I like AVGN because it reminds me when I first started playing nintendo and I get all nostalgic. But damn, any game reviewer based on the internet or started on the internet seems to be horrid. If they want people to like them they are way too nice, if they want people to think they are savants they hate everything.

That's basically my opinion. I think my favorite part of AVGN is seeing his massive collection of peripherals.

I checked Angry Video Game Nerd, Irate Gamer, and Armake 21 out. None of them are funny.

PS: What is so funny about making fun of NES games? It is like mocking a 3 year old for not being as knowledgeable as a 30 year old.

Bad NES games are funny because they make us nostalgic. It used to be there was no source of information to tell us which games were worth playing. There was no gamereviews.com, and magazine subscriptions were expensive as hell, and at the time, it seemed like that for 50 bucks, nothing could be put out that was such pure shit. We were wrong, and now we can laugh about it.

And I gotta say that that analogy doesn't hold at all, because they're not saying the NES games are bad by today's standards -- they're bad by the NES's standards.

No kidding. This lack of reviewing is what made the rental business much bigger than it was. Back in the days of carts, you basically had to rent or you would never even use your console. Buying games was a pain in the ass and when you occasionally got one, you better be sure it was something you liked or otherwise you had a very expensive paperweight.

It's one thing to thank the reviewers and the internet, but when Sony started putting out 'Greatest Hits' for less than half the price, that was a true godsend.

The reason for her fanbase is pretty obvious.

The only few of the reviewers that actually reviews. No gimmick.

Funcoland was the best ever

Back then you had to either rely on word of mouth, pick at random or how pretty the box art was, or hope that the guy working there has no life and played every single cart (no problem these days of course)

AVGN is horrible... most of the time.
However, his review of Bible Buffet is spot-on. So spot-on in fact that I can completely ignore his (lack of) acting and laugh my ass off. Because that game truly is a trippy piece of shit.
