    Actually, I think AVGN's videos have gotten better. They're not as funny, but he reviews the games more seriously.

    I agree with everyone else that it's a shame he's inspired so many lame ripoffs, but that's the way it always works.

    I agree the rip-offs suck but..I don't mind the hault in attempting to be funny, just his reviews on games and his honest opinion can be funny enough. I laughed quite a bit at this VB video because it's so true!

    The best video he's done. I hope there are more like it in the future.

    I checked out the Rambo video--it's pretty good too.

    I've watched him for awhile just because I like hearing his commentary on the games themselves--never much cared for the swearing and such (although I did chuckle when he beat up Bugs Bunny). I think his approach is changing a bit. The swearing's still there, but his videos are more like a conversation/explanation than a vehicle to move poo jokes. It's like he's *gasp* reviewing the games. And he says some positive things. He gives the games credit where credit is due, which indicates to me that he thinks about what he says. And, unlike the Irate Gamer (who is gawdawful, imo) he doesn't give us false info and claim to be the expert.

    Perhaps it is too late in the game now, with so many threads about the guy, but I always thought it'd make more sense to have a single thread for him and update/bump it as he posts a new review. Something like "The Angry Video Game Nerd Review Thread." He isn't important enough to warrant an entirely new thread every time he posts some new video.

    Agreed Bangtango. Although he is decent a single thread with new updates makes much more sense.

    Anybody seen his stuff? Yes its tad on the copy side, buts its very good, and not nearly as much cussing.
    While there are currently, and have been in the past, discussion threads about this Irate Gamer ... I ALWAYS have to ask people who think he's good if not better : how the hell can you watch something that - no, not like your description describes, not a "tad" but BLATANTLY, SHAMELESSLY rips off every single thing that AVGN does.

    Everything from his "name" to his theme song, right down to the room that he stands in ... I mean, doesn't that strike you as a wee bit, I don't know ... pathetic?

    It's pretty obvious that he loves what James was doing so much so, that he's hoping to catch unsuspecting viewers that have never seen the AVGN's "shtick" and trick them into thinking that he was the originator.

    There's really nothing more shameless than stealing material from another performer.

    I'm glad he didn't bash the virtual boy a whole lot. It isn't that bad, really. But the "it DOES look like shit" part made me laugh. It almost looked like it was really in that movie!

    Good idea. I did my best to integrate the VB review thread into this new official one.

    This is now the official thread for discussion on all things related to Angry Video Game Nerd and his videos.

    Yeah, I didn't like AVGN at first - but he's been refining his style. Other than the constant scatological remarks, he's pretty good. His reviews are fun to watch.

    And he punched the crap out of Bugs Bunny. That's a plus.

    Gametrailers.com is a "shitload of fuck". It's down! Right at the moment when a new nerd video released! Shitpickle!

    I just watched the latest video. That was funny (AVGN rocks. I was sold as soon as I saw his review of Wally Bear & The No! Gang).

    That's the episode that sold me on watching more AVGN videos.

    I liked the Virtual Boy review but was a little disappointed that he didn't find someone with a copy of Jack Bros. to send to him to include in the review as I'm pretty sure with the amount of fans he has that he could do throw out a message online and find someone with the game to send him.

    i made one being a parody of the ripoffs of people who ripoff James Rolfe off.

    yeah it sucks but there it is. the game nerd was good but lately, meh. its gotten to his head. a behind the scenes and commentary of his old movies? a dvd? hes just not as funny. but i still catch a few laughs whenever he comes out with a new one.

    I'd rather listen to you than the Irate gamer. Even when you're trying to be a ripoff of a ripoff you still do it better than the lot of em.

    dunno if some o' thats a compliment but thanks! theres a sequel i did, but uhm. no thanks.

    the game nerd released a halloween video last year when i had that video on one of his youtube account responses. i made a fake america vs england video, where i was a pretend british guy, he hated it and removed my game nerd parody video off his responses. but in the halloween video he thumbs through his atari collection and sees ET and makes a "hell no!face". guess he thought i was british. CONFYUZING!
