The Irate Gamer has been heavily criticized by AVGN fans. They often accuse him of copying James Rolfe. Such comments include "he should be ashamed for blatantly ripping off AVGN like that" or "Wow he definitely sounds like a AVGN wanna be 100%.......he sux at this -_-".He was also once brought on to a radio show and interviewed for the whole purpose of publicly embarrassing him.
He also receives criticism for relying too much on special effects in his videos, lack of research (He said that Sega Genesis was created to compete with SNES, even though Super Nintendo didn't exist back then), terrible writing, not going into any details in reviews and making vague statements. It's been about 7 years and Irate still doesn't show any sign of improvement. This is so FUstrating!
There were many videos made on YouTube with a sole purpose of exposing IG for being a hack (There is even a blog called 'IG Sucks' made by an obsessive autist called BatDan, where he makes fun of IG's stupidity and unironically roleplays while he's at it). Back in the day, Eyerape Gamer was flagging all the videos criticising him under a name of his imaginary company called Y2B (also known as Yippie 2 Bungholes).
