....I didn`t find that very interesting at all. It was like he was trying to sound like Yahtzee while trying to insult him and failing. I just didn`t find it very funny, which is why I like Yahtzee - not for his opinion on games(excluding Psychonauts). I don`t even play more than half the games he critiques, so it doesn`t bother me.

This guy just sucked. ;d No questions asked.

"And the reason his view is so warped is because he believes hes an "uber gamer" and "pwns" noobs with his "leet" macro skills etc. You`re not supposed to agree with his views. He`s the typical a-hole loud mouth you meet while playing online."

Ohhh....
I think they kind of pulled the wool on us all. It`s making fun of the people who whine about Yahtzee.

The people who vote this anything above a 2 are just mad because Yahtzee doesn`t like their favorite game.
Also, how is this any kind of "yahtzee gets his own medicine" over "some stupid emo kind ripping off yahtzee trying to be funny, putting on a fake accent and generally being unfunny"?(I can tell he`s emo by the "ironic" interbutt slang and the drating headband)

I don`t play video games enough to give a poo and a half about what games yahtzee likes or doesn`t. That`s not my life.
And I believe that anybody who cares that much about somebody`s opinion as to bitch and moan because it`s different than your`s, I suggest you email Yahtzee infuriatively and then return smugly to your console.

this guy contradicted himself: "...the actual game play, the part where you control stuff, and interact with other stuff and your brain generates fun..." and then he rags on portal for it`s length, and doesn`t think that it`s good because it gives a "challenge to explore new gameplay mechanics." this guy just hates games. and i dun liek him >:O

I kind of disagree on the "If I played as much as them I could play like them" part. Eventually you will be able to it just requires more time and more work for some people o:

Utter bull-sh*t. What would Shadow of the Colossus be without its compelling story-line and artistic style? Just random bosses with no explanation. A good story urges you to play through the game so you can find out what happens next. I can see where he`s coming from, but suggesting that game developers stop making games with plots and reverting to mindless shooters/platformers would wreck the game industry. Half-life 2 is a good example of a game where story and gameplay go hand in hand, removing the story (and probably the realistic physics) from the game would make it the same as any other shooter.

So this guy is good because... he blatantly repeats Yathzees style. Oh, he steals his animations and name, and format and other stuff.

Pretty bad.

wow that was really quite terrible, even if that isnt his real accent why would you want to subject someone to such an irritating noise?

That was pretty good, but I did smell a little self-gloat in that. A sort of "You can`t beat me at video games so cry and feel bad in self-pity!" and "You won`t become an astronaut, but I can!"
Other than that, it was hilarious.

Argh! If you live in England, you`ll also want to glue your ears shut after hearing that accent. It was terrible! Why bother? This guys a C()nt and should be raped. Seriously. It wasn`t funny, his views are retarded and ignorant and he`s extremely unlikeable. Yhatzee is the nuts, he`s actually funny and his accent is nice to listen to. I bet he could talk faster too.

I`m totally with Nahtzee - except for the part that backstories aren`t important. And "Andrewgaynor": u should really have put the "please read this" part of your first post at the beginning of your, very informative btw, ramble. Would have made more sense... Just sayin...

"Well, I turned it off when he said Portal wasn`t good and that GTA4 was."

He didn`t. He dissed Portal for being all of three hours and dissed Yahtzee for comparing GTAIV to The Godfather.

... videogames NEED stories. At least to some degree. Some games more than others. It`s what makes them immersive and awesome.

Depends on your style, though, and of course everyone clambers for what they like best. See above.

Andrewgaynor- I wasn`t offended in the fact that I was truly angry or upset. It was more a question and a statement about how I personally feel about games.

Also- Didn`t know that this was a spoof lol

Meh, nowhere near as fast as Yahtzee.
He did have a point about how game direction has changed drastically throughout the years, though.

But he was talking `bout how some people don`t appreciate gameplay over storyline, and then he knocked on Portal.
Was that on purpose?
`Cause I`m pretty certain Portal had outstanding gameplay... even if it was considerably short.

Whatever.
I enjoy challenging games as well as the ones that seem more like interactive movies. ^-^

Well, I turned it off when he said Portal wasn`t good and that GTA4 was. I`m sorry, but when does presenting the exact same crap every other game in the series has already presented but putting a new number on the front qualify for a good game? GTA4 was the exact same stuff GTA3, Vice City, San Andreas, Liberty City, Libery City Stories, and GTA generic sequal all presented before. Name me a game that has a puzzle system involving teleportation, physics, and a cynical sarcastic robot? NONE. Not only did the guy fail at making fun of the good game reviewer Yahtzee, he failed at having good opinions. If he thinks certain people just aren`t gamers, maybe he should consider the fact that he`s just not a reviewer.

And I really dont understand the description. Almost none of this is against Yahtzee directly or even indirectly. It`s more against the people who don`t care about how a game plays and therefore cannot play games.

For every one of him there are 10 noobs, He`s a whiny azz 3l337 haxor (or thinks he is). Making a game difficult or immpossible to play isn`t hard, And it usually kills the game. How "fun" is a game that only 3l337 haxors can play well ? Get a life beyond gaming you pathetic ditz.

okay explanations for people...

Zero Punctuation is a weekly game review show presented by Yahtzee, an englishman currently living in Australia...

Zero Coordination is a recent spoof taken from the web series Pure Pwnage, presented by "nahtzee".

Its the same show BOOM HEADSHOT comes from.
The reason the accent is wierd is because its a canadian trying to impersonate an englishman.

And the reason his view is so warped is because he believes hes an "uber gamer" and "pwns" noobs with his "leet" macro skills etc. You`re not supposed to agree with his views. He`s the typical a-hole loud mouth you meet while playing online.

So please read this before saying/asking anythign else :)

Games today suck.
But really, you aren`t born with talent. You learn to be good. True there are some (many) retards who suck, but they are generally sucking at everything.

What is it with these descriptions?
His name is Nahtzee, not Yahtzee, and the clip is called "Zero Coordination", not Zero Punctuation. This is a parody of the Yahtzee/Zero Punctuation vids. Notice the bad accent?

Anyways, that was pretty funny, and true.

Plus, how does wanting a backstory make you a newb? I enjoy a game more if it has well developed storylines and characters. This isn`t to say that I dislike a game based solely on story and characterization but more that it adds to the experience. You can enjoy a game for the challenge it presents and still long for other aspects.
