AVGN channels that genuine anger I felt as a child playing NES games. His stuff is more profound than what some people think.

Yea I agree. I love all his AVGN videos, but the original ones he did were the best (ghost busters, castlevania, TMNT etc), simply because they are games he actually played as a kid and got pissed off about, so there is a legitimate hate toward them

Never heard of him and I've been gaming since the 80's. I'm not a loser so maybe I don't relate to nerds

Neonridr928d ago

He wasn't around in the 80s (well he was, but he was a kid playing Nintendo games back then, not making internet videos about those games). He only started up in the past few years.

If you're trying to be funny,you're not.

If not?

I would like to point out that you're commenting on a site for videogame enthusiasts. Just think about that. I'd also disagree about the loser thing.

Dante81928d ago

lol. You've been gaming since the 80s because there were nerds around to make them.

I loved his early stuff. I do find his sidekick quite annoying, that Elmo video was painful to watch.

sonicsidewinder928d ago

Wah, I'd never seen that.

I've found him questionable at times, but man there's a lot of internet hate there.

JohnnyTower928d ago

I had to do a double-take. I thought that dude In the pic was Screech.

Studio-YaMi928d ago

I enjoy his videos,he has a sense of humor that kinda grows on you,he's not a comedian in nature but he is still fun to watch,plus the nostalgia you get when watching him play these old classics.

I wish he keeps making videos as long as he can.
