I used to like Yahtzee, but I realized pretty quickly he's an awful reviewer. He lets his many, many biases overrun his reviews, to the point where it becomes nitpicking. This would be tolerable if he didn't slam nearly everything he reviews. I've only seen him say he liked a game only once or twice. Really, his "reviews" are more like rants from an unpleasable brat.

One thing I found funny was that he described the health system as "playing DnD with an Alzheimer patient"

Why is an old dice game reviewing another old game?

No seriously, who is Yahtzee and why is he reviewing a 20 year old game? Unless its not an actual review and is one of those "reviews" meant to be funny.

Edit: Oh, I've actually seen some of this guys videos before. I think it was his Super Paper Mario review. Yeah he's one of those funny reviewers. He's pretty enjoyable to watch, but considering I don't have much interest in Earthbound I think I'll pass on this.

The Wii U board is seriously just awful.

Because they're not reviews, they're cartoons.

Your problem is taking his "reviews" too seriously and not watching them for the highly critical humor they're made for.

Erm... That's the point behind the "Yahtzee" character. It's not really an accurate portrayal of his opinion towards the games he reviews in Zero Punctuation.

I never really thought of Yahtzee as a serious reviewer. It's more of just an entertainment type of thing. I enjoy his videos but all that negativity, even just for show, can get irritating at times.

indeed, I think he tries so hard to be funny, that kills the joke, for example, he thinks that mocking that the game is repetitive will be funny, but all the games are repetitive, specially JRPG, when you buy the game you know what are going to play, he tries so hard to be a Monty Python's copy cat that the joke is good only one or two times, than you prefer to watch something else
