I'm going to respectfully disagree. Graham hopped in, and did a respectable send up of Yahtzee's review style. He's never done anything like it before, he han't had years of practice at it, and he's not an angry british fellow living in Australia. Graham's bit was interesting and funny, and everyone on the escapist's biggest complaint about it seems to be that Graham isn't Yahtzee.
It's just a gag - but its unfair and unrealistic to expect Graham to come out of the gate on this and one up Yahtzee at his own game. For what it's worth, I though G did a fantastic job with it, and as I said to him last night, he's not Yahtzee, but anyone who doesn't enjoy his send up is just being a dink.
The reason I found it mediocre was because yes he was not Yahtzee but he tried to do it to much like Yahtzee, I personally wanted to see a Graham style review with Yahtzee being a jerk about the whole thing in the background. Just a Graham flavored imitation while good, is not great. But yeah you're right that considering he just jumped right into it I have to agree that it was well done.
... so you didn't like the joke, because it's a different joke than you wanted them to do?
the whole crossover was about graham and yahtzee doing each-other's thing. if G had done his own style review instead of trying to rip off Yahtzee it would have missed the entire point of the joke - G was supposed to be trying to rip yahtzee off exatly.
