He's given some respect to the arcade and Genesis X-Men games, as well as ''VideoGame/{{Batman|Sunsoft}}'' for the NES and ''Batman Returns'' for the SNES.

He's given some respect to the arcade and Genesis X-Men games, as well as ''VideoGame/{{Batman|Sunsoft}}'' for the NES and ''Batman Returns'' for the SNES. A common arc in his reviews is him trying out all licensed games based on a given property that he can find, in the hopes of eventually finding a decent one; usually it's [[ForbiddenFruit whatever one is hardest to find.]]

Added DiffLines:
