I personally don't like Yahtzee for the way he discriminates people in his reviews
i never saw it like that. when he makes fun of groups like nintendo fanboys, he is obviously talking about those who are fans of nintendo games because it is nintendo, even if the game is lame. and who attack anybody who has critique towards something they like.then we agree in that point
I personally don't like Yahtzee for the way he discriminates people in his reviews, I've seen the reviews and thats my interpretation of them, thats all

he obviously uses and abuses of stereotypes like the fat dorky MMORPG player character but thats just funny.
if you remove anything that could hurt somebody you would end up with a dull review that wouldn't get 5% of the views he gets now.
take it for what it is, an exagerrated humoristic review.
I think some of you don't "get" Yahtzee's humour. Whether you agree with his reviews or not, it doesn't matter. At all. It's not the point.
I dig Yahtzee but he's an asshole, no doubt about it.
Id rather he did a positive review from time to time, along the lines of Psychonauts but everybody told him he's funnier when negative so I guess that makes him a spineless asshole.
So what, you're also in the SSBB > all camp and that's why you're up in arms over his critique style? The guy calls it as he sees it, and isn't afraid to pussyfoot around the flaws in a game. Frankly, more reviews need to be like that.
if this guy would review RO and if he has any consistency, then im am sure he would point out good parts as: no american herous that save the day, price, steep learning curve, different gameplay, bayo's,gore, no kiddies, realistic compared to others of the genre... and for the bad parts he could use: no SP(i don't care) elitist playerbase, high learning curve again, few servers to play on as he is an aussy,... im having trouble finding more objective bad parts he could use, so it is likely that he would turn discussably good/bad features into bad features to be able to make some jokes, things like recoil being excessive so that you couldn't hit an elefant from 5 m, or the annoying stamina and weapon sway. if he actually wanted to stay consistent with his other reviews he should actually acclaim those features, as he always critiques games that don't have them.
