On this, we agree.

Kind of a shame. Seems like an okay guy. I totally empathize with his position, being forced into stardom by his Dad, having it break up the family, not being "allowed" to pursue any serious acting because everyone just wanted him to be "The Home Alone Kid" forever. It's gotta be rough. I totally empathize.

But the fact he ended up being a junkie "to cope" is something I have no respect for. He definitely deserved better up to a point, but everything after like 1997 he did entirely to himself.

I know, but that's how the saying goes.

Btw, what about the Sixth Sense kid? I know he was in A.I Artificial intelligence shortly after The Sixth Sense, but did he become a big star as an adult or not really?

Nah, last I heard he got real fat and was busted for driving with weed. But that was several years ago.

His sister Emily's the bigger star. She was on Hannah Montana for the entire run, and after that became a fairly successful actress and country singer. I think she does more singing now, but I'm not sure. I saw her on some rerun last week when my father-in-law was watching TV, but I have no idea what it was.

I finally watched that Home Alone AVGN episode. Epic.

I simply have no patience for sh*t like that.
Oh, I am sorry, that under your usual veener of pretentious "irony" I haven't noticed that you've made a joke.

It had started "slightly" differently.
You've said some hilarious **** and I've responded. As usual in your case, you went ballistic like an electrocuted bear and started insulting me.

I might add to that, eventually, when most of the forum was laughing about your butthurt about people's opinion on the Batman v. Superman, you've called everyone "arrogant jerks" and dissappeared, like some wrestler, whose carrier went to its nadir.

Also, I would never attack someone without ANY reason.
And boy, you do give those reasons like a leaky fountain in the tropic rain.

You don't want to talk to me. Or you are saying so.

I'm tempted to watch that video, but f*ck Mike right in the goddamn ear. Guy irritates me worse than hearing the word "Skittles" spoken out loud.

He wasn't too bad. Keep in mind most of the attention was on Mac this time around, and he even got to play first. It's too bad it wasn't just James and Mac, with Mac replacing Mike, but oh well.

Mike is James best friend, so we'll have to put up with him forever unless both break of their friendship one day all of a sudden. Plus, it was Mike who created the channel originally. So it's only fair for James to allow him in videos as well. Took years for Mike to finally appear on camera, though. I remember browsing the ScrewAttack forums in 2006-2008 and Mike Matei being a user there, answering fans questions about AVGN and stuff. For years, AVGN fans didn't get to see Mike's face and only read what he wrote online. I'm sure many wish they'd never had seen his face and let alone heard his voice, but whatever.

Mike is fine as long as he isn't making his cringy jokes.

True, but if Mike isn't cringy, he wouldn't quite be Mike. He's a necessary evil I guess. I have a feeling if he goes, James goes with him.

You're right he is a necessary evil. James and Mike are not only best friends but also work together. Mike probably gets a share from James' profits.
