Top Ten Angry Video Game Nerd Episodes

One of my favorite guys on the internet. Time to count down the top ten episodes of his show. Now don't think these are the only good episodes of the Angry Video Game Nerd, they are just my personal favorites. If you haven't seen these, check them out.

The Top Ten

1 Plumbers Don't Wear Ties

The only AVGN episode where I laugh every single time I watch it. Brilliant facial expressions, atrocious game, amazing episode.

"The box says 17, but for this ONE PART, you gotta be 18"... Who needs crazy nonsensical bungled ratings when this crazy traveshamockery of a 3DO "game" is so dumb it's not suitable for mature audiences let alone kids!

The worst and weirdest game the Nerd has ever played (as it seems), and the worst/weirdest game I've ever seen.

All the episodes are pretty good, but this one is the best. - Deathtop10

2 Action 52

"Safety pins as enemies in a video game... Where do they come up with this! " Right after the Nerd says this, we see his impression of a video game programmer - specifically the Laughing Joking Numbnuts who gave us Action 52.

I snicker so damn hard every single time I watch it. It is bursting with memorable lines that my friend and I endlessly quote at each other.

Just seeing the Nerd scream in agony as he plays those awful games is just what made my day.

3 Bugs Bunnys Birthday Blowout

Watching him beat up Bugs Bunny was absolutely priceless!

Best nerd episode. Period. - ashduck

This is the definition of a classic episode.

What up cock

4 Tiger Electronic Games

These games were the dread of every child in the 90s on Christmas morning. One of his best episodes from the new season. - therowdyman

This is my favorite. I don't know why

64 bit 32 bit 16 bit 8 bit 4 bit 2 bit 1 bit 1/2 bit 1/4 BIT

Nintendo 64...

Heh... Bit Wars...

Sixty Four Bits
Tirty Two Bits
Sixteen Bits
Eight Bits
T H E W R I S T G A M E! ! !

5 Superman 64

His most requested video besides E. T. on the Atari 2600. And the game is REALLY bad. He also teases everyone by doing Superman on the Comidor 64 right before moving to Nintendo 64 one. The game is so bad, it's funny to watch someone try to play it.

Look at Donkey Kong's face on the N64! P.S. The N64 is the best gaming console of all time, and my favorite video game for this console is Super Mario 64, my top 1 favorite video game of all time, with my least favorite video game of all time being this - Superman 64. Awesome, flawless review, James Rolfe!

Rings, rings and more rings laugh out loud, one of the most hilarious episodes

The ending was great

6 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III Movie Review (Parts 1 & 2)

Nice to watch, detail, and hilarious all over. By detail, I mean how the Nerd shows how disappointing the movie was, how hyped up it was, how his friends were anticipating it, a slight summary of the two past movies, and the top ten corniest lines from it. The movie is just terrible, and he explains why. The movie and him together make it nearly hysterical. He also destroys the tape at the end with a... Well, I won't spoil it for you. Overall, just know that this episode is great. (It is a two-parter, but technically it is one episode.

Its not even a game, its a movie but its so bad. Personally I liked part 2 more sense he does the top 5 (or 10 I can't remember) worst quotes from the movies, my favorite is "uh who were you expecting? The Adams family? " then Raph is like "haha good one"

These video games are the epitome of the whole Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

7 Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Revisited

Let's face it, this game is the bane to the Nerd's entire existence. And unlike the original, he actually plays through most of the game and gives out more details. Plus it contains my favorite AVGN quote " What did the good doctor do to make so many people hate him? I can just see the townspeople sitting at the local pub. Hey, you've seen Jekyll? He just keeps f****** walking. I don't like him. He's and a******. He wears his underwear backwards. He has eyeballs for testicles! "

Now go play some Dr. Jekyll and Mr. HYYYDDDEE!

Given that Nintendo the video game company is itself a 19th-century licensed property whose old business was in trading cards, the NES version of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is a marriage of 19th-century licensed properties gone horribly ludicrously unbelievably wrong. No matter who programmed said game, they gave Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde the LJN treatment.
Purple for putrid gameplay... Check!
Blue for bad musical abominations... Check!
Green for graphical farts and garlic... Check!
Yellow for piss-poor lack of loyalty to source material... Check!
Orange for orange you a big idiot... Check, since the image on the cover is a ripoff of Freddy Krueger (another Halloween icon whose NES game was ruined by Laughing Joking Numbnuts) as well as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Red for high-stress anger-inducing masochism... Giant economy-sized check!

"See Jekyll over there? He keeps walking; he keeps f******walking! I don't like him! He's an ass! He wears his underwear backwards! He has eyeballs instead of testicles! " I laughed so hard...

8 Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

Cracked up laughing when watching, loved his reactions to the game!

"I just have one question. How fast can you go in reverse? "

Great episode especially the commercial part. - Temenoil

Biig Motherf-kin' Riigs! - Martin_Canine

9 Game Glitches

My new favorite one, and the glitches in the video game Rocky was hilarious. And also the glitch Gremlin was funny. - Skullkid755

This one's my fave. Specially Nerd's acting and voice-over. Good Stuff!

His overview of natural glitches is cozy

IT'S A CLUBBERF**K! - The Angry Video Game Nerd

10 Godzilla

What makes the review is the part at the end where The Nerd is thinking against the recent games, but then he puts in Xbox and PS2 games, and heavy metal music starts playing and he is seeing how awesome they are to him, and he drops the F bomb from the bottom of his heart (literally).

I love this one, how each Godzilla game just gets worse and worse as he plays them until he finally exolodes

The Contenders

11 Ninja Gaiden

Your playing with anger! Anger does not exist, Hate does not exist! - htoutlaws2012

It sucks when you keep dying on the second of three consecutive final bosses.

"If you set a course for the moon and merely follow the stars... then you will miss that which you have set forth."

Honestly that episode was just forgetable - DensestPotato

12 Atari Porn

Yes, this exists. It's so weird, which makes it so funny. The Nerd mixed with it makes it work so well and makes it just hilarious.

This episode got taken down from YouTube, alongside Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3 The Movie, and Super Mario Bros 3.

The Movie Review would've created a Nerd spin off, but that was scraped.

Man, this one is GREAT.

This is on the Cinemassacre website in case people want to watch this banned episode alongside Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: The Movie

13 Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle

Out of the two Bugs Bunny reviews, I like this one more. The fighting is just SO funny and everything is just fun to watch. I also like the actual review in this one more than in Birthday Blowout. The Nerd's reactions to all the sequels are just great.

The part is funny when he puts crazy castle games in the super Mario brothers 2 bin. I also like the part when bugs bunny poops on the angry video game nerd. I also like it when the avgn takes off bugs bunny's head. I also like it when bugs bunny and the angry video game nerd break the guitar and the couch.

I played Crazy Castle 3 and I thought it was pretty fun - Gehenna

14 Friday The 13th

Spider man, Spiderman! Does whatever-a spider can! Spins a web, any size! Catches thieves, just like flies! Look out! Here comes a spiderman! Oops... I clicked the wrong one...

His first review with a guest/character. His sarcasm throughout the review makes it especially funny.

AVGN sure whopped Jason's ass. Take that jason!

15 The Power Glove

Just incredible how bad this NES add on is. I never owned the power glove, but I own the N64 glove (it sucks). The montage just shows how bad the control is. There's a part where The Nerd just gives up and starts using the control pad on the glove instead of using the motion control.

The Power Glove's biggest success came when Lucas used it to play Rad Racer in a movie called The Wizard. "I love the Power Glove. It's so bad" that no one can blame the Angry Video Game Nerd for giving it the middle finger!

By far his most popular episode!

My first avgn episode I ever watch and still my favorite

16 EarthBound

A suprisingly emotional and complex episode.

Very nice video result to watch. feels like we could see whole story of EB here.

17 Halloween

The Nerd has little kids with him. It's funny that the nerd's usual language is now covered with the word "dope. " Also, the reviews themselves in the video are okay, but it's the 'story' part really makes the video.

"its alive its ALIVE, how about its ASS its ASSSSSS" hilarious quote - mikeyeggo

Swearing in front of kids is not funny at all.

18 The Wizard/Super Mario Bros. 3

I should have put this on the list too. Incredibly funny review.

Yeah It Was Awesome!

Wasn't this removed from YouTube thanks to The Wizard? - Gehenna

Super Mecha Death Chris 2000 because.
Even as a Christian I find this funny.

19 Little Red Hood

The Laughing Joking Numbnuts who ruined this game figured that butchering children's nursery tales is fair game too.

Probably the worst video game based on a book license...

I think this episode is quite underrated

20 AVGN Games

We get to see the Nerd play his own video game (AVGN Adventures) in this episode. AVGN Adventures contains one whole level made by and named after LJN.

The Atari 2600 game featured in this episode features the Nerd stopping LJN games from hitting Atari, Nintendo and Sega consoles, but which console is which is anyone's guess.

"Mike? Who the hell is Mike? I don't know anyone like that..."
...but Board James sure did!

21 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
22 Texas Chainsaw Massacre

"Will if he don't like video games why is he playing video games?! "

My most favorite part is when the nerd gets captured and hillbilly and chop top laughed at him

Funny as balls - TimTamTheTurtleMan

One of his most insane episodes. Great acting by Steven J. Klaszky (the Hillbilly) and Matei.

23 Street Fighter 2010
24 Sega 32X

OH OH OH OH! - htoutlaws2012

25 Polybius
26 Hong Kong 97

New York 2017 - Gehenna


Chin! - htoutlaws2012


27 Spider-Man

This one is always fun to watch. It's another guest/character review. The games in it are just really funny to watch James (The Nerd) and "Spider-Man" watch. The way "Spider-Man" talks is funny, as well as the song at the end.

Spiderman, spiderman
Takes a dump in a coffee can

"Alcohol is his power source

Takes a piss like a drunken horse" - xandermartin98

28 R.O.B. The Robot

My favorite episode! So funny and epic!

I think this one might have the best special effects, but when he goes to the kitchen and makes a gyro...hilarious!

No words! Just see it!

BEST! Put this higher

29 Ikari Warriors

Kyle just stole this one, but it's brilliant. Love the music, love the genuine nerd reactions to the random things coming out of his mouth, even hidden behind a controller, and I love how the game is so weird that it's all on theme. Where DID the hair go?


30 M.C. Kids

This is the funniest AVGN ep. I'd ever watched, next to Plumbers Don't Wear Ties. "So there's Ronald with his magic bag, bag of hallucinogenic drugs" that is so funny. The funnies was "So there's Grimace, the big purple f***". This should be #1 and plumbers don't wear ties is #2.

It's Okay But One Error James Said
7-Elven Instead 7up Spot.

31 NES Accessories

How the hell did only 0.1% vote for this? Anyways, it's my favorite episode because of all the things he talks about in it that I otherwise never would've known existed.

"Rolling Rock on the Roll-n-Rocker" is the best one-liner from this episode thanks to the Roll-n-Rocker (which is a useless waste of perfectly good plastic brought to you by Laughing Joking Numbnuts).

The most hilarious episode, he talks about more than one game/gadget and each one is fun to watch. My favourite is when he yells "fire! fire! fire!

32 Spielberg Games

This one was just so entertaining - Sneslper

ET Go Come :3 - Gehenna


33 Atari 5200

This is the Nerd's first review of a console and he didn't even get it to work because of how awful the controller is.

34 Swordquest

Best overall in my opinion the mystery, the music everything about it is just epic

Probably the most memorable for me and a great mystery

It's a good episode but he's really calm in this one

35 Toxic Crusaders

Nope, this one was just terrible. - DensestPotato

The grandfather of gross-out humour Lloyd Kaufman joins the Nerd to play the games based on the Troma cartoon show. A personal favourite of mine, just seeing the two generations of Toliet humour coming together. - therowdyman

I didn't like the ending :( - Gehenna

36 Ghostbusters

I've never laughed so hard at a YouTube video. It's excellent. It was the first I'd seen and it got me hooked.

All three episodes are awesome. But the first is my favorite AVGN episode ever. - Obelisk94

I feel bad for avgn in this one. That ghostbusters game looks like it really sucks!

This game was half as bad as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It made it into 3 parts. It’s an original, and it gets credit for that.

You have read a great post.
And prooved share for the website.
Now go a read another viewers!

37 Bible Games

The Nerd devoted THREE episodes to crazy dysfunctional Bible games. What did the world's best-selling copyrighted book of all time do to deserve the LJN treatment, anyway... no, What's on second!

38 Atari Sports

One of my favorite episodes. The football rant is amazing. But the rest is hilarious too!

His rant on football is hilarious

"What is this? Geodude fighting Mr. Game & Watch? "

My god that is hilarious - bobbythebrony

*funky music plays* - Gehenna

IT SAYS FUUU *2000 years later* UUCK! - ShaunFan04

40 Pong Consoles

The Nerd covers at least a dozen Pong consoles in this episode.

41 Battletoads

Probably the worst two-player video game ever...

I love this game, but it's horribly programmed with two-players.

42 Castlevania Anthology
43 Atari Jaguar (Parts 1 & 2)

Funny episode. And I love videos about atari jaguar. :-) Best avgn episode ever! - markuzohlsson

44 Dick Tracy

No one can blame the Angry Video Game Nerd for going crazy over the absence of a continue option in this game. Can anybody say Rainbow Of Doom!

His angriest review to date and always makes me laugh more than any other episode.

All time most natural yet insane episode and a criminally underrated episode.

45 Batman Part I
46 Game Boy Accessories
47 Sega CD

This episode has very funny game reviews in it that always make me laugh, not to mention the best version of the theme song!

48 CD-I (Part 2) Zelda Wand of Gamelon

The Laughing Joking Numbnuts who ruined three Zelda CDi games too many released two of said games on the same day in 1993: this game and Link The Faces Of Evil.

You've killed me! Good! Heheh...! Heheheheh!

49 Dark Castle

I find this episode the funniest! Should be higher.!

"Easy? It was on EASY?! "

50 Silver Surfer Silver Surfer The Silver Surfer is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Born Norrin Radd, the Silver Surfer's abilities are given to him through the Power Cosmic. His first appearance was in Fantastic Four #48 in 1966 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He was more.

It's easier to pick fly out of pepper... while wearing boxing gloves.
