Best Internet Game Reviewers

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

The Top Ten

1 Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) Angry 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.

If your looking for reviewers it's hard to find many that compare to THE nerd. The original grand daddy and pretty much first video game reviewer, you have him to thank for even making gaming reviews a genre.

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.

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

"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)

2 Angry 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

Brutal honesty, while more opinionated. Whether you thought games deserved a higher or lower review, you can't deny his honesty and reasons for giving the games the reviews he gave them.

3 Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw

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!

4 Jontron Jontron Jonathan Aryan "Jon" Jafari, best known by his internet pseudonym JonTron, is an American comedian, reviewer, and internet personality.

Maddox121 OUT OF THIS HOUSE a refrence to jontron - renarsmikus

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

5 Nostalgia Critic Nostalgia Critic Nostalgia 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.

Funny, but certainly no AVGN

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

7 Somecallmejohnny

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!

A fantastic reviewer who offers quality entertainment

Good thing he's not a sonic fanboy

He's such a critic

8 PeanutButterGamer

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.

This guy is hilarious. His videos on Hey You Pikachu, Tomodachi Life, Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 and the MySims games are some of his best, but almost all his videos are great.

9 Jim 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.

Blunt, direct and mostly honest, Jim is a one of kind type of critic

Just watch him already goddamnit! - MRRM

10 Caddicarus Caddicarus Caddicarus (James Caddick) is a British YouTuber who started YouTubing around May of 2012. He makes reviews on Sundays, with the Caddicarus show, and he makes random videos on Wednesdays with the Caddy show.

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?

Jesus Roadkill

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

The Contenders

11 Spoony

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.

12 Screwattack Screwattack

They are one of the best content creators out there

13 Bum Reviews
14 ProJared ProJared

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.

Just, like AVGN, James Rolfle's break from making AVGN videos. Check it out. -uSErNaħme666

17 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

I appreciate genuine people. Mack is genuine people.

Why isn't he number one? Like what the actual!

18 Nostalgia Chick
19 Video Game Vault
20 MeltingMan234

He has series on YouTube called forgotten there's video games in that series along with other medias & he did a better job reviewing them

So what's your thoughts on him.

I Prefer him over mr enter.

He's not good as the avgn because the nerd did better job doing it but he's a good reviewer.

21 BrutalMoose BrutalMoose

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

22 MatthewMatosis

This man is never afraid to go against the mainstream opinion and is exceptionally good at explaining why and how. He is one of the few reviewers out there that just talks about any little thing he can find with little care about how long that may take. At the end of any of his videos even if you disagree you will know where he's coming from, guaranteed.

Disgraceful that MatthewMatosis is this low yet mouth breathers like Angry Joe are at the top

Articulate, and in-depth critiques about game design.

23 TheRetroReplay

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.

24 Irate Gamer

I watch 2 make fun of him - gunsnroses

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.

He rips off AVGN and isn't funny in the damn slightest!

27 Classic Game Room (CGR)

Classic Game Room was the first Internet video game review show ever, and Mark never skipped a beat in his work. Sadly the channel declined in charm from 2016 on, but it was the commitment he had, and still has to some extent, that shows that CGR is unlike any other game review show out there.

This is THE internet game review show. The Angry Video Game Nerd may be a good internet game critic, but this is the original, honest, and humorous YouTube channel for the more relaxed crowd.

Classic and modern reviews. Great humour and new content daily. Fair reviews. CGR is awesome!

He thanks to his fan who send him stuff to the show

Clint is hilarious! just watch his mk and a collabs for all out laughter

29 Wiiviewer

I like this guy because in contrast to most angry video game reviewers he's more family friendly. He even get's his kids involved with the reviews. He's also pretty funny as well. - Shadsilvson11

I love that barbie jet set and style review!

The Wiiviewr's reviews are very entertaining! He's like no other reviewer. Most of the time, he's correct on what games for the Wii, WiiWare, Virtual Console, Wii U, Wii U eShop, and PlayStation 4 you should buy, rent, or skip. He has a great sense of humor, and I like how he sometimes reviews with his kids. The Wiiviewr is the only internet game reviewer who can hold my attention!

30 Phelous

Only gets better with every episode. His deadpan style, "I don't care" vibe, and the excellent skits put him leagues above the pack.

31 Cr1tikal (Penguinz0)

If someone matches James. It's the King of Nipples.

32 Armake21

This guy is more authentic than a lot of other angry game reviewers. Rather than trying to be funny he actually makes legitimately good points, and manages to be funny as well.

33 Pat the NES Punk Pat the NES Punk

Totally underrated in my opinion

34 Egoraptor Egoraptor
35 TJomega

He review a Transformers video game before the nerd did

36 Suede

SNESMan is the champion, he is 16-bit! Damn, I still got his theme in my head. Great reviewer, was really sad to see him go.. - Maplestrip

45 HappyConsoleGamer

Johnny Millenium and Rob Man are great, enthusiastic people. I love watching them talk about their games, even if their reviews are not particularly informative. - Maplestrip

What about Sega? The Genesis wipes the floor with the SNES in every way except for the controller and graphics.
