He's gonna take you back to the past, to play the sh*tty games that suck ass. He'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in his ear. He'd rather eat the rotten a**hole of a roadkill skunk and down it with beer. He's the angriest gamer you've ever heard. He's the Angry Nintendo Nerd. He's the Angry Atari/Sega Nerd. He's the Angry Video Game Nerd.
