Any fans of this now famous video game reviewer? I have since 2008
I've been watching his reviews since 2008 as well. I remember the first video of his I watched was the Ninja Turtles game review. Frickin hilarious.
I've seen most of his stuff up until about early 2010, which was where he turned to rubbish. His comedy relies in nothing more than incessant swearing and beer-swigging, which, I find, stops getting funny after the third video.
I started watching him in '08.
I also stopped watching him in early 2010 as well.
But around 2 months ago I did decide to restart watching him again. While much didn't change, things did get a bit more funny when he slowed down on the amount of videos he released.
I used to watch him, then I stopped when every video on youtube became a trailer for it on that other website.
I've been watching since ... 2007? I kinda stopped, since he kinda fell off the horse.
Second this opinion. Can't stand the reviews now.
His rob review was pretty good. We won't get many nerd videos for awile due to him filming the angry nerd movie.
I get the feeling the movie may not do so well. I have to agree with a few others, his reviews became a might unbearable in 2008-2009. Don't get me wrong, James Rolfe is talented, but maybe he should end the AVGN, seeing as though he's reviewed just about every bad video game (except E.T., which I'm dead certain that's what he's gonna review in the movie).
That's how I see everything he does just about. I never understood what was so popular about this guy.
When he loses the act, it's actually a decent video clip to watch. But his stupid "Angry" character really detracts from the retro love he is also trying to convey there, and that character is present in every single video he does (it is in the title after all).
I think the only video of his I could tolerate was the one on ROB.
The guy's reviews are pretty funny.
I actually like Rage Quit/LtMkilla's Let's Play's even more.
Been watching AVGN since his TMNT review. Dude's awesome.
That guy's pretty damn funny as well.
I usually enjoy the Cinemassacre Movie reviews more than AVGN these days.
I'm enjoying his TMNT review as well.
If I recall correctly, he's a TF fan as well. Maybe he could review that series as well.
Hes reviewed both the 86 and 07 movies and some old TF games before. All of them are up on Youtube if ya wanna watch them.
I never followed him on Youtube. I only ever knew of his Cinemassacre site.
I'm in agreement, when he drops the anger and goes for a more analytical style, seriously interrogating the material, he's pretty good. The anger is kinda funny, moreso in the older stuff when the games were genuinely bad than when he started reaching a bit more.
The Happy Videogame Nerd is an interesting one, if you want a contrast. He goes for the truly forgotten gems.
