Favorite Games

When asked on Reddit "What would you class as your favourite game?", he said "Either Silent Hill 2 or Portal".

He praised Pyschonauts, The Orange Box, and Monkey Island 1 and 2, but I think he didn't rank them among his favorites.

The Portal and Orange Box quotes are from his The Orange Box review

In his Prince of Persia Retrospective he had a list of 5 favorite games including :

1: Portal
2: Silent Hill 2.
3: PoP: Sands of Time.
4: Spider-man 2.
5: Fantasy world Dizzy.

He later said the list wasn't to be taken seriously. He may have mentioned the last two games sarcastically.

2007



He didn't pick a GOTY so I picked the most impressive game from the video.

BioShock - Xbox 360

...2K's steampunk Objectivist philsophyfest BioShock. Now, there's a lot of criticism that can be leveled at [the protagonist]: he's a bitch, he's an alcoholic, he has some very strange ideas of how to treat small children. But all of this is countered by the fact that he has a magical hand that shoots bees. And that's why he takes the prize. Because no matter who you are, the moment you're compared to a magical hand that shoots bees you're going to fucking lose. - Yahtzee Croshaw

Saints Row 2 - Xbox 360

It wasn't until recently when Saints Row 2 came along that I remembered what a fun sandbox game is and isn't: What it isn't is brown, gritty and forced tutorials, and what it is is taking all your clothes off, hurling yourself out of a plane and landing ass-crack-first on a sunbather's face. Saints Row 2 might not be the smartest game in the world, but I had more fun with it than any other 2008 release, so I guess it had better be my game of the year - but don't let it go to your heads. - Yahtzee Croshaw

2009


The year in review is mostly negative. He thinks Arkham Asylum is the most impressive of a weak year of games.
People who added this item 357 Average listal rating (209 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 0

Despite Batman walking pompously around like Gotham's grumpy dad, and dialogue that presumably came free with a script writing software, Arkham successfully balanced combat and stealth and managed to do the impossible by giving comic book nerds something they wouldn't be able to complain about. - Yahtzee Croshaw

Just Cause 2 - Xbox 360

...there were only two games this year that I wanted to keep playing after I'd reviewed them. Dead Rising 2... [and] Just Cause 2, an almost Garry's Mod-like bundle of free-roaming fun tied up in a loose but still involving gameplay structure in a world about twice the size of the entire universe. Any criticism I might have given it is drowned out by the terrified scream of an enemy soldier with one leg tied to a harrier jet. - Yahtzee Croshaw

Dead Rising 2 - Xbox 360

Ironing out Dead Rising 1 's sizable wrinkles of unreasonable difficulty and [stupid] A.I. ...Dead Rising 2 is on one level a uniquely colorful take on sandbox gameplay and on another a game in which you plow through crowds of squishy antagonists with many varieties of sharp things on the ends of sticks. - Yahtzee Croshaw

Red Dead Redemption - Xbox 360

Rockstar's Old West odyssey might have suffered a little from a bit of kitchen sink approach to gameplay, a kitchen sink full of brown washing-up, but overall was like throwing yourself onto a mattress made of soft meringue: unstructured, but oddly satisfying. - Yahtzee Croshaw

[Amnesia: The Dark Descent is] another dismal, traumatizing experience... In a mainstream industry where "survival horror" now means "action adventure wherein monsters from the back page of H. R. Geiger's teenage sketch diary do the Charleston under neon disco lighting," Amnesia showed everyone how horror is done: unspeakable monstrosities half-glimpsed out of the corner of the eye, no means of self-defense besides a sprint function, and dolphin-unsafe tuna occasionally extruding from the walls.- Yahtzee Croshaw

Limbo - Xbox 360 Live Arcade

...a short but stark physics platformer as genuinely unnerving as Eastern European animation and best analogized as LittleBigPlanet visualized by a suicidal depressive. - Yahtzee Croshaw

Portal 2 - PC Games

Despite the single-player being a bit flabby and directionless and lacking in really meaty puzzles, let's face it: even the dodgiest Portal game stands head and shoulders above most of the dross that comes out. - Yahtzee Croshaw

Thank you for making this how did you get the video to work? Oh right youtube. You missed prince of persia 2 and thief 2 and maybe monkey island. Oh and webcomics too.
