If you've never watched Angry Video Game Nerd, you should probably get out of the gaming category and never step foot in it again.

Spoiler

jks, watching his videos now would likely redeem yourself

Here's one of my favourite episodes:

Superman 64 was a great review, though IMO his best vidya review was the long and meandering retrospective on the classic Swordquest series. That said though, my favorite-ever video by him would have to be the third entry in his own spin-off series, Board James. It's also pretty short (under four minutes.)

It starts off pretty tame, with a concise introduction to the game and a rundown of its rules. Then his opponent rolls in, and shit genuinely hits the fan.



Seriously, the climax would leave me slack-jawed with awe.

I have a Laser Scope and it ain't that bad. The headphones are actually better than most budget headphones out there.

This was always a favorite of mine because of the way all the satanic stuff just comes completely out of left-field and of course the battle of biblical proportions at the end.




I also really liked watching the Castlevania series where he goes over just about every game in the franchise up to that point. You can really feel how nostalgic they make him feel and overall I'd say those videos are easily among his best work.

I like to watch them in order now and again, but I feel like everything really went downhill around episode 100. I think Ghostbusters is probably my favorite tied with Dick Tracy.

He has no style. He has no grace. This Kong has a funny face.

Haven't seen it. I think the series is coming to and end soon though.

I don't really think so, James is really picking up and i think he deserves a bigger spot on the gaming comunity. He started all the Videogame Critic stuff.

I was really surprised to learn that he was still regularly releasing new episodes since I'd always figured that he had stopped years ago. Kinda cool to see that even after twelve years he continues to output content but I would be perfectly fine with him retiring the Nerd. As it is it's been a good long run that I doubt the gaming community will forget anytime soon.

i remember i heard him say that episode 100 was supposed to be the end of the series but people kept asking for more and other videos he did were not as popular so he kept on going with it, it takes a lot of dedication

I wouldn't say he started the video game critic stuff, but he did make it popular on YouTube at least. It's just in my opinion that he doesn't seem very dedicated anymore and he only does it because he would upset a lot of people if he stopped. It's his decision though. If he wants to keep making more videos that's fine.

lolno, all there is now is James & Mike Mondays and movie reviews; he stopped releasing new AVGN stuff a while ago.

Not regularly, but he still makes them. I think there was a new one last month. It was Beavis and Butthead. It wasn't that great.

He is doing his annual Monster Madness again on Cinnemassacre. He is reviewing some interesting ones this year with Tusk and Eraserhead. cx

that sounds like a pretty accurate summary of mass effect, super mario galaxy and terraria.

One of my favorite quotes (about a game that has no pause button): "Could you imagine if you had to answer the door, or take a shit? It's like, tough shit if you gotta take a shit! You gotta take a quick shit! That's what you gotta do!"

His recent Power Rangers video has confirmed by intuition that I think he's better at doing film and TV reviews now. That last AVGN was a doozy.
