    man why are so many of the bibel games ripoffs of so many other games did they run out of ideas

      Ripping off famous games happened a lot years ago, not just Bible Games.

      I remember playing all sorts of clones from games such as Pac-Man, Mario Bros, Space Invaders.

        Then there’s the BIGGEST rip-off artist of ALL time, Hollywood!

    • November 12, 2014 at 10:44 pm

      Well, every religion is a rip off of another so it makes perfect sense.

    I had Bible Adventures. Never played anything but Noah because of the insane difficulty of Baby Moses and the raw shit that was D&G. I even remember getting in trouble because I said “Holy shit! Noah’s holding up tow oxen and two cows!”

  • May 2, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    This is the first AVGN i saw and its still funny!

  • May 10, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    Wow those Bible games are ASS!

  • Andoru

    You should make more videos like this. I like how you used to comment more on the little subtly, yet funny thing within the game. Recently it seems you talk more about the game as a whole and just make jokes about it. Its all funny, I just really like this classic style of nerd reviews.

    bible buffet is kinda like a rip off of bomberman in the parts with the “exploding pancakes.”

    To bad they didnt may it a mario clone. Id much rather be killing koopas for jesus than i would stacking sheep, o well. It’s funny how shamelessly they would tweak copyright laws but atleast there were games that even some of the most hardcore jesus nut parents would approve of.

    To be some sort of smartass:

    The levels of Super 3D Noah’s Ark are all completely new, and are totally different from the levels of Wolfenstein 3D.

    This is not further amazing in sight of the fact that many levels or parts of levels in Wolfenstein 3D are swastikas (ๅ) when you look them from the top. One Super 3D Noah’s Ark level is a cross, and in another you walk around in the letters n o a h.

    In Super 3D Noah’s Ark are some features which are not in Wolf3D such as Question Objects and more weapons. This is another proof that it’s not a simple texture change mod.

    But I <3 AVGN =)

    Another question at James if he reads this:
    I have written a review about Super 3D Noah's Ark. Could you give me permission to take out pictures of your video showing the SNES cartridge of the game?

    If you want the link to the review in order to avoid being quoted in a potential shitty review, itโ€™s:

    The 2 big games I hope to ge and play by the time this Holiday Season comes around are “Transformers: War for Cybertron” and “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.”

    In speaking of Bible games, there are a few others, like Bible Adventures on the Genesis and The Bible Games for the Xbox and PS2.

    The title “Bible Buffet” is like some of the titles to games in Action 52, a big fat lie.

    Super Noah’s Ark 3D is possible the weirdest game I ever heard of. I call it weirded than Attack of the Mutant Penguins on the Atari Jaguar.

    Your classic videos always put a smile on my face. Not to say that your new ones aren’t great as well, but rather, your comedy ages well and really seems to never lose it’s charm.

    For your years of humor, I thank you. You are a credit to your faith. I hope the joy you’ve brought others comes back to you ten fold!

    Peace be upon you.

    aahh yes this was the first Nerd video i ever watch. I remember searching youtube for a funny ass video to watch and i stumbled on this wonderful gem. I remember thinking “Damn this is over 20 mins long! Well what the hell.” I am so glad I chose to watch this video damn near 5 years ago.
    Thanks for all the videos.

    Actually, “super noa’s ark 3d” isn’t the only unlicensed snes game, there was also ‘Sonic the hedgehog 4’ which was a hack of a Speedy gonzales game where the objection of the game was to save mario (I’m dead serious.)

    Made by “twin eagles group” a Peruvian video game company that made all kinds of counterfeit games including games for the pc (like a primal rage hack called ‘prime force’) among others that were basically hacks and arcade ported to other unknown consoles and home computers (like the Java or the spectrum 48k My guess is because those were easier to hack into)

    Just because he reviewed Bible games doesn’t mean he’s a Christian, I’m not saying he isn’t a Christian but it doesn’t mean he is either. Secondly “crazy Creationist who thinks that atheists like me burn in Hell” Go fuck yourself I’m a Christian and if you don’t believe in God you burn in Hell, simple as that. However I respect peoples beliefs so you judging every Christian like that really pisses me off, I mean I could judge you how every atheist comes off to me as. A people hating, racist, junkie, pussy, AnitChrist, prick, who runs away from any fight especially one about religion. Any atheist wouldn’t like that, so show Christians some common fucking courtesy by not judging every Christian the same way.

  • FleabagF7

    October 21, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    “I hope he isn’t a crazy creationist” comes off as “all christians are crazy creationists, i hate god”?
    Keep your angry religion-based insults to yourself and especially out of a comments section they certainly doesn’t belong in.

    This is one of my favorites. Lines like “You’d rather listen to your only infant child puking to death; that is choking on its on puke chunks….. That’s disgusting, I apologise.” are freaken hilarious. I like that he’s still coming out with new material, even though he’s filming a movie. But it’s nowhere near as entertaining.

    Bible mean “little books” or “little Library” So you can use the word bible on anything like the Grimm’s books or the mother goose books you can describe them as bible. As for the christian bible you can call the holy bible. So for bible buffet i guess it suppose to be books about food?

    That last game, Spiritual Warfare, actually reminded me, initially, of Hydlye. I know you hate that game but I liked it (It was just a horrible butchered port of the PC game ๐Ÿ™ sadly). The music is very similar to Hydlye, more so than Zelda and plays more like it.

    The myth that Id gave the source code for Wofenstien to Wisdom Tree to make the game is just that…a myth.

    Id made the game an open source game anyway. Anyone could make “new” versions of the game and many, many people did on the PC.
    It was just an open source game anyway. So Id never did give it to Wisdom Tree.
