I think the CDi games are the main reason why Link isn't generally allowed to talk.

One would think so... Now that I think about, did everyone of those CDi games have Nintendo characters saying more than "Woohoo!" and assorted grunts? Because outside of CDi's, you never hear the characters speak other than the "Woohoo!" and grunts.

Speaking of speaking, has anyone seen that episode of Robot Chicken mocking the Legend of Zelda games?

Yes, everyone talks in the CD-i games, cheesy text and horrible voice-acting. You should watch the AVGN's review of them at GameTrailers.

And no, I haven't seen.

Don't you guys know what a silent protagonist is?

The reason that most nintendo characters (Mario, Link, Pokemon Trainer, just to name a few) don't talk is to allow the player to feel more like they are playing through the character, as opposed to them controlling a person they find completely unrelateable. It's allows the player to connect with the character in a way that would be impossible if the character had a fleshed out personality.
or something like that.

I've always found that odd, since the role of Chosen Hero of Destiny or whatever is forced on you anyways.

No you shouldn't, because that is the least funny shit in the universe.

LOL I kinda agree with you Zach. Then again I don't. I am satisfied with AVGN and Zero Punctuation as long as they don't rage my favorite video game series: Metroid

Zero Punctuation is witty. AVGN is depressing.

I agree with you there, AVGN is like a forum troll.

Zero Punctuation is, I suppose, constructive criticism.

Yahtzee is an awesome man, but his last week's episode was seriously the worst of his all reviews. I really hope he tries harder this time.

I wouldn't even call whatever Yahtzee does "reviewing." It really is just ranting, but it's quick and sharp, and every once in a while he has an observation that is spot on.

Plus he makes fun of Ctrl Alt Del so he's gotta be good people.

The Webcomics episode is one of his best.

Hey, wait...this conversation went a bit off-topic. Is there a ZP thread somewhere in this forum?

Considering that the topic of this thread is "Here is what I hate about the work you do because I am a dick and really want you to be aware of this," I'm all for keeping it derailed.

Speaking of critics, I found a couple of the Nostagia Critic's reviews amusing. Goes by That Guy With the Glasses, or somethin. But anyway, his reviews on Double Dare and the first Pokemon movie were pretty funny.

I thought his madwrold review was one of the better ones he's done in a while.
Though unlike most ZP fans I actually like when he praises games (See: Orange Box)

The critisisms he brought up for Madworld were mostly fair, though I still love the game. And I too enjoy the rare occaisions where he praises games. (No More Heroes baby)

The MadWorld review consisted mostly of needless Wii-bashing without any good jokes. Yahtzee sounded like a whiny fanboy in that review.

Today's episode was hilarious, though.

Only seen two of Yahtzee's rants: Soul Caliburre IV and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I laughed at them both, harder at the Soul review though.
