* BerserkButton: Do NOT say "Shut up and play the game already!" in Max's chatroom. At best, you're getting a ten minute time-out from one of the moderators; if Max himself catches you, you're getting perma-banned. You have been warned.

* BerserkButton: Do NOT say Max enjoys having a social stream where he can talk to both his friends and the chatroom while gaming[[note]]In fact he's said that part of the reason he likes playing non-fighting games like ''Monster Hunter'' is because they actually give him the opportunity to interact with the audience[[/note]]; however, this tends to attract complainers who whine "Shut up and play the game already!" in Max's chatroom. At best, already!". If a moderator catches you saying that, you'll get a 10-minute timeout, but if Max himself sees it you're getting a ten minute time-out from one of perma-banned on the moderators; if Max himself catches you, you're getting perma-banned.spot.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is Max's all-time favorite video game, so he was understandably moved to tears when Yoshinori Kitase, the director of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIIRemake'', asked him for a picture and revealed that the development team used his reaction to the reveal trailer as inspiration whenever they were feeling down.


* ButtMonkey: Steve gets a lot of playful abuse from both the guys and the stream chat (who refer to him as "Steeb"). Popular targets include him "ducking"[[note]]running away from challenges or [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere bailing]] when things don't go his way[[/note]], his love of [[Franchise/MortalKombat Sheeva]], and his fervent insistence that [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu and Chun Li]] are an OfficialCouple. It's all in good fun though.

Added DiffLines:

* NoYou: Kenny tends to lapse into this when he's upset, even if it makes absolutely no sense. For example, while playing ''Overcooked'':
-->'''Max:''' Kenny, the meat's on fire!\\
'''Kenny:''' ''You're'' on fire!

Added DiffLines:

* {{Troll}}: Another RunningGag is Max trying to weed out disruptive people in the chatroom by saying deliberately provocative things about something popular; ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosMelee'' is a recurring target, with Max saying it's not a real fighting game and that people who play it dosn't shower. This usually includes a moment where Max {{Stage Whisper}}s into the microphone "I'm trying to get rid of the twelve-year-olds, chatroom!"
** All of the guys (but especially Simmons) love trolling anime fans by talking shit about modern shows and trends like {{Moe}}. That said, they were all anime fans in the past[[note]]Their tastes tended to run towards stuff popular in the late 90s and early 2000s like ''Anime/NinjaScroll''[[/note]], there are indications that they like more of modern anime than they let on (Max seems to have more than a passing knowledge of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', while Kenny is a fan of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' and ''WebComic/OnePunchMan'' and tried to get Steve to watch ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'').


Added DiffLines:

* VitriolicBestBuds: In a strange sense, Max has this relationship with his regular chat audience: He regularly makes fun of them (often acting like an abusive father), and they try to troll him right back. However, Max also makes it clear how much he appreciates his audience for being great people, saying that he's proud to have one of if not THE best chatroom on all of Twitch, and obviously the viewers wouldn't be there if they didn't enjoy Max's content and personality.


Yo Videogames is the alternate channel of [[LetsPlay/TheOnlineWarrior Maximilian Christiansen]] (aka "[[https://www.youtube.com/user/Miles923 Miles923]]") created November 24, 2011, dedicated to playthroughs of video games that aren't of the Fighting variety. Usually accompanied by Dr. Doom's actor for ''WebVideo/AssistMe'' Matthew Simmons (Although there may be more people or just Max on his own), Max goes through various videogames, either by playing them himself or by coaching someone else (usually Simmons). When it comes to livestreaming (which happens on Max's channel on most weekends), Max and Simmons are usually joined by their friends Kenny O'Brian and Steve Springer. In 2017 Max's wife Jessica started a cooking channel dubbed "[[https://www.twitch.tv/jae_benny PB & JaeJae]]", where she's joined by guest chefs like Max's sister Tess or (on Mother's Day) by Max's mother.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Went through a few major changes in terms of the content he produced:
** His earliest content was actually raw camera footage of himself playing games like ''3rd Strike'' and ''Modern Warfare'', and did a lot of content for ''Call of Duty'' games at the same time he did the initial episodes of ''Assist Me''. For a spell after becoming more popular, he had very early Let's Plays on his main channel instead of Yo Videogames!, which he wouldn't create until 2012. From that point on, he kept his main channel to covering fighting game news and such while leaving [=LPs=] and one-offs on Yo Videogames!, where he would collaborate more with Simmons.
** His first year running Yo Videogames had most of his Let's Plays and such recorded in advance. By the time his playthrough of ''Donkey Kong Country Returns'' had to be delayed due to equipment issues, he began livestreaming on Twitch instead. By 2014, Max would produce almost all of his content on Twitch, with stream archives being distributed between both channels. It was by this point his friends and wife would become more active participants by showing up on occasion during the weekend streams.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Most of the games in Max's catalogue have yet to see the end. Granted, Max's library is HUGE.

* AnimalMotifs: If Tokyo Jungle is anything to go by, dogs (Pomeranians, to be precise) for Max, Saber-toothed tigers for Matt.

* AnimalMotifs: If Tokyo Jungle AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: PlayedForLaughs; Max pronounces [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife]]'s LimitBreak Meteorain as "Meaty-Orean" rather than "Meteo-Rain", but insists that he's right and everyone else is anything to go by, dogs (Pomeranians, to be precise) for Max, Saber-toothed tigers for Matt.wrong.

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: PlayedForLaughs; Max and co. will often claim they are experts in things that they clearly have no interest or understanding of. This is most often seen when they are faced with a reference to Japanese anime or games. Even when the chat tries to correct them they'll ignore it and claim they are right.

* GamerChick: Max's wife, Jessica, is this to some regard. She isn't much of a hardcore gamer, but sometimes joins her husband in some of his Let's Plays. Notably, she made a full playthrough of VideoGame/NiNoKuni with Max (both are big Creator/StudioGhibli fans) and participates in rounds of VideoGame/SuperSmashBros with Max and Matt. She's also very good at puzzle games, to the point where '''she''' was the boss of their ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' Boss Rage video. There's also Max's sister Tess (X-23 from WebVideo/AssistMe), who is an avid VideoGame/CrazyTaxi fan, but is only well-versed in games she and Max have played together growing up, like VideoGame/SuperMarioBros.

There's also the fact that not only did Max get Jessica into ''VideoGame/MonsterHunterWorld'', but she ended up playing it even more than him (though the fact that Max had to stop for a while to cover new fighting games did slow him down a bit).

to:

* ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' (All 4 games and ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'')


* EntertaininglyWrong: Something of a RunningGag. Whenever the guys come across a reference to something, especially to an anime or other Japanese property, they intentionally claim it's from something completely different just to get a rise out of any fans in the chat. This is best seen whenever viewing user created content such as the Create a Soul's from ''VideoGame/SoulCaliburVI'' where such things are abundant.

** Max and [[WebVideo/TheCompletionist Jirard Khalil]] are friends as well, and will occasionally pop into each others' Twitch streams in order to donate large amounts of money for gift subs.

Added DiffLines:

** The animated intro ends with a sequence based off of the opening to ''Anime/YuYuHakusho'', with the doods falling towards the camera and ending when the main character (Yusuke/Max) points at the viewer.


* FreakOut: PlayedForLaughs; when the guys were playing ''VideoGame/SoulCaliburVI'' and browsing through other peoples' [[CharacterCustomization custom characters]], they found a Maximilian. [[https://clips.twitch.tv/WonderfulTardyWrenGivePLZ Max runs from the room screaming]].

Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: Max will occasionally make fun of the videos he made back before he hit it big. He especially loves mocking his old ''Call of Duty'' instructional videos past where he just narrated over gameplay in a very dry, analytical manner, calling his younger self an "asshole" and saying that nobody should listen to someone who sounds that bored when he plays a game.
