The Angry Video Game Nerd (originally titled "The Angry Nintendo Nerd", later becoming AVGN) is James Rolfe, a nostalgia critic who specializes in profanity-laced tirades at lackluster games from his youth. The Nerd goes through the game and shows you each frustrating part of the gameplay and his ensuing rage. Every nonsensical part of the game plot results in The Nerd cussing like a sailor. The Nerd begins each review with some background information on each game before telling you in great detail how much he hates it. The Nerd also reviews defunct hardware such as add-ons for the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis that frustrate him just as much as the horrible games he plays. For people who want to see the incredible grief caused by gaming to a guy with glasses, the Nerd is the master.
