These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Joueur du Grenier
Award Snub: One of the many people not even nominated for the Web Comedy Awards in 2014.
Bizarro Episode: The Takeshi's Challenge episode features a different opening, an opening narration in Fred's… approximate Japanese that has nothing to do with the game, a frantic pacing, out-of-nowhere references and a very wacky tone, in line with the game itself.
"Those drawings are as bad as my little sister's.' And my little sister is DEAD! I KILLED her because her drawings SUCKED!"
Seb as the Joker cutting someone's fingers off... and replacing them with sausages.
Crowning Music of Awesome: Many different kinds of music are used during his episodes, which always leads to commenters asking "What is the music from this part from?" Fortunately, nowadays the music shows up in the credits.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Since he started to appear in the videos, Seb has become just as popular as Fred, if not more.
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Sort of. In the Raid 2020 review, the Joueur du Grenier makes fun of the game catchphrase ("Winner fight drugs") by showing a photograph of Lance Armstrong while saying "except him". Armstrong was stripped of his winning titles on the Tour de France (because of doping and after a very long suspicion) a few weeks after the release of the video.
Gateway Series: His original intention for making the show, because he wanted to introduce more people to AVGN and the kind. So far, it seems like he's succeeded as long as the French are concerned.
In-Universe example in the Valentine's Day special, with 177 featuring a young woman in a short skirt and scared expression, chased by a man with no music but the sound of running. When Seb points out that 177 is the article of Japanese law that deals with rape, Fred can't yank the plug out fast enough.
They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The Zelda-themed Papy Grenier received a lot of criticisms from fans since instead of old Papy Grenier telling a story, it is a fake news report broadcasted on television.
They Copied It, So It Sucks: When his first videos appeared, many viewers accused him of being an AVGN knockoff. It didn't help he copied a bit too much of Rolfe's trademarks... but now he has Grown the Beard (not literally, he already has one) and many French gamers prefer him over AVGN (and that doesn't include the language barrier).
It's worth mentioning that at first he made sure not to review games already reviewed by Rolfe, a decision that has helped him avoid this trope for the most part. So far, the games he reviewed that Rolfe had reviewed before are justified by being as infamous in France as they were in the US back in the day. An exception is The Legend of Zelda: Faces of Evil, which was highly requested by the viewers. While reviewing these games, he avoided the issues Rolfe had covered as much as he could (the fact that AVGN didn't get too far in some of these games helped a lot, since JdG had a lot to say about these games' later levels). Also, some of the more obscure games (like Dark Castle and Barbie) were reviewed by JdG long before AVGN got to them.
