Irate gamer a hack?

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/jvKDlz1zLQk&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/jvKDlz1zLQk&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

This guy makes a lot of good points. I've always thought he was ripping off the Angry Video game nerd and this video makes that point very clear. Angry video game nerd is also much funnier then Irate gamer. Do you think The Irate Gamer is a hack?

edit to add. Heres are the back to the future reviews that both angry and irate gamer did:

I didn't watch the vid above but the Angry Video Game Nerd isn't all that funny to begin with.

Irate gamer is a lowlife, totally stole Angry Nintendo's shtick, it's sad that people like that walk the earth and still find success

I think it's funny that people are so upset about this. I've never heard of the irate guy before now. But from what little I felt like watching, it does seem like he's ripping off the nintendo guy.

Yeah, neither one of them are all that clever. Saying fuck a lot and editing in footage from the movie isn't exactly comedic genius.

I prefer Angry Video Game Nerd, but I liked him better when he did exclusively NES stuff. This guy is a blatant (and poorer) rip off. Just like all those reality TV shows.

Neither of them have a Halo 3 ranking above 40 - so they aren't worth my time.

Haha, I remember the first BTTF game. That shit was awful.

With that said, I watched the Angry Nerd video and I'm not even gonna bother with the Irate Hack video if the first one is supposed to actually be funny. The only good thing the first vid had going for it was that it made me want to watch BTTF, which I'm going to do now.

You see that!? These assholes just made me want to do something other than play games!

He is not even that irate, and I can't stand his voice. Nerd is better in my opinion.

That was 24 of the worst minutes of my life. Both reviewers are utterly devoid of entertainment value, and the first guy made me want to stab knives into my ears.

Thanks OP!
