Not at all what I meant.Well if you want people to understand you correctly, you might want to use more than vague one-liners like that.
Also, using the quote button is quite handy as well sometimes, because now I'm not sure if it was me or delirium who provoked that reaction...

Whoever is comparing Spoony to the Nerd needs to shut the fuck up.Of course they will get compared. AVGN was the first online angry video game reviewer making videos. Spoony was obviously inspired by him., he even mentions AVGN in the bayou bill review.
You see, the issue there isn't the fact that they're being compared, it the fact that they are being compared in a completely misguided fashion.
Spoony mentioned the Nerd in Bayou Billy, because that was his very first game review, before he ever thought of taking on the job of doing this gig of his.
The thing that got my panties in a bunch was whoever called spoony an AVGN rip off.
Let me count the ways to why that is a highly immature, uninformed and an overall stupid claim.
Jame Rofle has more roles than just the Nerd, which is only his most popular side project, he makes (made) 2 episodes a month consisting of a uniform fashion of playing a game, blending a professional-esque description of the game, some useful fun facts, bitching about how shitty it is and the complimentary, "I'd rather *insert profane and disgusting action here* than play this game".
That's AVGN in a nutshell.
Noel is spoony, it is his alias and his only real project, his videos come on pretty much a 'whenever the hell I feel like it' basis, his routine shares similar aspect but is different in it's entirety, reach the same ends through different means, he goes on far more in depth rants on a lot of game aspect and in most cases plays the game to the end. His videos consist of sub-series that go off on their own tangent and he reviews movies as well as shitty games, and the shitty games he reviews almost always go nowhere near the nerd's domain of conventional video games. He also does LPs, and Vlogs, providing more content, and in each and every video, his humor consist of his own original material.
And that's the secret phrase that exempt Spoony from ever qualifying to be a Nerd ripoff.
He has his own material.
This isn't something fundamentally special, but he's a whole hell of a lot better than actual Nerd ripoffs that don't really need to be called out on their shame.
They are, in a sense anger themed game reviewers, hence why the comparisons are bound to happen, but they have their own separate domains and rarely blend between them, they have their own material and their own routines and their own gimmicks, both likable and unlikable.
They both have had their good reviews, their great reviews and their stuff that was honestly hard to sit through.
But they are different.
If you don't like Spoony, that's fine, I don't care, but it's an accurate imitation of a lobotomized fucking retard to even imply that Spoony is an AVGN rip off.
They are the same in theme, but their methods are nothing alike. Just look at their Street Fighter 2010 reviews.
