Patrick!

Edited by X5_2000

Finally some Patrick hilarities

Posted by Joe_Wildheart

yay patrick

Posted by EuanDewar

Oh wow Patrick liked Catherine? That's a total surprise, to me at least. Not mocking his choice but that was a bit left field.

Posted by Imsorrymsjackson

Wonder if this will win Patrick some friends on here as he is the only person to give a shit about Skyward Sword.

Posted by Raios

It had its issues, but I'm glad to see Zelda getting some recognition

Posted by Jackel2072

good list, i really should play  Catherine. 

Posted by JohnRabbit

Catherine?!

Posted by netfluffyG

Nice Lost/Alice in Wonderland reference.

Posted by asian_pride

Oh hey, look at that. Despite giving it 4 stars, Patrick put Skyward Sword on his list. How's that, you Zelda grieving motherfucking cunts?!

Wow, surprised at Catherine. I mean, I also put it in my list, but never really expected any of the staff to actually like it that much. Overall, good list Patrick :)

I really appreciate that Patrick is well able to articulate the things that are great about his choices. Patrick is refreshing on this site for being able to embody an earnest seriousness when it comes to everything videogamey. I have a feeling that the easiest way to get into an argument with him would be to say "dude, this is just entertainment".

If I had to make a top ten list for things that happened on GB in 2011, Patrick's expanded role in this place's proceedings would definitely be high up on that list.

This, and exactly exactly this.

"Portal 2 is not as good as Portal."

Haha, wow.

this dubstep ghost thing IS SO. FUCKING. STUPID/GENIUS.

Edited by AlmostSwedish

Too much talking, too little dubstep.

Posted by Suedehead

Patrick's alien character is super weird out of context.

This.

The type of perspective Patrick often provides was much needed on GB.

Posted by umdesch4

While I'm thinking along these lines, I'd also like to mention...my favorite video-moment of the year on GB was at the bombhouse during E3, which Patrick was crawling around on the floor demonstrating how some game (I even forget what it was) was broken/janky. I rewatched that bit about a dozen times, and laughed myself silly.

Posted by TehJedicake

ohhhh so that's why I've never heard of that Sword and Sorcery game, cause it's apple.

lol He sounds a lot calmer on this video

Dubstep Andross.

Yah I was like What?! How?!

Posted by synthesis_landale

This is probably the best list of the guys so far. (Well, best meaning the one I agree with most) Though I was disappointed with the choice of Skyrim as number one, and I'd have reordered them a little. I guess this list makes up for Patrick's Non-Stop Bieber Toothbrush moments, a moment when I'd have killed him to make it stop. ^_^;;

Posted by Zippedbinders

I wasn't expecting Patrick to have such a selection of dark horse games in his list, but goddamn if I don't agree with them. Great list, good sir.

Posted by AlisterCat

I disagree. I think Portal 2 is a better game, it just isn't as impactful.

Posted by MisterMouse

still enjoying the FMV stuff, and some great view points on the games he liked.

Posted by Animasta

Honestly, for Catherine, if you didn't actually like the block puzzles I don't see how it's number 2 on your list; It's number 2 on mine, but it wouldn't have even made it had the block puzzles not been engaging to me.

Posted by Tireyo

Patrick got a unique list going on here!

Posted by LiquidSwords

Kleptok, the lord of the Wub!

Dubstep Andross.

That made me smile. ^^

Also... I started playing Sword & Sworcery today. Just one chapter in but it's nice, unique looking and has a very special soundmix. Interesting so far.

Posted by mutha3

Wow. Really surprising list. Skyward Sword over Deus Ex?

I agree with this, but its nice to see it on there anyway.

Posted by Gaff

@Animasta: He kind of explained, didn't he? In his opinion, Catherine tries to engage the players with questions about morality, relationships and sex. The game might be "clumsy", but, for him, those themes were important and unique enough to award it 2nd place?

I like Patrick putting Catherine on his list and actually challenging jeff on his damning review

Posted by Deathpooky

Portal 2 is not as good as Portal? Opinions and all, but... no. Just no. Less original, maybe. But Portal 2 is a better game is just about every way possible.

Posted by McDevy

Man, not really in-line with Pat's order as I had thought but we ended on the same top spot so cool!

Kleptok is by far the best thing about these FMVs though! Fuck!

This.

The type of perspective Patrick often provides was much needed on GB.

I think "This is just entertainment" or "It's just a ___ game" is the single biggest thing holding this industry back because it's coming from within the industry itself. It's not some jagoff ambulance chaser trying to prolong his 15 minutes of fame or a "concerned" parents group trying to grab headlines, it's OUR fault as both an industry and consumers.

Patricks hair could solve world hunger.

Edited by WatanabeKazuma

That's one surprising list, I wasn't expecting it to be so varied.

For the same reasons I put it on my list, its an original concept and does some unique things that make the experience worthwhile. His reasoning was perfectly justified. The gameplay isn't explicitly bad, it just wasn't the main draw for many.

Posted by probablytuna

Haha another excellent video.

Posted by Dixavd

This was a fantastic top 10, especially how Patrick explained why he put it there.

My question is though if Patrick nudged Catherine up a few spots since many seem to be forgetting about it or since Jeff dispises that games very existence?

Also nice to see Skyward Sword mentioned without simply making a line about it being a "reason to dust of your wii" and actually seriously talking about the game.

Posted by dr_mantas

Yeah, we all Beyond Good and Evil 2, Patrick. Speak the truth.

Also, good wub wub list wub, Kleptok. Catherine is an interesting number two.

EDIT: Also "I didn't like the game part of Catheringe but the subject matter-" READ A FUCKING BOOK THEN. IT'S NOT A GOOD GAME. BOOKS ARE GREAT.

Yeah, but it'd have to be a choose you own adventure though, to give at least a tiny amount of interactivity.

Edited by G24S

No surprise that Patrick had Skyward Sword on the list because he was like the only one I think that've played it.

Posted by Christoffer

Catherine is an interesting number 2? Although he didn't sound that convincing I guess it's all in the eye of the beho... player.
