YMMV / RT Game

Go To

  • Crosses the Line Twice: Anytime Daniel terrorizes his city in Cities: Skylines.
    • Also, him rejoicing over the death of Magnus in Minecraft: Story Mode, where he restarted the chapter he was on solely to kill Magnus instead of Ellegaard.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Afraid and Ross Bob from the Bob Family Household series, as they were the only two members of the household to have received Twitch emotes. Additionally, these two, along with Bob Bob, were the only members of the family to return in the series in The Sims 4.

  • Friendly Fandoms: With fellow Irish Youtuber Call Me Kevin, to the point where it's a joke that RTGame and CMK are the same person.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • After seeing Daniel spend many videos destroying cities he created in Cities: Skylines for the lolz, there is something oddly heartwarming about the ending of the "When City Planning in Cities Skylines requires over 600 Blimps" video, where not only does the city not get destroyed from disasters either he or the game itself has created, but it actually manages to thrive, impressing Daniel enough to play Take Me Home, Country Roads while remarking that the music no longer means death, but hope.
      Random Commenter #1: There’s something about a beautiful picture of the city, country roads in the background, and RT saying “just this time, everyone lives” that makes me so happy for some reason.
      Random Commenter #2: It's like the perfect character development.

    • In his episode "When Playing God in The Sims comes to an end" Ross Bob ghost coming back to feed Afraid one last time can be considered this.
      "He's actually the sweetest man alive...even when he's dead, he's the best character in the entire family!"
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks!: His PewDiePie: Legend Of The Bro Fist stream, the near-entirety of which was spent mocking the nonsensical plot and in-jokes, ended up attracting the ire of a good few PewDiePie fans.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • While it was still in development, Daniel genuinely thought that Fallout 76 would be fun to play, and initially played "Take Me Home, Country Roads" in reference to it. The fact that it would later be associated with wide-scale disasters is eerily prophetic of 76's crash-and-burn reception.
    • When playing 60 Seconds!, he subjects the son to the usual "Little Timmy" treatment (see the Running Gag section on the main page), before discovering that his actual in-game name is indeed Timmy.

  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient: He went from around 100,000 to over 1,000,000 subscribers between July and October 2018.
  • Memetic Loser: The Sim named "Jim Carrey", who's based on Truman. Despite RT giving him indefinite free will, he would rather sit at home, eat, stare at gnomes and so on. And when he finally gets invited on a date with Agnes Crumplebottom, he would rather talk to a random stranger instead of his date, and when he does talk to Agnes, his topic of discussion is his shopping list. This has led to RT himself calling him the most boring person imaginable, and inspired jokes comparing Jim to other Straw Loser archetypes.
  • Memetic Mutation:
  • Moment of Awesome: In Terraria, RT and his army of Zachs managing to strike down an Eye of Cthulhu with over 100,000 health.
  • Replacement Scrappy: The iteration of Ross Bob from The Sims 4 was not very well-liked compared to the original, even by Daniel himself. While he was intended to be very similar to the original Ross Bob from The Sims 3, everything about just felt off in comparison. Where the differences were most apparent was in terms of athleticism, where the 3 iteration of Ross Bob snowboarded so much that people feared for his health, while the 4 iteration dropped dead after a few minutes in the gym.
  • Tear Jerker: Ross Bob's deaths in When Playing God in The Sims goes too far. Despite Daniel doing his best to keep Ross alive, he ends up dying every single time from old age. At the end of the video, he decides to just let Ross go after he falls off his snowboard, and forces an age transitionnote , with Emotion playing in the background.
    • When Playing God in The Sims comes to an end. By the end of the video, everyone in the Bob household is dead, Boinky Bob ends up permanently stuck as doll as a result of Bob Bob's death, and social workers come to take away Afraid, NotEpona, and Meteor Horse, who first appeared in the stream the highlights are taken from.
      • Not only this, but due to the sim age settings RT had set, nearly every sim in the entire town had died of old age by this point as well.
  • Vocal Minority: The people who want RT to start playing Team Fortress 2 again. According to him, the requests for TF2 were seemingly present at every release of a non-TF2 stream. They eventually got their wish... in the form of a stream where RT announced this would be his last time playing TF2.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: He very much intends for his Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! and Nintendogs streams to be political, naming his pets "Brexit" in both and repeatedly poking fun at the United Kingdom. Neither games seem to realize such, though, and RT comments during the latter that everyone's just been looking too much into everything.
    Archie Hubbs: [Talking about RT's dog, whose name is Brexit] "But, Ted, do you think Brexit even has a cha—"
    RT: "That's the most political line in the game."

How well does it match the trope?
