    The AVGN is hilarious and I agree with 90% of his insightful reviews. But a lot of retrojunkers are tired of being him used as the ultimate judge authority on what video games are good or bad.

    Don't agree with the way the AVGN on something? Post it here-


    Personally, I disagreed with him during his Spider-man special when he reviewed Spider-man Return of the Sinister Six



    I loved this game as a kid. Once you figure out how to use the dynamite in the second stage (the Sandman level), the rest is pure spidey fun. You fight a great assortment of villains in interesting levels. It looked like the AVGN hated the game because he really sucked at it.lol It couldn't be too hard because I beat the entire game as a little kid.

    So yeah AVGN, I give that Spider-man game a thumbs up

    I disagree with AVGN on this Particular game -

    Michael Jackson's Moonwalker:



    I really like this game. He more or less nitpicked it apart, and did the game an extreme unjustice. This game I think is one of the best titles for Sega Genesis, and a classic that whoever owns a Genesis should at least try once. Great Music, Great gameplay, and great graphics. What more do you want?

    I give this a Thumbs-up!

    Before we begin acting like every one of his reviews is truly what the AVGN believes, please note this part from his FAQ:

    That game's not that bad, you're whining about it, just because you suck at it!

    Remember this is for comedy. Sure my gripes with the games stem from truth, but they are exaggerated. The whole point is to play bad. If you want to see somebody play good, go watch a speed run. If you take my reviews seriously, you are missing the whole point. Think for yourself. I may actually like some of the games I'm complaining about. I only focus on the negative. Some of my complaints may be legit and others far fetched. To this day, I still get long winded emails bitching about my Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest review, describing every last detail why they disagree with my video. Meanwhile, I'm just laughing my ass off. It was just a quick little video I made one night when I was bored, just for a little joke, and there's real "Angry Nerd's" getting mad about it, which is sad, pathetic and hilarious! The same people probably believe that I go around in real life, wearing a white pressed shirt, stuffed with pens in the pocket, and saying "fuck" all the time and talking about buffallos taking diarrhea dumps.


    That said, I honestly can't say I've played a game he's reviewed that I really enjoy. I did see the NES Star Wars in the intro for one of his more recent videos, so if he plans on reviewing that, I think it's a pretty fun game. Definitely understand how somebody could gripe about it, though.

    I disagree with all the bad things he said about Shaq Fu in his Christmas special, I mean thats a great game!

    See what I did there? But seriously, I can't think of one right now. I'll post a real disagreement when I remember one.

    I hate Encyclopedia Dramatica.

    But his article there sums up my feelings exactly, 100%.

    well seeing as how he does it purely for entertainment....I agree with nothing as he's not a reviewer but an entertainer.

    Though his TMNT review was like reliving my childhood and I will forever hate that game

    I hated him before that. I found it when I was looking for a TOTAL list of everything he's ever reviewed. Google said there was one there, but it lied.

    I hated him before that.
    Likewise, I hated Bart vs. the Space Mutants before he reviewed the game.

    See where I'm going with this?

    I seriously hate Encyclopedia Dramatica. What is with that site? It's all trash talk and porn about random nonsense. Makes me sick to my stomach.

    The Simpsons games have a long history of being bad. You aren't breaking new ground. Virtual Bart was worse.

    Virtual Bart was horrible, yet everyone plays it because of that dumb tomato-throwing game.

    Fine then, Back to the Future. Karate Kid. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout. Deadly Towers. AVGN had no influence on my opinion, and probably not as many people as you'd think.

    For somebody who hates so many games, I'd think you'd love him.

    I liked Bugs Bunny's Birthday Blowout, except for the ending, which was bullshit.

    Haven't played Deadly Towers or Back to the Future.

    Karate Kid wasn't memorable.

    TMNT was good, but too hard for people with a short attention span.

    Anyway, I disagree with him 100% about Castlevania II. I also liked Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

    If you want me to take your hate for the Angry Video Game Nerd seriously Chris, please post something else than Encyclopedia Dramatica that expresses your hate. I know you think AVGN is not hilarious in the least, but I'd rather watch a boring review of his a 1000 times, rather than read a 1000 ED articles. Dead serious.
