I knew he was making it, but I had no idea it would look so horrible.
DIDN'T you though? This was the only possible outcome.

There are hundreds of pages that could be written about what it is, exactly, about the angry video game nerd that makes him so impossibly, aggressively insufferable to people like us. I don't even want to think about it because then I'd have to think about AVGN for any length of time.

Ritual genital mutilation exists, too.

This actually looks worse than I could possibly imagine.

Can this be "lifestyle nerds" week, or would that be more than we could cope with?
Every week is lifestyle nerd week, whether we want to admit it or not.

Between this and the "Big Bang Theory is a disgrace to nerds!" video you guys are coming out to be really easy to piss off.
Yeah I don't get it either. I'm obviously not the target demo for this thing so I really don't give a shit about it either way.
Is it the fact that a market for this kind of thing exists that is pissing you off?
Probably that there's no market for anything else but this. Like as a culture we all chose to just suck with no diversity.

Well, he did the open-mouth frowny face, but where were his references to diarrhea?

Ugh. PS want to read something sad, try the "Crowning Moments of Awesome" page for the AVGN entry on our old friend TVTropes, and remember there are people who think this guy is awesome, that he's funny and entertaining.
"Oh great, I'm trying to land the plane in Top Gun with the Power Glove. I can't even land it with the regular controller!" The look of utter awe on his face afterward as he looks at the mentioned Power Glove just seals the deal for this troper.
•There was his epic fight against the possessed consoles in his review of Super Mario Bros 3. Best part? The Nerd pulling out two NES Zappers and fires them like crazy, shouting "I'm the lord of the harvest! Bring it Down! Bring it Down!"
•The Nerd's unnecessarily vulgar Shut Up, Hannibal! given to Freddy Kreuger.
Freddy: "Woah, look at me, I'm a fucking nerd! What a piece of shit! Buffalo diarrhea fuckfarts! Y'see nerd, nobody makes you play these games but yourself, so you're your own damn nightmare. Now, but you're gonna die..."
Nerd: Go yank your cock through your ass you fucking butt mongrel, I got the POWER GLOVE!"
. . .
In all fairness, the part where he landed that plane with the Power Glove WAS pretty awesome.

I don't know about the rest of this but I'm looking forward to hearing more about E.T.

I liked this guy when his videos where his videos was going over the shitty and impossible games that pissed us off as kids. The Ninja Gaiden footage was pure delayed catharsis.
Then he fell victim to "skit disease" like all online reviewers eventually do. More reviews, less 5 minutes segments of After Effects shooting things with the super scope and pretending to shit on consoles.

I haven't watched this yet. I've been meaning to.
The Angry Video Game Nerd is pretty much responsible for kicking off the trend of internet review vloggers that followed. In the early 2000's it was just this guy, in his basement, making videos. Nowadays we have Spoony, Red Letter Media, the Cinema Snob, and the entire Channel Awesome and Blistered Thumbs websites. A lot of these critics have stuck to the same ol' "angry rant" routine while others have found their own unique thing. Some have a routine that has stayed strong despite few adjustments. Some... do not. I'm not ashamed to admit that I still find a few of these reviewers entertaining, out of many others who are simply repellent.
I'm hoping the AVGN Movie will be the Nerd's swan song. It was funny when he first started, but a guy can only make so many videos that consist of the same poopie and bestiality rants before it gets old. Looking back, the only thing I really liked about James Rolfes' character were the facial expressions.
This year Doug Walker killed his Nostalgia Critic character in the annual Channel Awesome Special wankfest. Maybe it's time for James to put aside his Nerd character as well...

I have never understood the appeal of this guy.

Five because this is not another MLP video.
