I would add:

Most cliche'd: Dragon Age: Origins.

Most Delayed: Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

Of course I am risking redundancy and the captain obvious mantle.

pffft he didn't give the Everything proof shield award for the Most obstinate efusal to die award to Stephen Conroy.

because of him Yahtzee you might not even have the internet soon.

theApoc:

Dark Templar:

theApoc:
Borderlands while not perfect is a really great game that has brought something new to the console generation, fun/fast paced coop gameplay.

Except that consoles have been doing that since last gen. More so even.

Name one game on any console that is like Borderlands.

I didn't say there are last console games like Borderlands, I meant to say that there have been great games that had fun/fast paced gameplay for along time. Borderlands didn't invent fun co-op.

The only thing Borderlands brings to the table that is "new" is the kinda sorta sandbox world for 2 people to run around in.

"Racism instead of legs" makes me giggle every time just for the way his vice goes all woobly.

I think he might've been saying Bruuuuuuutal Legend too much.

For the love of God, turn that music down a couple of notches O_o

oh yeah, what is your top 5 since you mentioned Ascreed 2 was hovering there (i'll take it Prototype and Infamous joined the ranks as well)

You earned it, congratulations! :D

I knew Yahtzee would spread bullshit about Mario in the franchise that refuses to die award, but decided to give it to a politician because Mario is too obvious. Oh, what about Sonic or Lara Croft? Dickhead!

Even though a life long die hard Resident Evil fan i still have to agree with this video. Resident Evil 5, despite having great graphics, cool cinematics and fun gameplay, was just a big dispappointment. I think i would have liked it better if it had controls similar to dead space (evolution), just Chris fighting alone against the majini (horror) and a more developed backstory detailing Ozwells Spencer motives and whereabouts since Redident Evil 1. I wasent expecting it to be MGS4 but still. Oh well i understand that there are some new dlc coming in the form of new chapters. So i guess 2010 also means a clean slate for me and RE5. But great video overall, as always! :-)

Yahtzee's voice is a bit low in volume this time! Oh, my. Not to mention sounding little bit, "Nice".
Enjoyable video this week!

You forgot game of the decade!

I was actually kind of impressed by the blackened stump of a heart still. I've never taken much notice of the art in ZP but now I think about it, it strikes me as pretty clever.

I started the episode and there was no title music = WIN!! Like a bacon sandwich without bread.. in a bowl, obviously.

OOOO someone else noticed that... congrats. I thought my hearing was going off.

Liked not having the intro music this time. I usually forget to turn down the volume before I watch and end up having my ears fall out from between my headphones.

Great video.

I haven't got Batman: Arkham Asylum yet. I plan to when college stops making me poor. So far, I have been reduced to watching a friend play it over the winter break.

Want.To.Kill.Michael.Atkinson ><' Nice award for him though :D

So good=perfect in Yahtzee's eyes? No game is perfect(besides tetris). The dig at Michael Atkinson was great though.

-BloodRush-:
so what exactly happened with duke nukem forever? i remember watching Yahtzee's review and telling my brother it was out, only to be met with little to no evidence of that actually happening.

The conspiracy claims another victim.

Something tells me that when and if the golden egg is at last laid (Duke Nukem Forever) society will be so far in the pisser it'll be pulled until its as friendly and as as safe as the Jonas Bros.
My solution..
Old fashion hunts and book burning.
for the hunts we can start off with disney, EA and the like
for books we can start with the Twilight Series and the bible according to King James. (that one never really sits well with me)

I remember Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego being a fun game.
sigh, I miss the good olde days.

I don't get the Australian prime minister joke, but great year.

Oh god, the "happy new year" at the end sounded so sad

Iphones, cigarettes, pink shirts and cats are there to help identify who gets fed into the ovens when we start pro-actively depopulating the earth to save mankind.

The year 20XX?

Holy crap, isn't that when the Mega Man X series begins?

Head for the hills, the Mavericks are coming any day now! THANKS, YAHTZEE.

Oh my god...

The QUADRUPLE AMPUTEE KINDERGARTEN award for LEAST NECESSARY SANDBOX

I was trying to deside if i should buy army of 2 40th day or borderlands so could Yahtzee would tell me which one is worst. But Great end to the year very funny! P.S please could you metaphoricly beat the shit out of avatar the game.

ehehehe
so glad you stuck it to WET one last time... man what a pile of turd that game is. Although I can think of some other IP's that could qualify.

Poncy vs Continental Europe made me LOL.

I actually have bought Batman and still need to play it! So very excited.

2010 has a lot of promising games on the horizon though. And a dirge of shitty ones for Yahtzee to trash! Hooray!

It was the Attorney General I believe. What's not to get? If you've seen any other ZP episodes or gotten wind through gaming news the gist of it is he has banned violent games from Australia. Yahtzee also mentioned this in this episode for those who didn't know.

very well done indeed. awefully good dead-panery.

Awesome, couldn't agree more with the Michael Atkinson bit. Loud applauses and cheers for that alone. Well said Yahtzee.

One of the best ZP's I have seen. Though I do disagree on the decision of Batman. I preferred Assassin's Creed 2 over pretty much every single player experience this year. Modern Warfare 2 is the best multiplayer shooter this year, if you don't take into account the mound of bullshit bugs all the nerds discovered over the past weeks.

Seems Yahtzee has picked up a spider fascination / infection for the start of this year since there were EXTRA many spiders in this review!

I was certain he'd mention something Megaman related too since the Megaman universe takes place in the year of 20XX ;o

Soooo... if its the year 20XX... where's X? Damnit, I want my adult megamen and green-tittied Zeroes this instant!

Lol "razor blade filled vagina"

I loved the very final end scene..MW2 sniper.

Mick Atkinson is the Jack Thompson equivalent.
