The Spoony Experiment (TSE) is a website run by Noah Antwiler. The primary format of the site is a series of video reviews on video games and movies. From 2010, it has also incorporated some video game journalism at trade shows such as the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
The pseudonym "The Spoony One" or "Spoony" grew as an in-joke among Antwiler's friends, derived from a line in Final Fantasy IV.
The initial iteration of The Spoony Experiment was dropped due to a "generally uninterested public response"; however, it was later continued and this time also reviewed video games and at a more frequent rate.
From 2008 to 2012, Antwiler was a content producer for Internet media company Channel Awesome, with contributions to its comedy review website That Guy With The Glasses and video game review sub-site, Blistered Thumbs; he left in June 2012. In November 2012 he denied his departure was due to tension with other Channel Awesome producers.
Antwiler produces numerous different varieties of videos. Along with reviews of films and video games, he often releases Let's Plays, vlogs and riffs.
Video game journalist Ben Croshaw mentioned "Noah Antwiler of Spoony Experiment" as his favourite Internet reviewer in a 2008 interview for GameSpot. In 2009, Noah Antwiler won the award for "Funniest Person to Follow" in the Open Web Awards. In 2010, Antwiler was one of the finalists for the "Must-Follow Personality" category of the renamed Mashable Awards but did not win.
