* StoppedCaring: Discussed in the "Enjoy The Silence, Feel The Noise" episode where Jim notes how consumers and gaming media becoming more apathetic is the very reason why publishers get away with shenanigans like on disc DLC and microtransactions. Jim believes that publishers bank on people giving up and stop caring about such issues so that the publishers can continue to screw people over and they also rely on people becoming aggressively apathetic where they tell people like Jim that keep complaining to [[ComplainingAboutComplaining stop whining]].

** Jim admits to feeling this way in "Konami is Konami" where he nearly stopped caring about Konami constantly screwing up and killing their franchises because if Konami doesn't care, then he believes he has little reason to care either.

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Jim makes it clear he is not funneling the money from his Patreon to write a novel, the novel is not about Corey Feldman's bus pass coming to life and falling in love with him, and it is not called "Romancing the Bus Pass". It doesn't even have a publisher. He also does it in another video, this time about an accusation that he's been buying rare exotic black market cheeses (and name drops a french dealer as a hypothetical, allegedly rhetorical example and then adds that said person doesn't work on tuesdays); he's later seen eating cheese.
** Subverted in his video "Konami Takes The PES, Armors The Horse, And Needs To Fuck Off", where he denies the claim that he's been buying Pogs using his Patreon money, and then said that even if he was, he certainly wasn't engaging in "semi-sexual, ritualistic worship of said Pogs. [[LampshadeHanging That's a]] ''[[LampshadeHanging very]]'' [[LampshadeHanging specific, and steeeeeupid, allegation!]]". Jim then ''immediately'' puts on a ritual mask and begins having sex with his collection of Pogs.

We're given no evidence that the Pogs [[ExactWords were purchased with his Patron money]].

--> ''When the Jimquisition first debuted on the Escapist, the initial response was [[{{Understatement}} spirited]]. "Who is this [[GeekPhysiques fat douche]]?" "Is he [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on drugs]]?" "How can we get rid of him?" "He's like MovieBob, but shit." "I can't believe the Escapist got rid of LisaFoiles for this guy." "I do hope they cancel him soon."''

* {{Corpsing}}: In [[https://youtu.be/eG1q3X3HxeA?t=705 "Game Over, Randy"]], Jim inadvertently knocks the [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]] figurine off the podium with his [[VideoGame/SaintsRow Dildo Bat]]. He begins laughing and loses his train of thought.

** In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR5TP129_pI The Mighty Has Fallen]]", Jim calls those who watch the show for free (that is, non-Patreon supporters) "fucking parasites" as a joke. He immediately laughs at that comment, claiming he was "goof-bushed" by himself.

* AtLeastIAdmitIt: He feels that if a game developer is going to exclude female protagonists from their games, that they should at least be straight up with it, like Rockstar and Square Enix were for Grand Theft Auto 5 and Final Fantasy XV, instead of coming up with nonsensical excuses like Ubisoft and Nintendo did for Assassin's Creed Unity and The Legend Of Zelda series respectively.



* InsaneTrollLogic: In a conversation with the founder of Digital Homicide, Jim was accused of rallying his audience to attack his games. The 'evidence' of this: a video clip where Jim talks about growing a genetically engineered army with mad science.

** He likens Nintendo's given explanations on why they can't have Zelda as a playable character to him claiming that he wears a red tie because a blue tie would make his opinions less valid.

* ComplexityAddiction: His central thesis about the modern AAA gaming industry is that it's essentially suffering from a bad case of this. For example, in his "How Do You Fuck Up Tetris?" video, he argues that the modern gaming industry is so bloated, unwieldy and obsessed with unnecessary and distracting extraneous features such as DLC, subscription services and proprietary software that they can't even produce an updated version of a simple, workable game like Tetris without turning it into a broken, buggy and overly convoluted mess.
