** His review of 5th Edition D&D was full of BackInMyDay and TheReasonYouSuck against modern players. His NostalgiaFilter is turned UpToEleven when he complains about the lowered lethality of the game compared to 2nd Edition [[note]]Considering that 1st level characters 2nd Edition, even the warriors, are at risk of being [[OneHitKill one hit killed]], this is suspect to say the least.[[/note]].

* BrokenBase: His "3d6 In Order" video and mindset has its fans, while others strongly disagree with his old-school thesis, by Spoony's own admission, doesn't really work for any version of ''D&D'' after Second Edition. (The game is currently in its Fifth iteration.) Similarly, some agree with his assertion that the use of other systems of stat generation that result in generally higher and stabler stats caters to powergamers and munchkins and encourages a toxic mindset of play, while others complain that using {{Honest Rolls Character}}s frequently screws over players who come to the table with an idea of what class they want to play, since the chance of rolling up stats completely opposed to their concept is high. Notably, an HonestRollsCharacter [[https://muleabides.wordpress.com/2012/02/11/you-must-be-this-lucky-to-play/ has a less than one percent chance to qualify for some classes even in the editions of the game more friendly to it]].

* StopHavingFunGuy: Spoony can be hard to watch when he gets into a grind of shouting about how spoiled modern gamers are and how much easier the game is... even though cooler heads would generally say this is because the game is [[FakeDifficulty better-designed]] rather than because it is simply easier.
