Additionally games like Ultima Underworld he lists the number of spells as "25" when the number is "40."
Those are just the easy to find examples of where he mistates numbers from other games to make his seem somehow more impressive by comparison. Its also a really stupid basis for comparison even if it were honest. 144 spells? Great, how many of them are useless and retarded I wonder.
