The Escapist Magazine
« on: December 03, 2007, 07:11:02 am »
a few of you already know about this....a wonderful little place where Game Reviews become riddles with negativity and a British accent that you cannot turn away from.

The sketches are wonderful (albiet mainly negative in exception for Portal) and by the end of each one you cannot help but laugh.

The reviewer, aptly named "Yahtzee"  has reviewed such games as BioShock, Halo 3, Paper Mario, and various others.

So watch a few, laugh a bit and think about what gaming USED to be, before it became a second job.

You know, Yathzee isn't the only part of Escapist.

He is, however, the awesomest game reviewer out there. Zero Punctuation rules.

This guy is like the Charlie Brooker of video games! Except that Charlie Brooker sometimes talks about video games too...
