So I have seen almost every video Bob has made since his You Tube days up till fairly recently. They've gone through a serious, rapid decline over the years. The reason is in essence his entire personality being so abrasively anti-change and pro-nostalgia he can't come to grips with the world having passed him by. He hates the 90s because it wasn't his childhood, he hates games today because they don't conform to his rose tinted view of the past, he openly admits he'd rather watch 80s bullshit than newer movies just because he liked it when he was a kid, etc etc. Bob just CAN NOT divorce himself from his own overinflated sense of nostalgia. More so he attacks others—in what I can only describe as an obnoxiously passive aggressive way—when they choose to do something he disagrees with. His obsession (bordering on the erotic) with Michael Bay and blind hatred of what he conceives as some kind of "hardcore gamer conspiracy" to destroy "real gaming" being perfect examples. The crazy part is he wasn't even this bad in the past (IRONY!). Back during the early days of his lunatic ravings, Bob managed to actually make valid points or employ some kind of empiricism...people who watch his videos now would be SHOCKED at how almost-but-not-nearly objective he USED to be just a few years ago. He would even admit way back when what now is more obvious than ever: that his fixation and cultish love of Nintendo is built on the nostalgic house of cards he and other Nintendo fanboys created for themselves to excuse how they and their pet corporation had so completely and totally been left in the past. I would advise against trying to have an intelligent discussion with him now though. He's more than ever retreated into a world of rose encrusted nostalgia goggles, unable to even voice the slightest criticism of anything he personally lines and dismissing anyone and anything else as "douchebags", "trolls" and "Michael Bay". Also I have a sinking feeling that he wrote his own article, since it speaks of him in such glowing terms and his enemies with such venom, I can't imagine how else it came to be. I used to be, not a fan but a supporter at least, and his earlier comments on videos like Mama Mia and The Revolution were quite intelligent and fun. Not anymore though. Sad really. He used to at least be funny.
