The reviewing of poor media products on the internet has become a whole genre of comedy in itself. Movies, video games, anime, comic books, music, etc, all have dedicated reviewers who will pick them apart and criticize all in the good name of entertainment. One of the most famous perpetrators and originators of this genre within the cyberspace of the internet is none other than The Angry Video Game Nerd.
The Nerd (as portrayed by James D. Rolfe), is a fouled mouthed, short tempered retro gamer, destined to review as he would call them, "shitty fucking games".
The Nerd's trademark humor is comprised mostly of strong profanity and over the top comparisons to describe how awful a game is, i.e. "This game is so hard it would actually be easier to outside in a thunderstorm and dodge rain". The Nerd's humor is certainly a required taste, but those who enjoy these comedic sensibilities will undoubtedly find the Nerd hilarious.
With The Angry Video Game Nerd, James Rolfe has managed to create something totally original. Countless imitators will come and go, but the original will remain the best.
