** There is a strong argument to be made, however, that part of the strip's decline is less due to the strip itself and more to the Internet culture around it changing. The early comics are very much rooted in an [[{{GIFT}} edgy, abrasive early-2000s Internet sensibility]], and while this was the norm at the time, the Internet has grown, and the strip... hasn't.

** [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=207 #210 "The Lost Episodes"]] is a twisted {{deconstruct|ed}}ion of ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'', where Jerry hits Tom in the head with a sledgehammer, [[RealityEnsues leaving Tom a quadriplegic, and resulting in Jerry going to prison]].

* SeasonalRot: The more recent comics are generally considered to be of lower quality. The [[DethroningMoment/VGCats Dethroning Moment of Suck]] page in particular either has the most recent comics, or had those be removed because the troper found a ''worse'' comic.

** [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=326 The last panel of "I can't believe it's not Updated" [sic]"]] combines this with NightmareFuel (the spider-webs imply some AndIMustScream, doesn't it?)

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=211 This comic]] parodying the artificial scarcity surrounding the PS3 release and comparing it to the Wii, suggesting that Nintendo knows their system will make more money if they have plenty of stock, is either this or HilariousInHindsight in light of the artificial scarcity surrounding the Switch release.

** [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=368 This strip]] becomes a lot funnier since the revelation of Pokémon's seventh generation, in which one of the new Pokémon is a ghost pretending to be a Pikachu.

* HarsherInHindsight: A tiny headline in strip [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=23 #26 (The Incredible Krug)]] makes fun of the squeaky-clean [[Series/SesameStreet Elmo]], saying he's been embroiled in a sex scandal. Not so funny anymore after his puppeteer at the time [[PaedoHunt turned out to have possibly been a statutory rapist]] years later, forcing him to resign.
