* Pretty much the entirety of his "Hunt Down the Freeman" video, especially the end where he tears Valve a new asshole for allowing garbage like Hunt Down The Freeman onto Steam to be sold for actual money, which only ends up hurting indie devs who put actual effort into their games as they keep getting buried under crap.



* In March 2018, Yahtzee posted a withering review of HalfLife fan-game "Hunt Down The Freeman", but didn't stop at criticizing the story or development quality; he saved his worst criticisms for Valve (the creators of HalfLife) for letting this infringement of their property be published on Steam with no complaints, rubbing more salt in the wound of fans who have waited years for "Half Life 3" but most likely are not going to get it. He then goes on a rant about how Triple-A games seem intent on no longer providing meaningful experiences, and the ones that do get buried in the Steam store while Valve (once a pioneer in meaningful gameplay experiences) can't be bothered. By the end, Yahtzee sounds genuinely upset and hurt.

* In the [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas "Hot Coffee" controversy]] video, Yahtzee pointing out the reason that MoralGuardians stopped attacking Rockstar and Take Two over their games? There was no money to be made from it from the class action settlement.

-->Now, if you're looking for a balanced and thoughtful critique of the game, then what the fuck are you doing here? I'm basically just going to rail it with the same points as always until it ''cries''. Strap in while I strap ''on'', dear viewer. Now, what's this game all about then; [[RecycledInSpace you play as Link and you have to rescue the princess Zelda?]] ''[[SarcasmMode Wow]]''[[SarcasmMode , across the meadows of fresh ideas you stride like a Colossus]], don't you? Oh, but it's very innovatively invoking "[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast Link to the Past]]" on the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]]; the very same way I very innovatively crawled up my mum's vagina and stuck my thumb in my mouth. [[SpotTheThread I'm going to continue like this for five minutes of your life that you will never get back!]] ... [[WhamLine Have they gone?]] Right; sorry about the subterfuge. By my calculations, the only person still watching will be Creator/{{Nintendo}} itself, ego surfing. [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech And you and me need to have a little talk, man to monstrously large corporation.]]

** And later, in his review of ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', he genuinely appreciated how much the game was a SurprisinglyImprovedSequel to the last game, especially with how he praises all the characters - compared to the 2009 Wolfenstein, where he openly said [[EightDeadlyWords he didn't care what'll happen to the characters]], he pretty much says ALL of the characters in ''The New Order'' were complex characters with all sorts of development, from [[LoveToHate how the Nazis were absolute monsters that the player is WELL motivated to take down]], to even how [[TheHero B.J. Blazkowicz]] was a TragicHero [[IronWoobie constantly on a hairpin's edge from plummeting down a]] DespairEventHorizon... And then, even though he did the limerick for the last game because it was just too boring to review the standard way, [[CallBack he concludes this review with one last little ditty]]:
--> With the Wolfenstein series updated

* Be honest- ''none of us'' expected Yahtzee to be honestly '''excited''' about VideoGame/WatchDogs? Or at least impressed with it, saying that it's a perfect example of how to announce a game- no fucking around with fancy HD trailers, just 10 minutes of straight up gameplay.

* [[BrokenBase Arguably]], his review of ''[[VideoGame/MetroidOtherM Metroid: Other M]]'' is this to it's detractors. Though many critics have gone on about how bad the games is (one lesser-known reviewer made a four-part review spanning about '''''eighty minutes'''''), Yatzee basically and crassly summed up all of their complaints in little over [[UpToEleven five minutes.]] This feat had a fan pledging in the comments section that, when the time comes that Yatzee will insult a game they like, they will forgive him. [[{{GIFT}} Someone on the internet forgiving a critic for criticizing something they like.]]
* His review of ''MetroidPrimeFederationForce'', by far his angriest sounding review to date, where he absolutely thrashes the game for being nothing more then a weak cash in on a popular franchise and takes Nintendo to task for it's continued mistreatment of the franchise.

* Beating GearsOfWar [[FanDumb fan boys]] to the punch by telling them that if he said the plot of GearsOfWar was actually good, they'd trumpet that from the rooftops, but if he said the plot was crap, [[NoPlotNoProblem they'd be howling at him]] "what did you expect in a GearsOfWar game?"
