Bret Silverberg Angry Video Game Nerd: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1
September 27, 2008
This is an older one by AVGN—when you click the link it takes you to a youtube video from his days when his moniker was simply the “Angry Nintendo Nerd,”—but I couldn’t resist seeing him tear possibly my least favorite video game of youth to shreds: the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for NES.

This guy is truly amazing in that he represents EXACTLY what I was thinking when I struggled through all of these games, especially this pathetic excuse for a Ninja Turtles game. The same impossible jump spots, the same frustration with maps and game play, and the same disappointment when I realized that the game was utter garbage all those years ago.

This one shows signs of what AVGN would become in the future: the swearing is on point, the time spent on the points of the game that are really treacherous is there, and he even takes the time to pay homage to the later Ninja Turtles games that would actually turn out to be awesome.

Every nerd remembers a few things from his youth: video games and cartoons. The first Ninja Turtles game for Nintendo single handedly caused thousands of kids to question their fandom of both video with one click of the power button.
