    They’re actually making a remake of Haunted House for the 360, Wii, and PC.

    James, I think the game Halloween was created by some Satan worshipers. You were wondering why the score you get for rescuing a kid was 675. Well, I have a theory.

    675 6 7-1=6 = 66 5+1= 6 = 666

    That’s it. Basically, you take one away from the seven and give it to the 5. 666. The devil’s number. Yeah, I guess Satan didn’t want to come out yet.

  • October 7, 2010 at 4:22 pm

    This is a candidate to be the best AVGN episode! I’ve seen it like ten times and is still funny as shit! Oh, yes. I don’t know what shit is…

    Hey why won’t u review E.T. the game is an asshole.

    • June 16, 2013 at 1:03 pm

      I believe AVGN is too scared to review it, since it caused the videogame crash in 1983, and was panned by every critic and gamer around the corner. I also think James do not want to torture himself in that crappy game, so he can have a happy life from now.

    I always liked this review. I tried to find the music that plays around: 13:21 … but haven’t found anything I’ve seen TONS of youtubes/myspace and other things and haven’t found it. Anyone have any idea?

    I think you made a little mistake when you speak about the Frankenstein game.
    You’re not a regular man. In fact, it’s seems to me that you’re doctor Frankenstein, the one who create the living-dead creature.

    It’s a common mistake, Frankenstein is the human, the one who assemble the creature.
    The name of the creature is “The creature of Doctor Frankenstein”, simplified to “Frankstein’s creature” simplified to “Frankenstein”.
    Perhaps you’re very aware of that, because you said “Frankenstein’s Monster” when you describe the monster.
    But if the game is “Frankenstein’s monster” it would be rather logical that that the guy is Doctor Frankenstein

    So in fact the game is doing well as you play Doctor Frankstein working to awake your creature.

    Ps: Sorry for the quality of my english, It’s a message from across the Atlantic.

    Is this the genesis of the Atari ET thing? And also a Kindergarten Cop reference?

    James is such a good guy that he couldn’t even ask the kids to stop hitting him at the very end there. He glanced to the father to politely let him know that he had enough. Then the father told the boys to stop. I don’t know, it just seemed genuinely nice.

    “It’s not chocolate, nor is it poop. It’s SHIT!”—> this line always gets me.

    The Nerd actually reviewed 3 games in this video, awesome. Excellent episode, one of my favorite story-based ones. The kids did a great job too.

    Maybe because I’m a graphic designer, but I really find incredible that they actually sold the games with the name written with marker in a piece of masking tape. I mean really? Even a xeroxed copy of the label plastered with some cheap glue would have looked better that…. Even the cheap label on the recycled Cheetahman II cartridge looked better.

    I’ve been trying very hard to track down the song at 13:20… No luck at all. Is it specifically made for this episode, or is there an original one? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    • Mssnor

      December 17, 2011 at 6:59 pm

      @AngelBarbosaOrta I think it’s just the music specifically for the episode, avgn does this all the time like his crazy castle episode

    Actually, Mr Nerd, if you watch the original Halloween, the killer is never referred to as Michael Myers. The only reason anyone knows that is his name is the parents saying ‘Michael!’ in the beginning of the movie and that it’s the ‘Myers house’. In fact, in the ending credits of the movie, he is credited as ‘The Shape’. This is because we aren’t supposed to identify with him as a person, but as a nameless, faceless force of evil. That’s why he’s called ‘The Killer’ in the game manual.

    • Don Skiver

      August 1, 2016 at 9:26 pm

      If you watch the credits, Mike Matei is credited as “The Shape” (in basement) and “Shape #2” (in living room) is Liam Mulvey.
