I seriously would have watched the 5 minutes of silence.

It had me for a moment. I can totally see Yahtzee doing an episode where it's just five minutes of him sitting there saying nothing. I almost dragged the mouse forward to see if that was the case. :-)

Yahtzee.....has your voice given in or is the mic not seeing the best of days?

Like (apparently) many people here, I would totally have watched five minutes of silence, just because of how great a snobbish gag it would have been.

even on his week off he put out a video. thats some work ethics! gogo yahtzee

Srdjan Tanaskovic:
At first I thought it would only be a 5 minutes long video where nobody said anything

same here

He didn't think his "Pink dress, shit's getting real" quip was that funny?

This video really shows how many microphones Yahtzee goes through in a year.

No "NEAT UND TIDY!" from your Galaxy 2 review? That one was probably my favorite from this year. But now I have to go re-watch ever single video from this year, starting NOW!

What was the last clip from? Delightful Keats.

the FFXIV part is by far best one.

That's what killed the game for me is that it takes so long to be good.

Srdjan Tanaskovic:

I actually skipped ahead and saw that shit happened in the video. Then I was annoyed for having to go back to the beginning.

I was wracked with silent giggles for the first 30 sec of it. The rest was ok, but it did prompt to look up his earlier videos.

Deduce deduce.

Chew chew.

Am I the only one who LOVED the ending?

That was his April Fool's gag. It has it's own video.

I am forever in your debt for pointing this out to me.

*goes to archives*

Happy Holidays Yahtzee!
I look forward to your weekly tonsil exercises in the New Year :)

Edit: Can anyone tell me what episode is the Coocoo-birds reference from ...I can't seem to recall it O.o?

RandallJohn:
Am I the only one who LOVED the ending?

Certainly not. I was mildly amused by the clip show, but the finish almost had me in tears. That was great. Stonking great even.

I had thought for sure that the whole 5 minutes would have been spent in silence with imps ran around doing random stuff like putting in furniture and cleaning or something while people came and gave Yahtzee gifts and bowed before his awesomeness before a pants-on-head retard came in, started taking Yahtzee's presents and Yahtzee would beat the crap out of him at the end. oh, well.

I would like to say, "Yes, Yahtzee! We do appreciate you!" However, I would be remiss if I didn't take notice of the eight syringes of sarcasm you injected into the phrase. So I'll just come straight out and ask, "What would it take to show that you are in fact appreciated?"

See you after the holidays, Yahtzee.

Well thanks for a kickass 2010 Yahtzee!! Heres for a kickass 2011!!

...I'd have preferred the 5 minutes of silent contemplating.

Just for deliberately punishing us, I'm going to reverse-contemplate the contemplating I'd managed to contemplate. Also, thanks for a year of laughs.

I thought he was going to do nothing for five minutes too... until I saw the time was 4:31 or whatever. I don't remember all of them, but it was good for his week off.

New years resolution for yahtzee, play a pokemon game :)I have to ask, am I the only one who loves the idea of him reviewing a pokemon game? All the things he could say about pokemon in general, the huge amounts of time training, the amount of them now, etc. I think he could make a very good review out of it.

lordlillen:
still its better then last year.

What he said... :)

Dancing Imp! lol (also finally escapist for iPhone!)

I crossed my arms and sat patiently when he said to sit in silence. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

Good collab either way though

That was great, hope you are enjoying your holiday. I love you reading whatever it is your reading so slowly, thats always great to watch :D. It's kind of wierd that I can't understand you when you read that slow, lol.

Am I the only one who thinks Yahtzee sounded A LOT like Professor Snape (Alan Rickman) from Harry Potter at the very end. Hilarious!

PS: I dragged the mouse forward as well haha.

I actually had to replay the appreciation bit, as that got the loudest laugh from me. I guess I could just sit there in silence watching Yahtzee look at me awkwardly for turning up on his holiday week...

Makes me wonder what yahtzee does on his holiday; most people here will spend their time away from work playing games; but in his case it'd only mean more work.

Holy shit the first few comments actually WATCHED the video. It's a christmas miracle.

So I learned two things today,
One, Yahtzee fanboys, myself included, are glorious mental masochists who want to watch 5 minutes of silence, just so long as it comes from Yahtzee.

But the thing I wonder is, why do you need a break? I mean... you play video games for a living, and I bet I can guess what you do on break... It's like paying a crack addict to snort crack and then saying once a year, "they don't have to"; they're still going to do it, they just won't be paid for it.

I can't exactly remember, what was the last part?

It was really, really freaky.

Migratingchimp:
Well seeing as how it was so disjointed. I'm just going to comment on how much fun I had reading "Mogworld" over the weekend. Got it for Christmas and was pleasantly entranced by Jim, Meryl, and Thaddeus. Fun book thanks Yahtzee.

It sounds like your book ended halfway through, then. The first half was great, the second half was a load of arse-talk and rubbish... At least, that's how it went for me. But yeah, Meryl <3

Back to the vid:
Was it just me or was it poorly edited? Could just have been Opera ballsing up, I guess.

I totally agree actually about halfway it got kinda wierd still a fun read though.

Not really, he has to play games he probably doesn't always like and play them to the point of completion or at least as far as he can. He then has to write something funny about them (not easy even for the funniest people) then he has to make the video itself.
Although I'm sure this isn't super strenuous it can probably lead to some lame ass weeks.

Thank you for sharing 2010's best bits with us again Yahtzee, and Happy Holidays/Christmas/whatever you prefer.
