Why I Never Did a Zero Punctuation on Undertale – Extra Punctuation


This week in Extra Punctuation, Yahtzee explains that the reason why he never reviewed Undertale for Zero Punctuation was that he simply loved and appreciated it too much.

Extra Punctuation Transcript

I mentioned Undertale last time, which is nothing to be afraid of. As one of my favourite games of all time, it tends to pop up a lot. And Nick the editor pointed out that since I never did an official Zero Punctuation of the game, now that Extra Punctuation is in video format this might be a good time to renew my vows, as it were. Much as I hate to confirm the widespread and unfounded notion that I only use ZP to hate on games, it was partly because I love Undertale that I never ZPed it. Doing so just felt… what’s the word. Ungrateful? Like criticising your partner’s oral sex technique?
