** While he doesn't feel the humor in ''Portal 2'' is as good as the original, not only does he still feel that the game is hilarious, he also praises it for not delving into TheCakeIsALie meme, which he states the spread of ruined the line for him.

** He gushed about the Orcs in ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar'', bemoaning the fact that the game was about [[TheEeyore Talion]] instead of them, mentioning he loved overhearing a conversation between two orcs that ''carpentry'' was really like fighting when you thought about it.

** Later, in his ''VideoGame/HuntDownTheFreeman'' review, he goes on a rant about the current, rather sorry state of the video game industry (during with he calls Valve out for allowing to Steam be flooded with lazy asset-flips and the AAA publishers for being more interested in making lootbox-laden Skinner boxes), but he makes an aside were he acknowledges that there are still some games out there that are made with "love and artist integrity", using ''A Hat in Time'' as an example.

* There's something adorable about the fact the the "Yahtzee annoys his girlfriend with" and "Yahtzee's girlfriend annoys him with" series of videos are just Yahtzee and his girlfriend Kess playing games that they like while trying to get the other one to like it too.

* In the Capcom 5 video, he noted Resident Evil 4 had been ported to 11 different gaming stations and apparently a toaster; but because it was in his words "fucking sweet!"; going as far as to cite the game as one of the most influential games of the sixth generation and going on well to this day. He rates it as one of the most important games in the medium; a honor he usually reserves for games like ''VideoGame/SilentHill2''; and that's no mean feat to appease someone like him.

--->After all that, there's also a bad ending, if you wantonly murder every single thing in the underworld, and I almost resent the game for having it. After doing such a good job at making me care about the characters, it seems borderline psychotic to include it at all. The fact that it exists means we have to do it if we want to see all the content. But on the other hand, the pacifist ending concludes with the game practically begging you not to delete your save and start again, and completing a genocide run has permanent effects on the game that persist even to ensuing games. So while I may resent the game for including the option of a genocide run, it doesn't seem to be as much as the game would resent ME for doing it.

* While he completely tore VideoGame/NeverDead a new one in its review and eventually ranked it "4th Worst Game of 2012", he did respect its intentions of being a unique experience, even going as far as to defend it to a degree during his top and bottom 5 of 2012 video. He seemed more disappointed in its failings than genuinely angry, which is rare for him.
* In Yahtzee's review of Crysis 2, he mentions liking Alcatraz because he can seem immortal and yet feel very vulnerable due to the wounds sustained at the start of the game, despite him a silent protaganist (As mentioned in his Dishonored review, he usually hates these, but in this case it may be because the game establishes that Alcatraz ''can't'' speak), and got ''really'' pissed off at Prophet for body snatching Alcatraz and completely forgetting about him in the third game, minus a mention in a video for newcomers to the franchise.
* At the end of his ''Dragon Age Origins'' review, he thanks everyone who took part in a [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/games/stonking_great/ contest]] where Escapist fans could make their own Yahtzee themed games.

* His review of ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'', he admits that despite his complaints, even if the game was just "more VideoGame/DarkSouls" and cash grab, he still enjoyed the game despite the faults in it, notably the change in focus to your SilentProtagonist over the world the game is set, stating that he liked learning more about the game's world and preferred it be the focus rather than a SilentProtagonist.

* His review of Bayonetta 2, he deflects criticisms of Bayonetta being a sexually objectified character and goes into details on who he likes for "giving representation" to the demographic of "people who are capable of enjoying themselves", having gotten tired of all the grim and depressing protagonists in gaming.
* His Extra Punctuation column on VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor, where he recounts the tale of an orc he became particularly attached to by the name of Khosh the Drunk, a Mook who had killed him in combat twice before Yahtzee eventually brainwashed him after he fled from a duel, and whom Yahtzee trained and help him climb up the orc hierarchy, eventually having him become a backstabbing bodyguard for one of the enemy Warchiefs. He even admits to feeling "genuinely sad" when Khosh was killed after Yahtzee's ambush on said Warchief went terribly wrong. He ends the article by imagining that there was a [[StarsAreSouls new star in the sky that night]], [[MoodWhiplash albeit a sweaty little green one that drank too much.]]

* Considering how defiantly offensive Yahtzee usually is, his removal of a transphobic joke from the Papers Please review and his apology in a corresponding Extra Punctuation counts as this.

* Yahtzee has a habit of turning a game's title into a RunningGag, by swapping it out for increasingly silly variations (eg ''VideoGame/HomefrontTheRevolution'' becomes ''Homefront: The Refrigerator'', then ''Backyard: The Renovation'', then ''Human: The Resources'', then ''Hurdy: The Gurdy''). But in his review of ''VideoGame/AHatInTime'' he changes it to ''Hatty Time''...then ''continues'' to call it ''Hatty Time'' in order to communicate his affection for the game ("Oh boy, I get to play more ''Hatty Time'' today!").

* His ''"E3 2017"'' video has him at his nicest towards [[PetTheDog Nintendo,]] expressing genuine surprise at Nintendo for their new angle for Super Mario Odyssey (even if it did draw the Sonic 06 parallel, but then again this is something the fans caught onto as well) and even joy at a new Metroid game (once again, even if he does say to exercise extreme optimism as we only got a logo for the game and nothing else, you can hear how excited he is for this game).
