This isn't really a suggestion or request for any edit in particular, so I'm putting it here rather than on that page. I just want to say that much of is page is pretty heavily biased against Bores. While I'll admit that I'm no fan of his, it bothers me that more of the writing on the page is specifically slamming the guy, rather than just stating the tropes that apply to him and his videos. I was under the impression that subjective tropes should go on the YMMV page, but the main page is littered with people stating their opinions as facts. So should the page be rewritten to be more objective, or am I just being overly-sensitive here?

I agree that the article should be more objective. Even though I have a rather low opinion of Bores' tendency towards excessive joke explanations and the fact that the character and the show resemble AVGN a little too much for my tastes, I really don't think that we should slam him so hard with the article, as I wouldn't consider him an Acceptable Target- it seems that the guy's just still catching flak due to the "It's the Same, So It Sucks!" crowd plus the more rabid AVGN fans.

Aye, these pages do have problems with biased writeups. Main suggestion I can give is to write a cleaned-up replacement page on Sandbox.The Irate Gamer and ask for a switch in this thread.

We need this trope:
  • Dead Baby Comedy: Displayed in the I Rate the 80's Colorforms episode, where he places Baby Pac-Man and then a car directly on top of him, even explaining that the later is "the car running over Baby Pac."

Another trope: Perverse Sexual Lust/Fanservice: In the Neo reviews, he mentiones how in some games, he has some "eye-candy." Evident in the Battallion Wars 2 review.

Anyone try to fix that link section under Hypocritical Humor?
