So I was thinking… there is some much wonderful shit on the internet… why not do my best to point out some of the stuff that I truly enjoy. So without further adieu I present to you “Channel Surfing”, a reoccurring high light of some of the best channels on YouTube. Of course some of you have already found these channels and already enjoy them, but it never hurts to give exposure where exposure is due.
This weeks highlighted channel is cinemassacre.com. These are the guys that have brought us, among other things, the “Angry Video Game Nerd”. Now they have all sorts of other videos on their channel, but I am going to focus on the AVGN on this piece because, in all honesty, it is one of my favorite shows on YouTube, not just this specific channel.
The AVGN is the misadventures of Mr. James Rolfe, AKA the “Angry Video Game Nerd”, and his quest to play some of the shittiest games of all time. He is up to somewhere around 200 reviews now, but lately he has been reviewing games in groups, for example he grouped the Star Wars games together and he also has a compilation of all the games based on Spielberg movies. Few things make me genuinely laugh out loud, but this asshole gets me every time. His wittiness combined with his extensive knowledge of games makes this series one that fans of nerdom will truly enjoy.
Though I could go on forever about this channel it is actually much easier to just to check out some of the videos and see what you think. I’m going to throw some embedded videos at the bottom of the page and here is a direct link to their page. They have over 350,000,000 views and almost 750,000 subscribers so I’m sure they don’t need our help with promotion, but if you love retro gaming I think you will get a kick out of these guys.
