** ''FF 8'' review part 4. "Afternoon Delight" and ''SavingPrivateRyan'' have never made more sense together.

* CriticalResearchFailure: On several Counter Monkey episodes, when discussing how Dungeons and Dragons has changed over the years, whenever Spoony wants to see what something was like in "Original D&D", he takes out the Rules Cyclopedia. However the Rules Cyclopedia contains the rules for the Basic D&D (BECM) line. This is especially strange since we've seen the White Box (which contains all the books for OD&D) in Spoony's bookshelf on several occasions.

to:

* CriticalResearchFailure: In the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' review he cites Solid Snake, the protagonist from Franchise/MetalGear. However, the footage actually shows another character, Big Boss. In the interest of fairness, Big Boss did used to go by the codename "Naked Snake" and Solid Snake ''is'' a clone of Big Boss.
** In Yor, Hunter from the Future, the title character saves a father and his daughter from a triceratops. Spoony comments sarcastically that it was lucky Yor was there to save them from the giant herbivore. In reality, large herbivores are often very aggressive in attacking things that wandered into their territory as part of their defense against predators.

** Spoony suffered another wave of backlash for completely savaging the ''DeadliestWarrior'' video game of all things. Spike responded with a DearNegativeReader letter, which prompted a follow-up where Noah responded to the complaints against his review. It's apparently gotten bad enough that he started having to mass-ban trolls from the message board.

** His "reviews" of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. Along with heaping helpings of CriticalResearchFailure, it became very obvious that Spoony was merely [[PanderingToTheBase pandering]] to people [[FanHater obsessed with bashing]] ''Final Fantasy'' games.

** When he began his ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' reviews he was instantly notorious and one of the internet's favourite hate magnets. Now, as he himself notes, nobody but the core fans even cares enough about ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' to hate him anymore. In fact, most of his controversial opinions seem to now be common, or at least greeted with sufficient apathy to no longer matter.

** 2016 seems to be off to a similar start. After nothing in January, Spoony made a return to reviewing with a video for Rebuary, but after promising more for the month, and in general a return to reviewing, it seems to be a repeat of the previous year as 2016 approaches its halfway point.

** Spoony's entry ''Film/TheTerminator'' [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2009/05/24/some-computers-will-believe-anything/ in his ''Reasons I shouldn't write screenplays'' series]], in which [[spoiler: John Conner has been dead for years, his death being covered up by the resistance high command and political decoys used to both trick Skynet into thinking he's still alive and boosting the morale of the resistance soldiers]], begins with him emphasizing that these examples are ''terrible'' ideas that no sane writer would implement. Fast forward a few years, and it has been revealed that the original ending for ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'' involved [[spoiler: Conner getting fatally wounded in the final confrontation and Marcus Wright having his appearance surgically altered to take his place, the Resistance being none-the-wiser due to only the central command being familiar with his appearance.]]

** A straighter form of this comes from reactions to his text articles 'Why I Should Never Write Screenplays', in which he proposes ideas for franchises such as ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' and ''Series/{{ER}}'' that would be spectacularly awful if ever actually filmed. Some fans said they liked the ideas and thought they'd be cool. Spoony had to remind them that they're BAD ideas in the start of his Terminator idea. And in his outlining a final season of E.R. where the ZombieApocalypse occurs, he starts off by saying this idea would be a JumpTheShark moment for the series to stave off further misunderstandings.

** Mission 15 of ''{{Swat 4}}'' with its constant jokes about Russia's anti-gay policies manages to be so ridiculous that it actually makes a pretty good point about how stupid those laws are. Especially when Reynolds and Girard get caught in a compromising position, are forced to go to New Jersey to get gay married and register at Bed Bath & Beyond.
