* 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 were 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.

* Sampa CM: Personally I don't mind him that much, I like watching parodies such as the Third Rate Gamer, or take-ons such as the ''I can't believe it's not [=AVGN=]'' series by Dlabaoaqu, or the ''Irate Gamer Sucks'' blog, which are actually pretty funny. However, there are instances that, no matter mow much I try, I just can't find them funny at all. So, my personal [=DMOS=] is his review of the ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' games for the NES. The very worst part comes when he reviews the NES port of [[VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTheArcadeGame the Arcade Game]] (One of my favorite games from my childhood). When he starts the game, he suddenly calls it a huge letdown and a pixelated nightmare for not having arcade-style graphics and 4-player mode. What?! It's an 8-bit port, the graphics obviously will not be the same as the Arcade version, and it only allows two players! And he doesn't even talk about the controls, which I find soft and fluid, or the gameplay. I actually find this port easier than the original Arcade version, and I really love [[AdaptationExpansion the extra stages]], but he claims that they're a waste of space, then adds that Konami should have used it to make the game closer to the Arcade version. Then he destroys the cartidge. Why? Just because of the graphics? This episode was painful: He bashes a good game such as [=TMNT2:=] The Arcade Game for NES for incredibly stupid reasons (The graphics, the 2-player mode, which he actually praises in [[VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTurtlesInTime Turtles In Time]], showing that he can't even make his mind about it), and I find this episode too painful to watch again... At least the oiginal episode, I can still enjoy Dlabaoaqu's take-on in his ''I can't believe it's not [=AVGN=]'' series, or the severe critic made in the ''Irate Gamer Sucks'' blog.

* 1upmushroom: His review of ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'' anyone? I can handle the poor grammar ("Most hardest game"), I can handle the pointless characters like Devil Bores and Cousin Joey, I can even handle the fact that he claims the game is too hard when the gameplay footage shows that he isn't even trying (that last one is to expected by now), I mean these aspects make the review bad [[SoBadItsGood but in a entertaining way]]. However there are two problems that make this review worse than usual. One, the fact that he covers both the Arcade and NES version while claiming he's only doing the NES version. Now this wouldn't be a bad thing, if not for the fact that he says he's only reviewing the NES version and puts in footage of the arcade version hoping people wouldn't notice. He's reason for doing so (that being summed up as "The NES version was too hard for me to beat, so I used the Arcade version while activating the God mode cheat to show the rest of the game") makes it even worse! [[FridgeLogic Really Chris? You included both versions because one was too hard? Well why did you make it seem like both versions were just one? Why didn't you transition from one version to another? Why didn't you just pick the easier version to begin with?!]]
** Secondly, even with the cheat on he still sucks at the game! Seriously, this proves he's not even trying! He's just going onward while blasting the game for his own faults! I'm normally conditioned to accept that he doesn't try playing the games he reviews, but not trying even when you have an invincibility cheat activated?!

* Tropers/TommyX: His review of ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed''. He played the first two Sonic levels and said they were good. Then said the Adventure Fields, Werehog and plane levels suck and don't belong in a Sonic game, saying stuff like "Since when has Sonic been this?" YMMV on the Werehog, but Adventure fields were in the fanbases previous Sonic Adventure, and Sonic has been riding on Tails' plane since Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and there are only two of these levels in the whole game. If you're going to criticise a main part of the game, play more than the first level and do basic research.

* {{Tropers/GojiBiscuits}}: Bores rants and insults SuperMarioBros2 for the speed at which hearts and stars rise up towards the top of the screen, even though all any normal player would need to do is jump down and grab the power-up, then simply jump back up to where they were.

** Savini24: It's hard to pick from the other moments, but here goes: Bores goes down a list of times where he was copied by James, or that James deliberately beat him to a subject matter to steal his thunder. All of the instances have been debunked due by people who have bothered to research the release and announcement dates. Even if Chris honestly believed that he was being targeted by James, his failure to substantiate his claims makes this attempt to turn the tables look like he's unnecessarily playing the victim card. It falls flat on its face and makes Bores seem as dishonest and manipulative as he's trying to make James out to be.
