    freaking awesome! he was interviewed at the last NAVA and it wouldn't be surprising if he bought all the Vision things there or Digital press staff/fans donated them!!

    any publicity is good publicity, Joe's gotta be happy

    yes the Happy Video Game nerd is awesome, His Startropics review was the best!

    I've merged the "AVGN Thanks Digital Press" thread with this one. Thanks for the news! We can keep it all tidy here in one place.

    I hope to meet him again. Now that I've actually SEEN his work, I have a little better understanding of what he's all about. It's kinda funny, meeting the really nice and polite guy at the store and THEN seeing his videos is exactly the opposite way 99% of his acquaintances meet him, I'd imagine.

    Good guy and good work. I hope I can be of further assistance in the future!

    Why do I have a feeling a new crowd is going to come to the store that "AVGN told them to check out."

    We have to not forget... it's a comedy, he created this angry video game guy for fun.

    Each time this angry guy said crappy things about what I consider important in the video game history, even the failures, I feel sorry for him and those who listen to him.

    I have one Intellivision and, of course, a ColecoVision. I don't feel good these days, very busy and still have things over due in progress... and I will certainly feel bad during a couple of days when the Coleco part will came out.

    But again, it's a show, an attempt to make some fun, so enjoy his videos, if you want to, and keep going with the video game collections. Don't feel sorry to have an atari5200, a power glove, a 32x, a sega cd, an intellivision, etc. Be proud of your collections.
    Long time no see. Still playing my coleco games?

    To be fair, he did say both systems were cool for their time, and then he warned people that he was mostly going to be reviewing the bad games for the system. He never said all the games were bad.

    I loved the hat tip at DP. Good video. Looking foward to the second part.

    I think he's great. You just have to take what he says with a grain of salt.

    Exactly. His character is funny. I'm sure the man who plays the character is one mellow dude who loves to play good games.

    I doubt anybody feels "bad" about owning a Coleco or Intellivision just because "The Angry Video Game Nerd" made a video about the negative aspects of some of the systems' respective games/controls.

    Joe even stated in the Herald News article that people have come to the Digital Press store to BUY software that James has reviewed.

    It's fairly obvious that this is all tongue-in-cheek, and the ONLY people that I really "feel sorry" for are those who don't "get" that.

    I believe that James Rolfe is a game collector and a retro enthusiast, and I don't believe that his goal is to turn the gaming world against Atari, Coleco, Nintendo, Sega, or ANY company or system through negativity. He's just playing a character, having some fun, and entertaining a segment of the gaming world who are pretty damned tired of being spoon-fed candy-coated-cookie-cutter-reviews like those found in "Nintendo Power".

    That's pretty clear. I don't know if the place they film is his place, but someone has a pretty damn awesome collection. It's tough to think anyone but a true game lover would collect such a large amount of stuff. He seems to have most everything! ;-)

    Since so many people called out what I said I figured there was no point in Quoting one and I'd just reply to everyone.

    I know and love the AVGN, I tried to order his DVD the day it came out but there was a problem with shipping to Canada at the time so I waited and thankfully I did since I was able to get one of the autographed ones

    The problem I have is that he is reviewing a relatively unknown system and just talking shit about it. I know that he says a few good things about it but most people will only remember the bad. If he had just picked out a few titles that sucked and reviewed them on there own that would have been one thing but he is talking about the system as a whole and is mostly saying bad things about it.

    Maybe I just have a problem with it since I love my intellivision too much

    I felt the same way when he reviewed the Sega CD. He focused too much on the bad games and doesn't give it a fair review. Although, he is right about the design aspects, but the system does provide extraordinary games. (i.e. Lunar, Popful Mail, Snatcher, Batman Returns, etc.)

    Anyway, if you don't like how he reviewed a particular game or system, why not make a rebuttal video?

    See AlphaNerd01, he did a Sega CD rebuttal.

    Actually, when he did the Sega CD video he mentioned that he was focusing on the shit games for it. He acknowledged that there were some classics that people are still obsessed with, and even mentions the name "Snatcher".

    And he admitted when he liked some games with the Intellivision. He enjoyed Buzz Bomber, it appears.

    But anyway, it's quite obvious that his videos are jokes, and if people are using them as guides of whether or not to try one of these games/systems than they have issues. His first video is just him badmouthing Simon's Quest for Chrissakes!

    I love his episodes. This is for entertainment. Another thing to remember is his age and what games AVGN grew up with. Anyone from the Nes generation is going to be a little biased of older systems and vice versa. Its like someone who grew up with the playstation reviewing Nes games.

    well, his documentary "What was i thinking?" on his DVD explained everything he is about when he gets into his "nerd persona". i didn't grow up during the times of the vision systems but im only 26... but i did have a 2600, 7800, and a NES when i was about 5-7yrs old.

    everytime a AVGN episode comes out i watch other reviewers on the net to see other aspects of his rantings and theres. happy video game nerd, Urinating Tree, Armake 21, play it bogard, Irate gamer, ultra neko, oldschoolgamer82, and Little Miss gamer. its good to see reviews takes you back and you remember the memories either bad or good.

    also when the vision episodes came out, i looked up the intellivision and I was impressed with its technology, and im more of a history buff at gaming. i love learning things about systems and companies, i find it fun. this history is full of crappy games as well as hardware

    if you think AVGN is harsh when it come to reviews.. i have one thing to tell ya! Just watch the I-Rate Gamer on his take on contra. he just pissed me off so much on his contra review. i didnt think anyone could dislike contra so much, but thats also his persona "i-rate"
