** A gag (a neon sign on a border guard shack reading "no trannies") from the ''Papers, Please'' review got him in trouble. The USSR really *was* transphobic, a byproduct of trying to have a secular morality by copying Russian Orthodox dogma.

** Yahtzee complains in the ''VideoGame/DeadRising3'' review that zombie viruses are a fairly lousy weapon. This would be a fine point, were it made about a series where that was the point. In the first game, it ''was'' a lousy weapon, but it was being used as a deliberately symbolic act; in the second, [[spoiler: the outbreak is caused to harvest the zombies for a chemical that's used to create the cure]]; and in the third, the outbreak is [[spoiler: a handy excuse to institute martial law, and is part of an unsuccessful scheme to seize power as part of a military coup]].

** One of his primary points of contention over ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' is an argument that once resurrection becomes possible, it lowers the stakes of a given piece of work. The point of the plot, however, is that resurrection ''isn't'' possible, except in one very particular way, and the death of a major character near the end of the story mode takes that method off the table. This is explicitly stated multiple times, rendering Yahtzee's entire line of criticism moot.

** His "''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' vs ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}''" video has him complaining that ''Overwatch'' costs a lot. Except not, in fact Battleborn's initial price was 20 [=USD/Euros=] higher than Overwatch's.

** . He also gave high praise to UnderTale for averting this, being dramatic and genuinely funny in equal measure without either coming across as feeling forced, and using ThePowerOfFriendship in a way that actually worked.
