Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie

Synopsis: The AVGN must overcome his phobia of the worst video game in the world to save his fans.

The Nerd:
E.T. on Atari 2600. To begin with, it's not a game you just pick up and play. Most games this generation were very simple. Shoot a buncha aliens, climb to the top of the screen, stop missiles or chomp down all the pellets. But E.T. is an enigma. With all these random symbols appearing at the top of the screen, and falling in holes all the time, it's no wonder why gamers didn't understand how to play this game. You have to read the instruction manual. So, once ya understand how to play the game... IT STILL F***IN' SUCKS!

(Laughter and cheering from crowd)

The Nerd:
When the game starts, E.T. comes down from space. Now he has to go back? Why'd he come down in the first place? All he had to do is stay on that ship... and there wouldn't be a game. And wouldn't that be better? If E.T. just came down and went right back up again? Was there any colors available besides just green? The ground is green, the pits are green, and even E.T. is f***in' green! I feel like I'm taking a color blind test. No matter where you go, you fall in pits. They're f***in' EVERYWHERE! You get out by extending your neck, which somehow makes E.T. float. When in the movie did E.T. extend his neck to float out of a pit? Once ya reach the top, most of time you just keep falling back in. Ugh, oh, f***! Here we - get out of the pit, get out of the pit. (grunts angrily) Ugggh, F***!

The Nerd:
There's a trick. You gotta f*** about with the controls just right. It's just a really bad learning curve. There's a way to catch yourself before you fall down, but you'll never be expecting it when you fall. Oh, look! Sh*t! The human brain can't react that fast! I don't know who can pull off that trick. Maybe ninjas that... take speed and sit around play Atari all day. The goal of the game is to find three hidden pieces of a phone that E.T. needs to call home with. And guess where you find 'em? In the pits!

The Nerd:
When you're walkin' around, you pass over these invisible spaces which hold special items. When you're standing on these spaces, you can use them to perform a certain action. For example, if you come across an arrow, you can use that to transport you to the next screen. But half the time, you're gonna end up on a pit! So if you wanna use the arrow, you need to remember what's on that space on the other screen, as if the game is forcing you to think fourth dimensionally. What is this game, for f***in' scientists?! It's marketed like it's for little kids, and that really shows a lack of communication. Also, the whole game works off a randomizer. All these zones, and the phone pieces, everything, they're always hidden in a different spot every time you start the game. Some fans have spoken out in defense of this game, saying that it's different every time ya play it. Kinda like how every time I take a SH*T, it's always different!

The Nerd:
What I REALLY hate are the FBI agents and the scientists. The scientist takes your ass back to the buildings and the FBI agent takes all your phone pieces! What an a**hole. Tryin' to outrun these guys without steppin' in the holes is a real pain in the ass. (The FBI agent chases E.T.) Uh... Come on! Come on, you motherf***er, motherf***er, motherf***er, come on! (E.T. falls into a hole) UGH! F***! And how come they can pass over a hole and you can't? Yeah, yeah, go ahead, pass over the hole again, yeah - f*** you. I'm gonna pass over your mom's hole! Even if you find the pieces, it's worth jack and sh*t, and Jack left town. That's because ya need to find the "Phone Home" zone also. It looks like a Space Invader alien, but there's only one in the entire game. And keep in mind, it's always some place different, so ya have to trace over EVERY f***in' space. It's like tryin' to find a needle in a haystack... or like a turd in a mudslide.

The Nerd:
All this senseless running around drains your energy. That's right, E.T. dies from moving around too much. So maybe I'll find the call zone first. After all, findin' the phone pieces are easier because the question mark zones show what pits they're in. Got the call zone! But oh f***, I wasted all my energy. Maybe I'll find the phone pieces first. (E.T. collects all the phone pieces) Okay, got the phone pieces, but oh sh*t! The FBI guy took 'em away. It's like a big brother who wants to give ya a noogie and a wedgie at the same time. And if ya do manage to find everything you need in one flawless run, guess what? You can't call home, unless there's nobody on the screen. So if the call zone happens to be on the screen where the FBI and scientists are, you're F***ED! Why does E.T. need to be alone when he calls? Like a... teenage girl. So when you find the call zone with all the three phone pieces and you phone home, then, you gotta make your way back to the landing zone, but even worse now: there's a time limit! Ya have to be standing on the landing zone, at the precise moment at the precise time when the timer runs out. And if an FBI agent or scientist walks into the screen, it doesn't work. Why does E.T. need so much privacy? Does he need to tug on his... little green beam or somethin'?
