While sometimes i disagree with Yahtzee's statements, that does not stop me from watching Zero Punctuation. The jokes, and the frames that follow are extremely enjoyable. And at the same time, my sadistic side watches a review of a game i hate just to see it get bashed into oblivion. The times when he gets something completely wrong
make me giggle a little bit, because they make me feel smart. It's a very enjoyable series, but you have to be in the right mood to watch it. What do i mean, well you'll see.
While i love ZP, i understand the massive hatedom it has acquired over the years. Crosshaw is a guy that is extremely picky towards games, and outright bashes the kind of stuff that does not appeal to him. You know what i'm talking about, JRP Gs
, cover based shooting, regenerating health, and of course, quick time events
. And he is extremely biased towards old favorites of his, like Thief, Half Life
, etc. Also, if you notice, he has an extreme bias towards Val VE
. He hates multiplayer, but at the same time, he mentions that he played Team Fortress 2
a lot. And some of the jokes are often extremely rude, and overused. The queen example is his running gag, the triple cunted hooker. It's bad enough to think about it, but he mentions it all the time. Also, there is always a joke about sex, or being gay in his videos, and it gets old fast. Here's a fun drinking game for you, take a shot everytime Yahtzee mentions anyting involving intercourse. Trust me, you'll get drunk fast.
But even though, i still enjoy his reviews, and if you want a laugh, and you don't mind some triple cunted hooker action, or the bashing of your favorite game, then Zero Punctuation is the Web series for you.
