    MG Survive is here? Yahtzee gave it lukewarm praise and now it's 3rd worst?

    • SicParvisMagna123

      He said in the review that at best it's "occasionally not boring". That still sounds negative enough to be 3rd worst to me.

    Don't think anybody here even heard of Hunt or Conan outside of Yahtzee or browsing steam upcoming games you'll never play. Really surprised Yahtzee put Spider-man on the "best" list after shitting all over it for it being [duh] just an arkham game with webslinging, more QTE, and shinier graphics for casual scumbags who don't care to play anything unique...

    The hell you talking about? 2018 was stacked with stuff like Yakuza 6 and Kiwami, Ni no Kuni 2, Vampyr, The Banner Saga 3, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Crossing Souls, Overcooked 2, Sprint Vector, Astro Bot, Bow to Blood, The Persistance, etc etc.
    Detroit: Become Human was pretty solid, not sure how you went with that with the genuine trash this year.

    Spider-Man sucks. There, someone said it. It's a super generic open-world game that has been done 1,000 times before with an added swinging mechanic. Know what might have made it good? Actually being able to fight Spider-man villains instead of some made up one with the same generic masked henchman throughout 90% of the game as you repeat the same missions over and over. Let's not get started on those god awful Mary Jane missions.
    Also Yahtzee apparently never played Crying is Not Enough. At least Freeman functioned as a game somewhat.

    4:47 I'm willing to bet that a good proportion of those dislikes are from angry Firefly fans, who have been pissed off about its cancellation for over 15 years now and are constantly looking for any available outlet to vent their rage about this. I say this as a Firefly fan who is glad it didn't get the opportunity to become completely shit as most TV shows eventually end up after too many seasons of relentless corporate milking.

    How is a way out, a game that is based entirely around split screen, using it to the fullest extent, bland? Every streamer I watched said it made for one of the most unique gaming experience, and given how rare the concept is, that's not aurprising, makng the placement here completely unfounded.

    Hunt Down the Freeman was most definitely the worst game of the year, because it made Yahtzee question his life choices and get introspective. No game before has done that.

    Kratos Olympuslayer 2 дня назад

    It's kind of funny that even the new god of war is not in any of these lists, it is still everywhere in this video. I guess Yahtzee must have a complex feeling about this game, since he doesn't like this game personally ( so of course it is not in his best list), but it is not in the worst or blandest list either. If Yahtzee really hate this game so much, I think that he can just not mention the new god of war in this video at all.
    Plus, I actually like how Yahtzee uses the new god of war as the typical example of a triple-A game, because it is good AND TYPICAL. Like the very first god of war, the new god of war is a good game indeed, but the big difference is that it has less designs and ideas that coming from SM studio itself or groundbreaking to the game market, comparing with gow 1. Despite its quality and its legacy that inherited from old franchise, when playing new god of war, we can see lots of designs that have already been used in many other triple-A games before and proved to be successful and popular; I think that's why Yahtzee uses the picture of god of war when he mentions triple-A games.
    Nothing wrong about that, though, since the new God of war is still a good game, and I, for one, have witnessed the struggle and pressure that god of war franchise and SM studio went through in the past few years. Under such circumstance, it is smart to reboot god of war with a safe approach. It's just a little shameful that you can no longer simply being you; god of war has to sacrifice and compromise to survive.
    Still, god of war franchise is lucky, since it does reboot successfully due to most reviews and sale number (unlike some other old and classic franchises which suffer or even simply die. For example, Heroes of Might and Magic), and it has so much legacy from the old works to help itself. I just wish that Cory Barlog, reviewers and gamers stop describing the new god of war as having brand new design, revolutionary, sth that never seen before, having much better plot than the old games, or perfect, because the new god of war is none of these. The new god of war has some issues (camera view being one of its biggest problems, as already mentioned by Yahtzee), is far from revolutionary on game design and to current game market, and still needs tons of work to do if the new stories try to surpass the old ones --------- it always bother me that people keep misunderstanding or even ignoring how good the old gows' plot is, and exaggerate the new gow's father-son adventure as the best game plot even, etc. Yes, the method and camera view that new god of war uses to display the story is refreshing (at least comparing to the old gow's), but it's different from and not enough to judge how good the plot actually is. Anyone who has deeply involved into the old gows would be able to know that Kratos' story, as well as his character, is so much, so much more than the laughable stereotype of a piece of muscle wielding two chain blades.

And before you go crazy about that, I also had fun with a lot of mainstream games, like Starcraft, The Forest, Sonic Mania, Warframe, Subnautica, Supreme Commander, Dark Souls, etc, so no, my taste is not shit, not in survival games or otherwise. I just happen to like a game that other people don't, and we can't have that in this day and age, can we? Nooo, fit our broad perspective or go kermit suicide, weeeh!

    And it was this week. I finished it January 6 and stopped thinking about it on January 8. And wouldn't have thought about it again if not for this video.
