The Angry Video Game is a legend in gaming but the other day I realized he might not be known by everyone. I've known about The Nerd for quite some time and watched a handful of videos but recently decided to start and watch them all. It's been a fun ride(if you can handle an infinity of poop jokes). They are a bit dated now but they hold up considering the reviews focus on classic retro games and consoles.

Do you want to head back to the past? To see someone play shitty games that suck? Might want to checkout The Angry Video Game Nerd.

I'm just not that big of a fan of his. At first it was an interesting gimmick, but over time the act got old for me. But he's one of the original game reviewers on YouTube, so he does get props from me for that.

I'll admit, his swearing rants are a bit samey. In fact very samey. There are some really fun ways to swear, I just wish he explored more of them. That said, if your a fan of scat swearing in a samey way AVGN 4 THE WIN!

Absolutely. I've been watching him for years. At this point I tend to just not give a shit at all when he starts going into his "I'd rather" rants, because it isn't as funny anymore, but the funniest part has always been his reactions to the games themselves, not the "shitload of fuck" rants.

I agree. The review is the best part, not the parts you mention.
