YMMV / ProJared

Go To

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: His Final Fantasy III review has a scene where Final Fantasy gives birth to FFIII, while her partner Final Fantasy II cheers her on. Doctor Mario is watching over the operation, and Final Fantasy's dad, ''Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia" later comes in to tell FF how proud he is of her. The first three are represented by their respective cartridges, and the dad is a book.

  • Broken Base: His Undertale playthrough was this, due to Jared taking a more cynical approach to the game and not praising it like most people. Either people like it because it's something different than other playthroughs, or dislike it because he comes off as though he's bored and doesn't want to play it.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: "Miss Editor", the former editor of Jared's Let's Play channel, is loved by viewers for being the Only Sane Woman and her funny, sometimes sarcastic one-sided "discussions" (As in, she comments on things by adding text that Jared obviously cannot see to the video) with Jared.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In his "Worst Games of 2014", Ground Zeroes is on the list for being an obscenely expensive demo, which leads him to discuss that the Konami's had a questionable future in recent years, briefly praising P.T., and that Hideo Kojima is the only thing keeping the company afloat. In 2015, the company's controversial business practices came out into the open, P.T. was pulled from the Playstation Store and the game it was a demo for cancelled, and Hideo Kojima left the company. Tellingly, the company was #1 on his "Worst Games of 2015" list.

  • Heartwarming Moments: His "Fate of Nuptup" video, which shows the games it went through before ending up in Pokémon X and Y in Pokemon-Amie. A fitting end to the tale of Nuptup.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • When talking about Bombshell in his Worst Games of 2016 video, he claims that it's almost as if the developers had a character that they sold, but realized they needed to make a game around her...which is almost exactly the case, since Shelly was originally going to be a Distaff Counterpart of Duke Nukem in Duke Nukem Forever, but was cut from the game at the end.
    • In his Best Games of 2016 video he included AM2R, a well known fan remake of Metroid 2 on the list, going so far as to say he's unsure if Nintendo themselves would have made a game like this. Come 2017 Nintendo announces an official remake of Metroid 2 for the 3DS called Metroid: Samus Returns, and this remake also gets high praise from the Metroid fanbase.

    • During his review of Drake of the 99 Dragons, he mocks the idea of a character pulling out more guns when they run out of ammo, instead of simply reloading. Cue Blizzard creating just such a character.
  • It's Popular, Now It Sucks!: Jared has this opinion of things in general, which he even admits during his rant against popular Pokemon in his Alpha Sapphire Nuzlocke. Many of his viewers believe the entire reason he spent most of his Undertale review mocking as many aspects of the game as he could was because the game's extreme popularity was what made fans urge him to play it, and he didn't want to give it a chance for fear of joining the masses that loved it.
  • Memetic Badass:
    • Nuptup the Vileplume is getting this treatment from Jared's fans (and Jared himself to a degree), due to her being Jared's longest surviving Pokemon and being surprisingly powerful, useful, and resilient. Jared even adds a figurine of Nuptup to his shelf later on.
    • The result is a Nuptup t-shirt once the run is finished successfully, and the Nuptup Clan on World of Tanks.
    • Tiger Man. Who else can fight an endless stream of helicopters with a machine gun? Who else can keep shooting even while they're dying? And who else jerks off to his gun while shooting it? Tiger Man, thats who.
  • Nightmare Retardant: Not only is Jared almost completely immune to the horrors of Five Nights at Freddy's, but you'll be laughing along with him.
  • The Scrappy: Growrp the Pansage, to the point where the chat wanted Jared to kill it off.
  • What an Idiot!:
    • Many of Jared's fans were frustrated over Jared allowing Chinlo to die in his Y Nuzlocke by not switching into a different Pokemon, even though the rest of his party was at full health and Weplus the Cubone in particular could have easily defeated Grant's Tyrunt. It's generally seen as a Senseless Sacrifice.
    • In particular his absolute refusal to do any Level Grinding has led to his party being vastly underpowered, and causing him to eventually get wiped down to only a single Pokemon. Twice. In the later games, this is caused by his refusal to use the Exp. Share item because he feels it makes grinding too easy, but then lacks the patience to spend extra time grinding Pokemon individually, making some wonder if he prefers the drama of a failed run.
    • In his Alpha Sapphire nuzlocke, he didn't realize that Retaliate is a Normal-type move instead of a Fighting-type move until it was too late, even when there's plenty of opportunities to do so.

How well does it match the trope?
