An awesome gaming website that no one went on until they started showing Zero Punctuation. Most people only go on Wednesdays for Zero Punctuation, which is a shame because they have lots of other awesome shows like Unskippable and There Will Be Brawl.
Guy: Dude, lets go watch Zero Punctuation on The Escapist!
Brush: Sweet, then lets watch Unforgotten Realms!
Something that deceptively appears to be wonderful but once tried turns out to be revolting (too late).
"Over the last few weeks most of the games I have been reviewing have been good or at least not bad enough to justify what we call in the ghetto 'getting my knickers in a twist'. And since I've just received my modest tax refund, my tension has been slowly rising from not having enough to be angry or miserable about. So thank you Clive Barker, thank you for this opportunity to unwind by calling your game a spunk-flavored lollipop!" - Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw
A group of people with hilarious accents that mostly live on an island off the coast of the REAL Europe. Are notable for their hatred of Americans despite the fact that, unlike many other nations, they don't actually have a good reason for it. Their most meaningful contribution to the modern world is the video game reviewer Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw.
British People: Wot wot, etc.
|18.||A bucket of retarded pies|
Being so stupid, that you can't get any dumber.
"Ironing our Dead Rising 1's sizeable wrinkles of unreasonable difficulty, and A.I. on the level of a bucket of retarded pies..."
- Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw
|19.||PC Master Race|
A facetious term used to claim the superiority of gamers who use personal computers, coined by comedian and video game critic Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. Generally used to mock people who take the PC-console divide far too seriously.
Often contrasted against "dirty console peasants", an equally jocular term.
"Consoles are so much better than you PC nerds. You can like, hook them up to TVs instead of just monitors."
"Except you can totally do that. PC master race, buy an HDMI cable noob."
