"He's Gonna Take You Back To The Past".
Personally I wanted to do this a long while then.
One of my favourite past times is watching Nerd videos, I have watched his Karate Kid episode some many I can quote it especially the opening.
Angry Video Game Nerd Is web statical review series were the Nerd reviews games he consider shitty usually the games he reviews are old NES games
As may or may not know the Angry Video Game Nerd is James Rolfe, originally it was just a fun little easter egg for his friends that he recorded onto a VHS in the early 00's which he later uploaded to the internet he initially only wanted to do reviews (Castlevaina II: Simon's Quest and Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde). However they became popular and people wanted more which inspired James to make some new episodes notably his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went "viral" at this moment this video has 6, 387, 244 views.
Its hard to remember how I got into AVGN. I personally discovered AVGN through this site I think people mention it in a topic along with the Nostalgia Critic. At first I watched the Nostalgia Critic and at first I really didn't like him (took ages to warm to his style which even now I am not always keen on, prefer his eariler reviews). After Having my Ears Rape by the Nostalgia Crtic I had my hesitations about watching AVGN but I was curious and gave him a try after a while I was hooked, James style just hit funny bones and reminded me of losing my shit at video games and for him to take and satirize it was really good.
AVGN is my go to when a need a good laugh. My favourite episodes are Karate Kid, Top Gun, Wally Bear and the NO Gang, Bible Games, Ghostbusters and Moonwalker to name just a few.
James has also made reviews of horror movies (they are pretty extensive and non satirical) , old amateur movies he has made even insight into how he makes AVGN episodes and Movies.
So anybody love him or loathe him?
