So does anybody else watch the video reviews of Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw? I think he's quite amusing, and also completely on-target with most of his opinions of games, at least the ones I've played. I base some of my rentals of games on his opnions, though mainly if it's a genre I don't really like or have much exprience with, and I disregard most of his stuff on fighting games and JRPGs since he doesn't like either.

But like him or not, he does make some valid points on gameplay and other aspects of games and is worth at least a watch, especially if you like games and want some amusement. Though I guess if you don't like cynicism, sarcasm, or innapropriate language you won't like most of his reviews.

Okay, unfortunately, I have no idea what you're talking about, but it sounds interesting! Where can you find video reviews of this "Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw person, and why is he giving reviews about games anyways...?

Guilty of being absent-minded. Here's the link to his Video Gallery on the Escapist: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation

I tune in every Wednesday to watch him rant and rave. He's a bit of an ass, but his reviews are normally accurate. He's the reason I got the orange box and Psychonauts. Good stuff. Also he does it because he gets paid for it, game reviewing is an actual career.

I really like his particular take on gaming, it's similar to my own. And I like how he presents the flaws of a game and generally stacks them next to what good the game does and says whether he thinks one outweighs the other, but overall doesn't declare his as the final word. He's said a few times he wants people to think for themselves, in ruder words, and I disagree with him on some things. Doesn't mean I get upset about it.

And being an ass doesn't really matter too much on the internet, I've seen worse people. It obviously works because he's been doing these reviews for years and still gets paid for it. He's also written a novel, but I'm not going to advertise for him. I dunno if I'll check it out or not when it comes out.
