Mine would absolutely be his review of Arcanum. Basically, that's the one that totally made me understand his review philosophies.
Ok I'll bite. What's your favorite Greg kasavin review?
The Red Steel review is great. You have to remember the context - Red Steel was supposed to be the game that showed off how the Wii remote could take first person to the next level, and instead it sucked. Greg's dead-pan dissection is just what was needed to make sure I never bought this title!
Oh yeah, and the last 3 seconds are... unique.
Oh man. Kasavin was the main reason why I got so into games because he inspired me to actually carefully consider what I played and think about what was going on in my games. I definitely looked into whatever he recommended because it was a safe bet that it was worth my time and money.
My favorite Greg Kasavin review?
Loved that chess review!
There are so many Kasavin greats. The advance wars games were great as were his KOTOR reviews. The one that sticks in my mind the most is his review of Ace Combat 5. It was the first video review I ever saw on the internet. I had just discovered gamespot, and i was frankly amazed that there was a website like this that actually reviewed games via video.....awesome! (I know was very late to the party!) Because of this introduction, Greg was always Mr Gamespot to me. I miss him too........sob! I'm watching it again now, ah the memories!!!
Greg K was a fantastic reveiwer. My personal most trusted in his reviewing days. I'm glad to hear he's enjoying his new line of work so much.
I enjoyed his review of Icewind Dale II . Very informative, and assured me that it was done right, and would be a game I would enjoy for a long time. And he was right, it was.
I'd say Metriod Prime cause it was the first video review I saw on gamespot and the first time I saw Greg. Though I initially didn't think much of him I came to respect him greatly. Still, hearing all these guys talking about their favourite reviews brings back so many good memories. ^^
His review of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/theelderscrollsivoblivion/index.html?tag=result;title;1
Greg Kasavin was and still is my favourite reviewer of all time.
His writing and the way in which he delivered his opinion were of the highest quality.
He was also a great speaker, and knew his stuff.
Oh boy, favourite review? I can't choose a specific one, but here are my favourites:
- Ninja Gaiden
- Final Fantasy X
- Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
- Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (1 hour of Greg!)
- Devil May Cry 3
- Metroid Prime
- Halo 2
- World of Warcraft
His World of Warcraft review always stuck with me. When he said "it makes you glad that you are someone who plays games and feel sorry for people who don't" i felt that he was dead on. When that game first came out it was just a wonderfully epic experience, truly something else.
Also yeah, his Ninja Gaiden Review.
