    Seriously dude, just do your own thing. Don't be "inspired" by the AVGN (I'm guessing you're inspired by him since you don't seem to be taking cues from the Happy one.) Just do your own thing.

    Yeah. Kitsune got it.

    I don't want to seem rude or dismissive because I can tell your heart is in the right place, but basically you need to seriously look at what you're doing and try to differentiate yourself from the already crowded Retro Game YouTube Reviewer pack. You're going to be lost in the noise.

    Just my two cents. I think you have talent and an obvious love of the subject matter, but that isn't enough in the already saturated YouTube scene. Sorry dude.

    How many threads are you going to start here?

    And instead of spamming, why didn't you just bump the thread you made a month ago?

    Your videos are horrible. Just spend your time doing something else.
    Also try reviewing a game that not everyone has already played.
    EVERYONE has already played mario kart.

    You've done 4 threads..... you've now got one thread.

    Keep it here, or find another place to spam.

    4 Threads... Maybe he finds inspiration from Sesame Street's The Count. One thread, two threads...

    Only funny part I found was when he mentioned Wario was humping the car...

    You talk too fast, which is VERY annoying.

    Your insults don't make any sense.

    It lacks depth and originality. It's definitely a blatant ripoff from AVGN. Hell, even HVGN is more interesting to watch.

    Oh god. It's the guy that raises the pitch of his voice at the end of every sentence like questions. Or as previously mentioned in one of those other four threads, haikus. Maybe school will help straighten out that weird speech pattern thing you have going there.

    I can't believe I saw the entire Mario Kart video.

    I can do a review too! Just let me write everything in paper and simply read as fast as I can...also throw in a couple of lame jokes and irrational insults to the mix.

    DONE!

    Then why do you keep dumping them here? I agree with Stu that this thread shouldn't be locked at this point, but you'll be tempabanned if you start another one about it.

    These forums aren't your own personal advertising board, they're a place to talk about (mostly) video games. So make conversation, make silence, or make tracks.

    I absolutely loathe, abhor, and despise the few AVGN and AVGN-esque videos that I've ever wasted my time watching. I absolutely cannot stand these little teens, tweens, and twentysomethings liberally sprinkling their attempts at "reviews" with their smarmy, snarky comments, quick-cut, MTV-style editing, "clever" graphics and soundbites, and background emo soundtracks. Maybe it's because I'm in my late thirties that I feel so disconnected, but I like to think it's because I have a modicum of taste.

    The one AVGN video that really boiled my blood was where he totally ripped on the Atari 5200 (which happens to be my favorite system). What a waste of time. He just spent the entire ten minutes or so showing (via horrible acting) how "difficult" it was to set up and how he wasn't able to play any of the games. One of his points was that the system and the trackball ("bigger than an NES!") were "ginormous". How does that affect the quality of the games? He was also (fake-)perplexed with the cord set-up. And yes, we all know the controllers were notoriously bad, so going the extra mile to find a workaround is the only hurdle to an otherwise excellent system. But his whole purpose was just to defame and rip on it. Yet another younger-generation gamer who just doesn't get it. (Disclaimer--I have nothing against people younger than me... just the aforementioned types of douchebags.)

    The video game videos on youtube that I do enjoy are the walkthrough/speed-run solution videos, with straight-up playing and NO talking or cutting away to the person playing it. I get a thrill from watching someone going all the way through the NES Rygar and SMS R-Type and Wonderboy III without taking a single hit.

    As for you, Game Dude, you need to change up your game, because, as everyone else here has mentioned, you're merely aping the AVGN, a very poor template to begin with. And it's quite difficult for us to care about you when you clearly don't care about getting to know us and interact with our community--you're only interested in spamming us to promote yourself. Abort mission.

    I got through half of it. I had to close the window. Too many profanities. Want to be taken seriously? Stop trying to stand out via shock factor, and make yourself stand out via content in your reviews. I don't understand the fascination with these "shock reviewers" Sure the AVGN was pretty funny the first 7 times, but I prefer more substance, say Zero Punctuation for instance. Not to say Yahtzee isn't vulgar, but he uses it by being coy, rather than blunt.

    Things to avoid in video game reviews:

    -any vulgar word used excessively. The greatest comics use these words sparingly or not at all.
    -any name of any animal (We get it, you said Hippo Urine. Ha. !)
    -Phallic references
    -Cuts to yourself. No one really cares. Show us more game.
    -Bad Timing, Bad Voice (Not to say you can help these things, but if your reviews are hard on the ear, no one is going to pay attention.)

    EDIT: K8track beat me to it. Thanks buddy!

    Your voice and speech pattern drive me crazy.
    After watching a couple of your videos, I am left wondering if you are a robot or alien?

    yeah, try not to swear as much. Someone who swears every other word is not really taken seriously. you can still be funny and not swear and in the end, THAT takes more creativity then just saying "this game is like (insert animal here) shit"

    Also, when you constantly say "as the angry video game nerd always says..." or mentioning that your inspired by the AVGN, doesn't help. It just draws attention to the fact that you really are just trying to rip him off.
    To be totally honest, AVGN isn't as funny to me anymore. At first he was so funny...now...I'm bored, Its just the same poop jokes over and over again.

    Except, it's like Youtube is the mailbox, and your reviews are inside. Find a new way to express yourself, cause this one's not working at all.

    RE: The AVGN 2600 video, it's just a joke. He does that on purpose, just watch it as a comedy video - don't take the guy seriously. I actually liked the 2600 video because it was pretty stupid... I found it to be almost a parody of how "modern" gamers would see such a system.

    (For the record, I didn't get to play a 2600 back in the day because I was a baby. I started to play on a NES and aren't into the Atari systems but I still respect them, aheh.)

    And here I disagree with you. While I LIKE watching these videos, speed runs bore me because they're so -perfect-! I like to watch people play like a normal person would, not as a machine. But that's just me, though.

    Isn't it the 5200?

    Anyway, you are right. I never take videos to heart. If I did, I would have hated him for Batman ROTJ. I just laught and think back at the times that happened to me.

    What k8track and GAC said.

    As I've said before, SpoonyOne is one of the few that pulls the game review vlog well because 1. he picks games that no one else covers (Dirty Dancing Official PC game anyone?); 2. he's articulate (ie. he has good vocabulary and he can speak in front of a camera); 3. even though he does the "angry geek" schtick, he doesn't overdo it; 4. and even though he does swear in his reviews, he also uses other words.

    Damn Lady Jaye beat me to it. Spoony One is the best. His latest review about 3DO demolition man was FANTASTIC. I also like the fact his video lengths are out of the mainstream. Most others seem to have three to five minute reviews. Spoony's go on for 20 or 30 minutes, and their great throughout. On top of that, unlike a lot of youtube reviewers he actually seems to prepare and put some thought into it.

    Someone above mentioned that they don't want to see "cut to the reviewer" scenes. I actually like these. Maybe it's because it's nice putting a face to the voice, or maybe it's because most video game reviewers do not do this and also suck. Not a causation thing, merely a correlation.

    edit: Here is a link to spoony's revver account - he actually gets a few cents if someone watches a revver video (instead of youtube from which he gets nothing) - http://www.revver.com/u/SpoonyOne/

    Spoony IS the guy that made me want to go into reviewing stuff. I love his videos... I refuse to watch a few of 'em though, I haven't beaten Fox Hunt or Johnny Mnemonic.
