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

The first two episodes were made in 2004 as a joke under the title "Bad NES Games". Mike Matei convinced James Rolfe to post the episodes online and continue the series in April 2006. 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 »

Gaming and Movie Pop Culture and Humor= Pure Entertainment
20 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those who surfed the internet, then there's no doubt you've heard of the Angry Video Game Nerd.

James Rolfe combines classic Video Game pop culture and an outrageous sense of humor to create one of the funniest internet shows ever created. It's just always fun to see The Nerd destroy and rip apart the games he plays.

Of course my favorite parts of the show are when special guests appear and The Nerd always takes them on.

Now there's way too many good episodes to choose as a favorite. But I can only say this: Out of all the knockoffs that many have become after The AVGN, none will be as best as the original.
