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

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 »

Something spectacular has emerged from Philadelphia...
16 June 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you haven't seen the outrageous antics of, as the memorable theme song denounces, "the angriest gamer you've ever heard," then you've fallen way too far off of the radar. On a quest to permanently rape and pillage all of the "shitty games" in his path, the Nerd also happens to be a comic genius, which makes for a fantastic amalgam of crap, and laughing about crap. What at first may come across as a simple usage of cuss words and toilet humor will quickly have you laughing so hard you'd wished you'd never heard of him in the first place... No wait... That's bullshit...

The games are bad, the between-the-lines references are cool, and a plethora of pop-culture characters and always riveting special effects littered throughout each and every episode will have you wishing that you'd owned some of these atrocious Nintendo (and other console) titles so you could laugh even more. The series is so damn perfect and original, that it's been copied and imitated (never topped by far) by countless individuals (it makes me so damn... Irate... That many of these imitators give him no credit...) Unless you're as tightly wound as an anime turd, you will enjoy AVGN. You don't have to be a gamer to connect with your inner child, which is essentially the effect that the show has, which, I might add, it pulls off extremely well.

So put that game controller down, sit back, and watch keenly as James Rolfe takes you back to the past, to examine the ultimate travesties of the video game market.
