With over ten years of running Zero Punctuation has had so many funny moments that we had to create several subpages. Check them out here:


    Extra Punctuation 
  • From this Extra Punctuation: "Brink, besides being what a racist caricature of an Oriental person would say is their favourite Doctor Who episode, is also a disappointing game."
  • "I can't speak for everyone, at least not until the device is completed, but..."
  • The implications of Mortal Kombat Vs Mr. Men.
  • From "Why No Couples In Games":
    "Vamp in Metal Gear Solid 2 was implied to be banging Fortune, but only because Vamp was implied to be banging absolutely fucking everyone, including you as you read this. Try to hold still."
  • The conclusion to thinking about why Animal Crossing: New Leaf appeals to players:
    So, from a design perspective, these are the important lessons to take from Animal Crossing: New Leaf, besides of course "Don't play this fucking game, I'm serious, get away before it gets a hold on you, RUN MAN RUN FOR YOUR LIFE"
  • Yahtzee's history with adventure games:
    As anyone who views my Wikipedia page will know, adventure games and I have a history. I was practically raised by them, like Tarzan by the apes, and was only brought to civilization in my late teens to be taught how to stop stealing random useless objects and communicating only with the phrase "That doesn't work."

    Judging By The Cover 

  • The episode descriptions can be this at times.
    "This week on Zero Punctuation, Yahtzee compares Sim City to Nazi Germany."
  • Arguably, Yahtzee's at his best when he can come up with a hypothetical scenario that literalizes a sarcastic remark, as in the above "My right hand on a Sunday night" and "last male panda."
    "As the disbelieving friend said to the inventor of the feces-powered helicopter, "THIS SHIT WON'T FLY!".

    "As the operator of a coin-operated artillery cannon might sarcastically yell to a retreating army, you should never be afraid of change."
    • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon's aesthetic: "The vibrant neon colours on a dark background are kind of like undergoing reconstructive dentistry, in that it can make things hard to make out (slightly tortured simile)."
  • From an advert for the Mogworld audiobooks: "Now you can listen to me talk for thirteen hours without the expense of getting me coked up!"
  • The advert for the Jam audiobooks, originally used in the CoD: Ghosts review.
  • Yahtzee's contribution to Escapist's campaign to get the site a Webby in 2014:
    I think you know what you have to do now: annex the Sudetenland. Oh, sorry, I got that wrong. I meant: Vote for us! Then annex the Sudetenland!
  • If you lower the speed, it makes Yahtzee sound drunk.
  • His end-of-video plug for his 2017 book:
    My new book, Will Save the Galaxy for Food, is out now! It's a sci-fi comedy with all the usual sci-fi comedy themes: redundancy, hopelessness, and existential dread. Available in e-book, paperback, and audiobook from all good retailers and some dodgy ones.
  • The tradition of funny book-plugging continues in early 2018:
    My latest book, Differently Morphous, is out now on as an Audible Original, meaning audiobook first with print version further down the line, so get those ears unstuffed. It's a contemporary paranormal fantasy about the difficulties of adapting to modern life when you're a formless Lovecraftian horror from beyond the veil of time and space.


How well does it match the trope?
