Best Internet Game Reviewers

If you havent seen these guys, you should check em out.

The Top TenXW

1Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN)James Duncan Rolfe is an American actor, comedian, filmmaker, film and video game critic, and internet personality, best known for starring in the web television series The Angry Video Game Nerd, a joint production of Rolfe's Cinemassacre Productions, GameTrailers, and ScrewAttack.

Even though James Rolfe relies on vulgarity and intense profanity to be funny, he still succeeds. I don't think the Nostalgia critic should be on here because 1) he only reviewed one game and barely explained any details 2) he stole a joke from the Necro critic ( Even though I don't think Van Camp is good either) and 3) he slandered the mentally ill in one of his videos saying that The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is perfect for children with Tourette's syndrome and he said (I am paraphrasing) that the mentally ill are stupid.

"He's the Angriest Gamer you ever heard" The AVGN has made me laugh harder more then the Nostalgia Critic (Though he's good too)

Always high quality and some funny twist based of the theme of the games (s) reviewed

Hell to the yeah!

2Angry Joe

His reviews are quite honest, and he accurately addresses the most important aspects of the games he reviews, and is not afraid to go against mainstream opinion. He is also a badass and one hell of a funny guy, he's the best!

My go to guy. I just wish he reviewed more. If he says it sucks, it sucks. If he says its good, its because he's an actual fan and has fallen in love with it himself. He will even make fun of big review sites for giving mediocre games good reviews. The guy you can trust.

Joe is very entertaining and harbours enough energy and charisma to carry me all the way through his 25-30 minute reviews. He truly takes his time touching upon every thought or feeling he had regarding a product helping me as a consumer truly get a full picture of what I'm buying (far better then the 4-5 minute reviews IGN ot GT leave us) and his scoring system feels far more representative of a products actual quality (gone are the days where a 7=bad) A would count him among the best and would point anyone to him who is sick of today's typically broken reviews

His reason for sounding so negative in his reviews is actually really sound. It's so that the truly brilliant aspects of a game can shine through and so that the negative qualities can be used as lessons for future game designers on pitfalls to avoid in general game design.

He is hysterical! How he isn't at number 1 is beyond me! I've nearly pissed myself in the past listening to him!

He's unbiased and truthful. He's unique with his comedy. He is awesome!

Makes good points in a quick clever comedic style

By far the best one ever. Every one of his videos is so memorable with his lines of words. I don't know how to describe them, but he deserves to be number 1.

All I should need to say as to why this guy should be number one is simple. It's these next five words.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts.

I rest my case.

Jon is not only an incredibly charismatic and funny guy, he also has really high original quality content...The scarcest of things you can find in Youtube

Provides funny and witty analysis with each video.

5Nostalgia CriticNostalgia Critic is an American web series created, written, edited, directed and performed by Doug Walker.

He's not necessarily a video game reviewer, even though he reviewed a game only once. Either way, the Nostalgia Critic is insanely funny and always keeps his quality fairly fresh.

Only internet celebrity thats as funny as stand up comedians. - booklover1

Why is he on this list?!? He does movies!? Either way he gets my vote.

I actually feel that he is one of the only good critics out there. He makes honest reviews about games that I enjoy. Also Fringy is an awesome critic as well you should check him out because he's only got a few subscribers.

Like his objective approach to first-impressions of video games.

He is honest and shows all the important


Juan ortiz, or as some call him johnny, is a fantastic reviewer. He started out with a show called, the super gaming bros, with his brother elliot. But since elliot decided to stick to the lets play channel they have (super gaming bros. Play, with john, elliot, and their friend matt), he's decided to do the review show alone, and renamed it, Johnny vs. The world. Johnny is great, because he doesn't try to be funny, it comes naturaly, and he doesn't just get angry during reviews, he actually reviews them really well, by adding plot summaries, in depth analysis on games, and has his funny moments as well. He's a professional animator as well, and has some pretty funny animations to. So chech him out! He's Personally one of my favorite reviewers, and definitely deserves more subscribers!

The Spoony One is probably the only game reviewer that is both funny and entertaning. All of his videos are funny as hell.
If anyone is reading this right now, please go and watch his Ultima retrospective, I think it is one of the best videos he has done.


Really enjoy his videos! Both on his main channel and his second channel! To me it's just really enjoyable. What I also like is that he often doesn't swear, it makes his content a bit more for everyone.

He's funny but some may find him too "childish"

Not for everyone, still awesome.

The Newcomers

?Worth a Buy

One of the only honest reviewers ever, and gamings greatest hope at future quality control. Simply Hilarious, Entertaining, Honest and Unbound by bias. He understands the gaming industry's BEST and WORST aspects, and his Thumb up/Thumb down system, as we all know, is tried, true and, with his meaty explainable usually faultless. Only one close to him is Joe, well worth a watch

The Contenders


Absolutely love his tastes and sense of humor. His videos never get "too weird" and they never get stupid. You get a good sense of the atmosphere of a game and when he loves a game, you can feel it through him.

His videos are a bit long, but I am glad they are~ - Maplestrip

Honest, british, clever whats not to love?

Great comedy, and recently said line of the milennium: "SWEET HONKING ARSE BANDITS! " but can get serious when the occasion arises.

12Jim Sterling

While fighting bad publisher actions and being one of the most prominent video game reviewers to hit Konami's unfair business practices, Jim sterling, son, is my absolute dominant pick for best Reviewer. He not only researches his subjects and is honest to a point where most others would balk, but he's man enough to look towards the general public and game company employee treatment such as Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear. He is without a doubt an egotistical yet forward thinking person who fights bad games simply because of how much he *loves* good ones- If there's anyone who deserves to be on this list... its Jim Sterling.

13Bum Reviews

He usually does 1 minute review videos which gives a short but concise synopsis on what the game is and whether it's any good. But when ProJared actually buckles down to release a full review he's one of the best reviewers on the internet, be it YouTube or professional gaming site. Bonus points for using the entire 10-point scale as well

Full Reviews done by PJ are entertaining, and his genuine frustration with a lot of the junk out there comes through in humorous ways (having PeanutButterGamer scare the pee out of him during a Pocky & Rocky review was really ' funny.) Unfortunately, he wastes a lot of time on Monster Hunter & Pokémon when there are a ton of games out there which would be fun to watch him review. On the positive side: He tagged Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde (possibly the most impossible game in existence on the old NES) and Hydlide (AUGH! ) as two of the worst games in existence. Also not afraid to note when a game sucks despite the hype, and doesn't need scads of scatological references to make his point.

18Irate Gamer

The Irate Gamer is not funny or entertaining.

I know everyone gives him a hard time and accuses him of copying AVGN, and for the most part this is true, but he's still funny and at least tries to go in his own direction and not just copy the sensation that is AVGN.

For the asses who hate him for supposedly copying avgn, go yourself please.

Whilst he does not possess as much comedy as the AVGN, he is still funny and he does very well at analysing games such as the terrible Bubsy 3D.


Should be higher on this list. He's honestly one of my favorites! - pennyarcade
