    I don't know why there was not a Official thread for him on here..... But here you go!
    My favorite Internet show deserve to have its own thread
    I will be keeping this updated daily, just for you guys.

    The Angry Video Game Nerd (abbreviated as AVGN, occasionally shortened to The Nerd) is the character and title of a series of farcical retrogaming video reviews by James Rolfe (Credited James D. Rolfe). The show generally revolves around retro game reviews that involve bitter rants against particularly low-quality or poorly designed video games, often associated with movie tie-ins. The series began as a feature on YouTube, and later joined ScrewAttack Entertainment, which would later have three of its features, including the AVGN, transferred to GameTrailers exclusively. The show, formerly known as The Angry Nintendo Nerd, was renamed because the show started reviewing games on other consoles, and also to prevent any trademark issues with Nintendo.

    The Nerd character is a short-tempered and foul-mouthed video game fanatic. He derives comic appeal from excessive and inventive use of profanity, frequent displays of explicit gestures, and heavy consumption of beer, particularly Rolling Rock or Yuengling. A particular characteristic, which has become something of a trademark of his character, is for him to describe, in great detail, extremely repulsive and painful, usually firmly scatological acts, and to claim that he would rather endure them than to play the game that he is reviewing. Varying amounts of physical comedy are mixed into the verbal abuses.

    - He's gonna take you back to the past,
    - To play the shitty games that suck ass,
    - He'd rather have a buffalo, take a diarrhea dump in his ear.

    Also be sure to check out his Monster Madness and Godzillathon videos. Very entertaining.

    Finally! Nostalgia Critic has a thread, now the Nerd does too!

    I thing he's pretty awesome, I've pretty much adopted "Sh*tload of F*ck" into my vocabulary.

    I thought of starting this thread awhile ago but, I figured it would end up like all of the other threads I started, ignored or closed. So, good on you OP.

    It looks like he is specifically setting up his next video game review to be about Cheetahman, since Cheetahman has his own game as well as the one on Action 52.
