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

** The fact that he was one of the ''only'' reviewers to call the game out on its horrific MoralDissonance. Even Gamespot's infamous {{8.8}} review only went so far as to call the violence too extreme. Yahtzee actively called out all the morally heinous and downright horrifying shit Joel and Ellie do throughout the game.

* You've got to admit that it took serious courage for Yahtzee to give TheLastOfUs a negative review instead of praising it like every other reviewer despite knowing the backlash he would receive afterwards.
*** Also worth noting that while he admits the game's intro sequence and story are done well, the latter being something people often praise, he also comments that game's plot is very predictable.
