OoT was like the 5th Zelda game or something.



Yes but if you take into consideration that the first zelda game didn't have anything but monsters, the second zelda game was RPG-like, the third one is the one that defined the basic Zelda games formula (the Link to the Past) and the forth which is Link's awakening is different, makes OoT the second game that follows the formula and the first 3d zelda game.

Anyway, I think Yatzees' reviews are great. I even liked the PH one (even though I am a Zelda fanboy - and I don't agree with what he said to an extend).


I think OoT was great. That's not the point. I'm as much a Zelda fan as anyone, it's just that I'd like to see the rabid fanboys squirm when someone like Yatzee criticizes their holy, godlike games.

My bad then, I though you meant that by being the fifth, the game was copied four times therefore boring and repetitive... :sweat:

As far storyline and basic gameplay goes, that's actually a valid criticism of Ocarina of Time. The game is still great fun of course.

He used to much of the unfunny kind of snobbery in the medal of honor review.

Also, is this Yahtzee the same guy who made all those text based adventure games I downloaded? The one with the Trilby character?

One and the same. But, those aren't text based. Text based refers to games like Zork which are all text.

The only con in this thing is the amount of idiot wannabes. Taking after him doesn't make you intelligent, stupid.

I'm guessing his next review will be CoD 4... at least he won't be able to complain about patriotism in that one (US Soldder dies first, HA!)

What do you think?

Same day as Assassin's Creed comes out, I'll bet that's the week after's.

Prediction:
CoD 4
Assassin's Creed
Mass Effect

Wildcard - Mario Galaxy

But remember that the guy lives in Australia, so it's all dependent upon when games hit there (see: Super Paper Mario review). So we have to be mindful of that.

I doubt it's that far removed from the rest of the world to not get Mass Effect or Cod4...

It's pretty fun.

Hey look, Clive Barker's Jericho review is up. He does not like it. Not one bit.

I just realized that this is the guy who made those adventure games... I haven't played them myself.

The 5 Days a Stranger, 7 Days a Skeptic etc. I've been meaning to try 'em out but never gotten around to it.

Then you're really missing out. I found them more enjoyable than the old lucas arts adventure games. The story is dark and intelligent, the whole thing is well written and by the time you've finished 5 days a stranger you'll probably be hooked on the series.
