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 how 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.
He's going to take you back to the past.
Did You Know?
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
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
The Angry Video Game Nerd
It fuckin' sucks, it suckin' fucks, it fuckin' blows, it's a piece of shit, and I don't like it.
While fair use permits the use of movie music and clips for the online videos, profits generated by the DVD sales have led to James Rolfe removing movie clips used for comedic effect from his reviews to avoid any potential legal repercussions. As such, most reviews of video games based on movies have removed footage and music from those movies (including Rocky, Back to the Future, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street). See more
