Angry Video Game Nerd – Season Two

Angry Video Game Nerd – Season Two

This is a video game. This is what you immediately think of whenever you hear the term. It’s the Atari 2600 and it defines the word classic. Even though the games are so simple and the graphics so primitive, it has a charm that will never be matched. The objects and characters just barely represent what they’re supposed to be, but that’s the whole beauty of it, that you have to use your imagination. The sound effects? Just awesome. And the lack of music just enhances the mood. It’s that special kinda atmosphere when it’s in the middle of the night and your sitting in the glow of your T.V. with the sound of crickets. The Atari had the longest lifespan of any home video game system and when people say Atari they’re usually refering to the 2600. But in between its existence, Atari made other systems which came and went. And one of these was the Atari 5200. It was meant to replace the 2600 although ironically, it failed and faded away, while the 2600 lived on. Why don’t many people remember this and why did it die off so quick? Because it’s a pile of f*cking sh*t! Why? Well, just look at it! Look at how huge this beast is! It’s ginormous. And why is there a door on it? Is this a video game console or a f*cking closet? Even the AC adapter weighs a million tons. So, I’m gonna plug this son of a b*tch in here. There we go. Get all this sh*t out of the way. Now, where do I plug the other end in? Doesn’t it go into the Atari? Well, you can look all over the system, but there’s no power connector. There’s a separate box that you have to plug it in. Now seriously, have you ever seen one of these? Other than the Atari 5200 I haven’t. So, you plug this bastard in. Then there’s this one wire coming out of the system so you plug that into the bo-, woah! Huh did you see that? That can’t be good. Look, sparks. No joke. So anyway the AC adapter and T.V. actually share the same wire. So I dunno what they were thinking, I mean maybe they were thinking I’d be more convenient to have less wires running across your floor? But they knew that they f*cked up, because later they re-released the Atari 5200 with the traditional two separate wires instead of just y’know this thing. But that one had two controller ports instead of four I think. Now we want to hook this thing up to that T.V., but it’s not gonna be easy I mean just look at all these games!

The creator of zelda based it on his adventures in the woods as a young boy and that’s what it’s supposed to feel like. That’s all you really need to know about zelda.

LAND OF THE HOLLOWS · July 22, 2019 at 10:08 am

I think they made that game impossible to beat just so you couldn't see their horrible spelling but they forgot about game genie or just figured most kids parents can't afford them

Tim Draeger · July 23, 2019 at 1:43 am

Jonathan Eldridge II · August 6, 2019 at 7:39 pm

I feel kinda dumb for having just now realized that the whole Halloween episode double feature thing was probably in homage to Grindhouse cinema

Jebus Matoi · August 18, 2019 at 7:03 pm

It's gotten to the point to where hearing "we live in the year 2007" is the new "we live in the year 1997".

Matthew Gassett · August 19, 2019 at 9:55 pm

I finally learned why my dad stopped playing video games after the 2600 probably one of his friends played a shitty Nintendo game fuuuuuuuck didnt get one till Christmas of 89 !

Faceapp old nerd 03:03:52 😂

Brad Hodges · August 22, 2019 at 9:44 pm

Th3r3s something real special about James. Its why hes lasted this long creating videos for us to enjoy. Hes so humble youd never guess the amount of success hes achieved. He does so much research and goes the extra mile for all of his videos. James puts more work and effort in just his intros than other youtubers put in their whole videos. And he gives us such a variety of video genres. Video game reviews, movie reviews, his own movies, documentaries, board game reviews, etc. he has a great personality and sense of humor which i believe will carry him at least another 20 years on youtube.

Peter Panda · August 24, 2019 at 6:13 am

Watch it in 2x

JF · August 24, 2019 at 11:42 pm

You have a fresh mouth. No wonder our kids curse fucking constantly.

Pehlivan · August 25, 2019 at 5:46 pm


Christopher Blackheart · August 25, 2019 at 6:08 pm

you know subtle changes from the season and actual individual episodes are, well subtle yet i notice them like the music changes and how he can't use footage from movies and stuff(Rocky and its music and the ending) i remember them being different years ago when I saw them the dialogue is still pretty much the same though and that's what matters. I can't get enough AVGN. James Rolfe you are an amazing guy and have always stuck to your roots. I've been watching your videos for as long as I can remember and they always help me through tough times and made me smile.

Zamilovanej Blázen · August 25, 2019 at 6:27 pm

31:55 i love how he throw the cartridge xDD

TJ123Hedgehog · August 26, 2019 at 10:36 am

I know in the megaman episode the nerd comes back to the independence day episode, but wouldn't it be cool if he went to the batman episode when he was being attacked by joker. I would love to see the jokers face when he sees 2 nerds ready to kick his a$$!

J T G · August 26, 2019 at 12:13 pm

I just realised he picked the exact same title music (Master Blaster stage 1) as my favourite retro gaming podcast, The Legacy Music Hour.

danny ingersoll · August 26, 2019 at 5:28 pm

Ashley Suddendorf · August 27, 2019 at 2:53 am

I had not ever tried walking with out my toes or heels touching the floor…(& i am 35) is that a dancing exercise? How did you come up with that analogy? I did it with some difficulty.

Meesho Batayeh · August 27, 2019 at 3:24 am

Awesome video, At 43:45 egon looks like Andrew dice clay

Pride trooper Jiren · August 27, 2019 at 4:56 am

You are the funniest YouTube on the internet

Andrew Mann · August 27, 2019 at 11:02 pm

Anyone else remember checking myspace to see when AVGN posted a new video on gametrailers/screwattack? Or when he posted a trailer on youtube and you had to press the link to watch the show on gametrailers. Good times

retro lover ben · August 28, 2019 at 1:42 am

James Rolfe always had the talent to nail it with this kind of entertainment even till this day. I just love his work so much. ^^

Intra Ignis · August 28, 2019 at 11:42 am

How is it that videos from 2007 look as though they're from 1274?

zog noty · August 28, 2019 at 2:13 pm

Brainhorn · August 28, 2019 at 2:58 pm

Conglaturation James!!! You won Ghostblusters!!!

BTW Yuengling is better. I've drank both. I don't know where Yuengling is local but in PA it's available all over the place.

nickthelick · September 1, 2019 at 4:41 am

I would've been about 7 or 8 years old when I had the Ghostbusters game on the good ol' Spectrum 128+2! =o)
And I distinctly remember struggling to play that game and complete it… But… After some time, I DID beat it! And I discovered that there's a kind of 'trick to it'… And once you've noticed it, the game becomes ridiculously EASY to complete!
Swear on my life. =o/ XoD

this is a timeless classic. I will keep watching these when I am an old fuck and everybody is annoyed by me watching old Videos with shitty quality about even older tech. and i will smile.

TheDXJC56 · September 4, 2019 at 2:21 pm

1:10:32 The nerd would roll over in his grave if he was alive right now to see that we still have those disgusting brick powercords over 12 years later in 2019. Maybe by the year 2030 we'll have come up with a solution for that.

Anthony Sloan · September 5, 2019 at 5:37 am

1:31:20 Yes actually, lol. In fact if you play tomb raider and you try to unlock something but don't have a key, she flat out says no 😂

Did James really refer to all of his "CONSOLES" as "GAMES" in the beginning?!?!

Mr. Moesby · September 11, 2019 at 1:53 pm

Looking at the bugs bunny birthday blowout episode, I have a feeling James learned to fight from Street Fighter

Staple Bite · September 11, 2019 at 4:36 pm


Daryle Johnson · September 11, 2019 at 5:22 pm
