    I'm sure many of you have seen the Angry Video Game Nerd on the web at some point. Well you may not have known that there was a contest held to "Out Nerd the Nerd" where contestants did their own review. Well, my friend Mike and I decided to do an entry. Please check it out. It's got strong language, as you'd expect, and I think it's pretty funny and well done so I decided to share it. Please leave good comments and ratings and check out the other entries.

    Oh, and this isn't an attempt to stuff a ballot box. I'm pretty sure the ratings don't affect judging. Just wanted some feedback.

    I hate that nerd guy. He needs to learn funny, then reattempt.

    Which guy? The real nerd or my friend Mike in the review?

    It should be noted that he filmed while suffering from a severe stomach virus.

    WOW. What a great grasp of the English language. Can't say a single sentence without using a profane or vulgar word.

    Well if you know the style of the Angry video game nerd, then you'll know why. You have to know the context of the review.

    Thanks for the compliment FreshDebesh.

    I don't understand the competition. The Angry Nintendo Nerd is hardly the first person to think of reviewing crappy old games and putting it on the internet. Also he's really not all that good at it.

    I haven't been able to watch your one yet because the site is taking forever to load, but I will check it out.

    Basically the contest was to do your own review in any style you wish. Personally, I like the Angry Video Game Nerd's style, and since The NErd is the most famous reviewer on that site they named the contest after him as well. I don't think anyone thinks he is original for reviewing bad games, but his style is very entertaining. His movies aren't about the review as much as they are about his hatred for the game. If you hate him you won't like what my friend and I did.
