** The Silent Hill 2 playthrough was perhaps the biggest BaseBreaker 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.

* 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.

* BrokenBase:
* Making people pay to chat in their stream chat was quite the base breaker years ago. Some people have dealt with it, and others have sworn to never watch their content ever again despite the fact it is a $50 lifetime fee to do so. The reason why they did so was to prevent trolls and such from ruining the experience.

** This is likely averted now. Twitch chat is called the "shadow chat", which allows everybody to chat. Fraiser can see your messages as he has both shadow chat, and turbo chat open. There is much more information on their [[http://videogamesawesome.com/forums/topic/faq/ FAQ]]

* DudeNotFunny: The reaction of some to Fraser and crew's ''extremely'' harsh treatment of Duck in ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead''.
** Much of Fraser's trolling against the Chat or sarcastic teasing of his co-hosts will be given this treatment by some of the Chat.
** Fraser himself has some of these moments in ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' the Wrath of the Lamb show to some of the childhood stories being told (admittedly this is the [[SitcomArchNemesis Ch]][[UnreliableNarrator at]] so whether or not they are true should be taken with a pinch of salt).
** Ben's 'getting into character' as [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Comstock]] during the ''Videogame/BioShockInfinite'' playthrough. Fraser joined in as well.
** More recently another example sprung up when it became clear that some users were experiencing sexual harassment. The mods have made clear (and the community agrees) that this is [[BerserkButton NOT]] funny in any way.
** When unwrapping gifts from fans, someone sent Fraser a Christian book, in the hope to convert him. Which then led to a FunnyAneurysmMoment:
*** Fraser: "I'm an atheist, through and through." *stream dies*

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Their movie night screening of ATalkingCat features them providing one of these for every single character in the film. Susan is an unstable drunk; her entire family want to have sex with each other; Phil is senile; Chris pretends to be awkward at romance in order to get with everyone; and Duffy does everything purely because he likes watching young boys in swimming pools. Please note that A Talking Cat is supposed to be a kids film.



* BrokenBase: Complaints came in by the truckload when the show started to get ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''-heavy (even though Fraser has never abandoned or substantially reduced non-''Minecraft'' content), though many fans now consider these shows to be a VGA staple.

--> Fraser: Remember Becky? If you bring that you don't like something, we'll beat it like a dead horse.
--> Ben: And then we'll fuck it.
