Seriously? I don't understand what the problem is. Yes, you might not agree with his opinion - you're entitled not to. Besides which, I admit that his reviews can be VERY divisive - I still have friends who insist that Final Fantasy X is one of the best games ever made, and that Spoony is talking bullshit on that one. Does this justify the level of rudeness and disrespect that he receives on a regular basis? Not a single bit. Guys, it's HIS OPINION - he can say what he likes, and he at least tries to make a point of knowing what he's talking about before he says it. Just watching some of his retrospectives and reviews, it's obvious that he has a lot of knowledge and experience when it comes to films and games, and while he might sometimes say something that pisses you off, he does actually back it up with evidence. He doesn't just make shit up and pretend that he knows what he's talking about - he does research and then uses segments of whatever he's playing/watching to back up what he's saying. So he's never "wrong" in any sense - he's just looking at the source material in a different way than you. Don't like it? Get off his damn website. And even if you hate how he thinks, there's one thing that has deeply impressed me about Spoony - the guy's damn hilarious. He mentions in his Mazes and Monsters review that he used to take Drama in school, and that really shows - the way he scripts and acts his reviews is actually flawless, so even if I don't agree with the opinion present in the review, his comedic acting more than makes up for it. Spoony is just a joy to watch - Spooning with Spoony practically killed me, despite the sketch not being the sort of thing I'd normally find funny, and his Tekken reviews always make me smile. But the one thing that makes me a fan of his, above all else? The fact that he's just so determined and dedicated to this job, purely because he likes it so much. He gets an inordinate amount of trolls? Fuck 'em, what do they know?! Heart problems? As if that's going to slow him down for long. Hell, an average mortal like me could never work that damn hard under those conditions - he has GUTS, and he's actually one of the strongest, most awesome people I've ever seen. I applaud him. So I thank the Spoony One for being awesome, and I hope he keeps on going for a long time to come.
