3.9/5 (with 30 votes)

The Angry Video Game Nerd is an adult web television series of comedic retrogaming video reviews created by and starring James Rolfe.

Rolfe's character, "The Nerd" is a short-tempered and foul-mouthed video game fanatic. He derives comic appeal from excessive and inventive use of anger, profanity, and habitual consumption of alcohol while reviewing video games. A feature-length film, Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie, is expected to be released between 2013 and 2014.
