* ViewersAreMorons:
** Chris seems under the impression that the people watching have never played a video game... ever!
** Any time he circles something that's blatantly obvious. The playable character, the enemies, the objectives...
** He expected people not to notice the graphical differences in his ''Ghosts 'N Goblins'' review, despite the clear distinction between an NES and an arcade.

** You see the cracked pipe [[ViewersAreMorons labeled "Gas Line"]]? Bores showed it again and again and again to make sure you get the joke. From the same episode, whenever the scene switched between timelines, Bores reminded us what game he's playing. He shouldn't be doing this since it gives the idea that he's aware there are two timelines going on, which he shouldn't.

** The Kool-Aid man is depicted as always saying "Oh YEAH!," "Oh kay," and "Oh no." But in the commercials and comics, he actually speaks in full sentences.

* AmericanAccents: He has one of the thickest Ohio accents ever, mixed with a slight speech impediment. The accent is most noticeable in the way he sometimes sticks L's where they don't belong (e.g. "bolth" instead of "both", "Jawls" instead of "Jaws", "drawlback" instead of drawback").

* CaptainObvious: Many of his complaints about games stem from common [[InformedFlaw "problems"]] found in '''many''' games.
** He complained that...
*** ''VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors'' only gives you 3 lives and passwords and that the game gets harder in later levels.
*** ''The freaking boss life bar'' in his ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' review, never mind there have been hundreds of games before this that have that.
*** That ''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn'' was intended for kids. Well yeah, the VideoGame/{{Kirby}} series was always intended for younger gamers. How is this any different? Besides, being intended for kids doesn't mean it's bad.
** The green circles. Very often he would circle things that are in plain sight. Notably main characters, enemies, and items that everyone can see. In the Kool-Aid Man review, he circled the playable characters, the objective, and the power-ups.
** You could create a drinking game for each instance where he complained that the game's later levels get harder.
** See [[Quotes/TheIrateGamer the Quotes page]] to read his CaptainObvious sayings.
* CardCarryingVillain: The Evil Gamer. He constantly uses the word "evil", he lives in "The Castle Of Evil", and he asks to do an "evil Aflac Duck" in the Aflac Duck audition sketch.

* DanBrowned:

** Probably the most blatant example is in the ''VideoGame/MonsterParty'' episode, where at the beginning, Chris explains that lots of people have been coming to his door asking for directions to the big Halloween Party that he isn't even invited to, and the whole gag keeps happening throughout the course of the episode. This gag would have actually worked if he didn't explain it.
** The FacePalm running gag from his ''Kirby's Epic Yarn'' video. When he does it, he adds a voice and caption to make sure we know what he's doing. He does this again in his ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' review, but mercifully, doesn't add the voice and caption.
** After calling R.O.B. "ROB-o-Cop" after [=RoboCop=], he proceeds to show both names in text in case we didn't get the pun the first time.

* ItsAllAboutMe: Chris very rarely gives credit to other people involved in his videos.

** We still have no clue who played the Predator in that episode.

** One of his main complaints about ''[[VideoGame/MarioIsMissing Mario is Missing]]'' & ''Mario's Time Machine'', never mind that the games were made to teach kids about history. This conflicts with the below trope where he constantly whined about games being too hard.

** He whined that the ''ResidentEvil5'' amateur setting is still too difficult and actually asked "Why couldn't they make the easy setting easier?"
** If you look in the right places, it's blatantly obvious that he cheated.
*** Examples include suddenly skipping to the last level (''Goonies II'', ''Super Mario Bros 2''), infinite lives (all the Contra games, ''TMNT III: The Manhattan Project''), invincibility (''VideoGame/MonsterParty''), max stats (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII''), or other methods of cheating (''TMNT II: The Arcade Game'', ''CoolSpot'')
** This even went so far that he complained when ''VideoGame/HomeImprovement'' didn't have GameGenie codes.

** As part of a "gag" in his ''Mario's Time Machine'' review, he noted that the Sledgehammer item was placed in 1989 because of PeterGabriel's Sledgehammer Tour, and Bores manipulated it to be so. In actuality the Sledgehammer represented the fall of the Berlin Wall. [[UnreliableNarrator And the song Sledgehammer came out 3 years prior to 1989.]]



** In his R.O.B. review, he said there's a party button. There is none; the first time is obvious, where he deliberately adds a sticker to the controller that says "P" as in party, but then the word "Party" is added to the second game when it wasn't there a second ago. There's no real defense for it; he was telling a joke, but tried to mislead the viewer.
** Often watching the screenshots of him playing and dying to show how "hard" the game is are painful to watch for anyone who has actually played the games. It's pretty obvious that he's either not bothering to TRY not to die, or he just really, really sucked at the game. The ''TMNT'' review is one of the worst culprits. He seemed to believe that the best way to play both of the first two games is to simply walk straight at enemies and randomly swing his weapons, with no attempts to dodge, jumpkick, or use any other style that might make it harder for them to hit you.
*** His ''Contra'' reviews are worse. Most of the time he's not firing his gun and purposely jumped into enemies to emphasize the "this game is so fucking frustrating" complaint.
** Two of the six "never-before-seen" games shown in the third ''History of Video Games'' video were created by Bores himself.



** A blink-and-you-miss-it instance during this four-player game of Spot the Video Game on NES. At the end the screen announced "Player One Defeated" in obviously fake text. What kind of four-player game would say "Random Player Loses" instead of "This Player Wins"?
** When playing the Arcade version of ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'', he tried to pass off that he was playing the NES version by using the NES controller.
** During the "killing ''That 70's Show'' cast members joke" in ''[=RoboCop=]'', the game being used is ''Hogan's Alley'', not the bonus stage. He couldn't even use the right game!
* NegativeContinuity: The Kool-Aid Man returned in his ''VideoGame/CoolSpot'' review, despite having already been killed off in a previous review.
* NinjaEditor: In the original ''MUSCLE'' review, he said there were no special moves. The system for them was kind of dumb, but it existed. The ''remastered'' review removed that line.

* {{Plot Hole}}s:
** In his ''Aladdin'' review, he created a plot hole just to tell a terrible joke. IG said he's going to review another game, and the Genie responded "don't take too long, my rug is double parked outside". It should be noted that not even one minute ago, they teleported home after Bores found the Genie in a video game cartridge. Where did the magic carpet come from?
** In his ''Mario's Time Machine / Mario is Missing'' review, when he switches time lines, he'll say "now after doing this in ''Mario is Missing''," or "after doing so-and-so in ''Mario's Time Machine''," which would imply that he knew about both time lines when he shouldn't.
** In his ''MUSCLE'' review, he attempted a Continuity Nod to his first video exclaiming "I'll have to go back in time again, and take care of business". He shouldn't remember doing that because he was erased from time.
** It's clear that IG keeps trying to establish a storyline between his videos, yet he screwed that up when the Kool-Aid Man somehow comes back to life (as seen in his Cool Spot review).
*** In the same video, Chris was willing to give away his Magnavox Odyssey for a free pizza. However when he saw it was his evil twin he told him to go away. Either that was a really good pizza or Bores never proofreads his scripts.
** In a flashback, it was revealed him, Wise Sage, and Tony went to High School... The Contra review is where they ''actually'' first met.



* ProductPlacement: Parodied in his ''Yo! Noid'' review, yet still played straight as he ended the sequence with a promotion for his own T-Shirt.
* ReadTheFreakingManual:
** The Irate Gamer refused to read the ''Contra'' instruction manual for the story during his review of the game in question (even if the US localization suffered from CutAndPasteTranslation), so he believed the game took place in a straight modern war setting in the likes of ''Rambo''. He is then caught by surprise once the aliens started showing up later in the game.
** Happens in the ''Goonies II'' review. When he gets to the end of the game, he expresses surprise that DamselInDistress Annie is a mermaid. Never mind that this is mentioned on the ''very first page'' of the manual. Not having the manual isn't an excuse, as the whole thing's been posted online.

** He tried this on his haters in his ''CoolSpot'' review, saying, "These idiots can't even make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without ruining it!" Few actually saw this as a good comeback.
** It's unclear, but one of the "characters" shown in peril in his ''Film/{{RoboCop|1987}}'' review appears to be dressed up to look like AVGN. Except with an eyepatch. This has been commented on several times in the Website/YouTube comments.

* ThisLoserIsYou:
** His constant use of Game Genie and other cheat devices. Made even worse when he doesn't admit he cheated (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' review) or that he was proud of using them (Top 5 NES Games).
** Heck, there's a whole [[http://irategamersucks.blogspot.com/ blog]] dedicated to showcasing his constant failure at everything.
** Aside from his reviews, he had been the target to many jokes, rants and comments from internet personalities including Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses and [[WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} Diabetus, Khad, and Slowbeef]].



* UnreliableNarrator:
** When talking about ''Film/{{Hellboy}} II: The Golden Army'', he was excited to see David Hyde Pierce reprise his role as Abe Sapien. Actually, a little research would show Pierce refused to do the sequel and Abe was voiced by Doug Jones (the man in the costume).
** The IG NEO review of ''MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympics'' claimed that "Sega released the Genesis to compete with the Super Nintendo.". The Genesis was released before the SNES everywhere. (In North America the Genesis was released in 1989 and the SNES was released in 1991. Two years does not equal "same time.") He also called the game ''Mario vs. Sonic''.
** In the "pilot" of ''Chris & Scottie Roadtrip'', he said that Metropolis is the hometown of Franchise/{{Superman}}. Except ''Smallville'' is the hometown of Superman in most incarnations. He also said Death Valley is in New Mexico. It's actually on the border of California and Nevada.
** In his ''VideoGame/CoolSpot'' review, he mentioned that the NES game ''Spot: The Video Game'' is based off ''Othello''. Actually, it's based off ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ataxx Ataxx]]''.
** His ''History of Video Games'' had many problems.
** This line: "It's also a good example of how Magnavox '''might have been''' trying to market the Odyssey as a board game, rather then a video game'. Of course they were marketing it as a board game; video games were still in the early stages, plus they technically didn't even exist in 1972. That one line alone debunked his claimed "hours of research."
*** He also claimed ''Tank'' was created by Atari. Actually it was created by Kee Games. While it was a subsidiary of {{Atari}}, that detail was kept secret until after ''Tank'' came out.
** He claimed it was ''speculated'' that Nolan Bushnell attended a demonstration of the Odyssey and nobody knew if he was really there. Except for interviews with Atari founders PROVING that Bushnell did see the Odyssey, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9EWb6a2Shg&feature=player_detailpage#t=129s including this]].
** In his ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' review, he had the LJN CEO saying on the phone, "You tell Mr. Silvestri I'll handle all the ''Back to the Future'' games." Alan Silvestri, the person he was referring to, was the composer to the film's music, not the producer.
** In the ''MUSCLE'' review, he claimed that there was only one arena, when there were actually three.
** In his review of ''VideoGame/DantesInferno'' he said that it was accurate to the [[DivineComedy book it was based on]], even though it wasn't a book and it butchered its source material. It didn't help when he claimed to have actually read it. He also thought the original poem was called ''Dante's Inferno''; when in fact, the ''Inferno'' was one section of the longer work which was called ''Commedia'' until Boccaccio added ''Divina'' to the name some years after Dante's death.
** In the second part of his ''Mario's Time Machine'' review, he says that there are 1 or 2 alternate endings, when there are actually 3 endings.

*** ''ZombiesAteMyNeighbors'' only gives you 3 lives and passwords and that the game gets harder in later levels.
*** ''The freaking boss life bar'' in his ''SonicUnleashed'' review, never mind there have been hundreds of games before this that have that.
*** That ''Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn'' was intended for kids. Well yeah, the {{Kirby}} series was always intended for younger gamers. How is this any different? Besides, being intended for kids doesn't mean it's bad.

** He complained about the fact that Nintendo supposedly never said anything about the whole real ''SMB 2'' thing in America even though it was all over NintendoPower when ''Super Mario All Stars'' was released as a major selling point of that game, and it was even mentioned before that, in a feature on the history of the ''SuperMarioBros'' series Nintendo Power ran during the lead up to the launch of the SNES (and its launch pack-in title, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'').

* DemonicSpiders: In-Universe: One of his complaints about ''IndianaJones and the Temple of Doom''. He seemed to think that they cause you to think your game is glitched at first.

** The FacePalm running gag from his ''Kirby's Epic Yarn'' video. When he does it, he adds a voice and caption to make sure we know what he's doing. He does this again in his ''MarvelVsCapcom3'' review, but mercifully, doesn't add the voice and caption.

** When talking about ''{{Gyromite}}'' in his R.O.B. video, he keeps calling the main character, Professor Hector, "Professor Gyro".
** In the ''[[{{Kinnikuman}} MUSCLE]]'' review, the original cartoon that the game was based on was called ''Kinnikuman'' (translates into Muscleman) after the main character, not [[FunWithAcronyms MUSCLE]] as he claims.

** This even went so far that he complained when ''HomeImprovement'' didn't have GameGenie codes.
** Inverted in his review of ''NinjaGaiden 3'' where he constantly praised the easy gameplay and button-mashing, an issue that almost every other reviewer has with the game.

** Also in his ''ZombiesAteMyNeighbors'' review when he said the title should have been ''Monsters Ate My Neighbors'' because it had enemies other than zombies.

** In his ''SonicUnleashed'' review, when complaining about the cut scenes and hub worlds, he walked up to the Ice Cream Man NPC, talked to him and whined "Great, more shit from the Ice Cream Man". He tried to pass this off as the game's fault.
** In his ''CoolSpot'' review he said that you have to collect 30% of the red tokens to open the cage. But when he's finishing the game and he opened the final cage it clearly showed he's only got 29%. Even worse, later on when he finished the game for the 'proper' ending it's the same footage as before.

** A particularly bad example in his ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}'' video had him intensely ButtonMashing the NES controller in a couple montages. ''He was button-mashing {{Tetris}}''.

* SpecialEditionTitle: The title sequence in the ''Order Up'' review is played backwards to reflect the HostileShowTakeover. The ''ZombiesAteMyNeighbors'' episode also had a special Halloween ThemeTune.

** In the "pilot" of ''Chris & Scottie Roadtrip'', he said that Metropolis is the hometown of {{Superman}}. Except ''Smallville'' is the hometown of Superman in most incarnations. He also said Death Valley is in New Mexico. It's actually on the border of California and Nevada.
** In his ''CoolSpot'' review, he mentioned that the NES game ''Spot: The Video Game'' is based off ''Othello''. Actually, it's based off ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ataxx Ataxx]]''.
