* SuperlativeDubbing: Fraser, being a ManOfAThousandVoices, likes to dub over the character's lines in games where there are no voiced dialogue. Sometimes this goes surprisingly well. Especially evident when they LP the Phoenix Wright games.

-->'''Ben''': No killing the dogs.
** Likewise, Fraser's refusal to kill the dog Stump in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. Even more awkwardly, when Fraser kills a wolf on a different save, he states that wolves don't count as killing dogs.

* HoYay: Near the end of Fraser's vlog on June 10, 2011, the rest of the gang comes into his home with beer for the hockey game. At about 7:36, With Fraser still talking, Ben comes up from behind him and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jOMAsxJxTk&feature=feedu kisses him on the ear]].
** Ben also takes a lot of opportunities to playfully flirt with Fraser (like in their liveshow of ''Earthbound'') and touch him (reaching into his lap when playing ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', in the ''VideoGame/YouDontKnowJack'' episode when he first comes back), which Fraser seems strangely used too.
*** With Deacon too, In the ''NHL 2011 Playoff'' game Deacon and Ben were dancing quite closely. They also tend to hug each other a lot as well.
*** And again in the Pre Minecon ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' Show.

* TheScrappy: While playing ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'', Duck and Ben are treated with absolute loathing by the gang due to how useless, cruel, or incompetent they are. Fraser continually makes all of his choices based on getting them killed, even though both of them are kids. [[spoiler:By the time Duck dies, he's come to peace with him due to how crappy his situation has gotten. He outright murders Ben, though.]]
** Considering how Ben is indirectly responsible for [[spoiler: Duck's death, Katjaa's death, and the near-death of several others]], some may have felt this justified.
** In VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney, even though they love most of the characters, even the villains, Fraser shows contempt for Angel Starr for being so spiteful against everyone, and Lana Skye for being so adamant about not helping Wright defend her.
*** Fraser also ''lost it'' in regards to Acro, mostly because the game was trying to still painting him as sympathetic after he admitted to wanting to kill a little girl and only killed someone else by mistake. Moe the Clown was likewise despised for being too much of a pain.

** The Silent Hill 2 playthrough was perhaps the biggest controversy in the shows history so far, largely because of ignoring the plot (see above) and unfavourable comparisons to Deadly Premonition (which the team were [[BiasSteamroller much more invested in]]). However, some viewers agreed with much of the gang's criticism and/or saw the massive protests against the gang's mocking of the game as simple fanboyism.

** There are also fans who prefer the recorded 5 to 15-minute shows to the live multi-hour shows, or just want more episodes of AwesomeVideoGames. The "abridged" episodes have since been reintroduced to satisfy those who desire shorter shows.

** The overwhelming mediocrity of ''VideoGame/OneTwoSwitch'' took a visible toll on both Fraser and the chat (by the end of the episode, both parties were begging for it to end). They later did an encore episode in which Kyle, Deacon, and Ben (who were absent for the initial show) got to experience the pain themselves.

** Deacon's {{Mii}} wearing a dog suit in ''WiiMusic'' is even funnier once you factor in Dogkwanda in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' Survival two years later.

* UnwantedAssistance: The Chat occasionally got this reaction from Fraser which lead to the Snarf and Derp system; when this escalated to the point that spoilers were common in the chat, Fraser made the chat for paid members (or Turbos) only during the livestream.
** Ironically, the very first show with a Turbo-only chat featured one of the more infamous moments of chat misinformation: while trying to escape a burning apartment in VideoGame/HeavyRain, the chat told him he was going the wrong way; when he found out he had actually been going the right way after all, he really lost it.
** The SNARF and Derp system has now been stopped because of this very reason. Chat now only gives SNARFs when asked, although chat members are still perfectly free to guess about things in the game they don't know and play along with the crew.
