Storyline

A series about a serious video game fan who owns almost every single game and console in the world. He goes by the name Angry Video Game Nerd, cause he's always angry when it comes to playing games that don't hold up well to their expectations. Wether it's games that have bad control scheme, unusual use of the buttons on the control, unfinished graphics, bad layouts of a level, or the kind that are too hard for an average player to play. He plays all of those type of games to show the other gamers out there just had bad they are. While the only way to find these bad game more tolerable to play the Nerd would either make fun of the game or curse constantly when struggling to play them. Written by J LeGault

Trivia

In the third Nerd's Game Room there is a door that is next to the stair case and the closet. That door leads to the studio space where the green screen filming takes place. It's also the area where James keeps extra copies of games he ended up receiving from donations. See more »

Goofs

If you look at the Rolling Rock bottle in some episodes, you can clearly see that beer is not in the bottle, but instead water as the liquid in the bottle isn't dark enough to be the beer. See more »

One of the funniest shows i've seen!
14 May 2008 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

i may be easily amused, but this is awesome!

The acting is great, the humor is perfect!

and of course the special-effects in the later episodes are great for an amateur (although i find it a little wrong calling him an amateur).

It's also interesting to look at bad old games.

and you've got to love the theme song! great work by Kyle Justin.

the guest appearances are funny as s**t! most of them are by Mike Matei.

i recommend this to everyone with a sense of humor.

and i don't think i'm exaggerating when i'm giving it a 10/10. a must see.
