Angry Video Game Nerd – Season 1 Review

Well, somehow, I did it: I reviewed all 15 episodes, plus two “pilot” episodes of what would become Season 1 of “The Angry Video Game Nerd” . I’m sure some of you are thinking “Wow, he’s really scraping for content if he is reviewing the whole season after reviewing the whole season” but this has …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 14: The Power Glove – Episode Review

Following off the heels of the Nightmare On Elm Street review, the Nerd takes a look at the “ultimate” Nintendo Entertainment System accessory – The Power Glove! This episode also marks a turning point in the series – this is where James last used the “Angry Nintendo Nerd” name that the original episodes had, and …

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 10: Top Gun – Episode Review

10 episodes in already? Making progress, aren’t we? Right, on to Top Gun, a flight simulator based on the famous movie of the same name. James does a fine job on ripping into the game here, and I feel his frustrations on being able to land are genuine – or at least, they were when …

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 4: Who Framed Roger Rabbit – Episode Review

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is an AVGN (at this time still Angry Nintendo Nerd) episode that goes back to the style of the Simon’s Quest video, being mostly game play footage and more classic commentary over that footage. It seems like James had a bit of fun in this episode, more that others – even …

This video marks the first time we see the nerd character, albeit in a sloppy form of what he would become – Not the …
