** In ''Super Mario 64'' Dan says that after a year on the show, he's become far more self-conscious about playing games badly in public, which is why his playing time has had such a noticeable drop.

* {{Squick}}: When Dan brings up the topic of sex, Arin will occasionally respond with his own sexual anecdotes such as what a woman's vagina tastes like or when he ejaculated on a girl's chest. The key problem with this is that in ''other'' episodes, Arin will mention how Suzy is the only girl he's ever slept with. When you put two and two together, you then realize Arin is describing in graphic detail his sex life with Suzy. It suddenly makes his stories a lot grosser, as well as raises the question of if Suzy is even comfortable having her sex life broadcasted like that.

** The ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime playthrough has already proven to be divisive due to Arin's controversial WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}} video of the game. The videos of [[ThatOneLevel the Water Temple]] in particular garnered this reaction due to Arin using a walkthrough to quickly complete it.

** Comments on the ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' playthrough are becoming a thesis on SanitySlippage with viewers getting continuously angrier at Arin’s refusal to take off the hover boots (which put Link into permanent SlipperySkid mode). It really came to a head in Part 67 when Arin kept getting caught by the guards in Gerudo’s Fortress (an area with zero use for the hover boots’ floaty powers), and rears its ugly head again in part 74 when Arin can’t solve a puzzle because he has no arrows. …Except he skipped right past a [[ItemDropMechanic dropped]] bundle of arrows five minutes before that. Explosive debates ensued over whether the boots made him do it or [[MemeticMutation Arin just sucks at video games]].

'''''whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???'''''

** All throughout the ''Ocarina of Time'' playthrough, Arin refers to Sheik as a guy since Danny does not seem to know otherwise. Does Danny legitimately not know that Sheik is actually Zelda, or does he actually know and he's just playing along for Arin and the audience's sake?

** [[TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time.]] The series, at the time of writing, is 78 episodes in, with many of the episodes consisting of Arin getting stuck somewhere, complaining the game isn't being clear on what to do/where to go, constant deaths which result in backtracking (and then more deaths because Arin refuses to stock up on supplies), and in general failing to grasp the mechanics of the game. This wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't made a 30 minute video on why the game is bad, but the series, in addition to its longetivity, is also serving to punch more holes in his argument as opposed to grounding it.

** During Jon's tenure, he and Arin got in several arguments on and off camera about how the show should be edited, with particular focus on borrowing Continue Show's dramatic replays with Nightwish music. Fans didn't think anything of it at the time (and most of them agreed with Jon) but after Jon's departure it became obvious in retrospect that Jon and Arin didn't agree on how the channel should develop.

** During their Strider 2 playthrough; Arin mentioned Steve-O coming over to their house would be very unlikely. He later guest starred in an episode.
