The BEST episodes of Angry Video Game Nerd

Every episode of Angry Video Game Nerd ever, ranked from best to worst by thousands of votes from fans of the show. The best episodes of Angry Video Game Nerd!

The titular Nerd character is an ill-tempered and foul-mouthed video game fanatic. He derives comic appeal from excessive and inventive use of profanity, frequent displays of explicit gestures, and heavy consumption of beer, particularly Rolling Rock or Yuengling, to "soothe the pain". A particular characteristic is his favorable comparison of extremely repulsive and painful, usually firmly scatological, acts to playing the games he reviews. Varying amounts of physical comedy are mixed into the verbal abuse.
