    The games were bad but the show is awesome.

    • October 4, 2013 at 3:09 am

      Play bart vs the world its not THAT bad

      • November 26, 2013 at 9:15 pm

        shut up I played these games as a kid, and it scarred me for life, and that when I sleep, the game likes to haunt my dreams and remind me about their eternal presence in the world

      • November 26, 2013 at 10:46 pm

        I was a fan since the beginning, I was 9, and I got them for my birthday and I thought they would be the best games ever to enter my nes. but after 15 minutes, I was amazed about how amazingly shit it was.

    • November 26, 2013 at 9:11 pm

      the nerd say “these games suck shit out a straw”

  • May 7, 2010 at 8:46 am

    Fuck farts! We are not talking about the show here but about two of the games.

    i hated this game and this one really ruined my life thanks so much for makin this fuckin bart now i like simpsons games like for the wii and crap but back then it wasted all my fuckin money

  • May 28, 2010 at 12:34 am

    The controls in both games caused me many deaths, if the controls are the reason the game is hard, then it is a shitload of fuck. Classic AVGN Episode

    Great video but all I really zero in on when watching this now is the Batman Forever Super Nintendo video game poster hanging on the wall behind James. A game he would rip to shreds in a later video. Whats up with that? lol

    At least modren day Simpsons games are 1000x better that these games. I love The Simpsons. I watch it every day, and I enjoy the movie.

    Eat my shorts indeed.

    I agree that these games are terrible. James my friend the key and the whistle are not useless though. At the nearly end of the first stage you can use the key at the Springfield Retirement Home to warp back to Moe’s Tavern and the whistle at the Springfield Retirement Home to call Grandpa who throws you coins.

      actually, he said they weren’t necessary, not useless

    I don’t know very much games of The Simpsons that were any good!?
    The Simpsons Hit And Run was okay for the PS2 but apart from that… I don’t know of any others?
    James could have done a whoppin’ 3 or 4 parter on just bad Simpsons games…?

      I’ve been watching him since the ninja turtles episode in 06. Was unemployed and killed a lot of time on youtube back then.

    To Dickered:The game is Simpsons Wrestling

  • June 15, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Yeah, these Simpsons Games suck ass, but there are very good ones too.

    I beat the Game of the Simpsons Movie in one night with my best friend.
    It was a very funny and motivative. The Levels were so different from each other; many magic moments. Each char is fun. Every-time you find easter eggs or jokes of other video games.
    Well, the graphic is low and the controls are too easy, but for me (I love the Simpsons, since I started to think) there was not a wasted minute in this beautiful game.

      Akklaim was good with Mortal Kombat but couldn’t make a simpons game to save it’s life.

    Has he reviewed Mega Man Legends? That piece of shit is garbage.

    • PaulHagebock

      January 19, 2012 at 2:53 pm

      @quezocotl Legends was awesome and you should feel bad for your bad taste in games.

    • Luigi84289

      February 10, 2012 at 9:52 am

      @quezocotl Naw man Legends is a great game. Before I got my nes repaired in the early 2000’s it was how I got my megaman fix and it delivers 110%. I loved exploring all through those caves finding upgrades and powering up my shot.

  • PaulHagebock

    January 19, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    Oh man, I had Bart vs. the world when I was like 5 or so. That Ice level almost drove me to tears.

  • January 24, 2012 at 3:06 pm

    I don’t get why James focuses on the ghost and says “That’s pretty fun”. Am I missing something?

  • January 31, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    I don’t get why James focuses on the ghost and says “Ok, that’s pretty funny”. Am I missing something?

      @Jingleboy it’s Smithers, Mr. Burns’ assistant. Just a weird sprite, one of those things where they wanted to include characters from the show but utilize them in kinda stupid ways.

    I remeber playing it on a tv THAT WASNT IN COLOR. It was ridiculous.

  • Domarius

    June 20, 2012 at 9:32 am

    LISTEN – Bart’s voice clip when you die is “Eat my short” NOTICE THE LACK OF “S” on the end! Singular! Not plural!

    Me and my friend made fun of this when we hired it out back in the day. We imagined someone eating just one leg of Bart’s shorts, just to humour him.

  • July 11, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    I couldn’t agree more. I’m still waiting for Megaman Legends 3! I hope they make it soon!

    I could never get passed the second stage in Bart versus the space mutants…damn cement. Glad I wasn’t the only one who had trouble with that.

  • crosbienes

    ive played bart vs the space mutants and i agree with everything said the items especially and the game gives no joy just frustration

    The Simpsons game i remember playing as a kid was Bartman. That game was insanely hard and i never did finish it.

    • Vernon Schaal

      September 23, 2015 at 10:21 am

      Do you mean bartman? From the Simpsons game bart vs radioactive man

  • November 25, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    I loved that ending.

  • December 25, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    ta lair d’aimé la marde de chien en ostie xD tu en parle tous le temps…
    I like ur video!

  • July 14, 2014 at 5:40 am

    I love the sign in the mall : ‘52% off’

  • November 15, 2014 at 3:34 am

    If you look at the SALE! signs in the mall they say ‘52% off’ lol. All I can guess is they made a 5 and flipped it because of some ludicrous time constraint.

    Escape From Camp Deadly is the only home simpsons game I played that wasn’t total ass. it was one of the few Gameboy games I got for Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed playing it.
