The only game to be featured on multiple lists for worst games is Fallout 76 respectively. Because of his extreme reviews, only a handful have ever received a 10/10. So, to keep his content fresh, he goes beyond the realm of gaming and even reviews movies as well. He even started a Kickstarter creating mini-games using Street Fighter characters! As of now, he still posts videos on YouTube, but occasionally streams on Twitch for his fans.
