So what do you think of this guy? His name is Ben Croshaw. He is a video game reviewer and extremely critical of game franchise such as Halo, Mario Bros, Metal Gear Solid, GTA, and others.

He seems to satirize his reviews and can could care less about the rage of rabid fanboys.

Have you seen his reviews? Here is one of his recent reviews:

I love him. stick out tongue



His reviews are often hilarious and I tend to agree with a lot of what he says, and we seem to share the same ideas about gaming. His Condemned 2 review is classic. laughing out loud

Yahtzee is great. I love his reviews. Even when I disagree, I can still laugh at the humor, and the guy certainly has a way with words. Few can string together such eloquent insults.

Yeah he's great, seen all of his reviews.

A few of them aren't so great though, but luckly there arent many of those. I like how when he is talking about perfection Portal is next to Jesus on the scale.

He's alright.

I like his articles in PC Gamer. Don't actually go to his website very often.

His webcomic rant this week was probably the weakest he has done, it really didnt interest me. I was hoping he would review more old games that he liked, like his Painkiller review. I had never played or knew anything about Painkiller, but it was still funny as hell to hear him talk about. stick out tongue

I agree, I didn't see the point of taking on Ctrl+Alt comic. I like it better when he takes on games or franchises. Aside from that the guy is real good.

Wow. I just watched a bunch of them. The Mass Effect one in particular made me laugh my ass off.

I think he sucks.. he doesnt even try to be knowledgeable about the game he reviews (on a gameplay basis).. all he does is rag on it at face-value

the only reason he gets popular is cuz he's the only one who'll speak 'against the crowd'... cliche, IMO

funny? sure..
am I gonna base whether or not I purchase a game based on his review? hell no..

Now that you reminded me of that webcomic I went back and read some, and first now I understand what he meant about the woman mysteriously becoming girlfriend while all he does is stare at her beasts. That was truly a pretty crappy part of ctrl alt, will take a look at the later strips to see if ti has improved.

And Sat, I think you are taking it way too serious.

I like him, he's real funny... whenever I understand him, cuz he talks really fast...

I actually never heard of him until a few months ago when I got a "Zero Puntuation" theme for my PSP...

Quite funny, But I don't take his opinion too seriously...

He's funny. But you have a couple decent points. It's clear he likes certain types of games and despises others. So it could be a great game (Mass Effect, for example) and he could give it a crappy review because he's clearly not an RPG'er. A lot of the stuff he was railing against were cool to me (and others, apparently).

But that's his job. Give scathing reviews of popular titles and be funny. I wouldn't necessarily trust his opinion all the time, but that doesn't mean I won't listen to him.
