Default Angry Video Game Nerd

Anybody ever watch some of his videos? If you grew up in the 8bit era (and before) he has some very funny 'reviews' of the old crappy games from that time.

Some of my favorites:

Hydlide (yes, I owned this POS )
http://www.gametrailers.com/video/an...ewattack/60959

Ducktails (Actually a good game, but funny review)/B]
http://www.gametrailers.com/user-mov...deo-game/57680

Superman 64
http://www.gametrailers.com/video/an...ewattack/35929

Deadly Towers
http://www.gametrailers.com/video/an...ewattack/38566

Bible Games
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkNvQYiM6bw

All his videos:

Check them out, pretty funny stuff. A lot of them deal with Atari, and reveiwing the actual hardware like the zapper, and stuff.

OMG I watched Hydlide and Bible Games. 30 minutes in total ... but totally worth.

Will try the other ones later ... have the urge to submit more Ideas and Feedback after watching these classic games. GD has to go back to the roots.

Yeah he has something like 50 or so videos in total...they're all pretty much great though. Me and a few guys from work watch a couple episodes a day since we found out about them

His "review" on Atari-porn-games was one of the wierdest episodes I ever watched.

Yeah that one was funny too...actually really funny.

Did you watch his review of "Plumbers don't wear ties"?

I honestly haven't. Can't watch more than one or two of his episodes without getting the real urge to destroy some bad games
But I promise to set this episode on my list of "must-see-episodes"

I feel he makes two very distinct type of videos. The ones where he rants about something that he has a genuine interest or history with, and the ones where he fights bugs bunny and squeezes chocolate peanut butter onto the game from off-frame accompanied by farting noises. I really prefer the former ones a great deal.

If you like that sorta stuff, I also recommend The spoony experiment. I don't think any of them came "first" and think they emerged independently, but I enjoy Spoony's videos a little bit more for the same reason I like some of avgn's videos better than others.

Spoony is more about culture and media in general so there's a ton of stuff to sift though, but most of his game stuff is here.

I had forgotten about this guy. I used to watch his videos all the time. Thanks for bringing them back to my memory. In some ways he reminds me a lot of Zero Punctuation.
