Chris Bores (born in 1978) better known online as Chris Neo, formerly The Irate Gamer is a gaming YouTuber. He makes very similar videos to The Angry Video Game Nerd, meaning that every review Chris has posted that the AVGN has posted, he has posted it later. Many fans deem this as "copying" the AVGN, which has created much controversy among fans. On July 20, 2016, Chris announced on his facebook page that he will retire the Irate Gamer Show considering Season 5 will be his last.
The Irate Gamer is a video game review series. The titular Gamer is a foul-mouthed video game fanatic.
As CHRIS-TUBE, Chris began changing his style of review dropping his angry foul-mouthed style in his review into a simple one to distance himself from James Rolfe. He also began sporting a neon rave sunglasses and starts naming himself and his series Chris NEO (A combination of his real name and his former modern gaming Irate Gamer show "Irate Gamer NEO).
Despite usually receiving more likes than dislikes, the show has received a negative response from many fans (of very well-respected/popular YouTubers such as the Angry Video Game Nerd) and IMDb critics who claim that Bores plagiarized James Rolfe's style. However, James Rolfe says that anyone who is called a rip-off of the AVGN is not a rip-off.
People also have posted videos of the Irate Gamer private messaging them rude messages in return to simple conversation that doesn't appear to be of rude intention. This topic has been covered, and Chris Exposed, by TheArchfiend, and utuber337.
It's debated whether or not the Irate Gamer said these things, but there is evidence against him that provoke thought.
In April 21,2018 During his return as Chris NEO, CommonNonsenseMedia's "Opening Up An Irate Gamer Documentary" video was received a false copyright by Chris Bores. Some fans were frustrated proving that Chris still hasn't changed. Despite this, fans began giving him a mixed reaction unlike his Irate Gamer Show.
