** Yahztee once made a joke about [[BitingTheHandHumor nobody visiting The Escapist on days besides Wednesdays.]] Now, that joke is a reality; basically all of the site's other talent has left, and aside from ZP, it's dead.

** From his review of ''{{VideoGame/Dark}}'', "TELL ME MORE ABOUT X", mocking the unnatural conversation flow resulting from dialogue trees.

** In his Extra Punctuation column after 2014 where he elaborates on why he won't be reviewing the fourth ''Super Smash Bros'' game, he makes the argument that, "none of the characters in Smash Bros were best known for being melee fighters in their original properties", conveniently ignoring characters like Link, Little Mac, Kirby and Meta Knight, just to name a few. And that's further ignoring the fact that Mario's one-two-punch-kick attack combo is based on when he did the same thing in ''Super Mario 64''.

** In his review of ''VideoGame/Killzone3'' he remarks that the British are depicted are Nazi and criticizes America for it, saying that they were depicting themselves as the heroes. The developers of Killzone 3 are based out of the Netherlands.
** In his LetItDie review he makes the common mistake of attributing development to Suda 51. While Grasshopper Manufacture is Suda's company, he himself had very little involvement in the actual game.
** In his PaperMarioColorSplash review, he says that all the friendly NPCs are Toads, when there's plenty of friendly NPCs that aren't (such as the non-hostile versions of bowser's troops.

** 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.

The USSR really *was* transphobic, a byproduct of trying to have a secular morality by copying Russian Orthodox dogma. It's also really one of the rules you're supposed to enforce in the game.

** "The Glorious PC Gaming Master Race". It was meant as satire (Yahtzee believes PC and console gaming are equally shitty) but it quickly became an AppropriatedAppellation. There's even a subreddit named after it (which, to be fair, is somewhat tongue-in-cheek).

** "The Glorious PC Gaming Master Race". It originally appeared in his review for the first ''Witcher'' game as part of a gag about it's interface being unnecessarily clunky and thus impossible to port. It was meant as satire (Yahtzee believes PC and console gaming are equally shitty) but it quickly became an AppropriatedAppellation. There's even a subreddit named after it (which, to be fair, is somewhat tongue-in-cheek).

** Despite this, outside of Zero Punctuation he's a bit more lukewarm towards Japanese media, and in episodes of The Ego Review he's cited certain anime as inspiration.

** On a more meta level: the jokes about Yahtzee [[FaceOfTheBand being the only contributor of The Escapist]] are now reality, as most other contributors, like [[WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} Jim Sterling]], jumped ship.

*** He later wrote an Extra Punctuation article addressing concerns over its use, deciding that it's one of the most effective ways to say TakeThat to the Third Reich - using a term they coined in such a spurious and (generally) joking manner completely deflates what the Nazis were hoping to achieve.

** Actually acknowledged in his [[VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn Horizon:Zero Dawn]] review. He knew that he'd be harder on it/sound more bored about it than he should; but that's because after going through [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of The Wild]], he's kinda burned out on the genre for the moment.
