* NoSocialSkills: Ben Crosshaw has stated that he is uncomfortable with the idea of interacting with his fans, and frequently asks they not engage him if they discover him in person. This often comes in conflict with his Zero Punctuation personality, which many people assume and expect to be his actual personality. Croshaw has also stressed that while his Zero Punctuation personality is played up for the sake of entertainment, he is "{{not good with people}}".

* AccidentallyAccurate: In his review of ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' he decried the use of procedurally-generated dungeons, comparing it to a book with randomly ordered chapters: "If a book randomly rearranged its chapters with every read, then every chapter would have its characters doing fuck all, because the plot wouldn't make sense otherwise. So the end result will always be a fucking boring book." [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Unfortunates Someone actually did write such a book]], in which the chapters are unbound and can be read in any order, and true enough, nothing much happens in any given chapter. It's open to debate whether the end result is a boring book however.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Ben was requested by fans to review ''VideoGame/{{Homefront}}'' but he declined as he didn't want to review another "right-wing military shooter", though he did address the game in his review of ''VideoGame/HomefrontTheRevolution''.

* ReferencedBy: Bearing (a Men's Rights Activist) used "Purple Monkey" and "Dishwasher" as options in his gameshow-esque lambasting of a real-life StrawFeminist overreacting to being told a joke.
** The episode "Hero Punctuation" of ''WebAnimation/DoraleousAndAssociates'' has the group trying to get hired by "King Yatzee of Meh," who gives scathing critques of each mercenary, with simple cartoon flashcards for visual aid. His guards armor is fashioned to make them look like Imps.

* OneOfUs:
** Obviously considering he's a video game critic, but he's also been known to throw around the sort of terminology you normally only see on ThisVeryWiki (GenreDeconstruction for example). Who knows, he might even be a user.
** He has directly referred to this wiki in his [[LetsPlay/LetsDrownOut Let's Drown Out]] series. However, in the last episode he called tropers "losers with no intention of improving themselves" (paraphrased) so it's possible that he dislikes being considered one.

He has even directly referred to this wiki in his [[LetsPlay/LetsDrownOut Let's Drown Out]] series. However, this part is a bit of a subversion, as in the last episode he called tropers "losers with no intention of improving themselves" (paraphrased) so it's possible that he dislikes being considered one.(paraphrased).
