    These top 10s are pretty good. There are a few different scenes I think should have made the list though.

      If I reply to the first comment my comment will be on the first thread….. Tits. Shit Pickle. Big fat tits. Monkeycheese. Great video.

        Thanks for stating the blatantly obvious about something nobody cares about in a pointless comment. Great job.

    Thanks for the video! That airplane never came back. It had to escape that terrible game…

    I finally get the joke where James tries to hit the cartridge with his cane and swings and misses…I thought originally he just missed, but its because the cane is fucking useless!! Clever! 😛

    I still laugh at “Chewie’s Wookie Cookie Cookin'” lmao

    I honestly thought the Nerd landing the aircraft in Top Gun with a Powerglove would be number one!

  • December 8, 2013 at 11:11 am


    I was surprised at TOP 1. Since it was Star Wars and the title of the video is “Unexpected moments” I was really sure that it was going to be Darth Vader turning into a bug.

      That’s not a spoiler.
      That wasn’t an unexpected moment.
      That’s a scorpion, not a bug.

    My favourite was #9! I remember going to the toy store when I was a kid and being able to buy toy metal shot guns and rifles that looked totally real. Nowadays, there’s no way in HELL you’d EVER find something like that at your local toy store.

    While kids may have some pretty Awesome toys now, growing up in the 80’s and 90’s sure had some great Perks!

    So awesome. I knew what number 1 had to be! So funny

    One scene that I thought would’ve been great for this is when you whipped the game in the Indiana Jones episode. It sounded like something legitly broke! xD I still wonder whether that was actually a real accident or not, and it always cracks me up when I watch it XD

  • December 8, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I was expecting one of them to be the Michael Jackson one where you turned into your cat, but #1 was so good!

  • December 8, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    The part with the buffalo made me laugh so hard I cried.. again! Never fails.

    I think Han said Boba Fett (translating Chewie) in Return of the Jedi, while they where on the Skiff, right before Boba Fetts unfitting end.
    But here’s another: Find the word ‘Ewok’ in the movies.

  • December 8, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    ya i agree. these top tens have been consistently excellent.

  • Ivan187

    December 8, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    Why some of these top tens aren’t published on YouTube? I want to download them so I won’t have to go to internet.

    How bout top 10 uninvited guest? Or top 1o instances of the nerd seal of disapproval.

      I think it would be awesome to there be “Top 20 Craziest Quotes” 😀

  • December 8, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    HA HA HAAA OF COURSE OF COURSE the number one on this list sould be the buffalo.When i first saw this i was burst to laughs because it was so freaking random,a revenge of shit storm after so many shit words.And you reaction screaming theres shit and glases all over the place was hillarious.

    There should be a top ten “I’d rather”, or a top ten final rant. The one in Friday the 13th ending with “it can kiss my FUCKING ASSHOLE” is one of my favorite.

    i was hoping the atari Jaguar bit would be at least no. 1 or 3

    I remember how much that buffalo threw me off guard

    I finally got a #1 right! I still think the lilypad jump from that NES Frankenstein game should have made it in the last countdown.

  • Aaron1375

    December 9, 2013 at 1:27 am

    I figured that buffalo would be number one, that moment actually caught me off guard!

    Okay, I’ll start by saying I really love top tens. Pretty much any top tens are interesting to watch.. However I must say I don’t really like the cut & paste stock footage from old AGVN episodes. I’ve seen them all 100 times Lol.. I know it makes sense for some of the Top Tens like this one but the others could use some fresh stuff or at least new commentary/voiceover.. Just a suggestion 🙂

    Number 1 was obvious XD

    I’m not gonna lie, that Atari Frankenstein made it extremely difficult to sleep at night.

  • December 10, 2013 at 11:37 am

    I think 3 should had been 1st

  • blazerstrike

    December 11, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    Good stuff. 😛

    “Or you could say, the game fucking sucks!” Best. Line. Ever.

    I love his videos. AVGN is my favorite thing and I watch his stuff more than anything. Have the Cinemassacre app, have a AVGN shirt, and some other gear. I still think that even James’ newer stuff is the most entertaining stuff to watch, but I can’t get over how good he was in his prime. His delivery in some of his older vids was so on point. Fast and funny and he didn’t have to go straight to the doodoo comments all the time. When I watch “Double Vision” It makes wish his newer videos could be like that again, fast delivery, educating, and completely entertaining. Since top tens are his new thing here is my suggestion for one of my favorite subjects with the Nerd…TOP TEN WORST LJN GAMES. More AVGN vs. Nerd please!

    • Blake Williams

      December 12, 2013 at 2:07 am

      That was supposed to be AVGN vs LJN!

    don’t remember the top gun plane going to land and off your tv and through the window, classic. you could’ve used Orson Welles’ voice for Optimus, nobody would have got it but would be a nice ode, though I haven’t seen the 80’s animated Transformers. Mario Hell bit is pretty immortal too.

    I’m surprised James calling Jessica Rabbit’s sex line didn’t make the cut.

    • Ivan187

      January 30, 2014 at 11:52 am

      That really wasn’t an unexpected moment.

  • January 5, 2014 at 11:34 am

    A great list, but I’m surprised not to see the Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties over-18/bondage moment. The look on James’ face still makes me laugh!

  • February 6, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    I saw that plane recently, it was flying into a buffalo’s

  • May 3, 2014 at 7:50 am

    The number 1 is epic win 😀
