1. Fallout 3 is going to be awesome, and everyone here is going to feel stupid when it wins GOTY.
2. Fallout 3 and Madworld were the best E3 games IMO.

Nobody seemed to notice my comment about the fact that Fallout 3 was denied a rating in Australia (the country Yahtzee lives in).

You mean like how Oblivion won GOTY?

Yea it will win it, cause of console kiddies.

Hence why RIP Fallout.

Consoles are better. They're less expensive and easier to plug in. Also, controllers provide a better expierience.

lol.

Both are easier to plug in, less expensive you say? That can be debated depending on the console.

Controllers are ass for everything but racing and fighting games mostly with some Action-adventure thrown in.

Oh you forgot that console games are dumbed down.

My keyboard vs controller issues are dependent on how I learned to play the game first. Oblivion, I learned to play on the keyboard. It took me a good 2 hours to get used to the actual PS3 controller. The Sonic games I learned on the Genesis controllers. If you were to sit me down in front of one of the old games on a computer, I'd probably have issues.

This day in age, pretty much every game has been dumbed down, be it PC or Console. About the only games that HAVEN'T been dumbed down are table top games, such as Monopoly and Go Fish, and PC/Console classics that no one will *ever ever ever* touch or remake, such as Daggerfall and Landstalker, respectively.

Quite frankly, that's what I've been telling people my whole life; that being wary of things is good. And my outlook on life isn't bleak, either.
Also, I loved your mention of Gears 2. I'm sure Xbox fanboys will have a cow. ;)

Yahtzee's E3 rant was pretty much bang on but that video of Russ Pits and co afterwards made me want to spew up hot molten lava onto my own crotch.

Oblivion was a great game and to be fair I think most of this hate is coming from die-hard Morrowind fans who wanted something more core for a sequel... and by all means I can understand that but that doesn't make Oblivion bad. Same for Fallout 3.

how about we wait for Fallout 3 to come out before we declare its Game of the Year...

oh and btw console video games are garbage there all the same thing crappy stories combined with boring FPS. I guess it's because i like challenging in depth complicated story-lines that make me think (cause i'm a big douche bag amirite?). Every good game thats been released for a console has been released for the PC with better graphics not to mention al the games i can just download and all the games you will never experience because you have clearly never bought a game for the PC.

Um no. Reason it got hate was cause it's a piss poor RPG and a prefect showing of how Beth can lie and cater to the console kiddie crowd. These things made Oblivion bad.

I dunno. I thought Oblivion was great. It's only as piss poor as you make it. Granted... I wouldn't be saying this about Oblivion except for Shivering Isle, but that's neither here nor there.

Also, keep in mind that Oblivion is in NO WAY a sequel to Morrowind, just as Morrowind is not a sequel to Daggerfall, which is not a sequel to Arena. They are separate from each other except for the Lore that has been carried through. However... I will say that Oblivion did a horrible, *horrible* job on maintaining the Lore.

Sorry, but Oblivion was a piss poor RPG. It was really just a action-adventure with some RPG stuff thrown in. Plus it was extremely dumbed down, hence part of what made it not longer a RPG.

Knew that they weren't sequels from the start when I first played Arena and then Daggerfall.

Well, that second part about sequels was meant more for Stabby Joe. I probably should've made that more clear.

I see this place is full of PC elitist fuckbags. No sense trying to argue with those people.

The only thing worst than a console fanboy is a PC fanboy.

Never understood the point a good game is a good game. Oblivion was a great game, light years ahead of Morrowind and Daggerfall IMO.

Sorry about this Yahtzee but since your Uncharted Drake's Fortune review you've been... To coin a phrase... Bollucks.

You don't use good arguments anymore, you just wordfully bitchslap any game that you dislike even the tiniest bit. Back in your older reviews you were far funnier. Now you just suck ass.

Hey dude, I'm all for consoles, it's just that some games are better for PC and some are better for console.

And again, I liked Oblivion. I liked it a lot, but I don't think it's "light years" ahead of Morrowind or Daggerfall in anything except graphics.

aswome vid as always but im greatly looking forword to alot of those games

pc games have mods however and mouse and keyboard are not so bad when you get used to them i know from personal experience

I just wished he talked about Left 4 Dead.

ok i think E3 is like a candy shop of all the things i love and this year they filled my most loved candy's with dick flavored pops that if u tried to eat u would get a hair ball but there is some hope i did like fallout 3 because u can blow peoples heads off with a Teddy bear and FF13 coming out for the 360 is cool because sony can suck a left.

E3 Big let down to me too, i miss the good old days of E3

For some-one who just entered the super-shiny land of "The First World Country" after living in "Under the Rock Africa" her whole life the fact that all the games spoken about at E3 were sequels for games either never released or too expensive for any normal human being to buy really kinda screws me over 8|.
The fact that the gaming companies are so arrogant they EXPECT they're so worshipped every gamer in the world has played every game ever released by them and they're basically using that fact as a way to sell NEW games kinda makes me worry .____.
thanks Yahtzee for pointing out the crap under the layer of glitter we were subjected to.
also, the clapclapoi made me laff 8U

Probably the best video of yours in a while actually, really loved that one.

Oh snap angry console kiddie.

Only thing Oblivion was light years ahead on was graphics.

:D Fallout 3 :D
im definitely getting that.
Will be awesome in my opinion

i love the resident evil script writers, every line is pure crap on a silver platter ^-^ the dialogue is so funny the games aren't even scary, although im not sure if they're supposed to be or not XD

Mirror's Edge indeed looks extremely awesome.

fall out 3 looks good and gears 2 will probibley be ok but all i agree with yatzee alll i care about next year is watchmen movie but i am looking forward to the new kotar mmo the bioware just anounced. Of course not relley anoced the said they were making a 2 space mmos and a reporter asked if 1 would be lotar and they said simpley yes. Im so exiceted i almost starded jercking.

Yahtzee - you are by far the best reviewer of video games I've yet to see. A good friend of mine (creator of the Rated Aargh!! comic strip over at chud.com) introduced me to your website and what can I say - I'm hooked, I look forward to Wednesdays even more now and I can't wait to see the new stuff every week. Plus I have yet to be disappointed.

Anyway I just watched The E3 Trailer Park and let me just say - I am counting the seconds until your Gears of War 2 review (you should call them and get and advanced release-or just get me the number and I'll call them). You seem to be a fan of gow, if I remember from mention in previous installments. GOW carries with it a special place for me and the mrs because its actually how we met some really amazing friends - this year alone my wife and I rented a house for a week and got together with 10 xbl friends (that we met by only playing gow online). The house was out in the Outer Banks of NC and we had a solid week of gaming and beach fun bliss. This was actually the second year we'd done this, last year we had 3 awesome guys come down from PA to a different house but it was just fantastic. Then this year we had 10 people including some who flew from as far away as Ohio (10-12 hours of travel).

Anyway it was truly something special and I share only because I'm sure you can appreciate something like this. Plus I thought I'd give a shout out to let you know that I think you're doing a bang up job - keep up the good work.

Later

I'm sorry, but I'm not even kidding when I say I would pay $100 US for a game about a French chef riding a mantis wielding Velociraptor-gun.

That's exactly what I was saying about REZ 5. Capcom: "See, we are not racist, why we just put in a half naked mulatto women as a side kick to prove it." But that's not the best part, the best part is that you STILL CANNOT MOVE AND SHOOT AT THE SAME TIME! Good thing zombies have a habit of slowing to a crawl once they get within 5 feet of you.

As for the new Prince of Persia well c'mon now I think this game might actually be quite good and the art direction is kinda cool. Since you only kinda sorta love/hated the previous PoP games I have a feeling you will feel the same with the new installment.

Star Wars: Force Unleashed is essentially Star Wars meets God of War. There, I said it first! BTW, since when did a light-saber not cut through anything like a hot knife through butter?

Fallout 3? Too much emphasis on cinematic gorey head explosions. I mean WTF are we all 13 year olds? I can just hear the shareholders now..."I know, make people's heads explode when you shoot them. Oh the kids will love it, the more gore the better. Why I can smell the suitcase of money I'll make off this game already."

Really all I wanna play is Viva Pinata 2 and LittleBigPlanet...OK and Gears Of War 2 (oh the shame!).

come on gears of war 2 and fallout 3 are gonna be good and i think he knows that

Yeah, E3 was kind of a flop this year... Funny, though, more people see to be talking more about Nintendo then anything else, yet here, Yahtzee only briefly mentions Nintendo then going on to games for the PS3 and XBox 360.

I think there was a bit too much reference to other games then there was of the actual game's features... Though I must admit, Final Fantasy sucks from what I've seen.

I don't need to be a cynic because i'm easily pleased...i don't see that as a bad thing, it works for me cos i rarely ever waste my money...so haha cynics, enjoy thinking everythings shit!
