It's because he's not trying to look cool. He's actually doing the review. And he has an imagination. Fuck, he was even smart enough to almost completely make no reference to Yahtzee and when he did it was subtle enough not to anger fanboys.

He deserves applaud. Plus he was right. People who can't play should shut up.

I'm not really sure if he was attacking Yahtzee or not...He blatantly disagrees with and mocks him at times, and at others he simply...agrees with him in ways not special enough to merit special mention.

It was kind of funny, I guess.

It was hilarious if you think the very word penis is humorous.

His voice does my head in. It sounds like he's trying to shout everything.

'Cos he's a pissed off gamer with twitchy nerves. Like the Nintendo Nerd.

That Nintendo nerd pisses me off.

As does, in fact, every Californian idiot with a video camera and too much time on his hands who thinks that shouting "WHAT THE FUCK!?" for five minutes and posting it on YouTube makes him the new bloody messiah.

I can't decide whether it's Yahtzee being genuinely amazing, or all the people who've copied just plain sucking at aping his style, but none of the parodies/homages/whatever I've seen are pretty piss-poor anyway, so I guess it deserves some credit for not being utter bull. But still, his voice... WHAT THE FUCK!?

Although boring and although I disagree with parts of it, (such as, say, his apparent definition of skill, (wish he'd actually stated it), or that single player games aren't fun), it was well done.

I get the feeling he just slapped on a yellow background and clipart, then clipped off the punctuation to his own reviewing style, though.

I wouldn't say he was attacking Yahtzee due to the disclaimer at the back. But, that is just me.

Well that was one of the things too.

He did get pretty nasty about some of Yahtzee's opinions, though, so I really have to wonder.

Apart from rambling more than it ought to (it doesn't stick to one topic, and the alleged subject matterm the n00B factor, relates very little to his general complaint about plot over fun), I thought it was ok. No idea really why he chose to make a "parody" when he had no intention actually of parodying Yahtzee. Seems he had some real opinions about games and wanted to hash them out. Given that, he should have chosen his own format rather than "parodying" Yahtzee's. I say this because without an actual purpose to the parody (eg let's make fun of Yahtzee), it becomes plagiarism.

I couldn't watch it, the attempt at an English accent was too irritating. It just seemed to fall foul of that American urban myth that British people are either:

a)Royalty

or

b)from a Guy Richie film.

Seriously, Resistance: Fall of Man was bad enough for this kind of thing, When will you guys learn?

Just kidding (sort of)

This guy has a point, although he should just leave it to yahtzee and go crawl into a cupboard.
