The Escapist is an online magazine that covers all things video game-related. The main attraction of their website is a fast-paced weekly animated review called 'Zero Punctuation' produced by Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw.
Yahtzee’s video game reviews are a combination of brutal nitpicking, crude jokes and talking really fast, but the real kicker is that he takes the art of symbolism to a level that few writers could wrap their heads around.
Due to his emotionally jaded style and willingness to attack the pretentious aspects of some video games, the hardcore gamers are the ones who seem to like him the least.
