IG's Fans and Why They're Always Wrong

I wasn't going to make another post until Bores released History of Lies Part 4 or until January 1st where I would give my list of the worst IG/CB moments of 2010. But something caught my attention.

*There was something here, but the situation became confusing so here's a rant about how his fans can't argue*

IG's fans only have one defense. You don't like him because you think he's an AVGN rip-off. Even if you bring up other points without mentioning him, they'll somehow bring it back to The Nerd. It shows exactly how young and immature his fans really are.

Then there are those that whine about the hate saying "it's okay to like both". To those fans I say "your standards are too damn low." You don't have to be a genius to see the gaps in quality between the two. Even if Bores claims to put "2 months of work" into a video, it doesn't show. It still looks cheap, it still looks rushed, and it always looks awful.

I want to see one IG fan tell me why I'm wrong WITHOUT bringing up the AVGN. If you can, then I'll give you a prize. Of course, going by the comments on his videos this is an impossible task.

That's all I wanted to bring up. Later.

76 comments:

  1. Have you seen batdanm? He takes it a notch further. His only defense is that AVGN is a plagirist, and he goes OUT OF HIS WAY to look for similarities between AVGN and...Seanbaby. I kid you not. Then you try to prove to him that there's no proof James watched the videos, and his backup is the dates. You tell him that the dates say nothing, and he STILL goes by the dates. I serously told him that five times, and he finally said "the content proves it, though". Then I told him how I had proof IG watched James' videos (via the apology letter and comments), and then he STILL tells me I'm wrong. Thank goodness we haven't seen him for a while.

  2. Am I seeing things or is that 2600theatari person in like 6th grade?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Your eyes aren't deceiving you, 2600theatari is a little kid. Further showing all his fans are under the age of 14.

    ReplyDelete
  4. *sigh* Its always kids.....speaking of which did Bores stick to his post and upload the vids before chrismas yet?

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'd never thought your claims about his fans' age were hyperbolic, but just seeing how young they are yet how convinced they know the score...just, wow.

    Other than the trailer for History Part 4, nope.

    @starofjustice
    Sad, isn't it?

    @Shaolin Dave
    Welcome to my world! I've been fearing for the future for a good 3-4 years now.

    @2600theatari
    Oh hai, 2600theEatari. How's PokemonTrainerBrock?

  9. In semi-related news, IG couldn't in fact, get the video done in time for Christmas, nor will it probably get done by New Years, or Valentines for that matter. He was at least kind enough to give his "fans" a "holiday treat" in the form of a trailer (which lord knows he loves). The guy can't even create crap in a timely manner.

  10. As a British person named Charlie I would like to apologise to all of you and reassure you that we are not all a bunch of complete idiots, yes Prince Charles is a little dotty and King Charles 1st got his head cut off but that is beside the point.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Eh, Charlie the Unicorn makes up in awesomeness for a good number of other Charlies.

    Except the North Vietnamese Army...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I actually know someone in real life who defends IG because he thinks hes funny (note the person is maybe 11)
    He also claims the AVGN sucks because all he does is have someone dress up as a character then proceed to kill him, completely overlooking the fact that thats all IG really does.

    That's just more proof as to how smart IG's fans really are, either that or how low their standards really are.

    It's a shame that there are not that many good people named Charles/Charlie, especially when you consider that Charles is Teutonic for 'The Strong Man'. Although... Carlos is Spanish for Charles and there is a certain bearded fellow who specialises in Roundhouse Kicks who has that name... Maybe Charlie isn't such a bad name after all. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. gotta love the BIG DENIAL the users who post the IG white knighting comments are on.

    oh hey, even our "good friend" charlie is doing some nice job, by calling us faggots for arguing about IG videos.

    BTW, you think bores will know that youtube got rid of the time limit for videos for everyone?

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Darthgamer
    Another 11 year IG fan? Maybe that's why he stopped cursing and warned parents about M-Rated games, he finally realized all his fans are kids.
    Then again, the only reason kids were watching was the cursing and they thought it was "hardcore".

    @Gatuca
    Bores never had time limit problems (he got his partnership very early).
    Actually, YouTube only gave unlimited time to people that don't have a copyright strike on their account so not everyone got it (such as the main Retsupurae channel).

    ReplyDelete
  16. Jeesh, when you called IG fans little kids... you really weren't kidding.

    Also, remember a little certain comment that IG said to a Sega rep at E3, you know regarding Unleashed and Colours? Just a little something to keep in mind when making your list.

  17. lukestalker hasn't been defending his boyfriend irate gamer like he has been doing for his favorite pass time in days

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, you have to give credit to a good chunk of his fans for starting to wise up. People are getting more upset with him every video.

    Either his audience is just outgrowing the level of entertainment in his videos, or even children are starting to see through his BS.

  20. I have even talked to a few of IG's fans in real life. they claim he DOESN'T make stupid complaints, and every single one of his jokes are funny. I asked the fans why he tore apart contra 3 for having a lame ending and the kid replied "He didn't complain about the ending!"

    At which point I face-palmed.

    Well, that's the magic of today's Internet : anyone can make a fool of him/herself via Youtube, Facebook or whatever.

  22. i saw on the classic game room they reviewed mortal kombat for sega 32X and our friend 2600theatari claimed Mark "ripped off" the irate gamer because it was around the same time IG reviewed the new MK trailer... not kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Shaolin Dave
    Someone should find his address and contact his parents, tell them he's being a brat and should take away his Internet privileges.

    @TheGreatMolo
    I doubt it. It's not a crime for someone to read/watch another's work, it's only a crime if you steal it.

    @joncat501
    Once again, that's the troll 2600theEatari. The one that claims IG is God and is obviously not the same stupid kid.

    ReplyDelete
  24. my apologies, i thought it was the other guy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm not entirely sure how the sockpuppet accusation applies to this blog. Especially the claims that this is FFL2and3Rocks.

    If FFL wanted to make a blog, it would have been much more beneficial to use his Youtube account name, since people would already be familiar with the name through his 'Third Rate Gamer' series, and as a result would be more likely to view the blog.

  26. Anything I can say about 2600theatari I have already said in my commentary, so I won't repeat myself here.

    Bottom line, he is the living embodiment of the IG fanboy: hates opposing viewpoints and can only come up with one argument when challenged by a hater.

    Thanks for the plug, BatDan :-)!

    ReplyDelete
  27. No offense 2600theatari, but your voice is too high pitched to making any videos of yourself. >_>

    Anyway, in my opinion, as much as he steals James' material in some reviews, as bad as his acting is, as bad as his writing is, there is still an appear-factor of his reviews: his special effects. I knows it sounds stupid, but it's kind of like sitcoms with the laugh track in the background, the joke may not be funny, but we still laugh because of the laugh track. I guess people are fooled by his special effects.

    ReplyDelete
  28. So to clear things up all the "2600" accounts are created by the same person? I first had the idea that only one was original and the others were made by different people to mock that user.

    I hope 2600theatari is gonna realize how dumb he looks in his current videos as he grows up.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @HH Kelevra
    Seriously, it wouldn't make sense that we're the same person.

    @SpaceScreaminJohn
    No problem.

    @pohger
    People have made videos where they take one of IG's reviews and add a laughtrack. So we've noticed the similarities to sitcoms.

    @BigStoneRocks
    No no no, one is original and the others are made to mock him.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @BatDan, ah I see...usually seeing many of them together is like watching a guy fighting with his evil clone and wondering who the real one is.

    Also, does it really matter if AVGN really did steal from other people? Nice effort on some people to uncover the "scandal" (as scandalous as Mario Bros. 2) but okay, that only shows us that we have two people that steal instead of one. Two wrongs don't make a right!

    I have never understood AVGN steals from Seanbaby stuff. Most of the same games they both review have very different comments. If he was a video reviewer that would make slightly more sense, but not by much.

    Also, that last line sounds like something that IG said in defense of a hater, that they should stop plagiarizing other haters. Just saying.

  36. 2600 - another pre-teen brat acting all high and mighty on the Internet, without his parents knowing about it. Reminds me of when that spawn-of-Satan Angry Movie Dork was raising hell on TGWTG, always trying to get the first comment (yes, he's one of those "FIRST!" twats) on the Nostalgia Critic videos and always starting flame wars with others when he wasn't comparing alleged "hacked" log-ins to 9/11.

    Pak: We will need a lot more hemp before we're through!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, those IG fanboys really fail. One of them tried to "expose" me with a video claiming that I'm an IG ripoff.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVrvXi1GwMw

    I laughed at it since the reasons for calling me a ripoff are stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh my God, Angry Movie Dork was such a freaking prick. He would make the absolute dumbest comments and then get all pissed off when people got angry at him. He didn't just say stupid things, he said cruel things about other people, and would just start huge flame wars, get kicked from the site, only to come back not learning from any of his mistakes...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh man I remember Angry Movie Dork. He was a total shithead.

    It looks like he's disappeared for now.

    2600theatari has closed his account. I guess the trolls and fake "2600" accounts finally got to him.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Heh, he still thinks you're me?

    And yeah, that 2600theeatari guy is posting on my channel and people are falling for it. Sad face.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I hate Irate fanboys like SuperGGangsta. Why? Because they compared the days that AVGN's NES Accesories and Irate Gamer's ROB review were uploaded… on YouTube. It just strikes me how they don't care how to do research. By the way, I'm busy in Puerto Vallarta and Internet is slow.

    ReplyDelete
  42. batdanm is just a contrarian looking to get the opposing view of everything. He ranted in one of Asalieri's videos saying that it was racist. You could tell that he's gotten bored of just talking about Irate Gamer and that wasn't enough for him.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The weird thing about danm is that he started off with some reasonable arguments. But when he found out he wasn't getting anywhere it dissolved into just insulting everyone. Now it's just gone to creepy stalker level.

    ReplyDelete
  44. @ThirdRateGamer
    I've blocked him from my channel. This a block that deserves it because he was being an idiot.

    @BigStoneRocks
    Wow, that also shows he's an attention whore. Shameful.

    @HH Kelevra
    I remember you were working on an IG Retrospective that would have been similar to RLM's Star Wars reviews. Whatever happened to that project?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've been busy with real life stuff, but I still have what I wrote so far. - I'll get back on it when I get the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Irate Gamer lives in Ohio, right? If that's the case, he gives me and other Ohioans a bad name.

    ReplyDelete
  47. @HH Kelevra
    Okay cool. I look forward to it.

    @Razorclaw
    Yes he does. Sandusky in fact.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What are your thoughts on LadyBuggin777? It's obvious it's a troll account set up to actually mock Chris. What kind of mother would defend her fully grown son? That'll do more harm than good.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm not too sure. If that article about "The Dark Chapters" was right, she's been in full support of his work (or lack thereof) since he was 22.

    ReplyDelete
  50. @TheGreatMolo
    I hate to break it to you but that's not a troll, that really is his mother.

    A while back I PM'd a "wise" source with some questions. One of them asking about LadyBuggin. He told me that really is IG's mother.

    ReplyDelete
  53. @vicviper592
    I saw. If they ever attempt that again, then their info will be released.
    Their trolling got out of hand, especially when they were calling non-caustic reviewers "IG Ripoffs".

    ReplyDelete
  54. @vicviper592 that's pretty funny now since batdanm has been talking with 2600theeatari as internet buddies all this time. Which means the only person that agreed with him was another troll and he fell for it! (and so did LadyBuggin777 but that's different)

    ReplyDelete
  55. batdanm comes off as condicending but he's too stupid to comprehend that he can be arrested for what he's doing. As for 2600TheAtari, well I think all that needs to be done is a phone call to his parents to ground him.

    ReplyDelete
  56. @Vince, batdanm pointing out the ignorance from some people that the info he took from BatDan was old. Conveniently ignoring that he messed up and probably thought he had current information. Now that's what I call damage control.

    I'm guessing he's going to get hacked next, since he is actually more of a stubborn nuisance than 2600theeatari, and deserves it much more.

    ReplyDelete
  57. In case of Irate Gamer fans heres one:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/VaultOfMisfortune

    Here however, here is another video that should spark our attention

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMr4gFEz0OI&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was fake though.

    ReplyDelete
  58. @BigStoneRocks I'd be more than happy to see batdanm get hacked, he's so ego strucken that I wanna punch him in his scrawny face

    ReplyDelete
  59. @VinceThePhilospher
    Wait, how can he get arrested?

    @Truthfulpietro
    Obviously that's fake. It's not even a convincing fake.

    @dhochoy
    By scrawny face, are you referring to his profile picture? Because that's an old picture of me. Seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  60. @BatDan Yeah that one but I bet that he IS scrawny in real life

    ReplyDelete
  61. @vicviper592 Also a shocking fact: 2600tehatari and 2600theeatari were different people when I(like most) always thought they were the same person but they aren't,no lie the truth,the guy who "HAXED" 2600theeatari even said so according to 2600theeatari himself who wasn't lying.

  63. Yes, let's stop talking about the obvious trolls and realize why we're here. To show why Chris Bores is a hack and why people like RLM and Spoony can do a far better job (the latter just released the finale to his FFX review).

    Both videos were excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I saw Spoony's FFX review finale...it was okay, but not his best...then again as far as I'm concerned Spoony's best were his Phantasmagoria 2 let's play and his early FMV Hell videos

    ReplyDelete
  65. My favorites were always his SWAT 4 videos, as well as any of his Reb Brown film reviews.

  67. Didn't the Angry Movie Dork leave a VERY insulting joke which compared him having his account copied to the WORLD TRADE CENTER (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and then left after the flames got to intense?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Yep. It wasn't even someone copying his account, it was just someone with a similar username. My first review for my blog was of his videos. His only real claim to infamy is his comments on TGWTG and a word-for-word rip-off of NC's Jingle All the Way video (which he delted and denies any existence of.) Otherwise, he's about as terrible as badly-made toast and could just slip right into the ether.
