Just Too Rude To Viewers
I'll be the first to say Spoony is a very funny guy. His lets plays are hilarious, and his performances in the crossovers are great. Here's my problem with the guy though. If he doesn't like something and finds out someone does, he will insult the game/movie/band even further, insult all fans who agree with the original, and not try to pass it off as sarcasm or dark comedy. Not all are as bad as 'Anyone who likes FFX must die', but let me give some examples. In one review of Guitar Hero 5, he mentions the song Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down and says its a bad song. That's his opinion, that's fine. He gets the song name wrong and someone corrects him and says they like the band, so in a note under the video he says '3 Doors Down and their fans can lick my fart-hole'. Recently on twitter he says he found Pokemon Heartgold boring. Again, that's fine. It's his opinion. Fans said they liked it, and he told them to 'suck his pokeballs'. He's a troll of the worst kind, he seems to purposefully make hurtful comments about anyone he can for the lulz, and doesn't care. He has stated several times that his opinions are right and yours are wrong. We understand not everyone likes JRP Gs
, or anime, or horror movies; but he doesn't and he would punch you in the face for liking them if he could. He can be so funny, but all it takes is one horrific mention of how Xenosaga was a piece of shit or that Transformers movie you genuinely enjoy that will start staining your opinion of him, and it'll just keep getting darker.

Because people only like it when it's someone else getting bitched at.

At #3 But you watch the guy to see him make fun of games and movies, not the very fans that are watching the videos. That's my problem with it.

If you are really so sensitive you can't deal with someone making fun of you in-between wearing the sillyest costumes on gods green earth to do a skit about kicking himself in the nuts, then I advise you to stay off the internet.

I still think he crosses the line. Instead of focusing on the WORK being reviewed, he turns his comments onto the AUDIENCE. Which is too bad, because I actually like a lot of his stuff unlike, say, Distressed Watcher, who is a talentless moron with an ego. Spoony is becoming more like him and needs to just step back or something. Maybe Linkara can talk some sense into him...

I suppose it would be difficult to focus on commenting on the work when there's so much more juicy things to say about the audience.

Except that's not what a reviewer is supposed to do. It basically devolves into an extended ad hominem. "If you like X, you suck!" instead of "I don't like X and here are my reasons." There are quite a few things I dislike rather intensely, but (with few exceptions) I don't extend that dislike to those whose aesthetic sensibilities are different from my own.
