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 »

Great show
30 August 2009 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

with the dawn of Technology and the age of computers, it is becoming easier and easier to be famous. Some people make videos of their kids laughing and post it on you-tube, other people dance only in their underwear for the sweet taste of fame... and than it's those who make Mascots out of them self's.

But within the people who create mascots... seems to be an uprising special group of people, those who I would call, Self-claimed critics... People that for some reasons plague a certain form of art industry. Some self-claimed critics rant about movies, other computer games... some are bad, some are good, but one thing is for certain... the internet critic business sure ass hell is growing fast.

I think that it's safe to say that Avgn is one of the first... or well, one of the first who took this form of entertainment to a whole new level. Not only is Avgn well written and funny, it's also well made and all in all just a High quality show (for home made standards). James Rolf also managed to create an lively and remember able character that both has some shi3 a22 awesome punch lines, and a in you're face attitude that really works. The Extra Characters also often play out very well, and most of the actors he gets on the show play their parts very well.

But what relay makes Avgn so special... is that his rage and rants seem natural, you basically believe him when you watch the show, and that something other critics don't have.

In the sea of Self-claimed critics, Avgn is one of the most original, and within the few... that actually have some decent quality. Don't watch crap like Irate gamer, just stick to the original.
