    I must say, next to the Nostalgia Critic, The Angry Video Game Nerd/James Rolfe is the funniest reviewer that ever existed.

    Does anyone else share this opinion? And what is your favorite AVGN episode? I persokally like Moonwalker.

    I've been a fan from early on. I love all the videos though sometimes the humor gets a little goofy and out-there. I bought his DVDs and am currently waiting for the 5th volume to come in the mail. I'm a retro-game collector so I was attracted to his videos early on (along with Pat the NES punk and most of the guys on RetrowareTV). I've also enjoyed his monster madness review marathons in October and his Board James reviews as well.

    I like his stuff like Cinemassacre and game reviews. But he does curse a little too much for me at times. I'm no prude or anything. I like NC much better.

    I like him.
    I stopped watching when his reviews started to get stale (Around the time he did 2 episodes a month or something), but I recently came back earlier and I'm enjoying his stuff.

    i like his stuff, though its understandable that he's been feeling a but flushed out about year and half ago. i do wish he did more reviews than once a month.

    Yeah, but I'm guessing it takes alot of work to make one of those reviews.


    Now that I think about it more, would this go in the Video Game disscussion?

    I love the angry video game nerd, although when he did a proper review on dr. jekyl and mr. hyde, I thought winter games looked like a worse game. I thought he exaggerated the game's horribleness

    Well, Egoraptor shares the Nerd's views on how bad Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was.
    And isn't everything about the nerd (Including what he says) an exaggeration? :p

    I like his movie reviews a lot more. I'm more into movies then games so stuff like CineMassacre and Monster Madness stuff excite me so.

    He's never been my cup of tea. He takes it to far, I think...

    I enjoy him, but the schtick has gotten old. The TMNT review was great because I lived it. The new reviews are all of terrible games from the past anyways.

    I love all of James' reviews. I've also met him a couple of times and he is a super nice guy.

    You do know the nerd is a character, right? He's not like that at all.

    ^This.

    He's the.....well um I can't think of a fictional person who knows so much about film making and film history.

    This is why i like him, it's more for his reviews of movies and ideas and stuff.
