YMMV: Game Chap

  • Alternate Character Interpretation:
  • Broken Base:
  • Dude, Not Funny!: For a time, a few of their jokes had incited accusations of racism, sexism and politically incorrect content. This has died down a lot from 2014 onwards, however.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • The duo were this for Yogscast fans even before they joined, given how erratically funny they were in the crossover videos. A good dose of Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass helped this no end, particularly in Crown Conquest.
    • Squiddington himself, owing to his Character Exaggeration over the years.
  • Fandom Rivalry:
    • While initially the duo got on well with the Yogscast and their fandoms did likewise, their eventually rude response to a bit of fan criticism got them kicked out of the Yogscast. Since then, mention one group on the other's forum and you will be met with scorn (or a ban, if you post on Gamechap's). Hat Films in particular have been more vocal with criticism, leading to another rivalry.
    • While initially somewhat popular with the Minecraft community even after their falling out with the Yogscast, this is no longer the case. This is partly due to Gamechap's starting a Twitter war with Marc Watson of Mojang over 500,000 accounts initially being hacked (when in reality that was not the case) and then not crediting an animator for his work on the bunny hopping animation.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: At one point, Gamechap and Bertie made a video regarding Pixelmon which revealed some malicious programming on the part of the mod team, and how they had been subsequently silenced. Come later in 2014, there is a Reddit post about a rather major scandal involving Gamechap's supposed stealing of fan-submitted content and his subsequent silencing of any criticism directed towards him and his past history of doing so. This was enough for large numbers of fans to disown Gamechap altogether.
  • Hell Is That Noise:
    • The "EEEEEEE" scream became this later on. Beware, headphone users.
    • "BUUUUGGGSSSS!!"
    • Bertie's Dalek voice. DEAR NOTCH.
  • Internet Backdraft:
    • See Dude, Not Funny!, although this has died down considerably.
    • While The Yogscast fandom is known as being somewhat volatile, Gamechap caused a smaller one when he insulted them. Better leave it there.
    • Their fans were not pleased when the makers of Pixelmon, a mod for Minecraft, filed a false copyright report on one of Gamechap's videos since they revealed some malicious programming on the part of the mod team.
    • And now, this is directed towards Gamechap, with a rather major scandal involving Gamechap's supposed stealing of fan-submitted content and his subsequent silencing of any criticism directed towards him and his past history of doing so. Gamechap's rather flippant response merely fanned the flames.
    • In general, the Orwellian Editor attitude of Gamechap is rather controversial, partly because of actual criticism being blocked and partly because some of the comments that get users blocked are neither offensive nor critical of their channel. See further posts. This caused a forum boycott and their subscriber numbers have tanked.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Herobrine, as usual. Also, the Nightmare Golem.
    • Herobrine gets MUCH scarier in the 1.3 vid about HIM being removed. At first, it looks like it's just gonna be an ordinary hilarious video about them thinking he's gone, when he's not. Then it switches to HIS point of view; all the sound is echoey, he's breathing hard, and he promptly builds a glow stone E. Then, he starts placing red stone torches. WHILE LETTING OUT A HORRENDOUS SCREAM. Then Game's door opens by itself...
      • The music certainly doesn't help either...
  • Memetic Badass: Bertie, at least when it comes to blowing things up.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Anything in this video gets quoted in the comments of that video.
    • "Boobs, lol"
  • What an Idiot: Any time Bertie gets given Gamechap by TNT. Made acceptable by Rule of Funny.
