Hash and funny
And he even admits when he's confused about a game that has things that should make him dislike it but still are drawn to it anyways. Like Nier Automata.
If The Angry Video Game Nerd were to review a Final Fantasy game, which one would it be?
Either 2 or All The Bravest but I doubt he'd review any so...
He reviewed Earthbound, so I can see him covering Final Fantasy VI.
He could also cover FFVIII or Mystic Quest.
Mystic Quest maybe, but I can't see him reviewing FFVIII. It requires some in-depth explanations to explain why VIII isn't very good, and the Nerd's routine works best when the game he's talking about is obviously horrible just by looking at it. He also doesn't seem to be into Final Fantasy much that he be knowledgable on it, I think saying he likes FFVI is the only time he's mentioned the series.
It's hard to take a review from Spoony seriously when he bitches and moans about a lamppost in the background of Zanarkand. Also telling fans of the game to kill themselves, though I guess he apologised for that later.
Also that huge tantrum he threw when people on Twitter disagreed with him that XIII's soundtrack sucked and wasn't memorable, thus invalidating his criticism.
The Dark Id was hilarious with his criticisms. Do G was just a mess of stupidity, but I still enjoyed the game enough for a playthrough. And Chrono Cross is one of my favourite games of all time, but goddamn was his evisceration of plot points hilarious.
Wow, why doesn't he just make a "Kill List" of people who disagree with him on FFXIII while he's at it?
Also, he hates Moogles. Because he thinks they distract from the drama of the story.

Comparing and contrasting Dark Id and Spoony says a shitton really.
Id is now a grown ass man with a daughter, who he's proud of and accepts her homosexuality, he's a proud kitten saviour as well and is probably the most mature ex-Something Awful nomad I've seen on Twitter. Any time he posts on there I always enjoy reading it. If he ever did another Final Fantasy game LP, I'd read it. I really enjoyed his Nier Automata LP since he really had grown up so much since then.
Spoony on the other hand...he's a bloody mess. He's mercurial as shit, he's done nothing about the movie he promised despite the money fans gave him for it, and about ht eonly good thing I can say about him is that at least he's left-leaning. I was still unnerved by his spiel about FFX fans honestly. I think the most recent thing he's done in these years was another Reb Brown review
As for Nerd reviewing an FF game, he kinda holds the series in high regard since he likes FF 6. About the only mainline installment I can see him trashing that isn't 13 is probably FF 2. as in the real 2, not FF 4.
well the common whipping boy is FF 2 but the only truly uncontested bad FF game was probably All The Bravest.
Wasn't NES FF 1 literally broken?
As in, most of the spells didn't actually work?
...Also, was there ever a remske or port of it that made it work as intended?
Kept the spell charges system instead of MP, but all the stats did what they were supposed to, and the status effects worked the way they should (including defenses against them) and they activated because of the things meant to activate them?
Just because it was broken doesn't mean it was bad.
I'd say fan hacks probably sorted it...but more than likely also made it annoyingly hard.
A PSX port called Final Fantasy Origins did. It's the most recent version that hadn't switched to magic points.
x6 If that's the case, then that's his first video in over a year.
Yeah I mean wasn't he doing a crowd funded movie too?
And what we got out of it was...absolutely fucking nothing.
There's also his wonderful Let's Play of Alien: Isolation.
Lemme guess, he basically aped Dark Syde Phil right?
Jesus with all the people who rag on the guy, why do the exact same people then see him as an inspiration and do exactly what he does?
You know how a lot of Final Fantasy game tend to have some random Eldritch Abomination at the end of the game upstaging the Big Bad? Well what if they took a different approach with this trope? Namely like this:
Introduce the villain, reveal he's actually an evil entity (albeit a physical manifestation of said entity), and have the final boss be against the villain's true form.

That's basically Ardyn in XV.
Is that true?
Maybe Sin in X too? You start out fighting the space whale and end up fighting the Aeon's true form, which is more or less identical to Jecht's human body.
Yu Yevon who lies behind that as well. He's devolved into a floating tick thing that probably doesn't even have a mind anymore.
