-->'''Spoony''': Fuck you! Fuck you, game! You don't get to do this! You don't get to hang the fucking Sword of Damocles over the protagonists' heads, [[GoalInLife the main fear that's been driving them onward]] since the beginning of the fucking game, you don't get to do that, and then just HandWave it away by jerking off a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic brony]] and jizzing friendship sparkles all over it! [[TheyJustDidntCare This is such schmaltzy, lazily written, saccharine, childish, Pollyanna bullshit]], I'm amazed [[TastesLikeDiabetes I didn't get diabetes just watching it]]! Yeah, it all comes down to love and friendship. And you know what, I'm sure love and friendship ''can'' overcome the L'Cie curse and bring someone back. And y'know, all those other people who became L'Cie, who left behind friends, and children, and husbands, and families, y'know what? [[BrokenAesop Fuck it.]] [[ShaggyDogStory I guess those people just didn't]] ''[[ShaggyDogStory want]]'' [[ShaggyDogStory it bad enough!]]

** A little earlier, Spoony describes how the Ultima games affected his life. Not only does this underscore his bitterness towards Ultima's downfall, it provides arguments against everyone who claims that video games are worthless. He learned to read, and at an advanced level, from the text of the games. They had deep, moving storylines that affected his tastes in fiction. Finally, they helped him build a relationship with his much older brother, and his biggest memory of his brother is playing Ultima with him. It's a perfect representation of what video games can do, and underscores how big a betrayal Ultima IX was.

* At the end of his crossover review of Transformers 3 with Creator/BradJones, he makes one last ditch effort to reason with the ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars crowd, that this movie could have been so much better, even as a simple summer blockbuster where shit gets blown up, if the story was more stream-lined, more focused on the Autobots, there was no pointless characters and sub-plots, offensive stereotypes, etc.
* Having an item in Torchlight II named after him. Videogame Immortality achieved!
* The vlogs on ''{{Paranormal Activity}} 4'' and ''Sinister'', which are more a video essay on how horror films work, and why jump scares can't carry one.

** Even the music for the ending credits is awesomely appropriate: "The Thing I Hate" by StabbingWestward whose main chrous lyric is the very much appropriate "I won't become the thing I hate!"

* Calling out Spike Games after they dismissed his review of the ''DeadliestWarrior'' game as deluded, and argued the game would have been better if they had a bigger budget. Spoony rubbished their claims about the budget by pointing out that Spike Games is a subsidary of Spike TV, so it was hardly like they were a no-budget indy studio, and that if you get a small budget ''then the smart thing is to make the most of it rather make a cheap cash-in, so that you would receive a larger budget for your next title''.

Added DiffLines:

* In Spoony and April's review of ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 32'', Spoony calls out the insane risk that Shane [=McMahon=] took in diving off the top of the cage onto the Spanish announce table. Besides just being amazed that Shane pulled it off at all, Spoony gives a WhatTheHellHero speech, saying the spot was insane when Wrestling/MickFoley did it in 1998, only now it was even more risky because the cage was even taller. Spoony gets especially mad on how Shane did this in front of his kids, and that if he had missed, Shane would be crippled ''at best''. He also says that the fact the move went off without a hitch is no excuse for planning it in the first place.

--> "Son, we've got a wrestling product that sucks balls, and these balls need to be kicked by men with standards. Who's gonna do it? You? You mouthbreathing Youtube commenters? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for DolphZiggler, and you curse the [[JohnCena Cenation]]. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That burying Ziggler, while tragic, probably saves pay-per-view buys. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves buys! You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at XBox Live parties, you want me on that vlog! You need me on that vlog! We use words like 'Kayfabe,' 'Mark,' 'Workrate'. We use these words as the backbone of a childhood spent loving wrestling. You use them as a punchline! I have neither the time or the inclination to explain myself to a mob who rises and sleeps demanding to know my every opinion on every goddamn thing in the world, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just say 'Thank you', and click on an ad along the way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a camera, and make a blogpost! Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!"

* In his ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' review, Spoony and April both give Tony a serious WhatTheHellHero? speech for the entire movie being his fault.

* During the 2010 charity drive, everyone was asked to name their choice for the greatest animated film of all time. The choice of Spoony, who's stated a few times that he doesn't care that much for anime, even the good ones? ''{{Grave Of The Fireflies}}''.
