One of the many Website/YouTube review series to gain its own identity and fanbase, the Wiivewer sets himself apart by not only reviewing only games on the {{Wii}} and {{Wii U}} (which still includes the VirtualConsole and WiiWare), but also reviewing a lot of the [[CasualVideoGame party games]] on the system "as most reviewers won't do a fair review of those titles". He only occasionally does the major games.

He occasionally brings his two sons in some of the reviews, nicknamed "The Little Wiiviewer" and "The Littlest Wiiviewer".

He also has a much lighter style than the more well known CausticCritic video reviewers (which he averts).

See his videos [[http://www.youtube.com/user/wiiviewr here]], with some alternate videos [[http://www.youtube.com/user/WiiviewrUncut here]].

!!Provides Examples Of:
* AccentuateTheNegative: He has admitted in his ''VideoGame/TheLostVikings'' review that he likes to mock and nitpick games, but edits out the bits that are too harsh.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: He can be this.
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: From his 200th review to his 205th, he reviewed his favorite games on the [=PlayChoice10=]
* AppealToObscurity: When Wiiviewr notes that AlexKidd is a playable character in Sonic and Sega All-Star Racing.
--> '''Wiiviewr:''' When you see Alex Kidd there, you know they're scraping the bottom of the barrel.
--> '''Little Wiiviewr:''' Who's Alex Kidd?
--> '''Wiiviewr:''' Exactly.
* ArtifactTitle: The '''Wii'''viewr also reviews games for the Wii U, the [=PlayStation=] 4, and the PC, but he says it is for variety's sake.
* AuthorAppeal: Admits he reviews so many games based on {{Game Show}}s because he's a fan of the actual shows (even though the games based on them are hit or miss).
** He also likes RPG games and states that he's played every Lunar Game on every console.
* BigNo
** The Wiiviewr does this after seeing that the wiiware verson of Netflix doesn't have Series/CharlesInCharge.
** He also does this when he is forced to do a review of ''VideoGame/SuperMonkeyBall: Banana Blitz'' after it keeps popping up all over his house.
* BrickJoke: In the "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" review, he makes a joke about Santa pooping out his presents. He finishes by mentioning that "Thomas's Wii will take a little longer". At the very end, when his logo is playing, he makes a pooping sound and tells Thomas he has his Wii.
* ClusterBleepBomb
* ContrivedCoincidence: This was well noted in his favorite parts review, but the fourth favorite moment was from Lit (the Rotating Light Scene). Many comments noted that Lit was his fourth favorite game that he reviewed in 2009 (and still holds the record as the only Wiiware game on his list)
* DistractedByTheSexy: In his review of ''VideoGame/DragonsLair Trilogy'', the Wiiviewer gets so caught up in seeing Princess Daphne on the screen that he forgets what he's talking about.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In the Netflix review, the Wiiviewr admits to having a secret that he hasn't told his friends or family, checks to see if the boys are asleep, then grabs [[ADateWithRosiePalms a box of tissues from the bathroom]].
* DontLookAtMe: When he reviewed the Netflix service, he said this when his sons caught him watching his GuiltyPleasure show [[spoiler:''Series/CharlesInCharge'']].
* EarnYourFun: He usually complains whenever a casual game forces you to do this, like in ''Neighborhood Games'' where they lock fifteen of the twenty games at the start.
* EasyLevelsHardBosses: Made an analogy of the boss difficulty in ''VideoGame/ArcRiseFantasia'' with a comment about how the bosses will molest you, done with [[RuleOfFunny loads of bleeps]].
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: When he asks his viewers to submit categories for comparing games in his "Versus" videos, suggestions about how they show monkeys keep coming up.
* EvilTwin: Considered for a story arc, but eventually dropped.
* FandomHeresy: InUniverse, with what he calls "Piss Off the Fanboys".
* FourPointScale: Averted. He instead just rates games as "Buy", "Rent", or "Skip".
** Virtual Console games ignore "Rent", since they are download only.
* FridgeLogic: [[invoked]]Loves to poke fun at off stuff in the games during the reviews.
* FunWithFlushing: The Wiiviewer tries in vain to flush ''Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz'' down the toilet.
* GuiltyPleasure: In-universe, he admits that FanFic is his guilty pleasure. He then uses it as a lead-in to discuss the concept of "[[{{WAFF}} fluff]]", which is what he equates the game (a Christmas game) in question to: A cute bit of nothing that makes you feel good inside.
** And there's also ''[[spoiler:Charles In Charge]]''.
* HePannedItNowHeSucks: [[invoked]]Actually acknowledged in his videos. His reviews of ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'s Adventure'' and ''VideoGame/StarTropics'' caused him to make response videos to address the backlash.
** Similarly the backlash from making fun of ''VideoGame/TheLostVikings'' was so great that he had to post a response video the day after the review went out.
* InsultToRocks: He says in his SPRay vs. Truth or Lies battle video that comparing the former game's graphics to those of the Nintendo 64 would be an insult to the N64.
* TheInternetIsForPorn: A variation in that when he asks his viewers to submit categories for comparing games in his "Versus" videos, suggestions like "Nudity" and "Sex Appeal" keep coming up.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Admits to doing this as a joke in his review of {{Okami}}. Amaterasu to Amarusu, Issun to Izzn, etc.
* JustOneMoreLevel: Stated playing ''HarvestMoon'' on the VirtualConsole was this.
* LargeHam: He can be this on a good day.
* LarynxDissonance: When he pretends to be [[SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]].
* [[LittleMissSnarker Little Mister Snarker]]: The Lil Wiiviewer and the Littlest Wiiviewer both have their moments. Especially evident in the "Pirate's Plundaaarr" review, where most of their dialogue consists of them telling him that, really, ''no one'' is going to want to watch him do a review entirely in pirate speak.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His kids call him Dad, and he's mostly known as Wiiviewr; however, [=KWing=] says his real name (Eric) during their dual Lost Vikings review.
* PapaWolf: Attacking his children in the comments results in an instant ban.
* TheRival: Princess Peach. She tends to get really pissed when he doesn't put her as his favorite for something. (the most famous one was the 13 favorite scenes where she lost to a monkey)
--> '''Peach:''' ''Rival? Rival to what!? There's nothing to compete here. That's it. This trope made my list!''
* RuleOfSeven: His shortly-lived 'Seven Problems with...' was part of this.
* RunningGag: Almost every video ends with the game character dying.
** He even manages to die in an ''accessory'' review.
** Purposely mispronouncing Japanese titles
** Calling Yoshi a [[MisterSeahorse girl]].
** His battle videos tend to have one thing in common, one of the categories tends to be Sex Appeal.
* SelfDeprecation: He as admitted to being bad at things such as bowling and spelling.
** The content warning for his "Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz" is that it has some bad acting in it.
* SoundEffectBleep: This is used a couple of times to humorous effects.
** One was used in Klonoa whenever Little Wiiviewr talked. [[JustifiedTrope In reality]], he was trying to spoil parts of Klonoa and Wiiviewr explains that he didn't want the audience to be spoiled about it.
* SpecialGuest: A cameo from his niece appeared in the Barbie Groom and Glam Pups Review game.
* TakeThat: From his 'Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing' review, this happens.
--> '''Wiiviewr:''' Lil'Wiiviewr, when was the last successful Mario game?
--> '''Lil'Wiiviewr:''' Let me see....there's probably one coming out, and then there's Super Mario Bros. Wii... (Super Mario Galaxy 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii appear)
--> '''Wiiviewr:''' Okay, when was the last successful Sonic game?
--> '''Lil'Wiiviewr:''' Uh....(the screen is black and shows '....')
--> '''Wiiviewr:''' Exactly.
** Then he forgives the Sonic fans, and he did give the game a 'buy'.
* TopTenList: At the end of each year, he does a list of the top ten best, and a list of the top ten worst, games he reviewed that year.
** And then did a list of his favorite moments from his reviews. It's [[UptoEleven cranked up to 13 though]].
* {{Touche}}: He thought it was silly to compare ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', as they are different genres. Then his sons pointed out he compared a racing game with a platformer, and he says this.
* TrainingMontage: Complete with some montage appropriate [[TheEighties 80s song]].
* XtremeKoolLetterz: Mocks games that use a Z instead of an S for plural by putting an overload of emphasis on the Z (such as ''Pet-zzzz Crazy Monkey-zzzz''). He finally discusses this in his review of ''Action Girl-zzzz Racing''.
