Video reviews of shitty games have always been my cup tea; hell, I posted a thread
about it. Ever since the Gamespot days of the GiantBomb staff, Mr. Davis, Vinny, Brad, and Jeff, of watching classic video reviews of shitty games such as the Tetris Worlds
review, or Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Battle 22
review, just purged my soul, and brought happiness to my video game, anime, porn loving life. Anybody who goes and tells you that a shitty game (or video game movies) brings no good is completely wrong. The one good aspect it brings is a video of a pissed off person, or a person who's going through levels of deteriorating sanity - enter Mr. Davis in the TANG videos.
How many TANG shows will drive Mr. Davis to this point?
I first heard of AVGN about a year ago when I saw his video about the power glove, but I never really had any interest in check out his other videos. Until now, I got board one day and went to YouTube and decided to watch his videos. I became hook with the joy of watching the hate that he brings to the god awful games that he's playing. I must have spent hours just watching the videos he made over the past five years.
Ever since I've grown fond of the video reviews of shit. I began to associate them with several different styles that a person brings to a video review of a shitty game or video game movie. Like Mr. Davis for example, what he brings is signs of soul crushing, descending madness while he present a well thought out, intellectual form of words, his opinion. While others go through crazy scenarios like the 24: The Game
review from Alex Navarro when he was parodying scenes from the 24 show while showing off his misery. And now there's the AVGN, I enjoyed the aggression and crazy scenarios (similar to Alex Navarro) he delivered in his videos. After seeing him playing through a bunch of Sega CD
games, I notice another video from him about the Sega 32x
, and from then on, I couldn't stop watching his videos.

The way he forms his opinions is with a extraordinary amount of aggression. His words just also describe him as a disgusting foul mouth. He actually gets creative with the horrible activities that he says he'll do instead of play the shitty game he's reviewing, or comparisons of handling one aspect of the game console; for example, trying to stick a cartridge into a ColecoVison
is like "sticking your dick into a cheerio
." That disgusting intellect is just pure fascination.
So now I'm addicted to watching more AVGN videos. Watching them lifts me up with desirable joy. With this, and the TANG episodes, my internet life now has meaning. *Sign* That was fun. =)
