>Undertale is the best game of the year

What did he mean by this?
>>
That Undertale is the best game of the year, you sub-human
>>
>>323298548

That he didn't play LISA The Painful RPG.I liked them both, even loved at times, but I wish he'd mention LISA.
>>
>>323298548
That the year was shit
>>
>>323298548
That Undertale was the best game he has played all year.
It's practically impossible for one person to play every game released in a year so there might be a better game out there.
All we know is that he played Undertale and he rates it in the same vein as Bioshock Infinite.
>>
>>323300624
Pretty sure he shortly mentioned playing it but not really feeling it.
>>
I'm just calling it now, this thread is going to become ridiculous with hate and I'm going to preface it by saying the arguments will be as thorough, convincing, and as helpful as yelling "TUMBLR" or "MEME" as loud as you can at your mother when she tells you to get a job because you haven't left the "game room" in a week.
>>
>>323298548
>What did he mean by this?
he meant that the year has been complete shit for games if a pseudo-narrative pixelshit game can win GOTY
>>
>>323300624
Came out last year

Googling games released in 2015, we have Tumblr game, Brown shooter, Slav RPG 3, Michael Bay The Game, Man-Ass V, Fallout 4, Asscred 2392, Dark Souls II (the real one), Jerma and Ster played this game, Disney makes a shooter, Minecraft: Super Autism Edition, a movie, COD 23423, Grimdark Superhero Adventures, Jurassic Park, Asscreed 2393, Game that should have Mila Jovovich but doesn't, The "Let's see if we can make this game without boobs" game, Anthony Burch, Memeviolence Fight Sim X, and the list goes on and on. Sequels, rehashes, more survival sims and brown-in-grey shooters.

Undertale wins by sheer lack of competition. Suck it down, monkeyfucks.

LISA is such a chore to play and never does a good job at telling you what you're supposed to do next. I'm not surprised someone who didn't even get past the tutorial section of Monster Hunter didn't like it.

If you can't define art you can't say games aren't art.
>>

art is, to me, whatever I consider a pinacle of human creative endeavour.

Haven't played undertale but I doubt I'd consider a work of art under "David'd Discount Definition of Art".

People seem to hate this game mainly due to their anti-SJW bias, wich is kind of sad. I never played it myself, mainly because the premise of playing around with video game tropes makes me sleepy.

How would you define it. If it takes creativity, and you're not working off a template someone else did, and it's GOOD, then it's art.

You probably can't even describe what would make an objectively decent game.

Most of that doesn't come into it until the last 10% of the game. Most of the game is charming characters and dodge em up gameplay.

I get both sides I think.
undertale was something I was hyped for, especially after the demo. I liked how creative it was on the technical side of things. Like how flowey read your save after you restarted.
I also really liked the bullet hell jrpg combat thing.
Personally I found the game to be quite funny but it's a style of humor not everyone likes.
I also fell for the FEELS shit at the end because I'm a lonely faggot or something. Generally I thought it was good for the price, anymore and I couldn't be able to recommend it.

That being said I can see how people done like it.
It doesn't come close to earthbound on an aesthetic level, or a gameplay one. Which is kinda bad when that was the main inspiration. The characters could get annoying fast for some people, especially Alphys, and like I said the humor isn't for everyone.
The FEELS or whatever the fuck that hooked alot of people won't really work on alot of people because they aren't Gaylord's like me that get emotional over sprites and text.
The fan base is also getting 5naF tier of cancer. It's fucking abhorrent. Which I assume is where the whole "Tumblrtale" or whatever comes from. That or some people cant actually handle one lesbian couple in a game handled in a not lewd way.
Or maybe I'm full of shit


I think everyone can agree the music is pretty cool.

And turn based combat, an other thing I don't really care for. I'm sure it is a loveley game though, it's just not for me. I liked Problem Sleuth back in the day, the share the same writer or something, right?
>>
Let's be honest, Yahtzee has never had really good taste in games. He's also not as knowledgable as he likes to think he is and has poor integrity for a critic.

>Bayonetta is a god of war rip off

I wouldn't be surprised if Undertale is his number one solely because he finished it unlike a lot of games.

>>323311307
I don't really think considering three games that are universally praised as fantastic his favourites is grounds for outstanding taste or critical insight.

What gets me most about Yahtzee is that in a lot of his reviews about shooters like Painkiller or Bullet Storm he goes on about how he's big on gameplay and action but in most of his reviews especially his most recent ones he spends almost all his time talking about story and rarely if ever discusses gameplay to a signifcant degree of depth. The way he praises Batman Arkham series' combat but seems dismissive of a lot of hack and slash games like DMC4 and didn't have anything significant to say about the problems it's reboot had in contrast to it -to me at least- gives me the impression he's a poor judge of gameplay.

I think it's a good game that was definitely competently made in all areas, so if people didn't like it on personal preference I don't mind, and if people want to say they hate the fanbase, and by extension the game because of it, that's fine as well, but the amount of contrarians who clearly want to hate the game because other people liked it too much just bug me.

Chances are if someone has shallow criticisms like "it's boring" or "it's shit" then they are just trying so hard to be contrarians.
