*** Conversely, any AAA game which uses microtransactions is automatically disqualified from his "Best Game of the Year" awards on principle, which kept both ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' and ''VideoGame/DeusExMankindDivided'' out of contention for Game of the Year in 2015 and 2016 respectively despite their 9/10 scores. Jim was [[http://www.thejimquisition.com/mankind-divideds-breach-mode-is-designed-to-divide-you-from-your-money/ particularly torn up]] about the latter, since he absolutely loved the game otherwise.

* CriticalResearchFailure:[[invoked]] PlayedForLaughs in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85fILN_m5pg "I'm Not Saying Emulators Are Cool, BUT..."]]. He says that {{UsefulNotes/Emulation}} is [[TheScottishTrope a taboo subject among AAA companies]], "like [[Franchise/HarryPotter Voldemort]] from that movie ''Series/GameOfThrones''", while showing a picture of [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]].

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: What Jim calls "asset flips," where developers make games entirely out of pre-made assets purchased from the Unity store and resold as an original product. The most extreme examples of this involve entire pre-made ''games'' being resold as original products, with the "[=UnitZ=]" asset pack being the most popular target of such reselling.

* ShootTheMessenger: "Delayed Reaction" was all about Jim's incredulity that some gamers have a tendency to do this for any bad news. As an example, Jim brings up a journalist who broke the news that ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' was delayed by two months got accusations of a conspiracy, questions to his integrity, and even death threats from more rabid "[[FanDumb fans]]". This is despite the game, in Jim's eyes, having a good reason to be delayed: to put all the features on the disc that Square Enix wanted to avoid a large day-one patch.

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: The main gimmick behind Jim's ''[=Itch.io=] Tasty'' series is seeing what strange games he can find on [[https://itch.io/ the titular website]] by putting in a search term related to a recent news story or video game release. Past search terms have included [[VideoGame/NoMansSky Hello]], [[Film/Deadpool2016 Superhero]], [[VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront Star Wars]], [[Creator/DonaldTrump Trump]], [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyInfiniteWarfare Warfare]] and [[UsefulNotes/DavidCameron Pig]].

* StreisandEffect: Discussed in "Corrupt, Censoring, Suicidal Indie Devs", where Jim brings up the attempted removal of reviews and commentaries done by him and [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit Total Biscuit]]. Namely, how attempting to censor negative criticism on the Internet never, ever works, and that any indie publisher who tries it will quickly disappear forever under a counterattack of mass proportions.

** Discusses this every time a developer tries to silence him for criticizing their work. Every time one of Jim's videos gets removed for "copyright infringement", Jim's popularity just increases while the person behind the strike gets bad publicity.

** UnpleasableFanbase: He has called the Zelda fanbase the "Spoiled brats" of video game fandom, since they had Nintendo putting out new ones every couple years that were always well-done.



* StrawmanNewsMedia: His [[TruthInTelevision distressingly accurate]] depiction of the news media as completely uninformed about video games, who react hysterically to any violence or sexuality in a game. Usually, the media operates under the assumption that [[UndeadHorseTrope video games are for kids,]] and therefore anyone who puts violence or sex in a game [[InsaneTrollLogic is trying to market sex and violence to kids.]]

* WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings: While Jim describes himself as a defender of gamers, he is disgusted by the personal threats towards game developers like [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII Jennifer Helper]] and [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 David Vonderhaar]]. The hateful response towards developers will only overshadow legitimate criticism and discourage the industry from being creative.

* EnvironmentalNarrativeGame: He examined the genre in detail [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdHWGMkMorg here]], a quote from which video provides the page quote. He's rather ambivalent towards the genre, pointing out how it can be done well and how it can be done badly, and concluding that the standards ''really'' need to be raised for them because at the moment the majority of them are pretty bad and a lot of reviewers are giving them a free pass simply for being "different" (despite ''VideoGame/DearEsther'' being seven years old at this point and ''VideoGame/TheStanleyParable'', in his opinion, setting the gold standard in 2011).

* ShowWithinAShow: "Virgillio Armarndio's Art Hole," which is also another case of StylisticSuck.
* {{Sidekick}}: Jim has one in the form of Miniature Fantasy Willem Dafoe, who usually yells outrageous things at the top of his voice.
* SincerityMode: In his 100th episode, his satirical "[[AGodAmI thank God for me]]" running gag is changed to the completely sincere "[[GodIsGood I would like to thank God for me]]".
* SigningOffCatchPhrase: "and thank God, for me!" If he doesn't say it, it's usually either for a joke or because he's ''really'' angry. Or doing an InMemoriam episode for a person he respected.
