    Who is your favourite video game critic?

    My personal favourites are the Angry Video Game Nerd (James Rolfe, AVGN), Irate Gamer (Chris Bores), Spoony One (Noah Antwieler) and Angry Joe (Joe Vargas). But who are yours? I chose so many because I can't pick! They're all as wacky and vulgar as each other!

    I like Jeff Gerstman from Giant Bomb...he is funny, and we usually tend to have the some tastes.

      Ah yes, the guy who was fired from IGN for giving Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Crap a 6.5 out of 10. I have to say, I'm glad he left - he's probably doing MILES better! Thanks for the recomendation, I'll check his reviews out!

    Actually I love the UK games magazine called EDGE. It has some of the best critics and reviews as it is fairly impartial with strong industry focus and does a lot of retro analysis and authoritative voice. As it is not aligned to one format it does neutral reviews and previews. The mag is handsomely produced and has a very non generic look for a magazine of that kind high on design and aesthetics too! Its now available for ipad.

    I also like the video reviews on GAMESPOT.COM

      I've seen this magazine around but never picked it up. Maybe I'll get an issue of it if I get paid this week and not be tempted to buy my next graphic novel installment. Thankies! ^^

    I guess you could say Totalbiscuit. I don't really follow many of the video game sites much any more, but I enjoy TBs stuff and his humor.

      It was Totalbiscuit who introduced me to Freemium MMO DC:UO and various other games, and he is a great reviewer! Thanks for the answer Keith!

    Why myself of course!   ;-)

    Was always a fan of Julian Rignall back in the day (he reviewed for ZZAP 64) - and the guys in Crash Magazine were usually spot-on.

    These days I still enjoy reading PC Gamer and find their reviews informative and pretty much accurate

    I would have to say that My favorite at the moment is Angry Video Game Nerd, He's played so many old school games, on various systems. 

    I've only watched  two of Spoony One's videos ( The Thing and Phantasmagoria 2: A Puzzle of the Flesh)  I've only recently found out about Angry Joe. He's amusing and goes the extra few by doing some cosplay skit from time to time.

    DarksydePhil of the DSPGaming, a Youtube channel has his "Hateful Truth" reviews.  Which are kind of straight forward compared to AVGN and Spoony One
