* StockholmSyndrome: Brings this up whenever referring to the [[FanDumb overly-defensive]] fanboys of ''The War Z'', particularly when said defensiveness is juxtaposed around the...questionable approach to the game's release and advertising.

* ClusterFBomb: ** At times when he's streaming, especially during particularly awful/frustrating games (in example: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ask3Dn1ocIQ Let's Not Play: Guise of the Wolf]]).

* CerebusSyndrome: A number of relatively recent commentators on his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zv4dkc9CKWs Super Meat Boy Wipe-A-Thon 3000]] video note that he seems a lot happier in that relatively-early video.
