Fridge: Zero Punctuation

Fridge Brilliance
  • Peteman: I didn't realize this at first but during Yahtzee's Webcomics evisceration, when he tells prospective Webcomic failures about girlfriend templates, he was talking about authors desiring an incestuous relationship with their mothers.
  • The ending of the Zero Punctuation review of Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X features Yahtzee and one of the imps holding up signs featuring It Was His Sled moments. This Troper was confused for a while about why he did that, and then found the point in the middle of the video where he says "I'm going to give away some spoilers, so if you're that bothered, stick your head in a bucket 'till the generic metal starts up." It still took a few moments to get the connection. - Shotgun Ninja
  • In the captions over the end credits to his Silent Hill 2 review, one of the jokes is "There was a critic here. He's gone now." At first it looks like a joking reference to the famous Memetic Mutation line "There was a hole here. It's gone now." from the game itself. But it actually makes a lot of sense in context. Ordinarily, Yahtzee's a critic in the harshest sense of the word, who runs on Accentuate the Negative and puts down games as nastily as possible. For this video, however, the "critic" part of him is gone because he just wants to gush about a game he loves and ignore its faults.
  • Taking his beautiful line note , it shows Yahtzee as a master player, able to breeze through many a games in his path. But should something make him fuck up in where it is hard to do such, he'll lose it. Games like Dark Souls however, show that he prefers a hard challenging game as well note 
  • During his Bioshock 2 review, he claimed that the Quick Time Events improve on the gameplay, stating that "The universe is about to explode". Come Mortal Kombat X, and he hasn't mentioned Quick Time Events in that game. While you think he hasn't noticed, two things confirm that he thought similarly: One is of how he went to do Story mode, and according to his Batman: Arkham Asylum review, that anything he doesn't mention in his reviews is a good part of the game.
  • Yahtzee in particular is a very harsh critic, showing next to no mercy to nearly everything that dares stand in his way. However, strong emotional choices (Spec Ops: The Line) and truthful horror (Silent Hill) can pierce right through him like a javelin and make him show his sensitive side, which can throw many a watcher off. However, he will back away if the emotional choice is not strong enough (Ori And The Blind Forest and Mortal Kombat X) or if the horror strikes him too hard (Five Nights at Freddy's).
