** 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.

* Yahtzee goes off on political discussions, especially on the Internet, during his review of ''Hatred]'', and it is '''GLORIOUS'''.
---> We live in an age where mass communication has counter-intuitively turned all attempts at verbal debate into a basketball game where the teams are on different courts, and stand around a basket racking up meaningless points and throwing shit over the dividing wall. The only way an individual can safely express their politics these days is to anonymously spend money. [[RealitySubtext Hence why homophobic pizza joints can mysteriously accrue a million dollars in donations.]] [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity Hatred exists merely as a maypole]] [[StreisandEffect for those wishing to defy]] [[MoralGuardians the cultural nannies who want to tell them that they can't have it until they learn to wipe their bottoms properly.]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech So two groups of affluent middle class people annoy each other]], [[RatedMforMoney Hatred makes lots of money]], [[SeriousBusiness and the world at large gives less of a toss than a quadriplegic shot-putter.]] Good night!

* 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.

* [[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.]]

*** Onto that note, Yahtzee's reviews for both VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution and VideoGame/ETTheExtraterrestrial has him being calm. Compare him to AngryJoe, who broke down in rage and WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd who took a [[AngryVideoGameNerdTheMovie movie]] for him to finally review it respectively.

* 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?"
