** A day after his review on ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' got released on Website/YouTube, the video was suddenly flagged for unknown reasons, probably because some ''Metal Gear'' fans were a bit angry with his criticism of the game. This is largely because, although many find the NES version inferior, it actually has a devoted fanbase that prefers it over the original version. Its narm factor (The truck '''have''' started to move), the fact that the trucks aren't just a trap, the different soundtrack, and the fact that, although unintentionally, it's less linear than the MSX2 version, what with the amount of SequenceBreaking one can do (although you must still kill all of the bosses) are all reasons for this. The fact that the rooftop enemies no longer fly around probably helps as well.

*** Also, in another "Chronologically Confused" timeline at the beginning of the ''Metal Gear'' episode, the Nerd mentions the first four games: ''VideoGame/MetalGear1'', ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'', ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', and ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', before stating that "Today there's so many ''Metal Gear Solid'' sequels and so many versions of each game it's out of control." (He also states that ''Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake'' was the first true sequel released only in Japan, "so unless you lived in Japan, chances are you weren't aware of it at the time.") Well, he forgot that there were actually two more sequels: ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' and ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' (which wasn't around until 2013, since the episode aired in 2009 at the time). The rest of the games, including ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', are prequels of the original ''Metal Gear'' (''Snake Eater''[='=]s UpdatedRerelease, ''Subsistence'', now has both the MSX2 versions of ''Metal Gear'' and ''Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake''); by 2015, the last ''Metal Gear'' prequel, ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', was released on September 1, which was the GrandFinale that brought Hideo Kojima's ''Metal Gear'' series to an end.

** When he reviewed ''Home Alone 2'', he claimed that the game stole sound effects from ''Bart vs. The Space Mutants'', since both were by different companies. While both games were ''published'' by different companies (THQ vs. Acclaim), they were ''developed'' by the same company: Imagineering.

** In the review of ''Superman'' for NES as well as the ''Tiger Games'' video, he comments on how idiotic an idea it is to make a video game about the stock market. Come 2016, and one of the games for the 3DS's [=StreetPass=] Mii Plaza is about...the stock market. And it's much better than it sounds.

Not to mention that ''Wall Street Kid'', an NES game from 1990, is, in fact, all about the stock market.

** Prior to the upload of his re-visitation of his older reviews, some comments on Super Back to the Future II stated that the Nerd would probably be happy with the game. Guess what happens?

** In his NintendoPower review, he ponders if they ever gave a rain check to the winner of the contest to star as an extra in the aborted Mask 2 film (not related to ''Film/SonOfTheMask''). The last issue of Nintendo Power issued an apology to the winner of the contest!

** "Sega Activator Interactor Menacer" has also split the fanbase, one side enjoys the over-the-top nature of it all, the other side doesn't care for the same feel and don't like how the video focuses more on being a parody of '90s video game ads with lots of bottle-smashing than reviewing the products themselves.
