Average John: The Metroid: Other M video is one. Essentially, it's him making shitty arguments defending the storyline, and is mostly screaming at other people for hating the game in the first place. He absolutely refuses to acknowledge any single fault Other M has, calling it near-perfect, and trying to scream over the heads off the people who have constructive criticism for it, turning critics of the game into a straw fanboy. The stupidest point, is where he calls Other M better than Metroid Prime is because it isn't a FPS, which he goes on to say is everything wrong with gaming today. This is a fairly accurate breakdown of Bob's asshattery.
Data Snake: Related: when he said that Arkham City was just as sexist as Other M and the only reason people were more critical of Other M is because it was a Wii game made by a Japanese studio.
Scardoll: His "Combat Evolved" commentary on Halo attacks the series for being racist. However, his steadfast refusal to do the research meant that practically everything in the video was outright wrong or misplaced. Bob managed to misinterpret one of the textbook examples of Scary Dogmatic Aliens as "an ethnically diverse and more interesting force working to a common goal," despite one of their primary motivations in the game being genocide (and most of the races are enslaved). He even invoked Godwin's Law for a half second moment in a commercial, yet still couldn't be bothered to read up on the basic plots for Halo 2 and Halo 3. And what was his deep, dangerous, thought-provoking message? "Racism is bad, m'kay?"
Vader999: Let it be known that I love both Mario and Metroid (Even Other M, to an extent) but his rants on Halo (Militaristic force of uniformed "facist" space supersoldiers takes on ethnically and racially diverse alliance of aliens) is just so unjustified. Nevermind that the Covenant encourages racism and uses it to separate the many races into castes, where many of the races (Hugarok/Engineers, Unggoy/Grunts, Lekgolo/Hunters,Yanme'e/Drones) being slaves. The Only exceptions being the Jackals/Kig-Yar being mercenaries and the Jiralhanae/Brutes and the Sangheili/Elites being in the Warrior caste (Which is as close as you get to being "middle-class" in the Covenant society) and the Prophets themselves (the San'shyuum) being the undisputed masters in the politics and religion arenas of the Covenant. He states how the game is racist for portraying the more diverse Covenant as the bad guys, but then again you can apply it to Metroid and Mario just as well: White Italian guy goes on and literally stomps on a force made up of diverse ethnicities and races to save a blonde-haired, blue-eyed white chick, or Blond-haired, blue-eyed white chick commits genocide on a racially and ethnically diverse cast of different races and interesting life forms while collecting mac-guffins. What he forgot was that the Covenant (Along with Bowser's forces and the Space Pirates) are evil. Diversity is not inherently good. Any organization can be diverse and employ a wide range of races and species to do its bidding, but they can choose to be good or evil, and in the case of Halo, Mario, and Metroid, the more diverse organization opts to be evil. The Covenant want to commit genocide, the enemies in Metroid are pirates and terrorists, and Bowser's forces are protecting a kidnapper and his hold over his hostage. (Namely, Bowser himself and his imprisonment of Peach) I'd be damned sure he would say that about Metroid or Mario's enemies if someone attacks those series for being racist, but not on Halo, despite the premise of all three franchises being the exact same thing when seen from his point of view. He forgets that another reason why Bungie put so many races as the enemy (and probably why Nintendo does the same to Mario and Metroid) is to give a variety to the enemy force and have the player think strategically for every encounter instead of having them all being Elites or Brutes and the player rinsing and repeating over and over again and using the same weapons all the time. Yet he takes such a low jab at a non-Nintendo series just to be a prick while refusing to see the game's context both gameplay-wise or story-wise, accusing it of racism despite the fact that the UNSC characters that Bungie put in have blacks and Latinos clearly being present in the Army, and even Covenant allies in Halo 2 and Halo 3. Hell, the biggest complaint about Halo 2 from the fanbase comes from the fact that almost half the time, you're playing as the the same assholes you're supposed to be killing as MC. Half the levels make you play as the Arbiter, the Covenant's top soldier, effectively letting you see the world from their shoes. This really makes Moviebob's accusations against Halo invalid as his favorite series (which also happens to be on my list of favorites) also have the same "problem" he says Halo has.
Snoop Troop: His review of Book Of Eli. Anything he addresses that is in the film itself can be derived from the trailers and insists on focusing on the fact that it contains religious elements. His line saying that God allying with the Hero of the story kills all tension is especially grating considering the Hero almost always wins anyway especially in action films and in this film there are plenty of plot twists including Eli dies of a mortal wound inflicted by the villain. As opposed to actually having watched the film; it comes more off like he had to review this movie but didn't want to see it so he instead read up on what other people have said previously about it then negatively attacked it with smug satisfaction.
randomfox : A while back he did a two part episode about the Sonic series. It was understandably and predictably somber, and while he spent a good half of it jerking off Nintendo (what a surprise) the real kicker for me was when he started giving recommendations on how to "fix" the series. Out of the two, the one he elaborated on being a reboot of the franchise wherein the suggested plot was a combination of two bad movies, the big moment was his suggestion that they make Robotnik a credible villain by having him kill all the side characters, sounding especially elated when suggesting killing off Cream The Rabbit. First off, when has alienating a series existing fans and going for a sudden grimdark approach ever been successful? And even if you don't like all the peripheral side characters, which even fans are having trouble defending at this point, it's really sickening to hear an earnest suggestion to kill a six year old girl. It was bad enough (and oh, was it ever) when DC decided to do it; there is absolutely no need for Sega to go the same route. Besides, who in their right mind would actually want them to?
C17: A while back people called out Bob for having a massive double standard of anything Nintendo (and Japan as a whole) makes. Like calling Halo crap for having a rather simple story (Pretty Cool Guy kills aliens and isn't afraid of anything) but loves Mario game story (Pretty Cool Guy saves princesses and isn't afraid of anything) as well as above (Other M is Japanese while Prime was made by Americans) so he ends up making a video about things he doesn't like about Nintendo, no just kidding, he spends half of it complaining about having to say bad things about something he like, and the rest coming out of minor talking problems only to end up the praise Nintendo. All it did was prove Bob is nothing more than a hypocritical hardcore gamer who at times makes a few good points.
Mack The Knife: His video on One More Day as part of The Big Picture. First, OMD was three years ago; it's not exactly the hot new thing everyone's talking about. Most of the Internet are trying to move on from it. Second, he says absolutely nothing that we didn't already know, in an extremely egregious example of getting money for old rope. Since the title of the video was "The Devil and Mr Parker", I expected him to comment on the much-maligned musical Turn Off the Dark, or even the upcoming reboot which he never stops bitching about at every chance he gets. The entire running time of the video can be summarised as: "Here is a thing. It exists. Thank you, goodnight, God bless, can I have my money now?"
Jonn: "Magneto Was Right" is him saying nerds identify with the X-Men because they're oppressed special people. The metaphor is problematic, as noted elsewhere, since the average X-Man has enough power to kill people easily. He then goes on to decry "anti-intellectualism" in the media, such as Jersey Shore and My Name Is Earl. Problem is, the former is arguably tongue in cheek, and the latter definitely is. People don't watch those shows because they look up to the characters, they watch them because they want to see the idiots making idiots of themselves. What are fools for, if not to laugh at? And there are plenty of nerds who are just nerds, not particularly smart. Given the other complaints here, I'm starting to think I was right in my assumption that Moviebob is either a jerk, a troll, or both.
Deranged Genius: It's only been recently that Bob's started hating on the 90s for some unknown reason, which has really been irritating me. But then it turned into the most ridiculous excuse to hate on an era in his review of SCRE4M, where basically he ends up admitting that the 90s sucked solely because it was the decade when the first Scream film came out and he felt butthurt that his "special power" of being able to talk about movie tropes in a conversational way was taken from him by this movie. Buddy, if that was your biggest gripe about the film, then why the hell do you frequent this site? Also, hell, let's just toss out all the other great films of that era (Pulp Fiction, Toy Story, etc.), since they're probably just as tainted by this horrible time period.
Ace Strange: The moment where TGO became unpleasantly obnoxious in its storyline was Episode 52: Dark Days, in which Bob brought in some of the most stupid, poorly done plot this side of The Irate Gamer. Seriously, Sergeant Bunnyface?!
Novus Wulf: For me, it's his review of James Cameron's Avatar. The opening is him pretty much insulting anybody who noticed a very glaring flaw with the Movie, and after that it pretty much only gets worse from there, to the point where he sounds more like a fanboy douchebag than a Critic.
Machine Man 1992 Episode 68 of the Game Overthinker, Crass Effect, has Topped "Heavens to Metroid" in terms of wrong headed douchbaggery. The episodes deal with the controversy surrounding the ending of Mass Effect 3. Bob does no research, even openly admitting he has no interest in playing the games himself, and yet feels qualified enough to offer his opinion on what, again he himself admits, he has no first hand knowledge of. He uses ridiculous strawmen, caricaturing the entirety of the Retake Mass Effect movement as crybabies. He also displays a stunning lack of comprehension of the situation and his dismissal of "player driven narrative" shows that on a fundamental level, he doesn't understand how video games work, much less Mass Effect.
DB Ace 9 Aura Three words: Rose Tinted Reality. I had thought that after Retro A Go-Go that Moviebob's video game Nostalgia Filter tendencies would've either be downplayed or completely absent from the series. And yet, he reintroduces us to his "Video gaming had much more creative flexibility back in my day. Deal with it." stance, albeit with the added bonus of comparing the progression from the NES to SNES to the that of the first XBOX going to the second one. The icing on the cake when he says that you had work much harder back then to create characters and scenarios even if it boiled to "cloning Sonic the Hedgehog" than AAA game makers do today. I'm sorry, but that conclusion was anything but "difficult" to come to.
Storm Kensho: What teed this troper off the most about this particular review was that I enjoyed both Expendables 2 and Scott Pilgrim! And yet somehow because I saw this movie, that automatically means I could never have seen Scott Pilgrim?! What?
gameragodzilla: This troper also agrees. He never actually backs up anything that he says, only that he says the action was bad and the jokes were unfunny, something that quite a lot of people disagree with (considering how both movies topped the box office when they came out and made an absolute killing overseas). What is even stupider is that Moviebob claims that modern action movies are better than 1980's action movies, despite modern movies employing Shaky Cam and quick cuts that obscure the action to the point of incomprehensibility. Yeah, real improvement there. Seriously, this troper thinks that the only reason Moviebob hates this series so much is because of how poorly Scott Pilgrim did in comparison, because almost every time he mentions this movie, it's in comparison with Scott Pilgrim. BTW, this is coming from someone who seen and liked both Expendables and Scott Pilgrim.
Infection: If one extends some time to go back into the early days, his review of Star Trek put a bad taste in my mouth. At the risk of opening old wounds, I haven’t watched it again but I do remember how much disdain he had for it, saying that it was an insult to the franchise and how much he hated the screen writing team because of their work on the Transformers movies. So much so, that it ended up negating my enjoy of the film when it first came out. Hell, it came off less of a review to me and more like what some freak Trekkie would be ranting about. When I watched it again prior to seeing Into Darkness, all I could think to myself was this when I was watching it again: “Goddamn, this movie is fun! Why the hell didn’t I enjoy it as much as I did back then?” Then I remembered why. Thanks Mr. Chipman.
Storm Kensho: To start off, I never really cared for Movie Bob to begin with. But his crass and assholish defense of controversial media critic Anita Sarkeesian really twisted me the wrong way. For starters, he immediately brushes off any valid criticisms of her as being inherently misogynistic, despite that not being the case, and completely disregarding the fact that her research is "questionable" at best and downright plagiarism at worst. His sole "criticism" of her videos is that they're "rather dry." Nothing said about her buzzword-filled and inflammatory rhetoric or her intellectually-suspect take on certain tropes and themes, such as her "WTF"-level misuses of the "subject-object dichotomy." And he displays a complete lack of interest in any real vetting of her material and research and instead is just jumping on her small bandwagon while she's relevant. But, I must say, there's something rather ironic about a man who called all critics of Metroid: Other M "Japanophobic feminazi" proceeding to make nice and befriend a feminist media critic who embodies all of the stereotypical Straw Feminist attitudes.
Jonn: I watched literally the first thirty seconds of the video, realized he had spent more time slagging off her critics than actually talking about the game, and stopped watching. The funny thing is that I found the video on Anita's tumblr, where she called it a "thoughtful response", while hastily declaring that she doesn't always agree with him. It seems to me that Bob is in large part a Commander Contrarian; he'll take whatever side causes the most controversy, and thus the most hits. Hence Flame Baiting her critics so they'll yell at him. He may not even be doing it on purpose; he's just the type of guy who sees opposition as validation.
