Yahtzee released his top 5s of 2015:
2. Elite Dangerous
3. Witcher 3
1. The Order 1886
2. Alone in the Dark Illumination
1. Halo 5
2. Assassin's Creed Syndicate
3. Rise of the Tomb Raider
4. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
5. Batman: Arkham Knight
What do you guys think about these lists?
I don't get it, maybe I should actually go fucking play it.
It can't be that fucking good.
>shit on the order because its a 3 hour generic rollercoaster story game
>love undertale because its a 3 hour generic rollercoaster story game
Order 1886 the worst? Damn what a fucking retard
>the entire list
le cause controversy meemee hehe XD
fuck this stupid faggot, total biscuit or whoever has cancer should share it with him
its pretty good but how much you like it will hinge on how the humor meshes with yours. You should be able to tell within the 2 hour refund window if you're gonna like the game or nah.
Did you enjoy Earthbound or Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga?
If so, you won't like Undertale much. You won't like the humour, and the gameplay isn't anything to write home about.
Did you enjoy Homestar Runner or Homestuck?
If so, the humour and charm of the game will be right up your alley and will probably be enough to write off the bland gameplay.
Do you enjoy bullet hell games?
If so, this isn't a game you should look into. With the exception of one fight that's more surprising the first time you play it than anything, it's easy mode the whole game.
Kinda got a little tired of ZP, he makes some pretty good jokes, but every video is pretty samey, and it's kind of annoying for his to just hate on objectively decent games just because that's his schtick.
I mean Battlefront isn't the second coming of Christ, but 5th worst game of the year? Fuck off, it's a fun game, and it's oozing Star Wars while a Star Wars movie is in the goddamn cinemas.
In hindsight yes, but when it was released /v/ couldn't stop cumming their brains out. It was legitimately the most hyped game I've ever seen here.
>it's been almost a decade since Brawl Time
Fuck my fucking life.
ZP is getting boring and bland because he's being limited to what he can insult by his editors. His whole schtick about hating on games that are decent is his entire schtick - complaining about him doing that is like complaining that water's wet. You know exactly what you're getting when you watch it.
Battlefront is 3 piles of horseshit with a dogshit cherry on top - the fact that you're defending it invalidates all of your opinions henceforth.
Wait Just cause 3 wasn't his GOTY? And not even on the list? He loved the fuck out of 2, I was expecting 3 to be first or second this time. Also I didn't expect Witcher 3 to be on his list, that game requires way too much involvement than his casual ass can spare.
And looking at him playing DaS2 he's the very definition of casual: he has no fucking idea how its mechanics work, he has no earthly clue where things are located and he can't even read enemies' movesets and build strategy of his approach. And all of that shit after claiming he was a huge fan of the series, that he played them all so much he knows everything about them and all the rest of casual blabber.
>Fedora wearing pseudointellectual manchild likes undertale
I'm surprised by The Witcher 3 and The Order 1886.
The Witcher 3 is the fakest game I've played since TLOU, and The Order 1886 was exactly what I expected and precisely what it was advertised as.
Alone in the Dark was a cheap shot though.
I'm amazed that someone who literally shitposts for a living hasn't caught on to the fedora meme
Even the autists I know IRL who wore fedoras grew out of it at some point when they realized what it made them look like
Most people play something like Dark Souls, learn the mechanics, and then enjoy them based on that mastery. Yahtzee appears to not get any better and think the entire game is supposed to be somewhat challenging when literally anyone else can breeze through it on their second playthrough.
Gabe's at least competent at fighting games so if roles were reversed I imagine he would destroy everything.
>Letting spergs ruin something you love because you're not confident enough in yourself
It sounds anime as fuck, but you'd have to be shallow as fuck to be that desperate.
I think he was more annoyed with its intentions than the game itself, it's boring and doesn't hold its ground against older stuff in the genre, but it marketed itself entirely on controversy and controversy it got, that's what Yahtzee hates about it the most.
Actually he stopped wearing his fedora long ago because he realized it made him look like a twat and just kept it in ZP graphics because by that time it was an iconic image. Still you can take fedora off a man, but you can't take it out of him.
>2. Alone in the Dark Illumination
There was an Alone in the Dark game this year?
Undertale was a pretty good game, but I can't say it's GOTY.
Honestly, I didn't play much this year. My PC's kinda shit so I didn't play TW3, I don't own a PS4 so I didn't play Bloodborne, and Mario Maker is fun but certainly doesn't deserve GOTY.
Honestly, I found what I was doing most in 2015 was catching up on my backlog or playing updates for games that came out in 2014. (Kero Blaster, Shovel Knight, Etc.)
Also Bayonetta 2 after the announcement. That was fucking fun
though I'm not sure whether I should go for getting platinum on 2nd climax, actually playing the game on 3rd, or just playing Bayo 1.
There was also a mechanic where you could only harm enemies who were in the light. They may a well have called it Together in the Light. (Except no one is playing the game because it's shit)
He beat the game several times but has enough other games to play.
No need to be an autism overlord who needs to know a game in and out. You know, like people tend to, because that way they can delude themselves into having accomplished something.
>a 3 hour generic rollercoaster story game
Very safe best/worse/mediocre list. It's funny that he'd mention Jim Fucking Sterling, since I was getting some deja vu.
Yahtzee seems to have lost his fire, this seems much worse than last years.
1. it's popular
2. it has a fanbase
3. that fanbase is very vocal
4. it's an indie game
5. it was well received on /v/ post release
so, it's a shitty meme game tumblr sjw walking simulator for casuals and fags, like you.
I wonder what really differentiates games like Witcher 3, Fallout 4 and Halo 5 that makes them so different to him. They were all just quite bland to me.
It's one of the best written games in over a decade. Yahtzee values writing. And 2015 was pretty shitty year overall so it sure as fucking hell was GOTY-material.
I never liked Homestuck, yet I really liked Undertale.
And no, liking bullethell-games is not relevant.
>Website updates spoil every single new character and feature
>Gameplay blows chunks compared to melee (I'm a casual player and even I hated the absurd "floatiness" of the physics)
>Brawl didn't release until like 8 months after the US in Australia
I got the game for half price off eBay years later because I simply didn't give a fuck any more. Subsequently played it like twice, and never touched it again. Brawl is perhaps one of the most disappointing games in history and it's almost entirely Sakurai's fault for sabotaging it.
>Did you enjoy Earthbound or Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga?
>If so, you won't like Undertale much
What are you on about? I love both of those games and also like Undertale
I enjoy Homestar Runner but have next to no experience with Homestuck.
I also like bullet hell games and like Undertale.
Your logic is faulty, m8.
Nah, Witcher is sort of a Elric of Melnibone type setting, not a Ringworld ripoff like Halo.
The world Witcher was in one just one of many dimensions. Evil elves used to rule with an iron fist until their bloodlines degenerated and then somewhere some guy shouted FUCK YEAH HUMANITY and humans promptly flooded over the lands and overthrew the decaying elvish empire. Naturally, since this isn't a fantasy world of rainbows and unicorns, Humanity treated non-humans like shit and the elves live in forests saying WE USED TO BE KINGS N SHIT! (although in their case they're not lying, but they used elven magic to hide their lost cultural treasures to prevent them from being defiled by the dh'oine)
it never marketed ITSELF based on controversy
they released like 2 trailers, and the sjw media tried to twist and turn it into something that the game wasn't, and hyped it up way more than the devs ever did
It's a dumb shooter with a twist (that you're a mass murderer), and literally the same game, or at least idea as Postal was 20 years ago
Hatred did nothing wrong and shouldn't be on a worst game list
it shouldn't be on any list
it's a meh game, fun for like an hour
It was built to spark controversy, the darkness of it, the deliberate violence, the overly dramatic protagonist talking about how he just wants to murder everyone, this dev's strategy was to make a game that would make all sjws lose their shit and scream about it so loud that everyone on the net would hear it.
I really wish Yahtzee played more Japanese games. Games like Xenoblade Chronicles X, Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, and Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 deserve some love too. At least Bloodborne is there, but its about as non-Japanese as you can get with a Japanese game. Still, he has good taste. I just wish he'd play more.
I don't like Homestuck or Earthbound but I like bullet hell games and I liked Undertale.
Watching the reviews for a lot of the games I've actually played myself I mostly agree. A whole lot of titles really just are bbb (bland/boring/bad).
He nitpicks a whole lot, but it's the same things that annoys me when I play.
This isn't 1983... We have choices and options now. Not any half passable game is gonna satisfy us.
When he once in a while says a game is good, I actually believe him.
Only thing I'm tired of hearing him talk about is his shitty aussie internet connection. That has nothing to do with the games.
No, they aren't similar at all. I think. I tried getting into Homestuck and couldn't because it was so slow and silly and looked ugly. Which Undertale isn't. Or its at least different.
But why the hell are you even asking what it is instead of just figuring out what you think of games yourself? Gameplay footage exists. Demos exist. Hell, even torrents exist if you don't like paying money for things.
Literally the opposite of what >>322997971 said. No, fucking seriously.The comedy is similar to Mother and M&L, and is not similar to Homestuck. Toby Fox only did music for Homestuck, no writing. And if you like bullet hell games, this is for you. If you do the Genocide route, you'll get the challenge you're after.
I'd recommend playing through it 100% blind. Even the slightest things ruin it. Once you finish it blind, look up on how to do the Pacifist run. Once that's finished, look up on how to do the Genocide run.
I had a blast playing this game, but it's not for everybody. But you're going to fucking love the music, it's incredible.
Solid 9/10 game.
I will correct you though and say that liking bullet hell doesn't necessarily mean Undertale is for them. Especially since Undertale is so much easier than most bullet hells and since you can't actually shoot back for most of the game. Not quite the same thing.
But otherwise I agree with you.
Why would you care that some contrarian casual doesn't play enough japanese games? The fact that he's willing to dismiss games purely on where their from rather than the gameplay itself should tell you he has poor taste. Especially if anyone puts Bloodborne under Undertale and the Witcher 3.
It isn't anything like Homestuck you gullible faggot. >>322997971 shitheel here is just trying to generalize and depict the game in a negative light, and his entire post was dead wrong because the humor is a lot more like Earthbound and nothing like Homestuck.
Seriously, you should've realized he was full of shit when he compared Homestar Runner to Homestuck.
>The fact that he's willing to dismiss games purely on where their from rather than the gameplay itself should tell you he has poor taste
When has he ever done that?
>Especially if anyone puts Bloodborne under Undertale and the Witcher 3
Bloodborne is good but there's nothing that makes it vastly and obviously superior to Undertale and Witcher 3. Whichever is better is pretty subjective. Calm down bitch.
>le Homestuck meme xDD
Eat a bullet.
How about you form your own opinion instead of adhering to the cancerous shitposting contrarian hivemind that plagues this board?
Calling a game a "meme game" is also a meme.
People are allowed to make their own opinions. Being spoonfed constantly to blindly hate is the worst thing that anybody could ever take away from this site. We come here for fun. Don't perpetuate anything other than fun.
He did say what he thinks of demon's souls now: that he can't be arsed to get his PS3 out again to actually play it and that it's probably pointless anyway because Souls series wasn't popular until Dark.
>Bloodborne is good but there's nothing that makes it vastly and obviously superior to Undertale and Witcher 3. Whichever is better is pretty subjective
Except for the level design, combat design, amount of of builds and options available to gameplay, some of the best lore in the games period, and a god tier dlc which added more options to the gameplay.
I'm sorry you have shit taste anon but at least be subtle about it. Bloodborne is the closest thing to a pure game this year.
>Implying anyone outside of /v/ has actually played LISA
Its such a shame, i mean i liked Undertale and im glad it gained success (to a degree) but LISA had genuinely great writing (unlike undertale that relied on gimmicks) but it didnt garner nearly as much attention.
Its a shame.
I just read your comment and felt the need to call you a huge, massive, gigantic faggot. Go back to whatever shithole you inhabit regularly that isn't here please, your comment hurt my body and soul.
Witcher 3 was game of the year. Its pretty much objectively the case. It has the most, best, highly polished content. It provides a traditional gaming experience in a way that nothing this year rivaled.
No, indie games can't win game of the year because if you aren't providing a gaming experience that is focused on the quality of the gameplay (which neither Undertale or Soma does), the GAME isn't good, a part of it is, like the storytelling or the music or atmosphere.
Firstly go back to Reddit secondly no he wasn't "trolling", he sincerely enjoyed Elite Dangerous for the same reason people like those Euro Truck Simulators, the simulation of being in a spaceship in space.
this. yathzee is serious, but he also admits how the humor and meta elements of undertale got grating.
watch his let's drown outs.
no idea why he loves elite as much as he does.
I care considering he's a well know game critic, and this is a gaming forum.
ZP may be overly-critical and sometimes wrong, but he has successfully brought to light good games that i would have never found otherwise. I take everything he says with a grain of salt, but he's one of the last few critics i respect and enjoy listening too. Just my 2 cents
>Yahtzee only played up to LHS 3447 Sidewinder level
>Made review based on that tiny gameplay
>hurrdurr game is gud :DDD comfy delivery use imagination m8
>Yahtzee is literal casual forumdad trapped in hipster's body
Because he's a pending forumdad candidate.
He's b8ing you fucking retards, he only did that to generate more money for the escapist.
I know /v/ is fucking stupid but goddamn this takes it to new levels.
I'd think /v/ would be better off if all discussion of undertale was banned
Does he base this list by his own shitty opinions for his show or is it his actual genuine opinion?
I'm surprised Mario Maker isn't in the bland list given how much of a retard he was pretending to be in the review
He hated DaS when it came out as well, because he couldn't beat Taurus demon. Some time later his boyfriend finally convinced him to play further so after watching entire let's play of it where people explain to another retard what to do he gave it a try and found out he actually likes it.
