        Oh how I fervently wish that anyone and everyone who makes “first” posts on this site (or any other site, for that matter), or any sort of variation on them such as banal “Wow great video!” posts or whatever, would be instantly permabanned. No warning or anything, just an instant ban forever. “First” posts are pointless and stupid and waste space on the screen that could have been better used by actual on-topic comments.

      • punkbikerdude

        June 2, 2014 at 1:30 pm

        It’s a new meme, who can be the first to post ‘first’ to the first post???

        …Seriously though, MY biggest wish is that the first page of comments for all the videos will flood with discussions about “first” posts. Because maybe then Cinemassacre will finally start deleting them, or at least reverse the post order so that people don’t have to put up with them. It’s pretty fucking stupid when you finish watching a video that all you see in the comments are posts about a stupid fucking meme and not the video, but I get the sense James/Mike either don’t really care, or maybe they actually LIKE ‘first’ posts.

        Anyway, if you can’t beat em’… join em’! Come on everybody, who can post first to the first comment to my first post to the first post???

        You do realize that if we are complaining about people saying first you are taking up even more space. Right?

      • culwin

        June 2, 2014 at 7:36 pm

        I’ll add to this.
        Hopefully Mike or somebody will add a filter and block this first crap.

      • OMA

        People who reply to the “firsters” are even more ridiculous than “firsters” themselves. If no one complained, those couple of “FIRST” posts would just take a couple of lines and that’s it. But no, we have to have these lenghty rants about it in every video. Also, I’m aware I’m also contributing to the rants by ranting about the ranting people so I’ll shut up now πŸ™‚

      • June 4, 2014 at 11:31 pm

        Thank you! People need to say what you said more often. “First” posts wouldn’t be so bad if people didn’t bitch about them so much.

        Bootsy has insane reflex by the way :O
        Idk how you guys don’t mention Ninja Gaiden 3 as being frikkin hard! It can’t be just me.. that game is soooo unforgivable.

        Let’s push the whole first page down until it is nothing but first/second/third posts.

    Epic!!!! Great video

  • June 2, 2014 at 12:48 am

    James, did you ever finish the Tell Tale Back To The Future Game?

  • Sergio Sarmiento

    June 2, 2014 at 12:56 am

    Hey james, now that its beaten, you have to do back to the future re-re-revisited, hehe

  • y2j420

    I’m the first to say First! I win!

  • Matthew Mercurio

    June 2, 2014 at 1:12 am

    Bootsy for the win!

  • Chris

    June 2, 2014 at 1:16 am

    How can a Mets fan find winning so natural?

  • Mike Chilson

    June 2, 2014 at 1:24 am

    I created an account specifically to congratulate Bootsy. I was on the edge of my seat during this one. Good job!

    Reminds me of Flappy Bird.

  • Xen11

    June 2, 2014 at 1:47 am

    I wonder how long it really took them to beat this. And they had to have used a level skip code because your lives would be eaten up very fast during the trials and errors, unless I’m mistaken and there’s unlimited continues that keep you on the level.

    This is such a disappointing game. Why couldn’t they make it enjoyable instead of a tedious trial and error course? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? I’ll tell you what they were thinking: “Let’s make a quick four levels and then up the difficulty to the max so that it makes a shitty four level game seem endless because its nearly impossible to beat!!!!! Yea. Money.” Fucking assholes.

    I had beaten many hard games,but this game is bullshit.Bootsy ia one hardcore motherf…er.

  • CodingGenesis

    June 2, 2014 at 2:51 am

    Once again, a nice James & Mike Mondays video. πŸ™‚ Now let Bootsy beat Silversurfer and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. πŸ˜‰

  • June 2, 2014 at 3:27 am

    Bootsy the pro!

    Hidden stuff in videogames uh? They never do that…*runs away*

  • June 2, 2014 at 3:52 am

    I wish you guys make James and Mike Mondays live on someday, it would be so awesome.

  • Pablo1989

    June 2, 2014 at 4:00 am

    Bad Luck Bootsy πŸ˜€ woooo!

  • Ace

    Shitty ending to a shitty game, but Bootsie > All

  • NashKnight

    June 2, 2014 at 6:19 am

    Is Bootsy that kid from Wizard? O.O

  • June 2, 2014 at 6:58 am

    Bootsy’s not having bad luck today!

  • magneto986

    June 2, 2014 at 8:02 am

    wow. never thought I’d see the day someone would beat that game. Great Job Bootsy!!!

  • June 2, 2014 at 8:58 am

    Bravo, Bootsy – and another fun gem from James and Mike. πŸ™‚ One of the weaker entries in the series, but it’s still an entertaining episode. Well done.

  • June 2, 2014 at 9:35 am

    Wow. After seeing this, I would like to see Bootsy playing through Adventures of Batman & Robin for the Sega Genesis. Hard as balls and has some hardcore music.

    • June 2, 2014 at 10:10 am

      I love that game! Once you’re on the glider level, it does get tough.

      • Aaron1375

        June 2, 2014 at 12:39 pm

        Yeah, that game is insanely difficult. I usually cannot beat the bosses in that one despite how much shit I throw at them, they usually die after the timer runs out. Strange game in that you win, when the timer runs out!

    • June 2, 2014 at 10:14 pm

      I’ve beat it just once and never made it through a second time. This game is tough as fuck, but it’s awesome.

  • Lazarus Nine

    June 2, 2014 at 9:59 am

    Great video. I’m wondering how long that took without the edits! Impressive work. That’s a lot of investment for what amounts to four levels. =)

  • June 2, 2014 at 10:09 am

    *slow clap* Bravo

  • June 2, 2014 at 10:34 am

    Have you ever heard of Cutthroat Island for SNES? I’d love to see a review of that…such an unfairly tough game! Worth checking out!

  • June 2, 2014 at 10:41 am


  • June 2, 2014 at 10:43 am

    Bootsy ftw! πŸ˜›

  • June 2, 2014 at 10:54 am

    Mike and James should make Bootsy beat more games! πŸ˜›

    He’s like the beat-a-game button!

  • June 2, 2014 at 11:04 am


    You know what is bullshit!

  • SleeplessKnight

    June 2, 2014 at 11:36 am

    What a pathetically short game. Could you imagine a game being released for the PS4 or XB1 for $60 with 4 LEVELS?! I guess the developers thought “ah fuck this lets just make the first level of the game start at the 3/4 mark of the movie and that way we’ll only have to make like half a game!” “But let’s make it hard as fuck so that when and IF a kid beats it, he’ll feel like he’s accomplished something!”

    • June 2, 2014 at 12:10 pm

      erm… in the late 70’s, you spent 50 bucks on a game that was like an upgraded version of Pong… I have a few Channel F games that still have price tags on. 49 Deutschmarks each. Imagine spending that much money (one lollipop or bubble gum for 0.10DM rechne das mal um) on a game that entertains you for a minute, then you realize the builtin games are sooo much better… (ok there are really good Channel F games out there, but the majority of carts just has crap on them – the combat game (videocart 2) has ONLY ONE LEVEL! And the only other game on that cart is a shitty version of that submarine hunt game on the Odyssey 1 (yeah I said that) – you can shoot but you can’t move! Carts 13 (Robot hunt) and 18 (Hangman) are the ones to get if you own a Channel F but the builtin hockey game if f’n awesome)
      50 bucks for 2k of game rom and games you can program yourself in a few hours. (today)

      Btw. I beat Silver Surfer. On NES. Btw. great work, Bootsy.

      • SleeplessKnight

        June 2, 2014 at 12:49 pm

        Well I was born in ’77 so I can’t really comment on stuff that came before that. However I’m simply stating that for a Genesis game, 4 levels is pretty sad. I played tons of Genesis and SNES games – in fact it’s my favorite era ever in gaming, and I would’ve been pretty pissed off if I saved up my paper route money and allowance to buy this POS game! Not just for the ultra-frustrating, borderline cheap difficulty but how bloody short the game was! There was SO much more about the Back to the Future III movie that they could have included in the game. Just flat out lazy developers looking to cash in on a popular movie franchise.

    • ToadRoad

      June 2, 2014 at 9:03 pm

      I was more engrossed in this than Back To The Future 3 the movie. I was actually cheering and raising my fist in triumph each time he completed a level.

      • ToadRoad

        June 2, 2014 at 9:04 pm

        Whoops, didn’t mean that as a reply. Sorry bout that.

    • June 3, 2014 at 5:00 pm

      I meant sure for a 16 bit era game it was extremely short. Especially since 2 of the levels look more like a bonus stage in a much much bigger game. Yes. For Genesis, that’s dirt cheap(except the price tag:-)). But 12 years before that, there were games that gave you NOTHING for all that money you spent. (not that BTTF3 on Genesis give you anything but frustration – but it HAD the BTTF theme).
      Btw. I was born in 1984, I just went retro in 1997.

  • Aaron1375

    June 2, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    Awesome, nice to see an older game featured on an AVGN episode…Bootsy gets in the zone playing games. He is simply going through the stage while James and Mike are talking about irrelevant things without being distracted. Good job!

  • June 2, 2014 at 12:46 pm

    could this be considered the re-re-revisting of Back to the Future?

  • June 2, 2014 at 12:46 pm

    Everything about this video was awesome.

    Applause from Boston!

  • June 2, 2014 at 12:51 pm

    bad luck bootys must now be renamed good luck bootsy

  • June 2, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    In one word: Skillz!

    To quote Darth Vader: Impressive

  • June 2, 2014 at 5:51 pm

    Conglaturation Bootsie, you have beaten this frustrating game and prooved the justice of our culture, now go and rest our heroes!!!!1!

  • Bridget

    June 2, 2014 at 7:11 pm

    Further proof that James and Mike suck at games.

  • V3g3t4

    June 2, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    Not one minute into the video and Mike said “fuck” again….

  • June 2, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    now i wanna get this game

  • Marty Wayne

  • muehltime

    June 2, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    I remember renting this game for a weekend. I was completely unaware of how hard it was. (How could you go wrong with BttF?) It was one of the first games I was really angry at, even as a rental , because I spent the whole weekend and couldn’t get even close to beating the first level. Watching this video…. I was super tense and excited to see what happened. What an achievement!

  • muehltime

    June 2, 2014 at 8:57 pm

    make a GIF of James’s look to the camera and back at 4:40!!!! That is priceless.

  • gluserty

    June 2, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    Seeing this game being beat was fantastic. When I first saw that this game was the Monday video, I wondered if James and Mike needed a CAT scan in even attempted to try their hand at this again. But wow, I like what happened here with bringing in reinforcements; it really panned out. Man, this game is criminally short though.

  • culwin

    June 2, 2014 at 9:40 pm

    Bootsy is the fucking MAN

  • June 2, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    wowsers that was pretty amazing stuff…. I think you are gonna need a spinoff called
    “Bootsy Beats __”

  • Joker83

    June 2, 2014 at 10:31 pm

    That’s incredible! Never saw that. Bootsy should make guest star videos of him dominating classic games. Never saw someone so good at back to the future 3 let alone on his first try. Bootsy is awesome

  • Joker83

    June 2, 2014 at 10:33 pm

    Agreed lol

  • Kenshiroh

    June 2, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    There’s also a Back to the Future II game for Genesis, which appears to be the same as the Commodore 64 Back to the Future II game (and completely different from Super Back to the Future II for Super Famicom).

  • June 2, 2014 at 11:56 pm

    Wow! Congrats!

  • June 3, 2014 at 5:16 am

    I had this on Genesis back in the day. It was toughish but I beat the whole game a few times with my brother, wasn’t *that* hard! I was always a bit disappointed that it only had 4 levels though.

    What a shitty ending for such a difficult game.
    Great effort, anyway! Kudos!

    June 4, 2014 at 7:01 pm

    Wow, Bootsy is such a good friend. He apparently didn’t even watch the nerd-episode or else he would have known about the game πŸ˜›

  • mason saltalamachea

    June 4, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    Bootsy has never watched AVGN because he doesn’t know what the hell there is to be so angry about…

  • June 5, 2014 at 3:04 am


  • jooch

    June 5, 2014 at 5:46 am

    One of the best James & Mike Mondays so far! Bootsy is hardcore πŸ˜›
    I think having guests on the show is a great addition, keep it up.

  • Mike Hann

    June 5, 2014 at 10:48 pm

    James should produce a new show starring Bootsy; It could be called the Even-Tempered Video Game Nerd…

  • June 6, 2014 at 2:19 pm its a hover board from Back To The Future 2

    Yea. That’s real.

  • Kushdc

    June 8, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    Bootsy is a great addition to mike & James play mondays maybe he can be a guest every other week or something..please reply to my message or I will rape something

    • Kushdc

      June 8, 2014 at 4:28 pm

      it will be an angry rape with crying and yelping maybe a little barking too

  • June 9, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    I really enjoyed this episode guys, I was screaming with you all along, so happy you guys won it!!

  • June 10, 2014 at 5:04 am

    Bad Ass Bootsy!

    Hey, I have enjoyed all your videos for a long time now. Just registered. All you guys kick ass. Lot of the games you show bring back some fond memories and that I thank you.. I recently seen a video on Youtube about Back to the Future III but not for NES OR SUPER NES OR SEGA GENESIS. It’s for the C-64. And believe it or not. It does seem klike and interesting game. You guys should make an episode on the C-64 version.. Here is the link to Youtube video Keep the vids coming fuckers πŸ™‚
