@Entropy730 Well, some people find it amusing. If you don't, don't watch it or keep your comments to yourself. You can't complain your way to a change in Start/Select presentation. I think most of them would probably laugh at you if you suggested to them a more serious tone. It's video content and it's fun for people to watch. If I'm British (which I am) and this is uk.gamespot, then why are you here complaining about the way our British edition of Gamespot is not to your liking? Go to .com instead, or find some other review website. I admit sometimes some things they do are a bit painful to watch, lol but for the most part I find their stuff quite enjoyable. They do put in a good effort and they cover a lot of game related stuff in all of their other videos. I'm not overly keen on Monty Python but it is quite funny, an the British, original version of The Office is how it is supposed to be, although Carell is undoubtedly hilarious. I never really liked The Office anyway. Maybe you and 90% of the World, or whoever it may be outside of the UK, should go to another website and stop commenting on British humour, if you don't find it funny? It'd save hassle. ...and yes, it's down to personal taste.

@UKFX i pointed out how immature and dumb his sense of humor was; a website like this used to have (and deserves) better. Has nothing to do with or without personal misery. Just stating an opinion. But since your name has UK in it, and you used "sod" and "git" you're probably British yourself so I wouldn't be surprised if you found this video funny, which is perfectly fine. And yeah, I get what it's supposed to mimic - it's just not funny. If anyone here is "miserable" it wouldn't be me. I mean, you WERE bothered enough about my opinion to comment on it. If you disagree with me whatever, that's fine. I never liked Monty Python or the British version of The Office anyway - thought they were so... I don't know the word - just lame I guess. But that's just me and like, 90% of the world. Chock it up to personal taste

@Entropy730 Doesn't help that you're a misrable sod though, does it? I think they are pretty humourous. The idea behind it is to be awkward and sarcastic. This video is meant to mimic those sort of wildlife experts who babble on about stuff with a dull and dreary commentary. Dumb hipster brits? Oh no. If you're anywhere west of the UK, you haven't the right to type on your keyboard anymore. Oh good news to everyone else who isn't a misrable git... my copy of Skyrim shipped this morning at 8:35am. Should arrive tomorrow morning with First Class Signed For post. :) Good times. Let's hope the frame rate isn't as bad as BF3's 20fps.

get rid of these dumb hipster brits please. their senses of humor are embarrassingly unfunny and awkward - even for video game nerds actually i take back the video game nerd part because Gamespot USED TO have really funny, clever and charming staff. of course danny o'dwyer is better than almost all of them, but that's easy to explain; he's Irish... i don't mean to hurt his feelings, it's just that this site had better quality and used to cater to a more mature audience that doesn't have boogers streaming down their faces. i'm pretty sure johnny is old enough to legally drink and join the military yet his sense of humor is equal to that of a 14-year old.... it just doesn't work

I don't know. I'm kind of wary. I have a suspicion it won't take advantage of the superior graphics and control mechanics of the PC. Hopefully my suspicions are groundless and Skyrim will be awesome from A to Z.

@silkiewilky i counted them! he says beautifull 7 times! at one point he says "the magnificent dragon..." (i thought WOW he used a synonim) "is a beautiful creature" (=S) "but truly tamriel is all the more beautifull for that"

silkiewilky

Although Beautiful is a Beautiful word. Beautiful can be used too many times and results in a less Beautiful video. Beautiful can be typed into the most Beautiful arrangement of letters to produce the same meaning as Beautiful. A Beautiful system called the thesaurus allows many Breathtaking synonyms for the word beautiful.

You should have acted. In 2 days time it'll be here. Bethesda told of its return. Its release was merely delay Til the time after Oblivion became GOTY, When Skyrim was destined for GOTY. But Call of Duty and Battlefield didn't want to believe, believe it even existed. And when november 11th finally dawns, it dawns in FIRE!
