* WhiteKnighting: A lot have accused him of doing this for [[WebVideo/FeministFrequency Anita Sarkeesian]], and [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment we'll just leave it at that]].

** 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.

** 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.

** His three part look back at Kevin Smith's career, as well as his discussion on SoBadItsGood movies in relation to Tusk left a lot of people sour. As Bob tried to explain why Smith was a BrokenPedastal to him, it became clear a lot of Bob's issues stemmed from him expecting more from Smith as a film maker than the director ever really wanted to be.

Added DiffLines:

* HumorDissonance: His ''Really That Good'' episode focusing on the original ''Film/NationalLampoonsVacation'' is entirely predicated on how funny it is. After making this statement, Bob cuts to a montage of [[OrphanedPunchline Orphaned Punchlines]] from the movie which is completely unfunny. This is especially odd given that half the video is him explaining just how specific to it's intended audience the movie is.

** Bob's second ChannelHop back to Screwattack which brought the return of the "traditional" Game Overthinker and the [[BlatantLies totally new show In Bob We Trust]] have seen this reaction as well.

** His review of ''The Amazing Spider Man 2'' 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/{{Godzilla2014}}'' is getting a case of this as well. Granted, that film is itself a BaseBreaker, so it's par for the course.

** Furthermore, his intense antipathy towards the "Retake ''VideoGame/MassEffect''" movement was heavily-rooted in his low opinion of the morals and intellectual capacity of the gaming community, and his horror at the idea of the "gamer community" 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!"

** Furthermore, his intense antipathy towards the "Retake ''VideoGame/MassEffect''" movement 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 the "gamer community" what in his mind were a bunch of AcceptableTargets degrading TheAuteurTheory as applied to video games.

** Bob's views on "Retake ''Franchise/MassEffect''". Some feel that this was a welcome rebuttal to the [[FanDumb more vocal elements]] of the gamer community, while others feel that he is CompletelyMissingThePoint as to why people didn't like the ending to ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', and many flat-out rejected his opinion due to him saying he hadn't played the games before, and didn't even look at the endings.

** Bob once infamously stated that he preferred ''Other M'', one of the most controversial games in the ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' series, to the beloved and universally-acclaimed ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy'' '''entirely''' on the basis that the ''Prime'' games were {{First Person Shooter}}s, and thus automatically, and this is a direct quote, "creatively bankrupt."

** He has become notorious for the fact that his intense opposition to politically-incorrect, unfriendly, and "macho" members the "hardcore" gaming and nerd community, noble in and of itself, bleeds into hating anything he thinks they like, including the entire genre of "shooters."
