Ever played a crappy game as a kid?

If you've ever played video games as a hobby, chances are that you have at some point picked up a game that made you wonder if it was created by a team of brain dead chimpanzees with hammers for hands. The AVGN has reviewed more than one hundred video games and many of them are bad enough to make him say things like: "What a shit load of fuck. " and "It fuckin' sucks, it suckin' fucks, it fuckin' blows, it's a piece of shit, and I don't like it." During the review of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES he relived the pain of making a game so unnecessarily difficult that it would make you want to burn a school bus full of puppies. He summed it up best by saying: "Cowa-fucking-piece-of-dog-shit! This game is diarrhea coming out of my dick! This game is as appealing as a fucking ooze infested dirty fucking sewer rat shit! I had more fun playing with dog turds! Shredder's my ass and Splinter's my balls!"

To many in nerdom the AVGN channels our rage and disappointment of shitty games in a way where we can laugh about it instead of running around trying to punt babies in frustration.

What makes AVGN so popular?

We have compiled a list of reasons to like the Angry Video Game Nerd.

Reason # 4

His over the top funny reactions:

I mean, when a game is such a piece of shit that he reacts like that, you know you're in for a treat. His facial expressions are on par with Bruce Campbell and who cant appreciate that?

Reason # 3

He has an awesome theme song.

The person on the left is Kyle Justin and he sings a pretty kick-ass intro. If you search his name on the web, you will find his cool music website. Many a dork have found themselves humming the tune and singing phrases like: "He'd rather eat the rotten asshole of a roadkilled skunk then down it with beer."

Reason # 2

He has fought against the likes of Jason Voorhees, Freddy Kruger and Bugs Bunny.

Reason # 1

He can really make a connection with gamers.

In a fair and just world, the creator of the Power Glove would get a prostate check with the damn thing.

He knows how frustrating some games can be and for old school gamers he mentions how truly awful abominations such as the Virtual Boy, Sega CD and Nintendo Power Glove really were.
