I mean, sans being one of the many AVGN ripoffs, he doesn't seem all too different from you guys? I mean I don't like him myself, but I've never either really cared to watch any of his stuff. Would I have to like, see to believe how bad he is or something? This was prompted by that recent TGWTG reblog you did.
Back in the day, it wasn’t just a matter of “AVGN rip-off,” but rather a general incompetence in filmmaking, editing, and reviewing in general. He’d get facts and names blatantly incorrect and when corrected about them, he’d explode or make bizarre explanations about why he did things the way that he did. And instead of attempting to improve himself, attempting to improve the quality of his work… it just began to slide. Most of his side-videos (in particular “I Rate the 80s”) are basically there to LIST things. He will list every figure that he owns for, say, He-Man Toys or the like. The attempts to inject humor feel like a parody of criticisms lobbed against reviewers - random reference humor (the more unrelated to the subject he’s reviewing, the better!), his character beating and berating people around him for no reason, special effects that he CLAIMS take forever to create but in reality are stock effects in programs. His “History of Video Games” series still has yet to reach the Atari 2600 after working on this series for a few years. In fact, he even released A FRIGGIN’ DVD for History of Video Games despite only having 40 minutes worth of content related to it. Speaking of - his DVDs lack special features (or at least INTERESTING special features), contain numerous typos and grammatical errors, and often contained copyrighted clips and footage that he cannot legally put on a DVD. The only reason he hasn’t been slapped with a cease and desist on that front is that he’s seemingly so small potatoes that nobody cares.
Oh, and speaking of “History of Video Games,” the videos themselves contain inaccurate information. Ralph Baer, who created the Magnavox Odyssey, actually saw the video about the Odyssey and broke it apart by how many things Chris Bores got wrong in it and criticized the fact that Bores judged the thing based on standards of modern consoles, not accounting for 1970s technology. Bores then lied to people and said, “Ralph Baer saw my video and liked it!”
His grasp of the English language is also suspect, with frequent uses of words incorrectly or randomly. One of his more famous examples of it was saying Super Mario Bros. 2 was “The predecessor to the original Mario game!”
Now, all of this (and more) is frustrating, but hey, he’s just bad at what he does. I started out as a kinda-sorta fan back when I was beginning because I am not a gamer and I just didn’t know better. But over the years, I’ve come to realize how bad he is at this. And it’s worrying that he holds influence over potentially many others who don’t know any better.
But again, all of this is just “He’s a bad reviewer, whatever.” And if it was just that, I’d laugh at his stupidity and just move on. Buuuut then he crossed a line. Specifically, this line: http://irategamersucks.blogspot.com/2014/04/something-i-feel-needs-to-be-addressed.html
You don’t like Justin’s videos or want to criticize ‘em? That’s fine. Some of you may recall my post a long while ago about the Assface who kept posting on my blog before I moved to the new site and banned his ass. The same thing I said about him applies to Chris Bores - you say that kind of shit about people I love, people who lost the battle with depression and hardship? He can go right to hell in the tiny little bubble he’s built around himself.
people on this website act like humans lack object permanence, like if a situation isn’t being talked about it doesn’t exist for us, like our anger towards one situation isn’t valid if our sadness about another situation is being talked about. that’s bullshit don’t do that.

If he would have never stole from the store, he most likely wouldn't have had contact with police that day. If he would have never assaulted the officer and reached for his gun, he wouldn't have took a bullet to the skull. #justicehasbeenserved
Even if he stole Rellos, would he get the death penalty? No.
Even if he stole an officer’s gun, would he get the death penalty? No.
Even if he punched a cop, would he get the death penalty? No.
Never mind the end of that video shows Mike Brown paying for his Rellos.
Never mind the store owner said there was no robbery and that no one working for him reported it.
Never mind the police chief said Darren Wilson did not know Mike Brown was a “suspect” in a robbery — he was stopped for walking in the street versus on the sidewalk.
Never mind the autopsy report that says he was shot from nearly 35ft away.
Never mind that report shows wounds consistent with him being shot with his hands in the air.
Ultimately, you have one White cop who gunned down yet another unarmed Black man, a police force that has not been at all forthcoming with any answers, and a Black community tired of their children being murdered for shit as simple as walking down the street. That same police force (accompanied by National Guard and Missouri Highway Patrol) has used violence to try to quell peaceful protest.
When looting broke out, the people in that community banded together to PROTECT local businesses from the looters who looked a fuckton like your shitstain self.
Here’s a newsflash, cockwagon: If you stole Rellos, your ass might spend a few hours in a holding cell. You might stay overnight. But you’re never gonna be thought of as a suspect right off the bat by a cop when you’re just walking down the street with a pal. You’re never gonna have to worry if your hoodie makes you suspect. You’re never gonna have to wonder if a traffic stop is going to end in your murder.
And if you go all mass shooter on us, which White boys like yourself are wont to do, rest assured your legacy will be burnished with sympathetic interviews bemoaning how such a good boy went wrong. The media will not pour through your social media profiles looking for the most “thug” picture of you mean mugging for the camera. In fact, if you have a gun selfie, on your Facebook you’re just standing up for your Second Amendment rights. Of course you’re not a thug like THOSE people, amirite?
Also, you’ll be a hell of a lot more likely to be taken alive after committing mass murder than a young Black man who was simply suspect for walking down the street, or holding his wallet, or who fit the description — that catchall justification beloved by policemen everywhere. Or even a young Black woman seeking help after a car crash. If you pound on a stranger’s door, you’re getting a ambulance instead of a bullet in the face.
Take your impotent Wonderbread™ White supremacist opinions elsewhere, son, because I am fresh out of fucks to give and won’t be restocking any time soon.
P.S. Your wrong as fuck hashtag up there means as much as your opinions. I think you forgot how to internet.
