Excerpt: , for the PC. The last version I played was Volume 3, so I was pretty excited when I heard a new version was finally coming out (although many other versions have come out on PC, as I've learned).
Conclusion: What makes it so easy to sink an entire evening into YDKJ is the strength of its material, regardless of the series' lengthy absence. Contemporary pop-culture trends like Twitter are affably indulged in questions, but not excessively.
Pros: Kooky intellectual potty humor, Stands alone without nostalgia, YDKJ is finally back
Cons: Strangers in online multiplayer, Short rounds go too fast, Running out of questions

Pros: + Really good trivia-game formula; funny questions and delivery., + Accessibility and rapid-fire pace make it a perfect party game.
Cons: - Presentation-wise, it’s a little light on variety and visual flair., ? The YDKJ website lists “New fonts!” as one of the game’s features. How awesome is that?
Excerpt: History does have a tendency to repeat itself, what was once old is new again. Leggings, velour, disco – it’s all been around before and has come back with a vengeance at some point or another.
