In this WebVideo series, hosted on Youtube, Creator/{{Egoraptor}} acts as [[AnimatedActor the literal (although animated) show host]], thus making the series what essentially amounts to a vlog of sorts, where Egoraptor discusses several games, their sequels, what their sequels changed, [[Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike what they did wrong]], [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike what they did right]], etc.

List of episodes:
* ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania|I}}'' vs ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest''
* ''VideoGame/MegaMan Classic'' vs ''VideoGame/MegaManX''
* ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania|I}}'' vs ''VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV''
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' vs ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''

* {{Angrish}}: Egoraptor loves to chain {{smash cut}}s one after another, usually when his speech gets incoherent. Interestingly enough, he seems to {{invert|edTrope}} this trope more often then he plays it straight; his NNNYYYYAAAARRRRGHHH[=s=] occur most frequently when he is [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike explaining what a game did right]].
* ArtEvolution: Between the Mega Man X video and the Legend of Zelda video, he got more people to help with animation, and as such appears a bit different, sporting a new outfit.
* CallBack: In the ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' episode of ''Lemon 'n Bill'', Lemon seems to think that Mega Man's shots are actually lemons. Flash forward two years to the ''Mega Man X'' episode, when Egoraptor is pretending to hold the IdiotBall and is trying to figure out the controls. He finally finds the fire button and proclaims ''"YEAH! LEMONS!"''
* ClusterFBomb: The man drops 123 F-bombs by the end of his third episode. They're all here for your viewing pleasure: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qciOI4tkCxU here]].
--> ''"I know you're not a stupid kid, '[[LampshadeHanging cause I say "FUCK" a lot and you're okay with that]]."''
* Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike: Discussed in-universe in the ''Zelda'' video. An in-universe fanboy tries to write a "preemptive counterargument"; Egoraptor throws him out the window when it's clear that he's just being angrily defensive and isn't willing to watch the video. Turns into a BrickJoke during the credits, the fanboy returning to write a ''post''emptive counterargument and Egoraptor saying "you watched the video, that's only fair".
* CurseCutShort: His [[SmashCut Smash Cuts]] sometimes do this, but they also cut lots of ''other'' sentences short, too.
* DerangedAnimation: This series isn't a stranger to overly exaggerated facial expressions.
* DestinationDefenestration: Arin does this to the ''Zelda'' ultra-fan who starts getting on his ass about his beliefs that ''Ocarina of Time'' isn't the greatest game of all time.
* EvenBetterSequel: VideoGame/MegaManX, [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike according to him.]][[invoked]]
* ExpositionFairy:
** Spoofed with Roll. "Mega Man! Mega Man! There's a hole in the zip-line that you" *[[TalkToTheFist punch]]* "[[StopHelpingMe No, SHUT UP]]; I don't ''need'' you!"
** Oddly, his Zelda video barely mentions the trope, despite it being one of the most common criticisms of modern Zelda games.
* FakeDifficulty: Criticizes ''Ocarina of Time'' for being a test of patience rather than a test of skill.
* ForcedLevelGrinding: One of his gripes with ''Castlevania II'' is the need to farm hearts to buy upgrades.
-->''"So instantly, this becomes farming, and instantly, this becomes pointless and dumb![[note]] These kind of things are meant to elongate a game. They are made to manipulate you into thinking you are achieving something more than you are actually achieving"[[/note]]''
* GoddamnedBats: One of his complaints about Zelda's transition to 3D is that it gives rise to this trope more readily. Minor enemies now have to be targeted individually for you to be able to hit them, instead of the "selective z-axis" making it a simple task. This is illustrated with footage of Keese, the Zelda series' bat-like enemies. [[invoked]]
* GuideDangIt: The biggest complaint about ''Castlevania II: Simon's Quest''. Egoraptor agrees.
* GushingAboutShowsYouLike: Invoked. When talking about ''Megaman X'' he can't think of a number three on the "what they did right" list, so he spent two minutes gushing.
* HiddenDepths: Yes, these shows are mostly comedy. Yes, he says [[ClusterFBomb "fuck"]] a lot. But when it comes right down to it, Egoraptor really does know what he's talking about when he's reviewing these games. Sometimes crosses into SophisticatedAsHell (see his "Snack food vs. high class dessert" comparison at the end of his Simon's Quest video).
* HopelessBossFight: Egoraptor brings up that the Vile fight in Mega Man X was used well for the sake of theme, since the player felt Mega Man's helplessness in the situation.
* MotorMouth: Egoraptor tends to talk insanely fast as well, mostly when he gets hyper-excited.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Shows up a lot while he [[ViewersAreMorons pretends to be a complete moron]] while playing ''Mega Man X''.
* {{Nerdgasm}}: One segment in the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' video is "Why Mega Man X is so fucking good that it makes my dick rock-hard!"
* NoIndoorVoice: Egoraptor has a tendency to '''[[SuddenlyShouting START YELLING]]''' at random.
* {{Padding}}: Discussed in-universe. It's seen as a FranchiseOriginalSin to Legend of Zelda.
* PolygonCeiling: Explains why he thinks this trope exists in the ''Zelda'' episode. "How do you take the simplicity of form that [=2D=] allows, and give it a z-axis?"
* PowerupLetdown: The main focus of his ''Super Castlevania IV'' video is that, due to the greatly increased utility of the whip, [[OvershadowedByAwesome the sub-weapons become more or less useless]]. [[invoked]]
* PreemptiveShutUp: The final two times [[ExpositionFairy Roll]] appears in the ''Mega Man X'' review, instead of verbally abusing her, Egoraptor just covers her mouth with his hand. All fine and dandy until you realize the second-to-last time she appears Ego is holding what appears to be a ''chloroform rag''.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Egoraptor was sick when working on the first episode leading to the creation of his animated avatar. He'd originally intended to just put himself in front of the camera. He has occasionally lamented the extra work this created for him in setting this as the show's format.
* RuleOfCool: Lampshaded in his ''Mega Man X'' review.
--> ''RIDIN' ON CARS!'' (cue electric guitar riff from ''Film/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'')
* SacredCow: [[invoked]]Parodied.
--> The fuck am I doin' with my life. I'm harshly criticizing ''Ocarina of Time'' on the internet. I'm gunna get ''[=CRUcified=]''!!
* {{Sequelitis}}: In-universe, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin duh.]] However, despite being addressed when present, it is not the core point of the series, as it rather relies on the stark contrast between a game and its sequel instead.
* ShoutOut: Egoraptor gives one to ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' in his ''Castlevania'' Vs. ''Simon's Quest'' video, acknowledging the game had already been reviewd by another popular Youtube persona.
* SmashCut: As noted above, as soon as the {{angrish}} kicks in, Egoraptor stops it with one of these. There are so many moments of this, though, that it can count as a RunningGag as well.
* StopHelpingMe: [[invoked]]Parodied in the Mega Man X episode, with Roll.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Again, this is what Egoraptor gushes about the most in the ''Mega Man X'' review. Everything is expressed via gameplay, and the tutorial, despite being present, has a [[ShowDontTell very subtle]] approach when it comes to teaching the basics to newbie players, without relying on prompts, [[ExpositionFairy Exposition Fairies]], or anything of the sort.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOC3vixnj_0&t=25m2s scathing one]] to Skyward Sword in his ''Link to the Past vs Ocarina of Time'' video.
--> '''Egoraptor:''' GOD, SHUT UP! Seriously! You want all this attention like you care, like you really gave it your all in a new innovative Zelda experience! But instead [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks you led Zelda into a frustrating monotony.]] You know, what started the franchise was like this sense of wonder, and what has thus far concluded the franchise is a sense of formality; a predictable, time consuming mess that asks you not of your sense of adventure, or even your wits, but instead [[ViewersAreMorons your ability to listen and follow directions]]. You ask of us our ability to point something at something else and then walk towards it. You ask of us our willingness to get another bow and arrow, fight another boss with [[AttackItsWeakPoint another giant glowing eyeball]]. [[SarcasmMode Gee, I wonder how to FUCKING beat it?!]] I FUCKING WONDER Skyward Sword! You ask of us to get a cat from the top of a roof and carry it over to some guy who says "thank you." The Adventures of Link, Cat Delivery Man! IS THAT YOUR TITLE?! What's the tagline at the end?! “Cat’s out of the bag and onto the roof! [[FourPointScale 10/10!]]” No Wiimote motion issues here that could possibly cripple the entire experience! BEST IN THE SERIES! You’re like a spoiled rich kid who gets everything bought for you your entire life, and then when it comes to making it on your own, you can’t take it. You expect everyone to love you because you are who you are - [[SacredCow part of the illustrious Zelda lineage.]] Nothing could possibly be wrong with you! You ‘’look’’ just like a Zelda! But you’re not one. [[SpoiledBrat You’re a pampered, doughy snob wearing nice clothes expecting to graduate scot-free because your daddy is an alum]]. Why would you need to improve? Why would you need to get any better? [[CriticalDissonance Everyone just agrees with your shitty ideas because you're a Zelda.]] [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK YOU Skyward Sword. FUCK YOU!]]
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Played with in-universe. While this is a common complaint, it gets played with in that it's not the change that's the problem, it's failure to adapt to the change made.
* ViewersAreMorons: Egoraptor explains how the modern game developers portray this with tutorials for obvious things in the ''Mega Man X'' episode.
** He pretends to be a complete moron ([[TakeThat like modern game developers assume]]).
** [[invoked]]He also points out the UnfortunateImplications that as games have become more and more 'adult' in tone (i.e. BloodierAndGorier) the tutorials have treated the gamers more and more like complete morons incapable of thinking for themselves.
''...Wait '''that was it!?'''''
