Cory makes it evident that he adheres to the Christian faith by including Bible verses at the conclusion of most of his videos and making numerous allusions to God throughout his channel.
Cory has become well-known for taking extended periods of time off. Since the first, in 2011, he has taken a total of 11 breaks from the game.
On September 30, 2011, Cory announced that he would take a two-year break, with no new uploads scheduled until July 4, 2013. This is not a well-known hiatus, given his 9-month absence is his most well-known hiatus, and the fact that it occurred while Cory was a very insignificant Youtuber makes it less well-known.
On February 16, 2016, Cory decided to take a two-month break from uploading. During this time period, he was not active on social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, and others. Cory announced his return on April 29, 2016, and a video of the announcement was uploaded on April 30. He expressed his regret for not updating any of his social media accounts, as well as for keeping his supporters in the dark about what was going on in his life.
Two years later, on January 16, 2018, Cory ceased uploading for the second time, but this time for a period of four months. Cory had been away on a trip when he stopped uploading. The next day, May 20, he came to the stage with a live feed in which he said that he was not 100 percent ready, that he was not well-rested, and that he simply wanted to quit.
