** More recently in 2015, Spoony has devoted more time [[LetsPlay livestreaming Let's Plays on YouTube]] than anything else. The ''Massacre In Central High'' videos are the only notable reviews he made that year.

* GrowingTheBeard: Most fans point to the review of ''VideoGame/TheThing'' video game as the point where Spoony started hitting his stride and established his trademark humor and running gags. He himself agrees, mostly since that review marked the point where he started writing actual scripts rather than just talking off-the-cuff about the games he was reviewing.

** Seeing JewWario trying to cheer Spoony up during this can make this hard to watch because no one apparently could do the same before JW's suicide.

** Any of the (surprisingly numerous) SuicideAsComedy moments counts, as one of Spoony's fans sent him a "goodbye" email before committing suicide, which has inspired Noah not to make this kind of joke anymore. His friend JewWario committed suicide in 2014, likely cementing this policy for good.

** In his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/XComEnemyUnknown'' (found on his Twitch account), he named the characters after other Channel Awesome personalities. On one particularly disastrous mission, WebVideo/MarzGurl's character panicked and hit WebVideo/JewWario with {{Friendly Fire}}, prompting Spoony to exclaim "My God, woman! Don't shoot Justin!" This was, of course, a year before Justin committed suicide.

** His negative review of ''TheExpendables'' has gotten plenty of detractors, not just from his fans at the comments section, but from his fellow TGWTG contributors as well. ** His bashing (to say the least) of ''MetroidOtherM'' on Twitter attracted even more negative attention to himself.

** A joke about someone being DrivenToSuicide because their religion was a lie? [[DudeNotFunny Harsh]]. A joke about [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Wakka]] being DrivenToSuicide because his religion was a lie, complete with a prop [[ImprobableWeaponUser Blitzball]] and an impersonation of his voice? [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Gold.]]

* DudeNotFunny: ** Spoony did this to himself when reviewing the {{Shovelware}} ''VideoGame/DirtyDancing'' game and suggesting that one of the minigames be about giving a coat hanger abortion. Over the stock boos, he says "What?! It happened in the movie!" ** This happened for real during the second part of his review of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', his character encouraged his fans to track down and murder fans of the game before finally announcing he would do it himself with a box cutter. More than a few people have been disturbed that he would even joke about that, feeling that it goes one step too many beyond mere [[FanHater fan hating]]. ** In the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' video, Spoony attempts to pull an AbusiveParents joke for laughs. ** Some fans were apparently unhappy with the jokes he cracked about Creator Lou Ferrigno's character in ''Cage'', a brain-damaged Vietnam vet who gets tricked into an [[FightClubbing underground cagefight]]; Spoony remarked that if anything, he was '''complaining''' about the idea. ** He did it to himself again at the beginning of his ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' review, apologizing for the gay joke he made about Squall and Seifer back in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. ** Done in his review of ''VideoGame/UltimaIX'', where he laid out an epic TakeThat against Richard Garriot for making several games in a row where he has no choice but to kill children.

** "What's a paladin?". Not by his own fault, but purely by how much the concept of a paladin comes up during Counter Monkey.

** As well as The Ultima Series. While Ultima was massively popular in its time and paved the way for almost all future {{Role Playing Game}}s, the fact it's more or less a zombie franchise now, it's not as well known as it used to be.

** Spoony's released the second part of his review of ''Ultima IX'', the much-loathed conclusion to the ''{{Ultima}}'' franchise, in July 2012. Only a few days later, Bioware annouced they were reviving the franchise with an upcoming live Beta for ''Ultima Forever''.

** And again when he said he actually liked ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''[='s=] ending and called out the complainers, first on Twitter then on his livestream. His main points were "it was obvious from the start what would happen", "it fits the story and mood perfectly", and "you guys are just mad that you didn't get your Fem!Shep lesbian harem ending". Which is rather bizarre, considering he made fun of it in the end of his ''UltimaIX'' review. The reason Spoony liked the ending is that he believed the [[WildMassGuessing Indoctrination Theory]] was the intended point before the Internet at large had even come up with it, and that the plot points fans would later cling to as evidence were legit foreshadowing he thought he was cleverly noticing. [[http://youtu.be/JNmBr_jd3N8?t=57m30s He describes the extended cut]] as Bioware affirming that "nope, our ending really ''is'' that bad."

* MostAnnoyingSound: Spoony's ''Film/UltimaIX'' review started up a "Betrayal Counter" that yelled out "BETRAYAL!", "BETRAYED ME!" or "THIS GAME SUCKS" every time it went up. This got annoying ''really'' fast (but fortunately stopped after a while once the game started providing scenes to cut away to instead.) He acknowledged this complaint, and the counter was removed from Part 2 of the review[[note]]partly because it was annoying, partly because it was hard to quantify "betrayal"[[/note]]. On the other hand, that video uses a fan-made opening consisting mostly of those same voice clips... He also noted that it was becoming redundant as the counter had already hit 93 in the ''first 20 minutes of the game''.

* NauseaFuel: Spoony's detailed description of his case of food poisoning in the beginning of his GameOverControlAltDeath review can be viewed as such--but it's offset by how hilariously over-the-top he goes with it, and how it leads up to the punchline.
