    Good story, Not enough for a whole film

    Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.

    The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.

    Good films always raise compelling questions, whether the format is fiction or documentary fact.

    Of all the shows that have become popular on the web, this is my favorite. I started watching his game-reviews when he only had 10 or so episodes. I was hooked immediately. Even now in 2015 he still makes me laugh about the old and maybe therefore nostalgic video- games. The way he makes his video's are addicting in a sense that he is always capable to make you laugh with 'childish' foul mouth without the overacting. Especially in earlier episodes he looks sincerely mad about failures in games. I recommend his episode 'ghosts and goblins' and Buggs bunny's crazy castle for epic laughter. For more serious episodes I would recommend seeing Sword Quest. Don't miss out on CDI Zelda! I am as a Dutchman scarred when I heard Phillips made a mess like that! If you are skeptic about seeing this, take 20 minutes of your time to see an episode an decide for yourself whether it is worth to see his whole library.

    So far I have been watching and enjoying internet critics. Nostalgia Critic, Cinema Snob, Spoony and others. So it wasn't long until I found this guy. Granted I have only seen about 4 of his reviews (The 2 Bible Game Reviews, Star Wars Games and Wizard of Oz). I think based on that I can review this guy's work.The scenario is simple. Take a gaming nerd from the 1980's and 1990's who has almost every game you can possibly think of on gaming consoles considered nostalgic to some. Take the absolute worst games out of the lot of them with bad controls and objectives that either are not clear or completely ridiculous.First of all, his reviews require a very specific audience. If you have never played an Atari, Nintendo or Super-Nintendo games then this will be a very hard show to get into. I mean don't get me wrong. He has clear and concise points that can make up for that and make them entertaining reviews.With that being said I do find the humour of this show a little bit off (out of the 4 reviews I found 2 of them have scenarios involving crap, crap is not an adjective in this case) but some bits were funny like the rant in the Star Wars games review about Darth Vader turning into a scorpion and using the famous line of "No, that's not true that's IMPOSSIBLE!".So this show is definitely worth checking out but only if you have played some form of video games, specifically the Nintendo, Super-Nintendo and Atari. I can see why people regard him highly but as a more recent gamer who was born around the time these consoles were disappearing - I find it harder to get into.

    Angry Video Game NerdMr. James Rolfe is going to make it big time in the movie business. Based on the level of creativity and humor in the AVGN episodes, I am convinced that he will rise to stardom. The show reflects perfectly what any kid during the 80s and 90s felt about video games; excitement and some times frustration about some bad games you just can't beat. Mixed with a perfect blend of humor and pop culture references. My favorite episode is the Sega Genesis version of Michael Jacksons Moonwalker, hilarious! I wish him all the luck in the world and look forward to his feature film. His movies are good and this show rocks! Plain and simple! 10/10!!!
