Who?

Hard, I know.

Of course you're just playing dumb. I might point out that you succeeded, so far as giving that impression goes.


No I actually had no idea who he was, but thanks for the google search, that I already did.

I don't appreciate the second half of your post though.

I remember loving him back in the early 2000's, when I loved anything British and remotely funny. His comics and site were very funny, and his games were mostly brilliant.

His reviews, however remind me of Dennis Miller. Rattle off ten jokes in the hope that one hits.

I enjoy the hell out of yahtzees reviews, they're f****** useless for help deciding if I want a game, but they're great fun otherwise.

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.


Yeah, I feel the same way about his reviews, they used to be funny but now I just expect him to pan the game in every nitpicky way possible even if it's a good game.

Yahtzee isn't a reviewer, he's a comedian. Whether his comedy is effective or not is entirely up to the viewer, but taking what he says in his reviews seriously is pretty foolish.

This.

Also, Yahtzee refers to himself as a CRITIC not REVIEWER. There is a difference.

Pretty much this. You don't watch his reviess for information on whether the games good or not. On that note though, when he actually says its a great game in the review, you can be fairly sure it's worth buying.
