Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 30: The Simpsons – Episode Review

While today the show is considered long past its prime, seemingly begging for cancellation, back in the early 90’s the Simpsons was the greatest thing on TV, a phenomena that I think hasn’t been rivaled since. I recall very early on being a fan, watching the show every chance I got. Of course, being the …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 26: Sega 32X – Episode Review

Ah, the Sega 32X. This crazy thing was a 32bit add-on to the Sega Genesis which was intended to act as a holdover during the tail end of the Genesis’s life, before the Saturn had released in the United States and Europe. Interestingly, the thing was actually released after the Saturn in Japan! While the …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 22: Ghostbusters: Follow-Up – Episode Review

It’s time for part 2 of the trio of Ghostbusters game reviews that James Rolfe did for the Angry Video Game Nerd series. Part 2 gets a little more in depth on just why the NES Ghostbusters game was so terrible, but still does so in a comedic way. Really, who can’t read that ending …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 17: Bible Games – Episode Review

Here it is, the grand finale of AVGN season one, and his Christmas episode for 2006; a look at a selection of Bible based video games. These games are odd things: these happen to be the first unlicensed games that the Nerd reviews, and while not too common as the series progresses, many of these …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 16: Rocky – Episode Review

We finally come to the pivotal moment in AVGN history where the character James had come up with really became the “Angry Video Game Nerd” rather than “Angry Nintendo Nerd.” While the last episode was the first to use this name, this was the first episode where James reviewed something that wasn’t a Nintendo game …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 13: A Nightmare On Elm Street – Episode Review

Moving on quickly from the last episode, this time the Nerd takes on a game I consider classic, A Nightmare on Elm Street, for the NES. This is another horror movie based game published by the legendarily bad software publisher LJN. The game, oddly enough, was developed by Rare, the same company behind Battletoards, Goldeneye …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 11: Double Dragon 3 – Episode Review

Today’s review is going to be short and to the point. Today we take a look at the Nerd’s review of Double Dragon 3: The Sacred Stones, on the NES. James covers this game directly, and gets his frustration out from the start – the game is just too damned hard, and when compared to …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 9: Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu

James reviews another unlicensed game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, “Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu.” I’m certain this was another game from James’s childhood, as it seems like one of the most random games possible for him to pick and review this early in the series. The opening with James introducing “Shit Pickle” strikes …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 8: Wally Bear and the NO! Gang – Episode Review

A short, simple video this time, the Nerd takes on his first unlicensed game on the NES, Wally Bear and the NO! Gang! Unlicensed NES games always had odd traits about them, and James wastes no time in this episode mocking the “Press Here” on the cartridge. His joke is perfectly valid – not a …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 7: McKids – Episode Review

Moving along to episode 7, we have McKids, a game that really served as a promotion for McDonalds, but in its own right is actually a decent game. Still, the game has its flaws and odd quirks and is just crazy enough to have warranted an episode. Clearly this is a game James played as …
