So, any fans of AVGN here on OT2??

I only really discovered his hilarious and sweary reviews of old video games from the 80s/90s a few years ago, though I think he's been doing them for about a decade now!

Also, there's now a movie!! Yep, a movie spawned from a YouTube series. I've not seen it yet but I do wonder quite how they managed to pad that out...

While not a huge fan of the AVGN, I do like James Rolfe's Monster Madness series and I do absolutely want to see the movie! The trailer looked amazing and I have heard good things about it.

In some ways I think I'm enjoying James and Mike Mondays more than the AVGN - the naturalness of it comes across and there no need for gimmicks, just them, playing some games.

I'll have to check out the Monster Madness series.

The "Dream Phone" Board James was a laugh though.

Monster Madness was his Halloween thing. Throughout October he did a short review of a monster movie a day, if he could. It's been interesting.

I mostly really like AVGN. Sometimes his humour gets a bit biological for my taste (we fast forward through the opening tune because the poo stuff squicks me out). But there are episodes we've watched multiple times because they're so damn hilarious. Jekyll and Hyde. If you haven't seen that yet, make it the next one you watch.

Yeah, the vomit and poo stuff is a bit much sometimes - particularly in the Toxic Crusader one. Actually, the director bloke they had in there disturbs me! Must be their kind of thing. I like the mockery of the old games, pointing out the obvious flaws, glitches and the like but occasionally the other stuff gets a bit intrusive.

The Glitch Gremlin was a good episode.

@Loiterer: I see they've got a Monster Madness up this year too!
