*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.]]

* Tropers/Erin582: The 2012 e-begging "Spoof" gets my vote. I just hate to open such an old can of worms, but regardless on where you stand on the WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd[=/=]WebVideo/TheIrateGamer "war", I found this to be really childish, shallow and unprofessional on IG's part. Be that as it may that the Nerd's e-begging/Kickstarter campaign looks silly/pathetic/annoying/etc. in hindsight, I find it rather irritating that someone who tries to set himself apart from other game reviewers and constantly tries to prove himself going as far as to mock someone who, ironically enough, doesn't mock him and discourages his fans from doing so. Also, it looks worse that he decides to behave in such a way that his haters [[NotSoDifferent have been treating him throughout the years.]] Now fast-forward about two and a half years and IG HIMSELF is now begging his fans...for amiibo action figures which connect to the Wii U. Toys in other words, which he initially dismissed as something children will like all the while being obsessed with the Skylanders action figures. What the [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]] hell, man?

* Tropers/{{Cliche}}: The Irate Gamer's ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' review, in which he acts like the fact that it was a DolledUpInstallment of ''Doki Doki Panic'' [[ViewersAreMorons was a huge shocking revelation and not something every gamer at least half-heartedly versed in gaming history knows already]]. And if that wasn't bad enough, he goes on to attack the game for ridiculous, contrived reasons. Toad has a use in being the fastest and strongest character, it isn't that hard to chain attacks on enemies to gain hearts, and he was obviously using cut and paste editing to claim he could take a dump in the time the Star would touch the character, not to mention positioning it in the area where it would naturally take the most time to get. He's just bashing a classic game for the sake of bashing a classic game, and he doesn't even make good arguments for them either.

* Main/{{minikiss}}: First things first: I do admit that I really do enjoy the Irate Gamer despite a couple of flaws. In his History of Video Games Part 10 about the UsefulNotes/{{Intellivision}} however there was a segment with him constantly failing a skiing and after a fake Game Over screen, which honestly I didn't cared alot for, he the suddenly out of nowhere made a tasteless joke in expense of Sonny Bono's tragic ski accident. I defend the show at almost every occasion, however [[DudeNotFunny doing a joke in expense of a real life person's dead which let's face it isn't funny at all is probably the biggest lowpoint anyone could ever go for a cheap gag.]] I don't hate Chris personally, but the Sunny Bono Gag was without a doubt the worst joke he's ever done.

I don't hate Chris personally, but the Sunny Bono Gag was without a doubt the worst joke he's ever done.
