Zero Punctuation is a better review show. Yahtzee is funnier than the AVGN. Anyone who has seen both shows knows this. The AVGN is funny, no doubt about it, but I think that Zero Punctuation is a better show for reviewing games. Also, Yahtzee reviews current games, not games that I played when I was four. Zero Punctuation's MS paint figures add to how much it pwns.

Hey Markchengy.

Your first point is that Yahtzee(The man behind Zero Punctuation) is much funnier than the Angry Video Game Nerd. I contend that the funniness of an individual is based on individual tastes. For example, I find Dane Cook not particularly funny, but many people do find him funny.

You also say that Yahtzee is better because he reviews modern games, and not retro/old school games. I believe that is something cool about the AVGN, it brings back a sense of nostalgia, and some people prefer old video games to new ones, like my Mother, who will not play Super Mario Galaxy, but loves Super Mario World. This gives him more material, as he could rant about newer games as well.

That being said, I actually like ZP over AVGN. This just sounded like a fun debate.
