  • ZeitGeistgreview is a weird combination of the beautiful german term Zeitgeist and just some ordinary review. I mean, really, how could you dare combining those?

    Actually, Zeitgeist was the name of my characters in MMOs as I played them over the years, and those MMOs were running my life. I gave up on them cold turkey and decided to do game reviews instead. It was a natural transition to use my MMO character name in my review title, and as such, named myself Zeitgeist Game Review.

  • Good review. It told me everything I needed to know without giving anything away. I was worried about watching it at first but it turned out pretty good.

    Okay, i see but it still makes me shiver.

    Fair enough. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it more in depth. I get comments on it a lot, especially in reference to the Zeitgeist Movement, which many assume that I'm associated simply by name.

  • Quite simple, for my personal taste, these two words just don't fit together and it sounds terrible. I'm german and Zeitgeist is a interesting term, which is often widely used as well as abused in more intellectual classes because of its meaning and due to that it sounds kind of hip.

    Maybe it's a little bit like mixing Absinth with some yoghurt banana drink.

    Aye, and that's the exact reason I used it as my character's name in MMOs. It sounded cool. I suppose I'd relate it the most to American's who get Chinese words tattooed on their bodies for no other reason than the characters look cool.

  • Just be aware that you might make some fool out of yourself when using this combi in germany. ;O)

    Noted

  • Yeah, when I was Searching for the channel it came up with all these strange suggestions like religion and a movie. No idea what that's about.
