow, he'll quit before the game gets any good and say "0/!0 its shit".

Okay, fuck that. The beginning of a game is pretty damn important because it sets the tone for the rest of the game. Pacing is important in any medium, and it gets neglected more often than it should.

If there's one thing commendable about Yahtzee it's that he's honest, I can actually buy that nobody's paying him to shill games.

Didn't he say that bioshock infinite was his GOTY?
Why trust his opinion on anything?

Normies has been around since 2004 you dip shit go lurk mor on 4chan archives
>>
>>322854716
he said it was because it was the only game to make a lasting impact on him
>>
>>322850665
Extra Punctuation is where he actually writes seriously about games. Zero Punctuation is him throwing out stream-of-thought snark at whatever he played that week.
>>
>>322854024
Yahtzee mentioned Olimar has the key but he's confused to why he has the key.
>>
>>322854024
I think it was more 'why did they suddenly include this character' and 'why does he have the key'.

Yes. Because apparently those 8 hours are either so useless that they can be wasted or your life is so devoid of meaning that you can fill them doing something you hate for no gain
>>
>>322851643
Anything you had the urge to not only play to completion, but to do so twice, must be pretty fucking good. I don't even replay most games that I fucking loved the first time around.
>>
>>322850665
I don't agree with everything he says but he's what every reviewer should be, ie unashamedly biased and open about what his biases is. He reviews everything subjectively and doesn't hide it, and it's pretty much up to you if you agree with him.

Objective reviews are pretty much worthless, might as well read a game manual.
