* In his Angry Review of ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'', Angry Joe [[PennyArcade karate kicks a helicopter.]]
* Angry Joe demands a refund for ''[[VideoGame/SonicRiders Sonic Free Riders]]''...and succeeds, despite video game stores usually refusing to refund opened, non-faulty games. ([[FridgeBrilliance He claimed the game was broken]].)
-->NO ONE SAYS NO TO JOE!
* Getting invited to SpikeTV's Video Game Awards 2010 and obtaining an interview, despite (or possibly because of) thoroughly bashing the previous installment!
** Now while the interview was far from perfect, Joe displayed why he's called ''Angry'' Joe and he took to task the game industry's repeated appeal to the LowestCommonDenominator(though some people didn't really see it as "awesome" and thought Joe was being very unprofessional and immature about the whole thing).
--> "Not every gamer is a slobbering idiot sitting on his mom's couch!"
* Donning his Corporate Commander outfit (sans helmet) and making an anti-SOPA PSA outside of the ''United States Capitol Building'' despite ''snipers'' gathering on the roof as he was filming.
* [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/bt/aj/topreasons/34623-why-we-hate-me3s-ending Top 10 Reasons We Hate ME3's Ending]]. What is really awesome, and [[TearJerker sad]] is that it is not in his traditional [[LargeHam hammy]] performance, but it is completely [[TranquilFury stoic]]. You realize real soon that it's not Angry Joe, but Joe Vargas himself.
* In all his Kinect game reviews, he always have shown his displeasure with the device but in his ''VideoGame/SteelBattalion: Heavy Armor'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ArpWuV_zvo&feature=g-u-u review]] he ends it with calling Microsoft out on trying for over a year to promote a device that is broken and makes games more difficult to play.
* His ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'' review. He points out how the avoids many of the annoying tropes common in other [=MMORPGs=], including grinding, loot, and monthly fees. It's also his longest review at 31 minutes.
* The ending of his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H71FzemwVQU&feature=em-uploademail-new Dragonball Z Kinect review]]. VisualEffectsOfAwesome doesn't begin to describe it.
* Him being in Paradox Interactive's stream of ''Dungeonland''.
* In his Top 10 Gaming Controversies of 2012, Joe gives a critique of the Greek government for it's arrest of the Bohemia Interactive employees under the pretense that they were spies, he points out that anybody that wants a layout of the base they were taking pictures could do so with Google Earth, and berates the government of Greece for imprisoning innocent people to make it look like it's actually doing something.
** From the same video, Joe stuffs his face with Doritos and Mountain Dew, effectively calling out [[CorruptBureaucrat Geoff]] [[SmallNameBigEgo Keighley]] for "Dorito-Gate". After this, Joe proceeds to expose how and why game journalism derailed to essentially advertising for major game companies, all the while [[HeartwarmingMoments admitting that he's just a gamer who loves making videos for his fans.]]
* Though not on his own show, him and the Angry Joe Army taking over [[MultiversalConqueror Lord Vyce's]] ship on WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall.
* Angry Joe's ''Superman vs Batman: Top Reasons Why Superman Wins!'' He shows a deep analysis and understanding of both characters and doesn't say Superman is "better", just that he would more likely win. One of the big ones is the argument that Batman is smarter, he states that he is not, Superman displays scientific knowledge far beyond him, while Batman is more knowledgeable in certain areas. Notably cited; many times Batman survives is due to PlotArmor or bad writing, such as Batman's kryponite ring is often presented as being more effective against Superman than chunks the size of a fist, in arguably their most famous fight, ''TheDarkKnightReturns'', Batman only barely survived even though Superman was holding back, and that whenever they do fight in canon and Elseworld stories, Batman only barely survives or is outright defeated. His top reason, in "Hush", one of the most regard Batman stories, he cites that Batman openly admits that all things equal, Superman would beat him.
* Joe got a ''ton'' of interviews at E3 2013. The awesome factor comes in when (A), he talked to ''Major Nelson'' and asked him some hard-hitting questions about the XboxOne, and that he's a one-man team, and the interviews turned out damn well considering.
** One question in the interview was Joe pointing out that it's probably easy to flip a switch and turn off the DRM, leading to Nelson rudely grabbing the mic and calling out if he's an engineer. A few days later when Microsoft announced they were reversing the DRM policies, this moment was immortalized [[http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BNJr_uKCEAAG2XG.jpg:large here.]]
* He does a pretty good Deadpool impression for his review.
* Just the way Joe utterly slammed VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution. Special credit goes to how he blows his stack with the game's portrayal of women and how they all want to bang the main character... even if it's mere ''moments'' after they've been sexually assaulted.
-->'''Joe''': ''That is '''disgusting, awkward, tone-deaf, shameful, wrong, juvenile, dirty, creepy, insulting, and it's JUST PLAIN FUCKING STUPID!!!'''''
** Also, for blasting the developers for selling it despite being an ObviousBeta (even though the concept of WhatCouldHaveBeen was cool and interesting), and planning to release ''two more games'' afterwards ({{GaidenGame}}s, perhaps, but the point still stands) to milk money off of the "franchise".
** In-Game, he admits that he eventually [[ImprobableAimingSkills got pretty good at scoring]] [[BoomHeadshot headshots]] [[ImprobableAimingSkills on a regular basis]]. This is illustrated by a brief clip of him using a {{Handgun}}, and [[CurbStompBattle taking out 5 enemies with 5 well-placed shots]].
-->'''Joe''': Oh yeah, [[BadassBoast don't fuck with Angry Joe]] [[UnstoppableRage when he's so fucking tired of playing this damn game!]]
** After Demon Joe has a long and rather intimidating monologue about how reviewing the game would destroy him and he'd never review again. How does Joe respond? [[LittleNo "No."]] The unfazed look on his face makes it all the more awesome.
** The end of the review, where [[spoiler:Joe kills Demon Joe a second time by [[MinorInjuryOverreaction giving the game a 1/10]]]].
-->'''Joe''': [[LargeHam I have]] '''''[[LargeHam exorcised]]''''' [[LargeHam the demons!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_QK-lcW8a8 Joe's rant on the technical issues of]] ''TotalWarRomeII'' [[UpToEleven for 30 minutes!]]
** Also showing how the preview of the game, with the designer's voice-over stating that it was still unfinished and would get better, and then adding that he has asked the Angry Army and ''no one'' could even get it to look that good.
** Playing the game for over 30 hours before reviewing it despite it frustrating him beyond belief so he could be as fair as possible and get all the bugs listed. And having the balls to accuse other reviewers of only playing an hour or two before giving it a high rating.
* Given how greatly the BrokenBase is on VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV's controversial content, Joe coming out and saying that GTA V deserved the props for actually ''trying'' to tackle scores of issues most games see as too volatile to handle has to say something. Likewise, him blasting the people who believed that [[StrawMisogynist scenes of misogyny]] and ColdBloodedTorture [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous were somehow MORE controversial compared to]] '''[[WhatMeasureIsAMook straight-up murder]]'''.
** And, while he's made this same point in a few of his other videos, Joe ultimately dismisses the controversy as secondary to how good the gameplay is, and that GTA V's EvenBetterSequel credentials were more than enough to invest full-price on.
* Joe [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MknLARblrDQ absolutely]] ''exploding'' at EA over Battlefield 4's terrible launch.
* Joe [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQfHdasuWtI calling out]] YouTube over ([[RunningGag yet another]]) screw up. The real cake is Joe asking Google if they're going to give back the money that they gained from the Content ID incident to charity if they agree with publishers who generated revenue off of a five-ten second clip. The pause that Joe gives after that really shows he's not pleased with Google's stance... Then after a few seconds, he snaps and calls them out for being a money-grubbing MegaCorp.
* Despite realizing it won't change much (and the comments still throwing shit at the poor woman), he spends about ten minutes in his "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voVpvKlntDM Top 10 Gaming Controversies]]" video calling out the sexist reaction to WebVideo/FeministFrequency, even dishing out a scathing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech near the end.
** And it's so awesome at least part of it deserves to be quoted:
--> '''Joe''': Historically, in a male-dominated gaming industry, has the DamselInDistress trope been used over and over? You bet your ass it has! Would it be cool if developers continued to explore other stories in addition to those? Yes, it would! Does it sometimes make women feel uncomfortable to be oversexualized non-stop in the games that they play daily? Sure! And maybe that's something that you will never understand or even care about, but do they have a right to say something about it without being called a femenazi ''without'' getting death threats or rape threats? ''Hell yes, they do''! And I'll defend their right to do it against ''anyone''. ... So take a breather and realize, it's perfectly fine for women to ask questions, to criticize pointless, exploitative material, and to look forward to more games that elevate their gender to more than just goals and objects to be won or saved, but into legitimate heroes in their own right. And after all that, if you still don't get it, bro, and you think she should die and every feminist with her, it's because, number one, you're a '''''[[PrecisionFStrike fuckin']]''''' idiot. Number two, you couldn't give a shit about anyone but yourself. And number three, outside your ''mother'', you've never had to actually care about what other women think or feel, say a gamer girlfriend, or hell, in the future, your own daughter. Imagine that, and the games she'll play. And like it or not, more and more women are gamers, just like you and I.
** See why this is number three on his list [[http://youtu.be/voVpvKlntDM?t=24m33s here.]]
* In the ''Stick of Truth'' review he introduces Corporate Commander to the [[{{Fartillery}} Dragonshout]].
* Even though Joe loved ''VideoGame/{{Titanfall}}'' for it's MiniMecha battles being blended seamlessly with parkour-style combat, he didn't fall into the "[[HypeBacklash Believe the hype.]]" slogan, and brought legitimate criticisms to [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot it's absolutely lackluster campaign mode]], and lack of private servers or Pilot[=/=]Titan customization. All that said, he still thinks that it's sci-fi action is definitely a step beyond {{Franchise/CallOfDuty}} and{{Franchise/Battlefield}} (in fact part of why he wants more focus on the campaign is because he finds the war set in the game would make for a much better story and setting than the tired invasions of America in the modern military shooters) and can be elevated into the future by it's development team into a true Titan of First Person Shooters.
* Joe being the only one on the TGWTG site to openly praise ManOfSteel while the vast majority on the site hated it and gave valid reasons why it doesn't deserve the bashing it got from critics.
