Yeah. I guess I should make a thread and then we can move this discussion there.

There are examples of him praising games that fit the attributes you just mentioned. He never dismisses games for being any one of these things, instead he explains why they're mediocre/bad examples of that kind of game or why they're too hard or too easy.
Only he isn't very good at explaining a games flaws at all. And since he loves to exagerate minor or non existant flaws (in SSB Brawl you have to UNLOCK stuff, the horror) wether or not something he complains about in a game is legitimate is not something you'll know for sure until you played the game yourself.
That's really the only point I'm trying to make. By all means, watch his videos, laugh and nod when you agree. But for the love of fucking God, DON'T take what he says as the final word, and definitely don't pass on a game you think you might like just because he didn't.
I'll see idiots say they'll pass on a game because he did a video on it, even if he praised the game, because they commented before anyone could possibly even watch the whole video. I'll see people who used to rave about how awesome a game is completely flip after Yahtzee trashes it, and not only go on about how awful it is, but attack anyone who sees any shred of virtue in the game. And then when he does praise a game, his fans will bitch about that too. His audience consists entirely of fucking tools who flat out refuse to enjoy anything. It's a little fitting too, isn't it?
