  • When an early internet reviewer receives remarkable fame, he turns it into his career, but finds that his greatest obstacle is his own behavior.

    This was another one of those videos where I had to leave a lot of information out for the sake of brevity; this is in no way a "complete history." This also was a very self-reflective one, for obvious reasons.

      i mean he did not threaten rape he asked foe connect still inappropriate and he took it to far but i really dont think it was all that bad they are just words at the end of the day action and intent is all that means anything to me

      @Electric Boogie Spoony was a RUclipr and game reviewer, not a comedian. You're definition of "crying" is ridiculous. I pointed out that Fredrik got many things wrong.

      @Clay3613 Its just telling when you look at the kind of people who cry about a comedian

      @Electric Boogie This means what exactly? My comment is nearly two years old.

    I know theres a lot to feel emotional about in this story, but xcom 2012 - a betrayal? really? no wonder noah can't produce proper critique of video games

    21:15 - Isn't he contradicting himself now?
    Ranting on him like a manbaby. Yes, he's Noah ain't great, but by him saying "you're a loser, has a small pee-pee!" does not make him seem the wiser.

    Controversial opinion: I never cared for Counter Monkey.
    My least fave Spoony project IMO. It has its fans but it was never my cup of tea.

    I kind of wish there was more concrete clarification on whether or not he's alive and well, honestly. Considering that last tweet the video ended on, and the fact that a different Channel Awesome reviewer did commit suicide, I am a little worried about him now?

    12:15-13:54 It is always a really bad sign when someone being praised for their comedy takes that time to grandstand about their issues. Using that opportunity to say something sentimental or touching can work, but if you use that platform to call out haters... it always just seems to lead to the end of the comedy, because the person is letting things get to them and taking it too personally, which doesn't lead to hilarity. I used to tune in and watch Spoony's content, but it just trickled off.

    What Lord Kat failed to realize was that perhaps he'd have had more success IF he didn't just up and quit his 'Until We Win' video series. Yes I get that completing the hardest video games is kind of grueling but it was his literally only claim to fame in the wider internet. After he stopped doing it he went back to being a nobody. People remember Spoony, good or bad, you see multiple videos on his rise and fall.
    You don't see shit about Lord Kat unless it's being mentioned along with Spoony. Must be heartbreaking that the only time the internet remembers you is as some pissy nobody screaming into a microphone about how he 'robbed' you of becoming a corporate shill.

    IMHO, Spoony's greatest accomplishment will always be his RIFF for the movie "After Last Season" (one of the worst movies ever made), which managed to make this barely watchable movie not just watchable but hilariously entertaining!

      Let's face it, when you're in show business, you need to have a thicker skin - something Spoony didn't have.
      I'm not necessarily saying he is a good or bad person (that's up to everyone's interpretation, and life is not black and white), just that his behind-the-scenes conduct is too much for me to give him a free pass anymore. I think we all deserve a few "free pass"' cards, but there comes a point where you say no.

    I watched a lot of his videos back in 2007 - 2008 even before youtube was a common thing. I thought he was great and seemed like a genuine good dude. I only recently thought about revisiting his content and seeing what he was up to. I figured he had moved beyond the online platform, I have to say I am crestfallen to see his current state its a real shame .

    People with Bi-polar need to be really careful about making promises on Patreon accounts!! Seriously, it's one major headache here that could be fairly easily averted with some careful self-checking.
    You feel great, productive, optimistic, anything's-possible one minute....then, the money comes in and it coincides with a depressive episode and you can't deliver, and people rightly see you as a massive flake. They feel taken advantage of.
    Gotta watch that shit and only promise what you can definitely deliver.

    I've noticed a life cycle of these types:

    3) chick leaves them
    4) drama
    5) they go off the deep end

    The trend with the people these videos are about is a lack of self awareness and unwillingness to change causes a steady and sometimes sharp decline in career where it seems these guys just can’t catch a break but it’s all their fault. Wasted potential but it happens I guess
