    btw you are really the shizzle. AVGN is awesome. My other favorite was the dragon from my past video. Nostalgia is a good thing i think. Just wanted to show as a fan my gratitude for the videos. So thank you for entertaining me. Go PA. yay!

  • April 6, 2011 at 11:37 pm

    Can’t wait for the AVGN Movie now!

    I used to have those Jurassic Park games on the genesis. They were actually a couple of my favorite games (I was really into Jurassic Park when I was a kid). I actually got pretty good at those games, and got very far in them. Don’t remember if I ended up beating them though, they’re tough as hell.

    Great episode James…I take off my hate to the AVGN feature film project. Keep up the excellent work and I hope to see you on the big screen someday soon

  • almightydrewsus

    April 6, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    When you mentioned you were making a movie, I had a feeling you were saving E.T. for it. Glad to see it is in the works. I have really enjoyed all of the different short films you make so I am excited to see a feature-length film.

  • Jigglysaint

    April 6, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    Ahh, you finally got around to Jaws. You know, the earliest memory I have of that game was I was in some department store in the US(I’m Canadian) and I recall being in a section that had the game up for display and for play. I think I recall that day also as the day I bought Legacy of the Wizard, and I also recall my brother teasing me about something that I would eventually find out to be Wrecking Crew. Man, I’ve got all sorts of NES related memories. It’s not like today where you can just walk into a store and get a game. No, back then it was an event that was etched into your mind for ever.

  • April 6, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    How sad is it that Jaws is one of LJN’s better titles? lol
    BTW how hilarious would it be if “Super Schindler’s list 3D existed?”
    I was laughing so hard at the Jurassic Park 3DO minigames. They must have been high on crack. ET Go Come sounds like a low budget porno haha

    Great video James!!

  • Lodmot

    April 6, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    That was great! xDDD
    I can’t wait for the movie now dude.
    If it comes out in theaters, I am DEFINITELY seeing it! No force will ever stop me, god damn it! O:<

    Wow, I guess we know what the Nerd has planned for the movie. I do think this is the perfect time for the break; even the Nerd made a comment in this vid about the poop scthick getting old (and then following up with a funnier joke). AVGN is already a movie-worthy character. Let’s save the best shitty games for the film and see what he can do with them.

  • JayRam

    April 7, 2011 at 12:00 am

    good episode! Look forward to your future projects.

  • April 7, 2011 at 12:01 am

    Lol, I’m watching it right now but I thought you were gonna take a break with AVGN. I’m glad though since it’s a big surprise and now you’re tackling some of my most hated games.

    April 7, 2011 at 12:06 am

    Great video, James! And I just have to say, BEST DAMN CLIFFHANGER IN INTERNET HISTORY!!! Can’t wait for a chance to see the movie. The break in Nerd videos sucks, sure, but it’s going to be well worth the wait.! Besides, there’s more Board James and You Know What’s Bullshit coming this year, and I’m really excited about that. I always thought Board James should be a bigger part of what you do.

    In any case, good luck with the movie! I would gladly do whatever I could do get that bitch a theatrical release!!!

    Awesome episode James, can’t wait for the movie!!!!

  • April 7, 2011 at 12:11 am

    That 3DO Jurassic Park looks like a shitty version of a game they would release on the Wii now for 20 bucks.

  • April 7, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Good luck with the movie, now we know why you never reviewed E.T. The Extra Testicle =)

  • April 7, 2011 at 12:16 am

    I don’t know if there’s something wrong with my flash player or something, but I saw “(random blurry colors) The Movie.” I’m assuming from the announcement and peoples comments that it was AVGN The Movie.
    Ever since I saw the video announcing the AVGN movie I knew that the review in it was going to be ET. There’s no other game worthy of an AVGN movie. I am ridiculously excited for this now.

  • macer

    April 7, 2011 at 12:18 am

    An AVGN movie?! :O Best of luck with everything!

  • TerragonSix

    April 7, 2011 at 12:18 am

    Good work James, nice video. I think its great that you put some detail into the character of the Nerd, and ET is almost like a weak point to AVGN; like Superman and his Kryptonite, the Nerd can’t stand to play one of the most hated games of the 20th century, and honestly, one of the attributing reasons of the video game crash of ’83.

    I wish you good luck in your feature film effort. Hope everything goes according to plan and without a hitch during development.

  • lcvolt

    April 7, 2011 at 12:20 am

    it was kind of predictable something was going on with et when he took the game box. then i expeted he would talk about et on a continued video, or maybe delay i. anyways, the drama was really funny, and continuing it in the movie gets me really really excited. i hope it might be done by 2013 or less. Is this the last nerd episode untill the movie?

  • thesnake383

    April 7, 2011 at 12:21 am

    Whenever you need support from your fans, we’re all ears!

  • April 7, 2011 at 12:23 am

    I always thought Jaws was the best LJN game, but thats like saying “In the name of the King” is the best Uwe Boll movie… they all suck!

  • fistathon2000

    April 7, 2011 at 12:27 am

    Great video James, you reviewed a few games I have been waiting on for awhile: Jaws and the Jurassic Park games, those were ones I played as a kid. Best of luck with the movie. You should set up a paypal account or something similar that people fans can donate to.

  • Splimis

    April 7, 2011 at 12:29 am

    Super Schindler’s List 3D needs to be made. Now.

  • April 7, 2011 at 12:32 am

    Son…of…a…bitch…lol! I knew you were gonna do that. Good review James. Very classic AVGN. Reminded me of videos like the Atari 5200 and Simpsons reviews. Can’t wait to see the movie come to fruition. Take it easy and hope to see the Nerd back in full swing very soon. : )

  • SpeedyEric

    April 7, 2011 at 12:35 am

    Awesome concept for an episode, James.

    I like the first Jaws film (I have the 30th anniversary DVD), the 2nd film is a bit of a rehash, and the 3rd and 4th films are crap …just like all the Jaws games.

    I’m one of those people who likes “Hook.”

    Super Schindler’s List 3-D. Man, that was hilarious and unexpected.

    Man, there were alot of games based on the first Jurassic Park film, but that was to be expected, because it was the biggest film of 1993. I also find the 3DO game weird as Hell.

    I was wondering if it will be E.T. on Atari that you’ll review on your movie. Good luck, and God speed. 😉

  • iamspider

    April 7, 2011 at 12:35 am

    Glad you haven’t reviewed E.T. the Extra Terresticle. Everyone else has anyway. Plus, given the history of its production, who could expect it to be a good game, right?

  • VideoGameDork

    April 7, 2011 at 12:36 am

    awesome Back to the Future part 2 reference. also i cannot wait for the movie. Please get it done.

  • Silgon

    April 7, 2011 at 12:37 am

    Well looks like the next episode after your little “break” will be about E.T. Still James, i say that you need to make some episodes where you review some PS1 games since i think you’ve only reviewed like 1 or 2 games in that console i believe.

    Well i hope that everything goes well in the AVGN movie and the other movie your playing a role in.

  • adenton7

    April 7, 2011 at 12:38 am

    ha I was like noooooo when you had the cliffhanger at the end. I hope your movie is a huge success and I hope that it is in a theater near me. I would go to see it opening night. I cannot wait for it. I would think that it would get done reasonably fast by movie standards because you already have the script completed but what do I know about making movies. Keep doing what you love and do not work too hard.

  • Josh7289

    As soon as AVGN said there was going to be a review in the movie, I KNEW it was going to be E.T. It’s finally coming. And great review James. Just the kind of review I’ve wanting from you.

    Hook for Sega CD was actually pretty good.

  • Nileman234

    April 7, 2011 at 12:57 am

    I cant beleave u have reviewed my most hated games in my childhood thanks James for reviewing The Jurassic Park Games i hated those games so much the films where amazing and wonderful and the games remind me of what shit can do to great games. by the way what happen to your facial hair? oh well great review James can’t wait for E.T. I Hated The Jurassic Park Games!

  • April 7, 2011 at 1:00 am

    Great, great review. I especially enjoyed this one, as I have played the Genesis Jurassic Park games, and watched someone play through Jaws. My friend beat Jaws in a few hours, maybe less, if I recall. Not exactly a horrible game, but worth the price of an NES cartridge back in the day? Hell no. Rental, maybe.

    Jurassic Park and Rampage Edition for Genesis were both great fun. They do have some issues and BS, but are good games, for the most part. I beat both all the way through with both characters. I didn’t realize the games for the other systems were something totally different! Thanks for the education!

    Ooohhooohoo so we finally see what the AVGN movie will be about. I am looking forward to that. I wish you all the best of luck on this movie venture, and we’ll be pulling for you, man.

    I’ve been watching you since the Angry Nintendo Nerd days on Youtube, years ago… and I’ve also loved your other videos you’ve done… this will be the pinnacle! Oh man, it will be awesome! Can’t wait, man!

  • Nileman234

    April 7, 2011 at 1:07 am

    hey CptRavyn your not alone the same thing happen to me i didn’t even know what it said Blury colors the movie?

  • April 7, 2011 at 1:19 am

    Haha! I knew it.
    Since James made the video update on “future AVGN plans” I knew E.T. was part of it because what better game for the nerd to review than the one that almost destroys an entire industry.

    James good luck with it, if you have to take a break I, personally, wouldn’t mind. I know you work really hard and I really want to see that movie, I’ll fucking buy it 🙂

    I wish you all the luck.

    By the way, I don’t know if you’ll read this (I wish you would) but I’m a fan of all your work, my favorite being “The deader the better” I just go crazy watching all that blood.

  • krorie

    April 7, 2011 at 1:21 am

    I had all the SEGA genesis Jurassic Park games and i loved them. I spent many hours replaying them and I thought Rampage was AWESOME!!!! i think you may have been a little harsh.

  • pc_malinwa

    April 7, 2011 at 1:30 am

    lol i predicted this 1 day before he announced it. Anyway can’t wait.

  • April 7, 2011 at 1:34 am

    I’ll buy the movie, please provide a link/way to buy it. Loved this episode.

  • April 7, 2011 at 1:41 am

    What a cliffhanger ending!
    Looking forward to the AVGN movie 🙂

  • April 7, 2011 at 1:45 am

    Such an excellent episode before the hiatus. Favorite part was the BTTF2 reference, and I must’ve missed the reference to American Movie (guess I’ll have to re-watch sometime).

    Looking forward to AVGN: The Movie, and am hoping it gets some sort of theatrical or festival release whenever it’s completed.

  • komlev

    April 7, 2011 at 2:16 am

    Hey, James. You’ve missed Jurassic Park 2: The lost world on Sega. It is got nothing to do with the movie but, it’s one of the best games in sega library and it is worth checking out. Best jurassic park game on old consoles.

  • lander77477

    April 7, 2011 at 2:25 am

    Hey James, are you using a different microphone in this video or something? The audio sounds a bit muffled and not as crisp and and bright as all the others, either that or maybe the software is encoding the audio differently?

  • April 7, 2011 at 2:37 am

    Jaws sounds like an early version of pokemon. Walk about… fight things… power up… fun fun fun fun.

  • jasonw131

    April 7, 2011 at 3:03 am

    I actually had the SNES version of Jurassic Park. I burst out laughing when you said “THERE”S NO SAVE FEATURE!” And you’re right, you can’t play the game in one sitting, it would take too fuckin’ long.

  • Fredward

    April 7, 2011 at 3:07 am

    This was a damn good episode, and it’s great to finally know when the E.T. review is coming. Excellent way to hype up the movie, I’m fucking stoked. It will be better than having a magic leprechaun come and bring you beer.

  • April 7, 2011 at 3:10 am

    oh you asshole!

  • April 7, 2011 at 3:36 am

    Now this is a vintage AVGN episode. Great job!

    If for some reason you find yourself near Pittsburgh while shooting the movie, hit me up!

    April 7, 2011 at 3:48 am

    Say what you will about the NES Jurassic Park, it had some seriously catchy music! It was instantly familiar when I heard it in the background, even though the last time I heard it was when I was playing the game back when it was new!

  • TheAntih

  • 1point44megsOfun

    April 7, 2011 at 5:17 am

    I recently completed Jurassic Park on SNES using savestates/emulator. It always bothered me that I never finished it. The lack of a MAP really pissed me off, but I managed it somehow. Then I was treated to a classic Ocean Software ending, “congratulations, you have completed the game, now fuck off”.

    If you like the music in the NES version, it’s ripped off from Comic Bakery for the C64: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nf29ShkoAiA

    Looking forward to the movie; I know people who use the word “epic” are douchebags, but I’ll take the heat and say it’s going to be EPIC.

  • Dark Omega

    April 7, 2011 at 5:36 am

    E.T. can’t possible be as bad as its being made out to be, can it? I always thought Atari (and all era consoles) had a capped suckage factor. So now I’m really curious to see the movie follow-up to this.

  • Xen11

    April 7, 2011 at 5:54 am

    Holy shit James!!!! I swear, I was just thinking about all the Jurassic Park games today, going through each one in my head. I was looking at an old GamePro on the toilet. It had The Lost World for the Sega Genesis. I was thinking about how SNES and Genesis both had overhead and sidescrolling versions. Jurassic Park for SNES and Lost World for Genesis were both overhead and Jurassic Park plus Rampage Edition for Genesis and Jurassic Park 2 for SNES were both sidescrolling. For Playstation, there was The Lost World plus a Special Edition and Warpath, a fighting dino game like Primal Rage.

    So yea, I was thinking about all this today while taking a shit. No, I am not shitting you. I’m dead fucking serious.

  • ScaryManiac

    April 7, 2011 at 6:08 am

    Let me say this. It was the best way to advertise your movie. There’s no need for a trailer anymore. You just made everyone excited by now.
    First, I thought: “oh shit…he’s going to play it. please don’t play it, I’m not prepared for this yet”
    Then I thought: “oh..he’s just advertising..for the movie maybe?”
    Then at the end” Oh, shit…he took the game out of the box…he’s going to do it!!!”

    This was just perfect! I couldn’t imagine a better way to prepare the fans for this.

    James, you rock! 🙂

    P.S. I think it says DINO on the Floppy disk 😛

  • M3n747

    April 7, 2011 at 6:57 am

    Super Schindler’s List 3D was too much, I honestly couldn’t stop laughing for a good while. 😀 Thanks for this. 😀

    Yeah, I knew you would save ET for the AVGN film, what better choice?

  • Filmmassacre

    April 7, 2011 at 7:00 am

    i knew E.T would be the review in the movie!

  • April 7, 2011 at 7:27 am

    Though I think Jurassic Park games would have been a more appropriate title, I really liked this episode. It was kind of back to the basics style. Though I do wish you talked about the SNES version of Hook (BTW, yes, I like that moivie).

  • Etkar.H

    April 7, 2011 at 7:44 am

    James, you really should make a teaser trailer for AVGN: The Movie before you start filming the movie…

  • April 7, 2011 at 8:10 am

    That would be pointless Etkar. He should wait until he has some footage to.. you know, TEASE us with. Otherwise all you’re going to see is some dumb video with text in it that isn’t reflective upon the quality of what the final product is going to be anyway. He’s already teased us enough with his two articles on the subject. The next announcement he makes on it should either be production blogs or a trailer.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but weren’t there plans for another Jaws game on the NES at sometime? I clearly remember as a kid seeing a screen shot for a totally different Jaws game in the coming soon section of Nintendo Power. I was really excited, but never saw the game made.

    Anyone else remember that issure / screenshot?

  • April 7, 2011 at 9:18 am

    my wish was half granted, i cannot FUCKING WAIT FOR AVGN THE MOVIE!!!

  • April 7, 2011 at 9:30 am

    LOL this one seems like one of the classic AVGN vids. So simplified and filled with awesome ANALogies. “I didn’t even move the length of a gnat’s dick!”

    One day, The Angry Video Game Nerd should make an appearance on The Big Bang Theory. That’s a crossover I’d watch. How would they do it, I don’t know. All I know is it’d be nerdtacular!

    I own a atari 2600 , and I recently found the ET game and played it, good lord I have never played anything as horible as that game its imposible to play, I bet that game got atari to go bankrupt . Any ways good review James and that Snes Jurasic park the chaos continues was awesome I use to play that game with my neighbor when I was a kid for hours it so fing hard

  • VGRetro

    April 7, 2011 at 10:01 am

    I own ET. I am probably gonna be the first person to say this, and people are probably gonna criticise me or laugh at me, but I don’t think it’s really as bad as people say.

    I still think it’s a very, very bad game, but I have honestly played worse games. It’s kind of like Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde, which I’ve also played. It’s not as bad as everyone says, but it is still very bad.

    Mind you, I hate Strider for the Mega Drive, so what do I know. 🙂

  • TheAceofSpadez

    April 7, 2011 at 10:35 am

    Great episode!!!!!! I hate tht there won’t be another episode for a while, but hopefully there will b great things from Cinemassacre between then and now.

  • VGRetro

    April 7, 2011 at 10:36 am

    I also have another question for you, James.

    Now that the Nerd is on hold, so that the movie can be made, what does the future hold for a DVD release of these four episodes?

    If you ask me, I think these episodes should be added to the DVD of season 5. That way, the DVD will have 17 episodes, just like the first season. With that, there’s at least 4 hours and 40 minutes of reviewing alone. If you add special features on top of that, you have a decent DVD release. You would have a decent release anyway, even if it was just the 13 episodes of season 5, but adding these four would make sense, considering how the show is pretty much on hold until the movie gets out.

    I don’t know, maybe this isn’t the right place to ask this kind of question, and I’m not sure if either you James, or you Mike, will even see this comment, but I hope you will consider it.

  • April 7, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Great Video James..I played that jaws game when i was a kid..I never had the patients to beat it…..Keep up the good work..Im looking forward to your AVGN movie…Here is a animation i released about a month ago..Ill have a new one out in about a week..Im doing my best to complete one every month.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ls4GDGOfg60

  • April 7, 2011 at 10:54 am

    Suck a tease sir! I cannot wait for the movie! I had a feeling that ET would be saved for the movie. I hope there’s a scene written in there where The Nerd goes to Arizona and digs up a copy of ET.

  • hagenNORKANOIA

    April 7, 2011 at 11:05 am

    haha, the title of the “ET GO COME” game is german!
    “UFI und sein gefährlicher Einsatz” means:
    “UFI and his dangerous mission”
    whoever the fuck UFI is…cuz its not ET… cuz ET’s german name is ET

    I knew it! I figured, the way you were staring at that cartridge, that it was a set-up for the AVGN movie. This was a good episode! I can survive not seeing the AVGN for a while. I can’t wait to see what you create!!

    Question and a comment:
    Where’s that “Hill Valley having an antique shop opening in 2015” line from? Back to the Future?

    I ended the video after it said to be continued. Based on other’s comments about the movie tease at the end, I had to rewatch the end. I didn’t know there was more text after “to be continued.”

    this is great work james

    I was five when my parents brought home an Atari 2600. E.T. was one of the first games I ever owned and was THE first game I ever beat. I tell people this and they usually don’t believe me stating that “The game can’t be beaten.” Lies. I assure you it can and to this day I defend it as NOT the worst game ever made. Ever played Baseball for ATARI? That’s a turd. Pull down on the joystick and swing. Homerun everytime. What the shit is that? The biggest pile of shit I think I’ve ever played was also a Spielberg movie game, and previously reviewed here: Indiana Jones for ATARI. How can anyone think that POS is better than E.T.?

  • April 7, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    I liked Jurassic Park for NES and SNES (SNES was once in a while for me back when I was a kid). I wasn’t lucky enough to get Zelda but Jurassic Park was my first over head adventure game. I’m willing to admit not every Jurassic Park game was good, but there is a few actual good ones and can’t wait for the reboot that takes place during/immediately after the first movie.

    Good movie James! I like the topic you chose. I wanted to point out that the past few videos you’ve made have become hazy an strange colored towards the end of the video. I’m not the only one who has noticed this and I think you should check them over and make sure they’re ok.

    Can’t wait for the movie!

    April 7, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Man I remember the pain of Jurassic Park on SNES, no save feature and only 2 weapons that really did efficient damage to the dinos, especially all the bs with collecting everyones keycard and traveling in circles around the map. I recall when I played and beat the game, I had the SNES on for like probably 2 days straight. Also you gotta love how when you win, you’re on the top of the high score list but it doesn’t matter since it goes back to the preset madeup initials once your turn the game off

    ET for the Atari 2600, you can only put it off so long…hey, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a reviewer actually BEAT it. they keep getting hit by the federal agents before they can collect the phone pieces and quitting in frustration.

    Super schindlers list 3d.. man I hope thats in the movie LOL

    As scary of a sight as E.T is for the Atari.. I still can’t help but think that “Taboo the Sixth Sense” for the NES is the worst game of all time… Every time I look at the game I feel enraged to a point of blackouts.. and blood covered clothes.. just kidding! but not about Taboo.. its the worst

    Best of luck with the movie! catch ya on turtle tuesday

  • April 7, 2011 at 2:28 pm

    To Sacia and Killzone – He isn’t going anywhere so I don’t understand where your getting your information from. He said he is gonna take a little break to make other videos in his other series. He can’t make other videos when he is always working on the AVGN. You make it sound like he is never doing AVGN again. Learn to comprehend what people say instead exaggereating the truth you dumbasses.

    So is ET for the 2600 more bad then Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for the NES? What about the other ET games? I have a copy of ET and my mom loves it. I have tried to play it but never can really get anywhere.

  • April 7, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    Excellent build up to the movie James! Words cannot express how excited I am!

    Jurassic Park is one of my all-time favorite movies. I own the Rampage Edition as well as the SNES game. The SNES Jurassic Park has some kick-fuckin-ass music in it. I agree wholeheartedly that the biggest problem with that game is that it has no save feature. I don’t know how many time’s I’ve sat down to finish it, only to get pulled away.

    Again, awesome episode James, can’t wait for the movie to get in motion!

  • April 7, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Also I have to agree…this is some sort of cinematic masterpiece. What I mean is, this is the most epic cliffhanger that has ever existed.

  • April 7, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    One last comment @ the people who say “I’ve never seen a reviewer who has beaten it”

    Niero, founder of Destructoid.com has beaten E.T. Ask him about it :p

  • K-dub

    April 7, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Now that’s more like it! Funny, to the point, and full of background. That’s all you really need with an AVGN (nothing real over the top like the 100th). The jokes worked here, and you keep us hooked even after the video. Fantastic. This episode is probably one of my faves now. Like I said before, your complilation vids are the best! Keep ones like this coming James!
    Oh yeah. I also have JP on genesis. And wow is it more fun to play with the raptor! The human dies too quickly. It’s fun a bit later into the game, until you have to figure out how to open doors. (I couldn’t EVER.; which stopped me from beating it). But yeah thanks for talking about it.
    P.S. (You’re back)

    Only one thing though, I’ve been reading everyone else comments – and – amd I the only one noticing the video becoming all fucked up by the third quarter of the video? This happens in the Star Wars episode as well – what’s with that?

  • April 7, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    I have an odd story about how I got a hold of Jurassic park part 2 for Snes, I was at the good will and i had no video game systems whatsoever, I saw something that looked like a video game system and my brother asked my dad if we could get it so we checked it out and it was a sega saturn with tomb raider 3 in it, but we thought the games went in the memory slot, they hade jurrasic park part 2 there so they gave it to us for free. now skip 6 years later we have a Snes and I pop that game in, I experienced that same problem and I found out 1 year later how to get past it.

  • April 7, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    Is that THE ET game that caused the Video Game Crash? From videos, it doesn’t even seem that bad.. >.>

  • recompile

    April 7, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    I honestly don’t understand the aversion to E.T. It’s actually a pretty good game, well ahead of it’s time. I had it as a kid and I really enjoyed it.

    The only change I’d make would be to AND CXP0FB on 0x40 a scan line or so before the end of the E.T. sprite to let the player walk in front of the wells. (In Zelda, for example, you’ll find that you can walk halfway “into” blocks while walking up, but not while walking down. This change would have the same effect.)

    That one minor flaw aside, it’s a great game.

    Let’s hope that James takes the high-road and puts the “E.T. sucks” myth to rest.

    and fuckkk, you’re finally going to review E.T.? Damn, I knew you were saving it for a special occasion since it is THE game that everyone did a review on except you.

    The sad thing is, the best Jurassic Park game I ever played was the handheld standalone that I won from Chuckie Cheese’s. It was just black pixels over a holographic like background (hard to describe). But anyways, all you did was climb trees and avoid the oncoming dinosaurs and continuously press down to “run away” from them. Even though as black pixelated sprites, they looked like they were running in place.

    DON,T PLAY E.T. If you do, bring any protective gear for emotional needs. That game drove my dad crazy when he was young. My grandmother is still annoyed from him screaming, another hole! I actually burnt that game by accident when i was at my cousin’s bonfire. Like James, my cousin has a crap load of old games in his basement. He got bad eyesight from testing his Virtual Boy he got from a pawn shop.

    I think the problem with the episode getting all glitchy near the end only occurs when you watch the streaming version on GameTrailers. I downloaded the QuickTime version of the video and it played back perfectly, without any problems. Screw you, Glitch Gremlin!

    I guess, with the movie being your main focus, we’ll have to do without new Nerd episodes for the coming months… It’s going to be really hard, but we’ll get through SOMEHOW. 🙂 Seriously though, good luck with your efforts.

    I remember that Jaws game when I was a kid. My friends parents bought it for him for Christmas. We stopped playing it because we couldn’t figure out how to get past the two docks
    (thought it was an adventure game). What a depressing game. I remember his mom was like “That game was expensive” and “Your not going to get another game for Christmas”. Then I remember his dad saying “I’m going to play it if you don’t”. I remember we started to play it for like 10 minutes right after she said that and then said “fuck it” and went outside. After coming back we seen his dad playing it (probably trying to encourage us to give it a shot). Afterward, that same day his dad came up to us and said to my friend “Just play the game one more time in front of your mother”. We asked if he liked the game. I remember this EXACT response, “You don’t have to play it anymore, but after your mother forgets about it, trade it to a friend for a movie or baseball cards or something because the game was expensive”.

    LJN is such a fucking destroyer of good times and happiness and possibly even future Christmas’ for families.

    I really, REALLY like AVGN, that’s why it is so sad for me that James didn’t notice that JP is one of the best games for NES… not to mention it has one of THE BEST classic music themes. Come on James, you pick on shitty backgrounds or door and you won’t even mention Comic Bakery… It’s just a shitload of fuck, really ;p

    Good solid episode from nerd.

    Not so many animations of shit dropping from… well…

    Little angry here and little angry there.

    Huge plus for those new games that you reviewd.

    Not some bloody remakes from games you have already reviewd.

    Or some damn robot that can play 2 different nintendo games whit you,
    if you dont have any friends or something.

    Sorry.. i didnt really like that one.
    I think there was too much extra show in that episode.

    But enough of that.

    I really enjoyd this episode and i will watch it over and over again.

    I think it’s terrible how many people feel the need to voice their shitty opinions about how they think James isn’t doing a good enough job, or that he shouldn’t be taking a break from AVGN to work on other projects. JAMES AND MIKE ARE DOING IT FOR FREE, AND WITH VERY LITTLE OUTSIDE HELP! Think of all the garbage you pay for. Are you really gonna bitch about the free stuff? Really??

    Most of you people have never tried doing anything creative in your life, and can’t even begin to wrap your mind around what it takes to keep a project like this going on a small budget. I, for one, look forward to ANYTHING he puts on this site. It’s a privilege to have someone this talented who is willing to take his free time to make these awesome videos. And what does half of his fanbase do? Comment on his site about how shitty of a job they think he’s been doing! It disgusts me…

    Now don’t get me wrong, constructive criticism helps. However, a lot of you are just hating. So, if you can’t say something nice or helpful, go get ass fucked by polar bear on meth and let your grandparents watch! That’s about all you’re worth….

    This episode remembered the classic ones. Brilliant. I work with motion graphics and what I could say is that you’re awesome at video edition. Your way to edit makes your reviews so interesting, so unique. Nowadays, it’s hard to find something as original. I always have a good time watching your reviews. I hope you never stop to do it cos you’re amazing, Nerd.

    By the way, great review, as usual. Hugs from Sao Paulo, Brazil

    I had the SNES Jurrasic Park game as a kid. I never knew where to go except collect eggs and shoot dinosaurs. It was pretty fun and the music was awesome. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for the movie and other projects. I miss You Know Whats Bullshit and Board James. Keep it up! Everything you do kicks ass!

    @KarateKidIcarus That has to be one of the funniest stories I’ve read in a long time – even though it was a depressing story it’s great that we can laugh about these things today.

    @DeadRoaches I completely agree, lot of ungrateful SOB’s I see posting – James could give a shit but it’s nice to see someone speak up.

    Great Vid – now Maximum Carnage is prob the only LJN game I take seriously . I def remember playing JP for SNES as a kid- was pretty fun, but never remember beating it – NO SAVE? WOW.

    hey, James. No, i’m not going to tell you to review solstice, (i’m actually looking forward to ET. on atari.) But I want to ask you a question. I’m thinking of doing my own game reviews on the internet, but mine are going to be computer games. My question is, can I use “angry” in the name? i’m thinking of “angry computer game nerd.” don’t know if i’ll have a theme song, but if I do, it won’t be like yours. so can i use ACGN?

    I am 19 and a big fan since my friend referred me to you. I’ve seen all your episodes, and as of right now, I just watched Super Mario Bros. 3 and the wizard for the 3rd time! it’s my favorite! i am also re-watching the whole series. Well, bye James. I hope you read this and consider it. thx!

    LOVE IT JAMES! I like all the episodes, but the last couple I was worried about you getting bored with The Nerd. This was an AWESOME EPISODE that I watch everyday! Love the ending dialogue about the Jurassic Park franchise!

  • ReggaeSoul

    April 9, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    Nice video! Your videos never get boring and for some reason every one of them seems new. You are creative with the character and if it was someone else it would have got boring to this point!

  • mosaic.wav

    April 9, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Heh, you actually almost had me with the “Super Schindler’s List 3D.” Just for a second. The part I probably liked best from the Jurassic Park was the 3DO version for how surreal it was, plus your responses to all the strange elements. The end was clearly setting up for the next episode, but felt a little soft. Not bad, but a little loose. Seeing that weird game cover near the end was special, though. Gotta love shitty cover art.

    @Damon: I’m pretty sure if you use “Angry Computer Game Nerd” it’ll just make you look bad. You should try to come up with your own original name that reflects you. It’s good to be inspired by someone, but no one likes a copycat. :]

    The game you called E.T gocome
    the title is UFI und sein gefährlicher Einsatz what means UFI in his dangerous assignment. Sorry for this text but we germans can’t speak english. Whatever I once have seen this game in an old Quelle catalog, probably put together by communist GDR programmers on old Robotron computers.
    Never played this one, maybe ist really rare, even in germany.

  • VGRetro

    April 10, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    I hope James makes a joke out of ET. My brother suggested that the whole film will be a build up to the ET review, with the Nerd ultimately saying it isn’t all that bad. I doubt that will happen, but it will be funny. I hope the film will be about the Nerd trying to find ways to play and review the game, but at the same time finding ways to avoid doing it. I’m gonna watch Rocky and Wayne’s world back to back, because I’ve seen Rocky, and if James makes the film like that, I can see how the film is gonna work. It starts with him reviewing games, maybe recaps of old reviews, but then the film is about building up to ET, with the climax of the film being the review. If that’s how it will turn out, then the film will be pretty awesome. I doubt it’s going to be the best film ever made, but it’s certainly gonna be a great one.

    Hey james i am your biggest fan. I was wondering have u actually considered playing games from a a franchise that started out good 2 crappy in the end

  • mdgeist3

    April 11, 2011 at 12:52 am

    So how can you make a 1 1/2 hour long movie about E.T. for the Atari 2600? Will he do a spoof on bad Spielberg movies or perhaps Speed? Maybe he will go on a Saw tangent? Waking up in a strange place with a chain around his leg? He has to play E.T. to find clues for his escape? Instead of a Jig Saw puppet it is either Mr. Bucket or an E.T. plush doll?

  • mdgeist3

    April 11, 2011 at 1:33 am

    Ooh an other thought. Mr. Bucket is in the room faking his death due to the drowning in Board James and he is sitting in middle of the room and Mr Bucket is using an E.T. Plush as his Jig Saw avitar? Maybe have Mother F*er Mike in the middle of the room chained with the Nerd? Perhaps have Super Mecha Death Christ 3000 B.C Beta save him in the end just to have an epic battle at the end?

  • Mr.Z

    April 11, 2011 at 1:36 am

    Play the god awful ass-ness that is ET and speak for all of us about how much it sucks. I played the game even though i knew the instructions and i still hated it. I felt like going to mexico to crush and bury the game myself.

  • Freaknut

    April 11, 2011 at 3:37 am

    “Coming Sometime”? Way to leave us hanging.

    And all I’ve heard for the past x years is how bad E.T. is. Is it really that big an abomination that even James has to build up the courage over years and years in order to face it? It’s only an Atari game, so how much worse can it be from most of the titles back then?

  • April 11, 2011 at 8:19 am

    first of all.. that was great episode.i do enjoy it
    and about the avgn movie. well, i really REALLY love to see mike on it plays like… a villain role. that would be hilarious LOL

    thank you james 🙂

  • Grimmjow Jeagerjaques

    April 11, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Wow…so the eventual E.T. Nerd video’s going to be so epic it’ll have to be featured in the Nerd film to see it’s full potential. Man I can’t wait.

    @Freaknut: The E.T. Atari game is one of the most INFAMOUSLY bad video games EVER created. It’s had this reputation for over a decade at least. Maybe longer, but I can’t remember exactly when the legend started among mainstream gamers. I know for a fact because of how bad this game is, it sold poorly and is one of the reasons Atari went under in the 80s, and brought the home video game market down with it until Nintendo resurrected the market with the NES.

    The Jaws game kind of reminds me of Final Fantasy, because when you’re trying to move around, you’re always getting side tracked because you come up against something and have to fight. So I can imagine the annoyance you experienced.

  • April 18, 2011 at 11:07 am

    Yeah, it had to be ET. To make an AVGN movie that will have a game review in it, you kind of need a game worthy of the web-series.
    But I’ve read that ET is not that bad. Will James rip it apart with gruesome comments and give it the worst punishment he ever gave to a game? And then, will he be traumatized with it throughout the movie and try to learn how to live with himself after the horrible experience? Well, if I know James like most people, he’ll probably make one great and inspired story, whatever happens in it.

    Not so keen on seeing a E.T. review in the movie. It’s NOT a good game, but there are far, far worst out there.

    I hope James finds a way to talk a bit about it’s history and how it became so overrated. I’m just sick of hearing kids go “OMGOMG E.T. IZ TEH WORST GAME OF ALLL TIME I READ IT ON TEH INTERNETZ”.

I tried playing that game so many damn times because the music in it was AWESOME, as well as with Jurassic Park SNES, but at least THAT game was BEATABLE! Jurassic Park II was just….A nightmare. Ugh, sucks too because that game reminded me a lot of like a 2D Turok 2: Seeds of Evil for N64? It’s awesome the first few levels, then it just becomes ridiculous. I like how you can tackle different missions anytime ya want, yeah, but that still doesn’t fix the absurd difficulty at areas like….The, BLOCKADE!!! Grrrrfffnurfit!!! *rants horribly for an hour*

So not only do their advertisements freeze up the AVGN video about a minute in, but it just randomly goes to the next vid if you don’t turn the ‘continuous play’ off. I hope they pay you a good amount of cash James. PLEASE PUT ALL OF THESE ON YOUR YOUTUBE PAGE!

    ET? to be coninued til the movie? Oh my god you are going on a quest to find the secret burial site of the holy grail of crappy video games. That site should be left alone . Don’t you remeber what happened in Raiders of the lost ark? It was buried for a reason. If you do uncover it do not look at it or sh** will fill your eyes.

    very nice review, but I think you left out some of the old jurassic park games, I know you were reviewing some of them but the old PC ones were pretty gamn good, there is one called Danger Zone and another called Dino Defender, I’m sure there are more but those are the two I remeber and a third one but it may be the one which is unplayable, anyway, great review, and have a nice day

  • June 27, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Is it just me, or does the kid on the cover of the E.T. box look like Chunk from The Goones? Goonies, another Spielberg movie that spawned a shitty video game. And weirdly enough, the game isn’t called Goones, but rather Goonies II, which makes you think there is was a Goonies I game, but there wasn’t on the NES. The game is a sequal to a movie. WTF!!!???!!!

      @Gintoki Sakata E.T on Atari was so horrible that it crashed the video game industry and nearly ended video games altogether until the Super Nintendo was released and due to its great success, revitalized the industry.

    if you are really a fan of the nerd go buy a ticket and see the a u cheap bastard, it took him 5 years to do the movie announced in 2011 and he will have it by 2016, for this effort he shouldn’t put it online, he should put it in a MOVIE, seriously he is working his ass off and doing it (the nerd) all by himself and you just whine about it being online, why dont u be the nerd for a change

    I played the Super NES and Genesis version of Jurrasic park and found the genesis much easier. The Super NES was okay at least the first person shooter part was good. One thing I didn’t understand about it though was why the dinosaurs you encountered in buildings didn’t come after you like they do outside. They just stand there and stare at you and don’t even attack unless you get to close. I mean why did we have to wait for Doom to get enemies like that in a first person shooter game, because the enemies in Doom when they saw you they were on you like white on rice.

  • NerdyScholar

    October 21, 2011 at 7:03 am

    Easy for you to say “go see the Nerd’s movie in a theater”, since you most likely live in US. But I, for example, live in Russia (and i’m pretty sure there’s a lot of nerd fans all around the world, including remote areas of Sahara desert), and what are the chances of AVGN:The Movie being released in theaters in Russia, or Brazil, or Germany… well, anywhere outside US? F*cking zero! So it would be really nice to have a movie online – not for free, but online, so everyone can see it.

    The ET game was so bad that it, together with the huge amount of consoles that were really just either Atari copies or pong consoles, caused a video game crash.

    Why wouldn’t he hate it?

    • CTeakettle

      November 30, 2011 at 12:17 pm

      Basically, it was such a huge disappointment that people either wouldn’t buy it at all or sent it back to Atari. It was that bad, and it was expected to sell pretty well. It was a huge loss, and contributed to causing the video game crash of 1983, together with the Atari port of Pac-Man, and of course also all of the games developed for all of the consoles released around that time. It just got to the point where people weren’t really interested in buying new consoles, and stores just could not sell anything, resulting in many big companies from that time going bankrupt.

      Then the NES came out. It revived the game industry.

    I remember the Game Gear version of Jurassic Park. It’s was actually really fun to play. Even the Lost World sequel (which thankfully didn’t have much to do with the movie) was very good. At the very least they are a testament that, several years down the line, a movie can become a good video game and not just a cheap, pre-movie-release abomination.

    I loved Jurassic Park as a kid. It was an awesome game. What killed it was that you can’t save. Nobody wants to play a game, get really far, die, and then have to start all over. Usually once you die you’re too pissed to even want to do all of the work again.
    Also, Peter Pan had a sword in the movie Hook. He also never got hurt by touching water. In fact he always made out with mermaids when he was in the water so if anything the water should heal him or something.

    I won’t be very popular for saying this but I can’t stand Final Fantasy games and that hunk of junk Jaws games is a perfect example of why I hate them. You go from a to b, level up and constantly get into random battles that infuriate me. Okay, so you can make it look stunning and put a nice story over the top but when it boils down to the bones, they are the same piles of steaming dog crap.

    Two things about the SNES Jurassic park game.

    Thank goodness for emulation and save states it actually makes the game playable.

    You can tap L or R to remove the dialog boxes immediately. This really is a good game and well worth playing. Just be ready to take notes because you will need to remember what id card lets you in where to do what.

  • January 4, 2014 at 11:01 pm

    Spielberg was a great director and still is, Spielberg games on the other hand…not so much. There is one factual flaw that I find that is forgivable because that most people don’t know about it. It’s that T-Rex was a scavenger, not a predator.

  • April 10, 2014 at 6:36 am

    I was both terribly excited and disappointed with your Jurassic Park game reviews.
    1. Jurassic Park : Rampage Edition is named that because it is a much more action oriented game than the others and the Raptor enters rampage mode after consuming those metal box things for some reason, I think maybe they stop up his gut or something.
    2. I’m sure you could have looked it up and I admit to having tons of issues with it myself but the Aviary with Grant is a simple get to the bottom of the level to win, same with the raptor but you have to first go all the way up then cross over to the second half of the map.
    3. I was surprised at no mention of The Lost World games but perhaps those are for anther time, The Sega one was very good when I played it, prob hasn’t held up well.
    4. That original game with the bazooka (a reference to the book) was ported to the hand held and if I remember correctly a bit better on there. There was also a really bizarre 2nd game on there as well with a side scrolling outrun the Trex level.
    5. Pretty shocked you didn’t mention the difficulty on Jurassic Park 2: The Chaos Continues, I never beat a single section of the game. Though I do admit to be terrible at video games.
    6. No love for the music in Rampage Edition?
    Keep up the great work~ Hope to see you revisit some of these again.

    I normally don’t feel the need to tell the Nerd how to do his job, but to be honest, I feel an episode dedicated to Jurassic Park games would have been better rather than fitting them into a general Spielberg Games episode. Seems like a lost opportunity to go into depth with what was a pretty big franchise in the early ’90s. Could have even made a pretty fun production out of it.

    Hook may not be a good game for everyone, but the film is at least one of the more memorable adaptations from the world of Peter Pan (alongside with the 1953 Disney film and the Mary Martin musical as examples). Also, Robin Williams did a good job playing a grown up Peter Pan who is reluctant to reconnect a long forgotten childhood, yet willing to rescue his children. May that role (along with Mork and the Genie to name a few) and Robin’s sense of humor live on.
