It’s day 3 of the Nerd’s 12 Days of Shitsmas! You thought Big Rigs and Desert Bus were bad? Well check out CrazyBus!!

CrazyBus (Sega Genesis) Angry Video Game Nerd – Episode 124

“The 12 Days of Shitsmas” 3/12

    All right been waiting for this!

  • December 13, 2014 at 11:26 am

    Well, suck my monkeyballs and lick my buffalo’s asshole.

    Great man, thanks for the laughs.

      You have monkeyballs? I have a couple of questions. Was one of your parents a monkey? Did you get a ball transplant from a monkey? Can you impregnate other monkeys? Have you played Super Monkey Ball 2 on Gamecube? That is all.

    LOL, I get the feeling this was made just to piss off the Nerd, if this game has a retail price I feel sorry for the people that brought this, you are very unfortunate.

      Well, this was never sold in shops. It’s just a demo program to showcase a homebrew BASIC language compiler for Genesis. I think AVGN reviewing this thing doesn’t fit with his original theme of reviewing shitty childhood videogames, since no one could have ever got this for Christmas. Only crazy collectors have something like this, and they all know what they’re getting into when they get this.

    This game is a shitstain! Maybe it’s a sequel to Crazy Taxi. Awesome video James, this AVGN advent calendar is a really fun concept, it’s like AVGN meets Monster Madness crossed with Christmas. Must have been a lot of work but definitely worth it, good stuff

    • December 13, 2014 at 3:11 pm

      You shut your whore mouth! Crazy Taxi was gaming PERFECTION.

      Speaking of which, James and Mike should do the Crazy Box challenges.

        Cool down bro, he wasn’t saying that C. Taxi was bad, just that C. Bus may have been a bad sequel/ripoff of it.

      • awesome video games

        December 13, 2014 at 5:21 pm

        crazy taxi was an incredible arcade game come home for its time, yeah

      Fred Fuch’s severed head?

  • December 13, 2014 at 11:45 am

    Look at all those presents.
    What’s in the box?!

    • Weldin Dunn

      December 13, 2014 at 1:49 pm

      *boxes. I know. I can’t wait either.

      • December 13, 2014 at 2:36 pm

        In the movie “Se7en”, Brad Pitt’s character anxiously asks, “What’s in the box?”. I want to know, but I might regret it later. Happy Fucking Shitsmas!

      • December 13, 2014 at 6:17 pm

        Don’t you guys know…? Never talk about the Nerd’s Boxes!!! XD

    • Bunshichi

      December 13, 2014 at 3:06 pm

      its a dick in a box!

    What’s with all the bus themed games?

  • Larry Hood

    December 13, 2014 at 12:02 pm

    Oh and BTW, This was the funniest video you’ve made in a long while. Really enjoyed the random screaming and “CRAZyBUUUUUS… CrazyBUS…… CRAZYbus!”

    Gotta say, I like your into for these minis. Well done. And Shitmass indeed. Since the christians stole the holiday of Yule.

    • December 13, 2014 at 6:18 pm

      I love the typo you got there… That behind the Nerd, is a Mass of Shit! A.k.a… ShitMass! 😀

  • gsilver

    December 13, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    Wait a minute… The copyright screen says 2010?

    I need to investigate more into this one…

    • Weldin Dunn

      December 13, 2014 at 1:50 pm

      It said 2004 – 2010. It was probably changed for when it was put in the box

  • December 13, 2014 at 1:05 pm

    What. The. Smeg. Was. That?

  • windrammingroadkillskunk

    December 13, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    I knew after he reviewed Desert Bus that it would only be a matter of time before he reviewed this piece of shit.

  • generalleoff

    December 13, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    You should not give away what game it will be on the title card. Each installment should be revealed to the viewer when you open the present in video. Christmas should be a surprise.

    • windrammingroadkillskunk

      December 13, 2014 at 2:34 pm

      That’s a good idea.

    With the knowledge there are regurgitated anal cum bubbles like this floating around out there, I think it is time to recompile the list of worst video games in history. E.T.? Superman 64? Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Any of those would provide a heavenly orgasmic experience compared to this game. I think I would rather drink an Olympic sized swimming pool of abortion blood than play this travesty.

  • Bunshichi

    December 13, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    Still rather play this than CoD.
    Also, I want that Soundtrack in my car, just to piss off people who enjoy radio music.

    • December 13, 2014 at 6:21 pm

      If you know a little ZX80 basic, I’m sure you could pull it off. 😛

  • greedo

    December 13, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    Poor Nerd. The crap that he has to go through. And he still has 9 more games to go. I pity him. 🙂 BTW, what’s with that music, it sounds like twisted horror music from one of those psychodelic films from the 70’s. Weird!

  • Robin Wise

    December 13, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    This was hilarious ^^ This episode is my favorite part of Shitsmas so far!

  • Don Skiver

    December 13, 2014 at 4:30 pm

    Well. That wasn’t a Super NES or N64 game at all! Maybe the next one will be an N64 game. That box sure looks like it could be one!

    Oh yeah..almost forgot.. What a shitload of fuck, son of a bitch donkey balls, diarrhea fuck farts…and I don’t like it.

  • fallout1312

    December 13, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    omg that game’s opening music or all around sound was awful. gave me a headache. This broke the shit scale lmao…This game is so lazy. Who the hell would make this for WHAT AUDIUNCE. Just weird. Why make this game for real? AFTER desert bus I didn’t think it could get much worse….lol…I was wrong. Liked the video James

  • Ace

    December 13, 2014 at 5:10 pm

    I love the promotions on the back of the case: “You can drive left to right, or right to left! You can honk the horn! It’s CRAZY!!!”

    Horray, AVGN is back on form!
    I am so glad we can finally put ‘James Rolfe dressed as AVGN: The Movie’ behind us now 🙂

  • Peter Tomlinson

    December 13, 2014 at 7:23 pm

    What’s really crazy is that part of me wants to play this game just so I can say I’ve played a videogame from Venezuela. Using the term videogame loosly of course.

  • gluserty

    December 13, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    Wow, this here is really something…not much of anything, but it is something.

  • December 13, 2014 at 8:54 pm

    I think I understand the title…You have to be fucking crazy to play this shit-wreck. That or the music is will drive you insane. Is the CrazyBus soundtrack what the CIA plays to torture people?

  • Alexis Langlois

    December 13, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    Wow! AVGN at his best. No kidding.

    I gotta think somebody made this game as a joke. Funny review, though.

    • culwin

      December 14, 2014 at 2:54 am

      Actually I believe it was made just as a test program by a Venezuelan programmer. I’ve seen it reviewed before. It was never meant to be a real game, but yeah dumping it to a cart is a joke.

  • December 14, 2014 at 12:38 am

    i wonder whats in that big box

    • Jarnor23

    Greatest soundtrack in history

  • December 14, 2014 at 3:10 am

    The definitive game for the Venezuelan bus enthusiast!. ROFL. The soundtrack is a masterpiece, although it sound more suited for a horror game.

  • December 14, 2014 at 4:05 am

    I had to put down sound volume, it’s outrages o_0

  • Griff

    December 14, 2014 at 4:27 am

    Isn’t Venezuela like a third world communist country? No wonder this is the kind of game they make.

    • December 14, 2014 at 5:16 am

      Yes. We live in third world and our situation is horrible, I don’t deny it… although there has been some good Venezuelan games lately.

  • December 14, 2014 at 5:20 am

    Being Venezuelan myself, this is hilarious. LOL thanks AVGN. BTW, if you want to play a good Venezuelan game, there’s one called “El Canto del Autana”.

    How to win this game?
    Go backwards from start and you will get 65535 points right away!

    That soundtrack is crazy as shit! The game is just garbage.

  • December 14, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    Can I please suggest that games that are specifically made to be bad are disallowed from further inclusion? The humour in games such as this comes from the fact that it existed in the real world as a game, sold for cash money to unwitting children and imbeciles. The joke with Crazy Bus or something similar works only as an ironic shot and as an ironic shot it is neither insightful or cutting. Please don’t give these cliche peddlers any more credit James!

  • Jcr3ws

    December 14, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    If any bus fanatics or not there is no absolute reason to try and find anything positive to say about this product posing to be a video game. Nightmare Circus is better than this, and what a terrible game that was.

  • Mattheus

    December 15, 2014 at 2:19 am

    Thanks for the great videos James! The Christmas specials never dissapoint.

  • Kozas

    December 15, 2014 at 6:31 am

    Without any doubt it’s the best venezuelian video game I ever saw.

  • December 16, 2014 at 12:08 am

    Dear, James, I blared this in my car, as you and my brother had suggested, see here: http://youtu.be/FVC6QbSGeoU

    Happy Holidays!

  • December 17, 2014 at 8:19 am

    WOW I MEAN WOOOOW! That fellow that stick that piece of shit in that cartridge trying to make probably some kind of bus catalogue,sould have sega close him for a life in jail.Only because he used the sega logo and the box,he not only ruined their reputation but also a cartridge that another game sould be there.I wonder how that cartridge feels,it probably want to suicide i guess.

  • December 17, 2014 at 8:20 am

    Kill it james put it out of its mysery.

  • Kent Gissing

    December 17, 2014 at 3:38 pm

    I can’t believe it.. a game worse than Desert Bus.. :O …. and that soundtrack truly makes you long for the silence of the great-outdoors and the monotonuous droning of the engine in Desert Bus.

  • December 17, 2014 at 4:48 pm

    That music makes Winter Games sound like Beethoven.

  • December 17, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    When he said Fuck me sideways I lost it!!! Oh man that is hilarious!!!

    Can this be the absolute worst game ever made it to AVGN hands?

  • gamelover200

    April 11, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    Can’t win, can’t lose (or punished). Less of a game as possible? More like its a controller “game” of moving the bus around. At least desert bus, you can lose in that game.

  • May 1, 2015 at 10:01 am

    Has anyone noticed, that when you go backwards, get instantly max score? 65536

  • gamelover200

    July 2, 2015 at 11:55 am

    @ Előd Molnár yeah, because the score is actually the x coordinate of the bus, going left last the left side underflows the coordinates. At around 3:00. 65536 is the maximum value of a unsigned-6-bit.

    Hey James, have you heard the Crazy Bus rock cover? It’s pretty fucking awesome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b19MjOmYx0Y

  • November 27, 2015 at 12:08 am


  • February 9, 2016 at 1:58 am

    Such an amazing soundtrack, am I the only one who noticed that the shadow right behind the number is a 2 instead of a 3?
