Funny game reviews (Zero Punctuation)

This may have been posted elsewhere on the forums, but seeing as this is a general game forum I think it should be mentioned here as well.

The weekly motor-mouthed Zero Punctuation game review videos are sheer comedy in my opinion. I may not agree with everything he says, and their value as reviews if you aren't familiar with the games already may be questionable, but some of them are so funny I end up crying with laughter while watching them. Even if you don't care about the games themselves the videos are worth watching for the comedy value alone. .)

Warning: Some of them contains a bit of colorful language, so if you are offended by that sort of thing then don't watch them.

Zero Punctuation is just plain awesome - I've been watching Yahtzee's reviews for a couple of months now and every single one of them has me in stitches.

Refreshingly brutal.

Iíve never seen Zero Punctuation before. I believe you need to add another warning.

Warning: May cause choking if watched while eating.

I almost fell over onto the floor watching the Tomb Raider and the Halo 3 reviews.

Nice find stoffe and thanks for sharing.

I never thought that there would be anything better than Zero Punctuation...

Until I read Yahtzee's text reviews.

Just finished reading Animal Crossing review, and all I have to say is Awesome. <s>Plus, no bad words! YES!</s> Wait. Never mind. I see a bad word. My bad.

There is a new review posted weekly on Wednesdays on the Escapist site. The ones listed above are, as far as I know, all that have been made so far.

Only seen the Halo 3 review yet, and I can barely reach my chair and keyboard, seeing how I fell on the floor, screaming and laughing out loud.

Yes, I think he only started back in August - there's a video on YouTube explaining how he was picked up by the SS Sellout. Just search for Yahtzee.
