Trivia

The Critic's feud with The Angry Video Game Nerd (2004) started as a joke when the Critic complained about the Nerd's fans comparing them. Doug Walker didn't expect James Rolfe to acknowledge him, but when he stated on his site that he was a fan, Walker contacted him about keeping a feud going. This became one of the show's best-loved running gags, culminating in no fewer than three in-person confrontations between the Critic and the Nerd, and leading to a real-life friendship between Walker and Rolfe.

Laugh at him, not with.
18 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Nostalgia Critic is one of the best examples of "over acting" around. His entire channel is filled to the brim with: UN-funny jokes, stupid faces, obnoxious noises, and last but certainly not least is the stalling. His videos average twenty minutes to forty but if he cut out all the excessive stalling I'm positive it's more like five to twenty minutes. The "jokes", if they can even be considered jokes, are bare-bones at best and not just any bones either, these are the kinds of bones riddled with osteoporosis. I think, that, when I would rather watch the movie/show he is ranti-ahem "critisizing" than his channels content,(or lack there of) it speaks volumes about his legendary incompetency as a reviewer. Like I said above, the only enjoyment to be gained from him is laughing at him and his wrinkly face(likely induced by the multitudinous amount of faces he makes).
