YMMV: Gaming In The Clinton Years
8.8: Go on YouTube and see how much bitching there's about the rating given to the game.
Even before that, back when the show was still on the air, viewers were incensed by his unfavorable review of Final Fantasy VII. There's even a video rebuttal where the host responds to the viewers' complaints!
His review of a Formula One has him complaining about the game being realistic without any crazy track gimmicks, and then suggesting a game where the player has to drive his pregnant wife to the hospital while obeying the speed limit.
"Donkey Kong Country is truly perfect. If you do not get this amazing new generation of Donkey Kong Country madness, you are stupid. Yes, I know it's insulting, but that's also the truth. If you're a true video game fan, you will not hesitate in the slightest bit to buy this piece of gaming history."
Usually, people take the two quotes and fill in their own blanks.
That, and a spiel he rattles off about how racing games should have both waterfalls to be driven through and police who stringently enforce traffic laws as you struggle to get your pregnant wife to the hospital.
"Front-loaded anvils". Really, there's at least one (and often more) from every review covered on Retsupurae. The extremely brief reviews of Contender and Buster Brothers, for instance, have "A nice fat K.O." and Wood's bizarre "pissing mannequin" aside, respectively. After the "nice fat K.O.", the most minor one is probably Wood expressing unfamiliarity with the Repeat Cut ("What is this, some funky new directing style?")
So Bad, It's Good: Despite its horrific quality, the absolute stupidity of George Wood's statements, along with his robotic acting and false enthusiasm, come across as hilarious.
They Just Didn't Care: The whole production reeks of it. Especially when things happen like the GoldenEye review explicitly not including anything about multiplayer because they only have one N64 controller and don't care about multiplayer.
