** 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.

** 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.

*** 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.

** Even though Yahtzee HatesEveryoneEqually, he shows a clear preference for insulting Britain (his homeland), Australia (his current residence), and the United States (because he can get so much material from {{Eagleland}}, Boorish Flavor).

** ''Anything'' Japanese, especially anime and [[EasternRPG JRPGs]]. People who enjoy them to any degree are also unfailingly stereotyped as fat, virginal nerds who [[ADateWithRosiePalms pleasure themselves]] to the female characters. His new Hatfall game even contains an easter egg that, while host to some original jokes unrelated to Japan, is still set up as a massive TakeThat against [[VisualNovel visual novels]] and those who play them.
** By extension of George Lucas, Star Wars never receives any kind words from Yahtzee (He even claimed ''Empire'', ''A New Hope'' [[SelfservingMemory (at first)]] and the original ''KOTOR'' are the only good things from it in his ''Force Unleashed 2'' review, labelling the acclaimed ''Super Star Wars'' games as crap while proclaiming his hate for the series and its fans) to the point of going into BiasSteamroller. His Extra Punctuation article "Why Exactly Do We Care About Star Wars" is rather blatant in this regard.

* HypeBacklash: Subverting this trope is basically Yahtzee's self-professed goal with his yearly E3 reviews. This is subjective because he's a) a thorough misanthrope, and b) has a specific and deceptively simple set of standards for what he considers a good game (variation by genre; [=JRPGs=] don't count because he despises them on principle), and which few games have ever legitimately achieved. He repeatedly warns against E3 game trailers that rely on pre-rendered cinematics with no significant length of actual game-play footage, sighting this as a red flag that there's something wrong with the game-play that the developers "don't want us to see". He pointed this out for the recent ''Metal Gear Solid'' release when the developer rep actually ''fast-forwarded'' through game-play footage of the fast travel system because it was boring. He also despised the hype over the next-gen consoles because they were, in his opinion, overhyped, overpriced social networking platforms that alienate the player and undermine gaming history with console exclusives and the omission of backwards-compatibility (at least until Microsoft started offering it in 2015).

** Not that Yahtzee himself isn't subject to this trope, thanks in part to how well known he is and the reactions of his MisaimedFandom.



** Yahtzee apparently has a long-standing fear of theme park mascots, which he's previously let known in [[http://www.fullyramblomatic.com/features/travel his old blog]], that he conquered playing ''EpicMickey''. This was not helped during a trip to Disneyland, especially with the parade.

--> ''SpecOpsTheLine'' is one of those pleasant surprises that comes along every now and again, a video game story that really got to me, giving me genuine feelings of weariness, guilt, and actual physical sickness. [[SarcasmMode Fun, fun, fun!]]

** . He also gave high praise to {{VideoGame/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.

** His attempt at picking apart the Scarecrow's plot in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' feels like it left out some details. He questions why the Scarecrow gave Gotham advance notice of the gas attack, prompting almost everyone to leave the town, supposedly rendering the gas attack useless. What Yahtzee leaves out is the fact that the evacuation of the town was so that Scarecrow could have less resistance when taking over Ace Chemicals to manufacture and release the gas, which he was planning to use across the entire coastline, not just Gotham.
