What were they thinking?!?
~ The Nerd commenting on poor choices done by video game developers.

The Angry Video Game Nerd (formerly The Angry Nintendo Nerd and often abbreviated The Nerd) is the titular protagonist of the popular web-series of the same name portrayed and created by James Rolfe. In each episode, he reviews a different poorly made video game, foul-mouthedly complaining, overreacting and often shouting about either graphic and music quality or game-play, but more reasonably the latter. His mortal enemy is the Nostalgia Critic.


The AVGN looks like the stereotypical nerd. He wears glasses and dresses in a white dress shirt, that is always neatly buttoned up. In the pocket of this shirt, he has a few pens, which he sometimes throws. He also equips some of his NES accessories when fighting for armor and weaponry as Super NES Angry Video Game Nerd, where he doesn't wear his glasses.


The Nerd appears to have anger issues, sometimes going as far as destroying a game if he is angry enough. He is constantly drinking beer (probably Rolling Rock.) He usually flips off the game he is reviewing, sometimes in an slightly different way, such as wearing the Power Glove, he constantly swears and seems to like the expression "what a s---load of f---!"
