    Pretty decent analysis of the VB. Someone should help the kid at 1:50, looks like he is either smothered by his VB or in a coma.

    Pretty cool that he reviews almost every US release.

    I'm very impressed that he got such decent shots of the games in action!

    Didn't realize that you could look into one mono-visual-channel of the Virtual Boy and get full images of what was going on.

    angry video game nerd is a pretty entertaining gimmick. however, there are two things i dislike about his videos, and only one is his fault:

    1) he tends to overdo it with the swearing. i get it, you're angry, but i think saying "fuck" every 3 words detracts from the humor

    2) he has inspired every pathetic geek in the universe to try and duplicate his schtick. the big problem with that is that 99% of them are godawful.

    Not his fault that he's been copied so much. He's copied because he's entertaining. The only way he wouldn't be copied is if he weren't entertaining, and we don't want that.

    Good review. Funny stuff.

    as i said, only one of my qualms about the angry nintendo (or now i guess "video game") nerd is really his fault.

    the video game nerd imitators are THE WORST. it really gets at me when you see some video of some geek, who isn't pretending to be a geek, drones on in a monotone voice inspersed with failed attempts at humor and edginess. it's kind of like watching the obese, acne ridden girl in high school say she hopes to someday be a model.

    again, the angry nintendo/video game nerd is quality...just not all the wannabes

    although i'm not generally a big user of the art of swearing nor do i get much of a giggle when i do hear it used i don't have a problem with the AVG nerd swearing as much as he does. if hes going to be angry i suppose he may as well be over the top. also adds a bit to his feelings of frusteration with some of these games which i can definatly relate to

    Excellent review. I'm happy he didn't just go and bash it like everyone else does

    I agree. The swearing is a bit excessive and when i am just looking for a video of a game, the person doing it has to say stupid crap all through it. Now if it were entertaining commentary then it would be OK, but most say the same derrogatory phrase about the game the whole time.
