* Tropers/{{cricri3007}}: His ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3'' review, for not mentioning you can play as a female PlayerCharacter. When a part of the marketing was built around finally playing as a woman in a Call Of Duty game, he should have at the very least mentioned it as a possibility, even if just for complaining about [[TheyJustDidntCare some of the issues with the female PC writing]]. Doubly so since he talked about the Nightmare mode (playable only with a female PC) but didn't said a word about it. That little thing made me lose all respect I had for him as a professional critic.

* Marioking98341: Beginning of his DayZ review, when he instantly shot down New Super Mario Bros. 2 without giving it a fair chance, and to boot, he actually attempted to state that he wasn't biased against Nintendo in a earlier review. This isn't helping your case out Yahtzee.
* Tropers/CerotechOmega: Yahtzee's handling of E3 2014 was kind of lame in and of itself, but his vitriol against (surprise, surprise) Nintendo shows that his hay parachute has fallen apart, and he's grasping at individual straws just to save face. His primary constituents are that Nintendo wanks the Mario and Zelda franchises relentlessly, whilst the majority of the show was taken by stellar entries like ''VideoGame/CodeNameSteam'', ''VideoGame/Splatoon'', ''VideoGame/YoshisWoollyWorld'', ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', and more, with only ''Splatoon'' getting a bare mention by him; he complains about the overload of cinematic cutscenes with nary a demo, whereas the latter was the entirety of Nintendo's performance, with every automated sequence being in-engine; and he omits the Treehouse completely, where the fans got to see more of these lovely games in action. Bad enough on its own, but when added to his history of anti-Nintendo sentiment, it paints a very ugly picture on how much of a hypocrite he's become. Ben Croshaw, do the world a favor and slice the "professional" out of your "professional troll" title if this is how you're going to be.

* Tropers/DragonQuestZ: The ''Madworld'' video dug a hole of unnecessary, and worse unfunny[[note]]In the sense that it's getting old and tired[[/note]], dickishness about Creator/{{Nintendo}} that he hasn't gotten out of, and is now just using Wii hate as filler now instead of honest, yet snarky, criticism.
** Tropers/JustThatGuy: What bugs me about his ''VideoGame/MadWorld'' review is the SoylentGreen "The Wii is made of poo!" rant at the very beginning.
* Tropers/AnsemPaul: He claims to have played ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter Tri'' for 10 hours, saying that the tutorial was 10 hours long. His comments quickly review that the tutorial is FORTY FIVE MINUTES LONG, and an hour and a half if you're very slow. If he had played it properly and hated it, he could have probably made a funnier review where he actually bashes the game for what it does wrong.
* Tropers/{{Larfleeze}}: While his vocal hatred of all things American has always been pathetic and unnecessary his ''VideoGame/SplinterCell Conviction'' review just took it to a whole new stupid level. Not only does he insult the country and the people who live there, but asks why anyone would want to take over America. Why? It's one of the most powerful countries in the world, and is the basis of global economy!
* Tropers/{{Clockwork Ninja}}: Yahtzee's review of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' had shown several points that were just plain false such as him complaining that the weapons path don't branch out and that no major characters die.
* Tropers/{{Plasma}}: His ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' review. There's a lot more off points in it, but most particularly is the point where he called the game a button-masher. Even aside from that most of the moves in the game have a unique mechanic and - compared to other fighting games - normally have a slow animation time, the fact that the game only uses two buttons for fighting with and no combos should tell you that he's completely off the ball on this review. Especially bad when he says anyone who complained about his review is a Nintendo fanboy afterwards!
** Tropers/{{Quarma}}: He claims that it's impossible to defeat anyone better than you, but also claims that you will lose to any spaz who button mashes. What happens if you buttonmash like a spaz when you fight someone better than you?
** Tropers/{{Godhumanmonster}}: While Plasma touched upon it above, I really feel the need to point out the narcissism of the [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/37-Mailbag-Showdown Mailbag Showdown]], which existed solely to insult anyone who took offense at the ''Brawl'' review. Ironically, considering the video wasn't about games or game-related issues but the negative responses to his opinion, the whole segment made Yahtzee come across as petty and insecure as the people he was insulting.
* Tropers/{{AverageJohn}}: The ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy 2'' review. The worse part is that he basically avoids talking about the game, basically refusing to go over any aspects of it whatsoever.
** Tropers/{{Pumbelo}}: The reason that review is a DMOS for me isn't because he attacks Mario fans for wanting a new Mario Game, but because he declares every Mario fan in the world to be pathetic, socially awkward losers who never get laid ''because they like Mario games even if they don't evolve''.
* Tropers/{{Swmystery}}: His ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' review. About halfway through he abandons talking about the game completely in order to filibuster about what the Final Fantasy series has become and devotes no time at all to any of the game's more redeeming features, thus making him sorely guilty of bias.
** Tropers/MainMainJ: For me the worst part was that he ''had'' to know there was no way he was going to play that game to completion, yet he handed in a half-assed review of the game ANYWAY, just to piss off the fanboys.
* Tropers/{{Robbie}}: His review of (the Wii version of) ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', yet another rant about the Wii and its graphical inferiority to the PS3 and 360. When he announced he bought the Wii version, and went on to do his usual anti-Nintendo screed, I felt cheated and disappointed, more so than being offended as a life long Nintendo fan.
** Tropers/{{PaulDouglas}}: For this Troper, the more specific DMOS was the sequence where he described seeing the PS3/Xbox 360 version of the game and went on to baldly imply that it was immeasurably superior in every way - not just in graphics, but he makes this assertion seemingly without actually playing the PS3/Xbox 360 version at all.
* Tropers/{{HT_Black}}: The ''Split/Second'' review itself wasn't particularly bad...but that one line about eating a poor woman's fetus made this troper's stomach turn. It was, to put it simply, unbelievably frikkin' disgusting; hell, it would've made the Angry Video Game Nerd feel a bit ill.
* Tropers/{{Mokyn}}: When he announced the winners for a contest he'd held, to see if anyone could make a Zero Punctation type game. He pretty much just insults everyone who entered, saying that even the winners made crap. His tone isn't even a sort of "Oh, but you know I'm kidding," type of tone. He just insults his fans and doesn't care.
* Tropers/{{P2theSnake}}: I'm gonna go with his E3 2010 video - the dethroning moment is how he considers the new Donkey Kong Country and a new Kid Icarus as rehashed games doomed from the start. Hasn't it been about two decades since the last Kid Icarus?
* Tropers/SpaceSwine: His Sonic Unleashed Review, combining the worst traits of both the Sonic Fandoms' nigh-omnimalicious arrogance and His usual style of more spiteful than funny, Ben had somehow found a way to cross the line THRICE.
** [=InTheGallbladder=]: He made it clear early on that he only likes the earlier Sonic games and that he never sought out to be fair, but that being said, he was completely uncompromising. He has [[ThemeParkVersion some]] [[TheScrappy valid]] [[PressXToNotDie criticisms]], but they're drowned out by [[VideoGame/GodOfWar plugs]], insults, [[MCEscher overblown]] [[VideoGame/KaizoMarioWorld comparisons]], ridiculous claims, and [[VideoGameLives complaints made just]] [[GameplayGrading for complaining's sake]]. The only compliments he gives it are completely backhanded. The review culminates in him calling anyone who might like the game a hermit with a severe NostalgiaFilter, saying in no uncertain terms that the franchise had nowhere to go and vitriolically calling for its retirement. I know better than to come to Yahtzee for his opinions, but it seems that's all this is--a soapbox rant over a franchise he personally doesn't like.
* Tropers/{{SickBritKid}}: For this troper, it was the beginning of his ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' review. After bitching about how "worthless" America was in his Splinter Cell: Conviction review, Yahtzee then used the first few minutes of his ''Black Ops'' review to compare America to Twitards because of all of the jingoistic war games based on a hypothetical America-being-invaded-by-Russia scenario.
** Tropers/{{SG_Man_Forever}}: Seconded, but in a different way. There's also the detail he apparently forgot: America is at war with Afghanistan, and the majority of the population considers this to be a very bad thing, and wants the war to end as soon as humanly possible. War hungry, my ass.
* Tropers/{{Darkurai}}: The beginning of Yahtzee's iPod Games review really did it for me. He said that he was going to review ''VideoGame/SonicColors'' originally, and that it looked promising for starting off with gameplay and not story, but he stopped playing when it turned out to have story. ''Sonic Colors'' has the least story out of any Sonic game in years.
** Tropers/{{SergeantLuke}}: Not to mention he's explicitly stated, several times, that he ''prefers'' games with stories.
* Tropers/{{theLibrarian}}: His rant against ''Franchise/StarWars'' fans in the beginning of his review for ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'' II. While it's true that the franchise is apparently being milked for all it's worth, him saying that SW fans fail at life and won't admit that a lot of stuff in the franchise is crap is completely uncalled for. Just because Yahtzee thinks that ItsPopularNowItSucks doesn't mean that he can insult the fanbase. Don't hate the player, hate the game.
* Tropers/{{Tidalwave11}}: It really seems like Yahtzee was trying to force himself to hate ''VideoGame/DeadSpace 2'' during its review, considering how he disliked the original, to the point of it being painful to watch. He never makes a single conclusion to what he thinks of the game. ''Not a single one''.
* Tropers/{{RiL}}: The entirety of his blisteringly misogynistic ''VideoGame/TheSims 3'' review, chiefly the part where he actually ''unironically'' uses that tired old chestnut of how girl gamers only play The Sims.
* Tropers/{{Raxis}}: Yahtzee's Minecraft review was actually very good and managed to be funny without insulting the hell out of the game for once, except for the first part, where he chose to take yet ANOTHER dig at America for no particular reason. There wasn't even anything in the context of the game to bring it up!
** Tropers/{{MosquitoMan}}: Again in the very next review for ''A Shadow's Tale'', where he opened up mocking all the different regions that get games, but specifically [[PrecisionFStrike calling America out]] for the title difference, which in itself wasn't that bad, but when all the previous xenophobia is added, it really starts making him look like a jerk.
* Tropers/{{VinLAURiA}}: His review on ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising.'' The game does a lot of things that he has claimed in the past that games ''should'' do, but he ignores those here and spends the entire review bashing a control scheme that's completely customizable. He makes it clear he's doing it because it's a Nintendo game because he opens the review trying to justify himself for that and in the follow-up ''Extra Punctuation'' column, he merely insults people for calling him out on it - even going so far as to call them "butthurt" while not talking about the actual game at all. What's really aggravating is that this was a game designed to ''need'' the 3D, but he plays the entire game with 3D off and then [[InsaneTrollLogic complains that it looks too cluttered while simultaneously dismissing the 3D as a useless gimmick]] like he usually does.
** Tropers/BlueGuy: Agreed. All the faults above are very true, but it's only compounded by [[CriticalResearchFailure minor research failure]] (he implies there was only one ''Kid Icarus'' game before ''Uprising'', completely ignoring ''Of Myths and Monsters''), and then he chides Nintendo for not thinking of a better villain from Greek mythology.
* Tropers/{{Marioking98341}}: Beginning of his ''VideoGame/DayZ'' review, when he instantly shot down ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros2'' without giving it a fair chance, and to boot, he actually attempted to state that he wasn't biased against Nintendo in a earlier review. This isn't helping your case out Yahtzee.
* Tropers/{{Serialkillerwhale}}: ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' Review Calling the "Grats" to an award thing rude. Hey, if it's a new guy, he actually just did something that probably took some time, You say grats because it's Common freaking courtesy, Common courtesy being that if you got an achievement for winning a lottery you didn't freaking enter he gets grats for his minimal effort because that beats NO EFFORT. Did you camp out waiting for deathwing to come raze your face? NO! You got lucky and think it's more than someone getting to level 10 and unlocking specializations? Congratu-F***ing-Lations you have an elitism problem!
* Tropers/{{Criticanon}}: I'd like to add ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}''. The way yahtzee complains about how everything looks "Too clean and too bright." ...Are you kidding me!? Yahtzee, for years now you've hated on games that overused the [[RealIsBrown brown spectrum]], and here comes ''Halo 4'' with some really pretty and colorful artwork and your going to fault it for that? Sorry, no. You are now coming off as contrarian just so you can keep your massive following of people that hate Halo.

Sorry, no. You are now coming off as contrarian just so you can keep your massive following of people that hate Halo.

** Tropers/JustThatGuy: What bugs me about his ''MadWorld'' review is the SoylentGreen "The Wii is made of poo!" rant at the very beginning.
* Tropers/AnsemPaul: He claims to have played ''MonsterHunterTri'' for 10 hours, saying that the tutorial was 10 hours long. His comments quickly review that the tutorial is FORTY FIVE MINUTES LONG, and an hour and a half if you're very slow. If he had played it properly and hated it, he could have probably made a funnier review where he actually bashes the game for what it does wrong.
* Tropers/{{Larfleeze}}: While his vocal hatred of all things American has always been pathetic and unnecessary his ''SplinterCell Conviction'' review just took it to a whole new stupid level. Not only does he insult the country and the people who live there, but asks why anyone would want to take over America. Why? It's one of the most powerful countries in the world, and is the basis of global economy!

* Tropers/{{Plasma}}: His ''Super Smash Bros Brawl'' review. There's a lot more off points in it, but most particularly is the point where he called the game a button-masher. Even aside from that most of the moves in the game have a unique mechanic and - compared to other fighting games - normally have a slow animation time, the fact that the game only uses two buttons for fighting with and no combos should tell you that he's completely off the ball on this review. Especially bad when he says anyone who complained about his review is a Nintendo fanboy afterwards!

* Tropers/{{AverageJohn}}: The ''Super Mario Galaxy 2'' review. The worse part is that he basically avoids talking about the game, basically refusing to go over any aspects of it whatsoever.

* Tropers/{{Swmystery}}: His ''Final Fantasy XIII'' review. About halfway through he abandons talking about the game completely in order to filibuster about what the Final Fantasy series has become and devotes no time at all to any of the game's more redeeming features, thus making him sorely guilty of bias.

* Tropers/{{Robbie}}: His review of (the Wii version of) TheForceUnleashed, yet another rant about the Wii and its graphical inferiority to the PS3 and 360. When he announced he bought the Wii version, and went on to do his usual anti-Nintendo screed, I felt cheated and disappointed, more so than being offended as a life long Nintendo fan.

* Tropers/{{SickBritKid}}: For this troper, it was the beginning of his BlackOps review. After bitching about how "worthless" America was in his Splinter Cell: Conviction review, Yahtzee then used the first few minutes of his Call of Duty: Black Ops review to compare America to Twitards because of all of the jingoistic war games based on a hypothetical America-being-invaded-by-Russia scenario.

* Tropers/{{theLibrarian}}: His rant against ''StarWars'' fans in the beginning of his review for ''TheForceUnleashed'' II. While it's true that the franchise is apparently being milked for all it's worth, him saying that SW fans fail at life and won't admit that a lot of stuff in the franchise is crap is completely uncalled for. Just because Yahtzee thinks that ItsPopularNowItSucks doesn't mean that he can insult the fanbase. Don't hate the player, hate the game.
* Tropers/{{Tidalwave11}}: It really seems like Yahtzee was trying to force himself to hate {{Dead Space 2}} during its review, considering how he disliked the original, to the point of it being painful to watch. He never makes a single conclusion to what he thinks of the game. ''Not a single one''.
* Tropers/{{RiL}}: The entirety of his blisteringly misogynistic [[TheSims Sims 3]] review, chiefly the part where he actually ''unironically'' uses that tired old chestnut of how girl gamers only play The Sims.

* Tropers/{{Marioking98341}}: Beginning of his DayZ review, when he instantly shot down NewSuperMarioBros2 without giving it a fair chance, and to boot, he actually attempted to state that he wasn't biased against Nintendo in a earlier review. This isn't helping your case out Yahtzee.
* Tropers/{{Serialkillerwhale}}: World Of Warcraft Review Calling the "Grats" to an award thing rude. Hey, if it's a new guy, he actually just did something that probably took some time, You say grats because it's Common freaking courtesy, Common courtesy being that if you got an achievement for winning a lottery you didn't freaking enter he gets grats for his minimal effort because that beats NO EFFORT. Did you camp out waiting for deathwing to come raze your face? NO! You got lucky and think it's more than someone getting to level 10 and unlocking specializations? Congratu-F***ing-Lations you have an elitism problem!
