* Tropers/DrZulu2010: The IrateGamer's review of ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles''. Each game he reviews can be summed up like this. NES TMNT: when half of his complains are half assed versions of the WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd, the other half of his complains are mainly him playing like an idiot while being CaptainObvious on our butts. TMNT 2 the arcade game: He basically called a good game something bad for no other reason than being a jackass who likes graphics and multiplayer, two thing even the most hardened gamer (including yours truly) called minor gripes outside of gameplay. TMNT 3 The Manhattan Project: he called the game good even if it has most, if not all, of the "flaws" the previous game has. TMNT Turtles In Time: He goes into more accomplishments in research-fail, ignoring that the SNES game was also an arcade port. Then, he goes into FridgeLogic by saying "too bad it's only two player but hey it's a good game so I can forget this." *Headbutts a wall* It was released before his infamous ''VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors'' review, but it was a good reason than anything that the next games he will review can be sums up in four words: ThisIsGonnaSuck.
* Tropers/{{Renelia}}: The IrateGamer's review on ''{{VideoGame/Contra}}''. His tirade about instruction manuals, saying "I can’t waste my time reading about a game, I just gotta play it!" pretty much solidifies himself as a non-gamer. Despite he's "claimed" he's played games for about [[BlatantLies 20 years]], he acts completely surprised when he finds the third stage boss is indeed, an alien. He could have avoided it by just [[ReadTheFreakingManual reading the manual]]. Then he claims the laser is useless, when in fact, it's extremely useful to clear a line of enemies in your way. Super C has him basically saying ItsHardSoItSucks and resorts to cheating to get him past the game. Contra Force has him latching on the idea it's an official Contra game (as in, part of the official Contra canon), yet it's a DolledUpInstallment of a Japanese game called Arc Hound. Contra 3 has him running about acting surprised when he chose the easy mode and [[EasyModeMockery got mocked by the game]]. Even more ridiculous is how he ranted he had to beat the game on hard just to get the game's best ending. [[FlatWhat What.]]

* BackgroundGuy: I was never a fan to start with, but I've followed him closely for awhile regardless - it's the trainwreck effect, I suppose. So I definitely noticed when he quietly put the kebosh on the series for about the umpteenth time in 2016, but this time it seems to be permanent. That would be bad enough, but that's not all - he's tried to be as discreet as possible in shuttering the show as he shifts his attention to ''Puppet Steve'', trying his best to keep people from associating the two with each other. ''Then'' he started using his main channel as a dumping ground for cheap sell-out moves, like his stupid ''Box Wars'' show and horrid tech reviews. If I were a fan, and if nothing else from his very long list of grievances had put me over the edge, this would definitely have been a stab to the heart for me, the one that would have turned me against him.

** Tropes/{{Midna}}: Tampering with the footage at all is a major no-no in any game review, even in a supposedly comedic one, and is only really acceptable when done as a joke. But what sells it for me is that when the part where he gripes about the star comes up, he parks his character in an area with an animated object nearby. Which visibly slows down when he messes with the video. [[TheyJustDidntCare It's almost like he wanted people to notice he was lying.]]

** Bengson26: Also, note on how this review has a three month gap between his previous review (the already-mentioned Aladdin review). So, he had maybe about a month or two, give or take, to play the game but all he completed is the first portion of the game. Talk about [[TheyJustDidntCare not caring]].

* Tropers/MattFisherNL: I would say the Dethroning Moment of Suck for the Irate Gamer has to be his review of ''Yo! Noid''. Granted, there are all kinds of possible moments for me to choose from, and I could agree with what any of you guys have suggested here so far, but I chose this one because it [[DudeNotFunny just wasn't that funny in my opinion]]. The joke about ProductPlacement was drawn out and was not needed, in which Chris Bores pretends to endorse numerous products ([=A&W=], Doritos, and Dr Pepper), and even shows on screen a ticker promoting ''DancingWithTheStars''. It's as {{padd|ing}}ed as Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg. The cutaway at the end with the lemmings following "Evil Bores" in Hell was not funny, either. Not to mention, this is notorious as the first Irate Gamer episode where Chris Bores says [[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma "fustrating"]].

*JEFFWONTLEAVE: The Irate Gamer was one of those people that because of being a over-exposed dead horse that I thought maybe, just maybe, that it would be slightly over exaggerated. And personally speaking, while a good chunk of it was head-inducingly dull, they we’re still watchable attempts at {{CausticCritic}} humor. That being said, during the later years where he started shoving away his fans and trying to jump on the Skylanders/Amiibo bandwagon I did blast him for it. And as such, what was meant to be his [[AuthorsSavingThrow Author Saving Throw]] during this time, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYnM9hexHdA Irate Gamer Finally Opens Up about AVGN and more]] was a colossal fuck up of smug blatant lies which only worked for AVGN's hatedom and nobody else. I could go over multiple examples of how this video was an atrocity, but since I can only do one moment, I’ll highlight his experience with the “OutNerd the Nerd contest” which I was a participant in. 1: He claims that the reason his videos we’re like AVGN’s was because he was doing this contest. Turns out the contest was announced in August 2007, and by that time he had done 7-8 reviews by that time. 2: He claims the winner of the contest, Derek Alexander [[WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd (The Happy Video Game Nerd/Stop Skeletons From Sweating) ]] was absolutely nothing like the nerd. That was not the point of the contest. The main goal of the contest was “Out nerd the nerd” as in showing Your information, trivia and pride of the topic in your videos, while also having some production skills and an engaging personality. Either he just looked at the name of the contest and nothing else or he flat out lied about the contest. 3: He claims that James Rolfe had rigged the contest. Well that’s weird because according to Mike Matei, GameTrailers did the contest without their consent and James didn’t even see the HVGN videos until after it ended. After hearing this awful, awful use of slander, I Immediately began to realize how bad The Irate Gamer truly was and how I felt like a complete idiot for trying to defend him all those years. That truly was one of the worst moments I ever had watching a Video.

** Tropers/{{Renelia}}: Seconded. Other than what was said above about TMNT 1, most of his "review" on TMNT 1 was him running into enemies to get hit and blames the game for his own actions. His trashing of TMNT 2 because of removing features that the NES can't even handle (and it's a PortingDistillation at that). What doesn't help is that he basically calls the two extra levels added "worthless and pointless." Chris also claims you have one life and if you lose, it's game over and back to the start. (although you can clearly see his lives counter as 4 from another part of the game just a few seconds prior). Then he goes on for TMNT 3, which he reviews for a few seconds, then he dismisses it to go to the previously mentioned TMNT 4. He claims it was the SNES' KillerApp (when it was also a PortingDistillation of the Arcade game.) Worst part about it was that he still claims it's a [[CriticalResearchFailure Super NES exclusive in his TMNT: Turtles in Time ReShelled review.]]
