is the best consumer-oriented reviewer there is because despite this being his job for so long, he still is a consumer
. He has absolute passion for his games and he is absolutely unafraid to let that shine through in everything he does. Someone showing you their passions and why they're passionate about it is one of the most privileged experiences we can have as human beings.
He is what we should want to be, inclusive of everybody, always ready to learn and have fun. He doesn't care about expectations coming into things and he feels ready to try everything. He'll admire a shooter for being a shooter, an MMO for being an MMO. But most of all, he's a decent person, he listens to the hot-button gaming topics and is ready to try and understand why some people might feel excluded from some things and why that's wrong. When some of his own fans starting hurling some pretty nasty abuse over the feminist thing Angry Joe asked them to stop and completely disowned what they did, but even that was with the attitude of trying to bring them back into the fold instead of drawing lines and taking sides.
And although he doesn't place himself amongst the more lofty game critics, he listens to them and values their contributions.
But overall it is the enthusiasm which sells everything. The cheesy costumes and effects are great because they're done with love and a willingness to put himself out there. He manages to bring his personality totally into the reviews, yet at the same time he brings the facts to the table and aims to give advice that other people can take.
Ironically, the thing I like the least about The Angry Joe Show
is the anger. Some things don't feel important enough to be angry about. But his anger is actually really rare and when it does appear it stems from disappointed expectations and the feeling that people might lose out on a hefty chunk of their money for this game.
