        I made sure I was first, just so I could not say that and post something pertinent instead. I hope you’ll do the same one day so we can grow up as a community.

        Also, James or Mike, please just put up the cash for Disqus comments.

        Why… why… I really don’t get it. You had to be aware of the fact that you were replying to a comment, and thus clearly couldn’t actually be first… and yet, you still posted an asinine “first” post anyway. You can’t possibly be that stupid, can you? You can’t not be trolling with this crap.

        The answer is simple: sort the comments by MOST RECENT.

      No need to place cash into Discus, simple code changes would allow the same. Also in regards to new episodes I see no reason to ask, they arrive when they arrive – giving a pleasant surprise from time to time. That said, we do now know that one is coming next month.

    Wow, I was way off. The ones I thought would have been in the top two didn’t even make the list at all. Darth Vader turning into a scorpion, and the glitched Clubber Lang.

    • Syph

      November 15, 2013 at 7:31 pm

      I was going to say the Darth Vader scorpion as well. Forgot about the Clubberfuck. I would also add Attack of the Mutant Penguins in there, too.

    • November 15, 2013 at 7:36 pm

      Game glitches would be too easy, though the Vader is a good point. I’d also bring up the 3DO Jurassic Park game. What part? Who cares.

        Darth Vader scorpion explained: Sasori Vader

  • November 15, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    “Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties” was definitely one of the most fucked up “games” James has ever reviewed. Especially when that karate chick shows up out of nowhere and completely hijacks the microphone, and then the narrator/chickhead gets into a fight with her struggling over the microphone, AND THEY ARE STILL RECORDING.

    “Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties” was like some kind of bizarre college experiment or something.

    The weirdest thing about that Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties game is that it was sold as a game in the first place. Just random slides, more like a choose your own adventure type thing…funny list, my favorite so far!

    Darth Vader turns into a fuckin’ scorpion and the Zelda CDi trilogy should have been in the top 3.

    • darxide

      November 16, 2013 at 11:23 am

      This whole video could have been the Zelda CDi trilogy. I’ve never WTFed so hard in my life. Worst part is, as a kid I had no idea the games were bad and I just kept playing them. Over, and over…

    cool top 20, I like these it always makes me go back and watch a featured episode.

    I think he gave up the nerd guys… Hes living his life, it was inevitable. Im not mad

    • November 16, 2013 at 12:30 am

      There’s a new episode coming later this month. The are no plans to end the AVGN series ever.

      • KennyM

        November 16, 2013 at 12:50 am

        I was hoping hed wait till December and make it a Christmas special, Long live AVGN!!! MIKE DO MORE VIDEOS/ GAME REVIEWS ASAP, I LONE YOUR STUFF!!!

        yes more Mike videos would be awesome!

    • November 16, 2013 at 1:40 am

      You must not come by that often to say such a line like that. He’s been slow on the AVGN because of the AVGN Movie and other projects he’s trying to keep alive too. He is just one man and can only do so much. James just put out a recent AVGN Halloween episode last month, and as Mike said, he’s working on a new episode due out this month. James may retire the nerd at some point, but it won’t be for quite some time.

    I miss the fucking Scorpion, one of my favorites WTF moments

  • Gaston

    What about the intro of the Zelda games in the CD-I?
    Great video!

  • November 16, 2013 at 1:37 am

    I was thinking either Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties or Rock for the PS2 from your game glitches episode for the #1 spot, but I am quite shocked you didn’t pick that episode for a part in this special. That was indeed some strange happenings going on there.

  • November 16, 2013 at 5:12 am

    I was really expecting Clubberfuck to make the list, but glad to see that Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties shit made #1.

    • mcnerven

      November 16, 2013 at 11:43 am

      Ha! That’s a good one too, completely forgot about that episode. I was surprised Darth Scorpion wasn’t on this list.

  • Alfy Bear

    November 16, 2013 at 6:57 am

    How is Darth Vader turning into a FUCKING scorpion not on this list!?

  • November 16, 2013 at 8:48 am

    I’m loving these top 10 lists and this is one of the best. I was wondering how would you top Dr Jekyll’s weirdness, but Plumber’s don’t wear ties would do. I kind of expected little red hood in there too, but the list could go on forever XD

  • Sakenomi

    November 16, 2013 at 10:48 am

    Where is the moment with Darth Vader turning into a scorpion?

  • November 16, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Huh; Jekyll and Hide occurs in Brussels, Belgium… no, wait, there’s only one Little Man Piss there. I guess it’s a town built by Little Man Piss fans.

  • November 16, 2013 at 11:05 am

    Awesome vid James

  • mcnerven

    November 16, 2013 at 11:42 am

    I really thought that Darth Vader turning into a scorpion would’ve been #1 on this list

  • November 16, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    i’m wodering why the star wars game where darth vader is turning in to a scorpion is not in this list. 🙂

    Please stop showing us old stuff just cut together, use the time to make new reviews instead! Big fan

    • TheBaron

      November 17, 2013 at 12:28 am

      There is really no need to complain and if you are, as you say, “big fan” then you should be aware as to the reason why it is slow and you should also be aware that these type of movies are a way to give content without taking away too much time better spent on the movie and his real life situation. And with an episode coming out for Christmas you really have no reason to complain.

    • November 20, 2013 at 5:01 pm

      Pretty sure Mike is the one putting up the compilations, since he’s the account posting them. I enjoy them in the meantime while James whips up stuff. Plus he’s got a family, don’t be a dick.

  • SpiderMunn

    In ‘ Plumbers don’t wear ties ‘, I’d imagine he is dreaming about the Panda driving the race-car, and the extra space around it may be the dream bubble.

    You left out Super Pitfall

  • lotusclown

    November 17, 2013 at 9:28 am

    can’t believe Darth Vader turning into a scorpion wasn’t even on the list.. like seriously that was the most mind boggling shit ever! lol

    Bram Stoker’s Drakula actually has one of the best video game music ever composed. Me and my friends realy adore these tracks. Well, maybe because all we are musicians and copmosers as well. This game’s music is realy great. As long as you have taste. Too sad my favourite reviewer James seemingly does’nt has it. Too pity.

  • icehead

    November 17, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    I wish he’d stop coming back to that moment he made fun of the name Fred Fuchs. First of all, I think it’s supposed to be pronounced “fyooks.” And secondly, that guy was a producer for the Coppola movie, which was why his name was in the game; it was not something weird the game was doing. It’s an actual person’s name, so can you please grow up about it?

  • November 18, 2013 at 2:24 am

    i have been a fan of your vids.. since… shit.. 06… i know you started in what.. 04? but man i still follow you and await the next vid.. no matter what it is.. i appreciate what you do.. and although im not commenting on this vid specifically… id just like to say.. thank you.. from monster madness to you know whats bullshit… thank you.. it is always a pleasure! – Loose Logic

  • November 19, 2013 at 9:21 am

    Anyone that has ever seen the review for “Plumbers don’t Wear Ties” knew it would be James’ number 1 pick…

  • Dan021

    November 20, 2013 at 5:50 am

    I remember when I saw Plumbers don’t wear ties for the first time with my cousin, when we saw the upside down chicken mask guy, we lost it. Laugh for a good 5 min because our brains could not process the data. JUST WHY THE FUCKING CHICKEN MASK UPSIDE DOWN FOR NO REASON!

    Lost it…

  • November 20, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I was hoping to see something from Cheetahmen haha. Oh well it did make the worst games compilation!

  • December 14, 2013 at 2:38 am

    Man, I laughed my ass off at this list. This made my day!

  • December 19, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    Fred fucking fucks

  • January 15, 2014 at 7:48 am
