His GOTY might surprise you.

Can't stand this guy but his "Worst of 2012" list is spot on. Neverdead and Amy were two of the worst games ever. They played horribly. Neverdead looked like the UK's take on a Suda 51 game, then you played it and the level design was crap, the constant enemy respawning until you destroyed a sack was crap, the way enemies would knock you apart with one hit and then play soccer with your head was crap. Amy had some things I wanted to like, but the entire thing was just so tedious and annoying to play. The other games were crap but not nearly as offensive as these two.

Isn't he the guy who admitted to nitpicking superfluous issues solely for humor and only playing miniscule bits of a game before reviewing them?

I don't know about the second part but picking on games for humor is a big part of his act yes.

Feel free to watch the video to form your own opinions though.

Thanks.

Story is often a point of contention for him and that explains 4/5 of his tops. XCOM is just awesome.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 2, 2013 6:02:32 PM PST
Spec Ops is on there, that's pretty darn cool. I also agree with Dishonored.

Spec Ops and Dishonored FTW. Also play The Walking Dead at the moment and really liking it.

I had a lot of fun playing Neverdead, is there something wrong with me?

Good thing your opinion is irrelevant, I suppose.

I know, right? A game with a focus on story, decisions, and quick thinking....ew.

lol @ RE6

I loved the image for TWD. "Everything's **************ed....VELOCIRAPTOR!"

It isn't a game. It is a cartoon that occasionally asks you to hit buttons. Yeah, "ew". There are plenty of story focused games out there that don't bore you to tears that actually let you play something.

If I want to watch the Walking Dead, I'll turn on AMC.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 3, 2013 9:19:10 AM PST
Calm down bro. Your opinion is the minority on the forum here. So you come spamming your anti-TWD propaganda you'll get condemned! CONDEMNED I tell yas.

Good lists. RE6 is the worst game that I played this year, those other games all have been pretty well panned too. Still want to play Spec Ops.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 3, 2013 9:23:13 AM PST
Is it really that bad? I didn't mind the demo, but it felt rushed.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 3, 2013 9:24:40 AM PST
Yes, it is that bad. And I have loved every single RE game, from the first game with it's awful controls and voice acting to RE5 with it's running zombies that shoot RPG's, RE6 was just turrible.
