* CrossesTheLineTwice - Some of the site's racist or holocaust humor.

* FandomRivalry - Like many caustic young men of strong opinions, they started a lot of fights back in the day. Their absolutely merciless treatment of hate mail was one of the biggest draws to the site, depending on when you found it.

* CatharsisFactor - One of their favorite reasons to like a game. They once wrote that they didn't understand the general infatuation with thinking as recreation as a sign of intelligence, and that they want to play "the action man's ''[[{{Robotron 2084}} Robotron]]'' - a game like ''Robotron'' but with much less thinking."



* EightPointEight - One of Chet's pet peeves was developers throwing tantrums when they received only almost-perfect reviews instead of the perfect 10s they felt entitled to, likening it to a smart girl in high school complaining about getting a B+ on a test. Keep in mind that this was before metacritic and bonuses for review score aggregation.



* GameplayDerailment - All of their "strategy guides" for various games are more about dicking around, trying to get reactions out of the game's characters or other players than actually playing the game.
* ItGetsBetter - Brutally savaged in every review of a game that features it. They were definitely not fans of this idea, stating that since they already do awful work at shitty jobs in order to buy the video game in the first place it's a kind of insult to require them to do more work they don't like to get to the entertainment.
