Jesus <i>Christ</i>, Yahtzee.

The ending? Not really that funny, done by Father Ted AND South Park in nearly exactly the same fashion (and I guess Blazing Saddles if you go far back enough), and a joke that basically goes oh have you noticed how lazy black people are' then saying oh i didn't really mean it is pretty weaksauce.

I'm not offended, I just rolled my eyes. BUt the comments section? Good lord.

HAHAHAH OH NO HE DI-INT!!!
that was a great one. :-)
please let there be at least one black person who gets generally offended by this review... PLEASE!!!
it would only make the "Not Racist" subliminal messages in the review all the more funny

That is seriously MESSED UP.

I just wanted the excuse to use my new icon.

ETA: And I'm still curious about that gamers/social issues community I linked to. Would you be interested if I did it?

The only way I can reconcile anonymous comments with my faith in humanity is to imagine that everyone who leaves them on youtube, kotaku, local news sites, etc. is at least one of the following: a) drunk; b) posting at work, trapped in a dead-end job life with no emotional outlet; or c) twelve years old. I know it's probably not as true as I would like, but it's the one thing that keeps me from running out into the street and punching people at random.

(The kind of assholes who leave comments on politics blogs, on the other hand, are trolls on the Internet because they are trolls in real life.)

Yahtzee lost me when he slagged classic gaming. Just because you spent your childhood in the United Kingdom and had to subsist on shitty Spectrum games doesn't mean that all of us shared that miserable experience.
