Lately I was keen on doing another ScrewAttack/Angry Video Game Nerd fanart.
This time I chose not to draw or paint something about a specific game but about several games the Angry Video Game Nerd (also known as James Rolfe or the Angry Nintendo Nerd) has reviewed.

Please note: YES, there are many more games the Nerd has reviewed and criticized, like the "Terminator", "Hydlyde" or "Dick Tracy". I hope you can understand why I didn't want quite all of them in one pic.

And yeah, the Nostalgic Critic (who makes another online show I also love to watch) is in here, too ;)

Drawn with pencil, everything else in Photoshop.

To make it complete, here's the list of the games and their representing characters who chase the poor Nerd:

- Ninja Gaiden, NES (the Ninja guest star in this episode)
- Waynes World, NES & SNES (Wayne & Garth)
- Bugs Bunny, several consoles
- Zelda: Wand of Gamelon & Hotel Mario, Phillips CDi (The King & Mario)
- Silver Surfer, NES
- Count Dracula, several consoles (Dracula from the Reebok promotion game)
- Plumbers don't wear ties, 3DO (Jane)
- Cybermorph, Atari Jaguar (the strange female head)
- Superman 64, Nintendo 64 (Superman)
- Michael Jacksons Moonwalker, Sega Genesis (late Michael Jackson and his monkey Bubbles)
- Mary Shelleys Frankenstein, several consoles (the Monster)
- Milons Secret Castle, NES (Milon)
- Dragons Lair, NES (Dirk the Daring)
- Wizord of Oz, SNES (Dorothy)
- Bart vs. the Space Mutants & Bart vs. the World, NES (Bart Simpson)
- Wally Bear and the NO Gang, NES (Wally Bear)
- Festers Quest, NES (Uncle Fester)
- Indiana Jones, several consoles (Indiana Jones)
- Batman, several consoles (Batman)
- Who framed Roger Rabbit, NES (Roger Rabbit)
- Super Pitfall, NES (Pitfall Harry)
- Ghostbusters, several consoles (Stay Puft Marshmallow Man)
- Bible games, several consoles (Jesus Christ)

Is this what happens when you review terrible games?

Why is The Nostalgia Critic laughing? Doesn't he have enough problems on his own too?

Well, here he is not in the focus. He is laughing at the poor Nerd because he's his rival ;)

Even though I am a huge fan of AVGN, the only episodes that I did not like were both of the episodes involving the Bugs Bunny video games because he wasn't entirely true about "The Bugs Bunny Birthday Blowout" and "Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle" being bad games, especially after seeing them being reviewed by other gamers, which turned out to be quite enjoyable. :P

I remember quite a few years ago I popped in birthday blowout because I wanted to play it for myself to see how bad it really was, but like a lot of people I REALLY enjoyed it. It had so many things in it that I love about playing video games, platform jumping etc, I didn't stop playing either, that morning I played it from beginning to end, was there times when I got mad? of course, but that happens with EVERY game, so while I don't agree, I can still enjoy the reviews because their still funny and well done.

I usually tend to stay away from "video game connoisseurs" (i.e. PewdiePie, Cinnamassacre, Markiplier, Game Grumps) because of two primary reasons:

1. As an avid gamer myself (currently have gone through 490 titles altogether :D), I refuse to side with these critics/reviewers as to state definitively that a reviewed game was either great or unfavorable [i.e. they may disagree, but I feel Goldeneye 007 (N64) was an overrated 007 title; 007 Nightfire was better and I actually like Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES) even it's seen the "black sheep" entry; that goes to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for me].

2. Internet personalities depict horribly or over exaggeratedly how the gamer himself/herself actually acts. AVGN, for instance, acts like an absolute alcoholic snob who makes up lowly remarks to harshly insult video games, the consoles, or accessories (i.e. saying the Power Glove "sucks monkey-****" ...Seriously?) while I hope to imagine James Rolfe is almost polar-opposite in reality.

Well, that aside this is quite the comical picture and to my surprise Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are absent [I know AVGN among others absolutely hated Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (NES)]. I'm sorry for such a lengthy comment Sweating a little...  and just to be clear, the statements above are solely my opinion and I have no further justification as such to whether I'm "wrong" or "right" otherwise. Thank you for thoroughly reading and acknowledging the context of my statement. So with that, I am out!

Well Michael died in 2009 so I guess that makes sense.
