I think there needs to be a distinction between Drama and Tragedy, I feel this video doesn't understand very well where the line is between them.
Not all dramas need to have a 20-minutes happy build-up in order to seem sad later. You can empathize with the character even if you didn't SEE him...
Was honestly surprised at the fact that he reviewed it. Not surprised that he liked it.
No game reviewer can argue that it is a BAD game, only an evil game like any other MMO. The game didn't reach 12m subscribers by being littered with bad design choices. Nobody saying it isn't evil; some...
This is stupid. People are not asking Bioware to make an RTS, they are asking a critic to criticize.
There's a HUGE difference between MAKING something (where the term 'area of expertise' applies) and CRITICIZING something.
I know I did something along these lines last week but I'll do it again in a slightly more aggressive tone. Note that this is NOT to convince Yahtzee to review something that he doesn't enjoy, it's just calling him out.
Saying your opinion as a game reviewer doesn't matter on a certain genre...
It's not about expertise; SC2 is easy enough that anyone without RTS experience can play and enjoy the (awesome) campaign. It's not until you hit multiplayer that you start hitting brick walls if you're inexperienced.
Awww, no starcraft 2 :(
Oh well, entertaining nevertheless.
edit: it was practically the first RTS I finished since I don't like this genre and it was still awesome.
what do you say yahtzee, screw Halo Wars and start with this one?
Thief 1 was, imo, better than Thief 2 but this is of course a matter of preference. T3 was obviously sh!t except for the focking AWESOME Shalebridge Cradle level which every (true) gamer knows for being the single most horrific level of a game ever designed.
The review was nice and it's...
