my friend who watched this with me thought he was serious witht hte whole hitler, so i locked him out of my room and told him to grow a brain

Poisoned Al:
I had a ZX Spectrum.

BURN THE COMMODORE OWNING HERETIC!

ZZAP pwns CRASH :P

i liked the lives system in Crash Bandcoot.

Also, remakes should be EXACTLY like the original.

Shaamaan:
I agree with Yahtzee's review of Bionic Commando. People go all "ooo, aaa" about it, but it's just a terrible game (when judged by todays standards) dressed in some 3D graphics in a 2D world. This is clearly nothing more than a game for the fans. Let them have fun for all I care, but PLEASE, stop praising it like it's better than the modern games of our times!

EDIT: I can't say anything about the second game, since I haven't played it.

So you just agree with whatever Yahtzee says and claim other gamers are wrong for liking this game? Weak dude just plain weak. I've played Bionic Commando and it was a terrific game and I had none of the issues that Yahtzee had with it. So your going to mock me for having a different opinion?

Like I said, serious or not, you just don't joke about that sort of thing. I know he wasn't serious because he even said right after that he was kidding. But come on, you just don't do that.

lol I call banhammer on Kane.

well, this was entertaining, and now I have a strange desire to watch American History X.

Must be the curve stomping & nazis.

lol the hitler comment made my day

Loved this weeks review still the same humor the hitler thing did it for me i bursted laughing xD.

Cool review, bro.

What? that comment made no sense.

Edit: this was meant to be for tony2077's comment to the person who challenged him to do a better review than Yahtzee. I just dont know how to reply to a post yet.

Oh and if you call Golden Axe the closest relative to Castle Crashers, you have no business talking about the game at all. Ever hear of Guardian Heroes?

Yadoso:
Finally, someone who agrees that old games suck. Why play Super Mario Bros when I can play COD 4 or GTA IV? Doesn't make sense.

Also, fuck every Zelda game ever made. Including OoT. Boring drivel, remade and remade.

What a motherfucking Yahtzee fanboy. Yahtzee, if you are really proud of having a fan following of this then I expected something much higher from you mate.

Uh, Yahtzee. While I agree with your general point, I have three words for you: Art of Theft.

Huh, so he really does just suck at games.

Anyway, what's with the people downplaying 2.5D? I mean come on, BCR is a 2D platformer WITH RAGDOLL! Makes it 100x more satisfying to throw someone or own them with a barrel. Still, 3D isn't automatically better than 2D and apparently "better graphics = WORSE GAME" to all these pretentious critics.

SlightlyEvil:

"Very much aware of the hypocrisy, thank you."

EDIT:

Oh yeah and he also fell in love with Braid. This guy doesn't know what he wants does he?

Old console games really don't stand the test of time, but some old PC games (as someone already mentioned, Fallout!) do a little better.

And speaking of PC games, Yahtzee, you need to get your hands on Sid Meier's remake of Colonization (don't know if it is out in Australia yet). You will REALLY have some fun tearing this one apart!

Fantastic ZP Episode!

Hitler was right and wrong about many things, it's obviously an "I need more hatemail so I can complain about it next week" kinda thing.

OMG NAHTZEE GODWINS LAW!

Admitting your hypocrisry doesn't make you less of a hypocrytic cock end.

lol, just makes ya more arrogant I guess. I wasn't implying that he isn't one, he actually just knows he is.

I guess it's a requirement for when your job is to hate every game your employer buys you.

lmao one of ur best in months

GTA IV is nothing compared to Super Mario Bros (and I have GTA IV. Boring game). Super Mario Bros is awesome and I hate almost every Mario game. Most 2D games are better then most of the 3D games released in the last 7 years.

YAHTZEE never played the NES. Wow i still have one in my room and play it occasionally. But he's right Mario Sunshine was way better than Mario 64

You are missing his point. He is trying to point out that we hold classic games up on a pedestal simply because they were something we played in the past. Rather then really taking an objective approach to them. Not all classic games are bad, just like how not all new games are good. A poor design choice shouldn't be overlooked just because the game happens to be "classic". It's also perfectly fine to enjoy a game regardless.

the ending was the best.

It seemed longer then most recent ones

keep that up yahtzee, before I bomb australia in protest

I had high hopes for today that it would be a good review, filled with the things that made most of Yahtzee's first revies great. Those hopes were beat up, tossed around the room, and shot with a cannon.

It seems like he is running out of ideas for his reviews, which seems impossible becouse there are more bad games coming out every week then there are good games coming out in a month. Why did he do retro games, when he often says that his favorite games are retro? I'm sure yahtzee could do an excelent review about the force unleashed, if only to play around with pictures about the force grip, or to gripe about how both of the endings killed the game.

If yahtzee was really bored, he could always smash up some random JRPG and it would be highly enjoyable. Maybe im just used to the quality of the old reviews(i watch my favorites every week, so no nostalga) and should take a break for a while.......

Having read the comments resulting from this video, I feel dumber.

Was everyone oblivious to his point about RELATIVITY? ROSE-TINTED glasses? He likes Twilight Princess and Mario Sunshine because they WERE THE FIRST 3D GAMES IN THOSE SERIES HE PLAYED.

He then goes on to declare "ALSO HITLER WAS RIGHT" because Hitler was the FIRST CONQUERING FACIST he knew presumably, therefore IT MUST BE RIGHT, are you understanding the hypocrisy of loving your past so tightly now? He's being deliberately hypocritical to make a point, and people are STILL jumping down his throat, even with his two-seconds-later disclaimer. The point is that YOU LOVE YOUR PAST and therefore like things you've liked before. So companies make games that cash in on this.

Hell, I still love FFVII, and I know deep down than graphically it's poor, the villian is bland, the main character's a mess and sorting him out is more effort than it's worth, and most of the support cast are one-shtick stereotypes tucked into their own nice backstory that's usually mutually exclusive to everyone else. Yet it's still MY FAVOURITE and if they remade it flawlessly, preserving everything I loved from the first with shiny new graphics and the same old materia system minus the glitches, I would pay full price for it, because my perspective is skewed and I know it and enjoy it.

Also there's a ton of things about 2D/3D playspaces and 2D/3D graphics. Castle Crashers has 2D graphics and a 3D playspace (up into background/down into foreground, left/right, and jumping up/down, 3 axis, 3D). This results in the 2-pixel miss-wiggle nonsense that should've stopped with Golden Axe. Bionic Commando has 3D graphics and 2D gameplay (left/right, grapple up/down). What's the point of the wasteful 3D on bland 2D gameplay that has barely been refined? Giving nostalgia a fresh coat of paint. That's it. There's no other benefit except maybe to appease people who detest anything that looks old, in which case they'll probably hate it once they start playing it anyway.

Yahtzee has never been wrong - you just have to be on the same level of insane, ultra-self-aware, reflexive mentality as him to see why. Everything is wonderful and shiny, everything is made of shit. But I see very little wonderful and shiny in the forum posts above me, and now look what you've made me done. I've written a horrible, bitter little rant and now I'm one of you gibbering idiots claiming to understand what's going through Yahtzee's head. Fuck it. I have no clue, I just think he's got a point and here's my understanding of it. In his own words, if you don't like it, fuck off.

Cocks.

I agree that games only get better as time goes on and that we tend to think more fondly on our early gaming experiences regardless of their overall quality.

But coming from Yahtzee this is insanely hypocritical. Isn't he the one whining every week about how games get worse and worse and how everything new is shit and how great older games like Psychonauts and Prince of Persia are?

Great review Yahtzee but Hour Glass better than Ocarina of Time is bad english ...BAD YAHTZEE!

Also what is wrong with classic games, they were simple but the main thing is they were alot of fun. They also didn't have annoying little movies we couldn't skip and like you said in one of your earlier reviews, they had alot more imagination back then like a French Chief riding a prey mantis with a shot-gun that fires raptors!

I like how you use the face paint from Heath Ledgers Joker to describe dark things!

I laughed. Much better than the last video.

Castle Crashers was awesome, but I had all of the aforementioned problems.

Wow, I knew that yahtzee alwasy had fanboys but I didn't knew he had this many. This guy proves it when he says "Yahtzee has never been wrong". Sure you could alwasy agree with the guy but you can't just say the he's right and he's the "truth". Even I'm not this upset with this issue.

-_- Yes fanboys, Yahtzee = God.

yeah yahtzee may be funny but it seems like he just hates a lot of game for next to no reason

ps. you can come back and play mario, you really can't with gta4

Pretty good, but it doesn't come close to the nail shavings of the console run-down and the ilk.
