    I'm guessing he means Yahtzee as well because of the strange fact that nobody (the people I have spoken to about that site) realize that the thing their watching is a series of videos called Zero Punctuation, for some reason assuming only Yahtzee is on that site.

    Yahtzee is a good reviewer, he's fucking leagues beyond Doug Walker and if you're accusing him of being loud and "yelling a lot" I'm pretty confident that you've NEVER watched his reviews or read anything he's written. Yahtzee speaks quickly but has never been loud or obnoxious, not like you're suggesting, and certainly not like Doug is.

    Ah Yahtzee I remember him. I found his reviews quite amusing. Especially Dragon Age 2. Most of the time I can't understand what he's saying because he talks so much.
    Oh boy here I come!

    Quoted the wrong thing, and misunderstood your question, thinking you were asking what the guy who was calling Yahtzee the escapist meant. Meh, does not matter, I have watched all of Yahtzee's stuff. Nostalgia is good for a laugh once in a while but I don't really pay attention to what he says. Yahtzee gives good ideas in a funny yet understandable/realistic manor , even if I disagree somewhat in some of the games he dislikes. He is one of very few sources I will look into when thinking about buying a game. (Normally I find "lets play's" to give a better idea on if its crap or not.)

    I quite enjoy his reviews I've only watched a few but I do find them amusing, however those small breaks where you actually see him and he's like trying to do something funny but acts really horrible are just ridiculous, I feel sorta awkward everytime I see those small sketches/whatever.

    Dear gods that voice, its like he's stabbing my ear drums.

    Otherwise he seems far more detailed overall in the reviewing part of a review, not all that funny when he tries to be, but he shows you in detail the points hes making. Awesome, shame that voice made me ditch before I went to far. Boring I can handle, a review is not really made to be funny, its made to tell you something. But that voice....ow my ears.

    My favourite reviewer is this guy:
    http://www.youtube.com/inecomcompany

    He usually review games, consoles, controllers and bananas nothing we haven't seen before, but the way he does it, you can tell he really know what he's doing.

    Yep, I'll agree that Yatzee's latest review is boring ;)

    Clearly he needs to act more ADHD infront of the camera and shout various catchphrases instead of doing informed opinions.

    No I didn't mean it like that. XD
    the guy makes a point. But he's got to use methods on drawing the viewers in. x3

    And the preferred method is more ADHD and shouting various catchphrases. Anyway, I thought we were talking about Nostalgia Critic, not other reviewers of various caliber.

    I was talking about Doug, and here's a question - if you find Yahtzee and Doug so consistently boring - why do you watch them?

    How else can I earn the right to complain about them? ;) Honestly though he is not as bad as Nostalgia Critic who seem to have no redeeming qualities.
