** Furthermore, his intense antipathy towards the "Retake ''VideoGame/MassEffect''" movement, which went on for more than a month of him being unable to make any videos about ''anything'' without spending a bit of time ranting about it, was heavily-rooted in his low opinion of the morals and intellectual capacity of the gaming community, and his horror at the idea of what in his mind were a bunch of AcceptableTargets degrading TheAuteurTheory as applied to video games. Notably, he maintained throughout the controversy that he didn't see why his complete ignorance of the source material should prevent him from having an opinion about it and regularly dismissed the idea that a "player-driven narrative" could have any artistic value. Another direct quote: "No one ever won a Pulitzer for a f@#$ing 'Choose Your Own Adventure' novel!"

* BaseBreaker: [[EvilCounterpart The Game Antithinker]] definelty qualifies. He's either [[RuleOfFunny a nice comedic divergence]], or another annoying and pointless TakeThat to MovieBob's opinon of "hardcore gamers".

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: His videos on how fans need to be more accepting of outsiders coming into nerdy hobbies falls flat considering his gate keeping towards his own nostalgia, insisting anyone who did not grow up with the same consoles as him is not a true gamer. Also, he is very dismissive of any movies targeted towards 'millennial' teenagers.

* OpinionMyopia: If he doesn't like it, anyone who says they do like it is lying or stupid. He's not subtle about this, and frequently says it flat-out. See BiasSteamroller above.

* OpinionMyopia: If he really doesn't like it, anyone who says they do like it is lying or stupid. If he really ''does'' like it, anyone who ''doesn't'' is either lying, stupid, or ''morally deficient''. He's not subtle about this, and frequently says it flat-out. See BiasSteamroller above.

* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory (It's called "The Game ''Overthinker''", after all.)
* HePannedItNowHeSucks: Bob is particularly prone to this because of his tendency to not simply assert that a movie sucks, but also that [[OpinionMyopia everyone else knows it sucks]], and [[FanHater anyone claiming to like it is actually just loyal to the franchise]].

* Narm: His SuperMarioBros3 novel contains a lot of hyperbolic statements about the console wars, like considering it "His own personal Vietnam" and also how the reveal of the game in TheWizard was the equivalent of JFK's assassination or 9/11. It is very hard to take seriously.

** "The Emperor Has No Clothes"[[note]]an episode speculating on the possibility that Sony's success with the first two Playstation consoles boiled down entirely to luck; the episode was written assuming that it was just luck for simplicity[[/note]] & "Heavens to Metroid"[[note]]which contained him bashing on ''Metroid Prime'' again, among other things[[/note]] have produced this.
** Not even to mention the Anti Thinker arc, and what that now has lead to.



** His review of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' is the former taken up to eleven, as it supposedly, in his words, "broke him", and fans are divided whether to feel bad for him or say how much he's [[{{Wangst}} wangsting]] about it.

** His review of ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' is getting a case of this as well. Granted, that film is itself a BaseBreaker, so it's par for the course.
** His criticism of [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] on Twitter and subsequent firing from ''Website/TheEscapist'' has not been met with kindness for either his fans or non fans. This was, however, remedied to some extent when Totalbiscuit's cancer condition was revealed to have worsened, which Bob would respond to with condolences.

** He's become more and more notable for having a very, very strong leaning towards the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, while having an even stronger leaning ''against'' any comic book films not made within that franchise post Ironman.


Added DiffLines:

** After his Pixels review went viral, Bob started doing much more negative, virtriolic reviews in that style to try to keep up the fame he gathered from that review, though it's clearly forced. As such, his more negative attitude is turning fans off.

His review of ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' commented that Quicksilver seemed to only be involved so that Fox could keep the rights to the character, but when the same character was seemingly included for precisely that reason in ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', he didn't even comment on it.

* CriticalResearchFailure: His review of the Warcraft movie contains several complaints about it being set in the "backstory" of the game. Apparently he was unaware the MMO wasn't the beginning of the series.
