* HilariousInHindsight: This series is seen a lot differently by fans of LetsPlay/GameGrumps due to how Arin as a lets-player is a radical antithesis to everything he says here. The most frequently-cited example is how Arin rants about characters popping up to tell you annoying and unnecessary information, as there are dozens of moments where an episode of Game Grumps would have gone a lot better if Arin had bothered to read the on-screen prompts instead of just ignoring them. A good amount of the fanbase is able to compromise these two conflicting portrayals with the realization that Arin's game design theories are only really applicable to old-school gaming and aren't fully applicable to modern game design.

Added DiffLines:

* FranchiseOriginalSin: Traces of the more controversial elements of the ''Zelda'' episode can be seen all the way back in the first video, ''Castlevania'' vs. ''Castlevania II: Simon's Quest''. At the very end, Arin makes a statement that the modern ''Castlevania'' titles, the ones that took more cues from ''II'' than the original, are similar to junk food (quick to eat, hard to savor) while the original title is more like a fulfilling dessert. This mirrors the ''Zelda'' video by speaking highly of old-school design philosophy while holding modern iterations under scrutiny, but the key differences are that he does ''attempt'' to see why people could like them (he notices that the elements of ''II'' are done in a much flashier, more satisfying way) and avoids disparaging the people who enjoy them.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: Played with in his ''VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV'' video. He notes that the increased power of the whip isn't a bad thing on its own, rather that it reduces the complexity of combat and makes the subweapons pointless. He suggests that the game might have been better if it ditched the subweapons and focused on unique challenges designed for the whip, not necessarily to make the game harder, but to make it more cohesive.

** And then Arin started playing Ocarina of Time on Game Grumps, and after numerous displays of extreme incompetence with the game, many have come to feel that his entire treatise on Ocarina of Time can be safely disregarded because he doesn't know what he's talking about, and that the only reason he hates 3D Zeldas is because he sucks at them.
