* There's something heartwarming about Yahtzee deciding to give a spot on his usual yearly Top 5 ''Best'' to [[VideoGame/{{Hades}} two]] [[VideoGame/BPMBulletsPerMinute games]] rather than one, with the only other time a game getting a shared spot with another was 2011, where he named ''[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/Battlefield3 Battlefield 3]]'' the worst games of 2011.

* In his review of ''[[VideoGame/{{Shantae}} Shantae and the Seven Sirens]]'', while Yahtzee finds the game mostly middling, he explains in his research that he didn't know that ''Shantae'' was a [[LongRunner long-running series]] and was surprised to discover it had [[Creator/WayForwardTechnologies the same development studio]] all this time. Curious about the context, he decided to play the previous instalment, ''Half-Genie Hero'', and he ends up assessing that "It's not bad at all!" The best part is that he's not even being [[DamnedByFaintPraise backhanded]] about it; he sounds [[SincerityMode genuinely surprised yet pleased by how good it is]], and comes to the conclusion that [=WayForward=] got complacent with ''Seven Sirens'', but are otherwise more talented than he originally took them for.
