        I wonder why zoomers like him so much since they don't have much in common with some 40+ year old dude.

        James is only a few years older than me so I kind of connected well with his childhood stories.

          Not that anon, I was 18 in 2010, and I had found Nerd's videos early on in 2006 or so. I think AVGN's general appeal is how James is just a dude going through some old games that you don't hear people talk about, with some potty mouth thrown in. That's like two topics most kids are into in one.

          Of course, there's also the fact that when it comes to older retro stuff, you hear the major popular releases or controversies, but rarely the stinkers that came and went. Everyone's played some bad games in their youth, so it's fun to watch someone's experiences with those less-than-stellar titles.

          AVGN videos are self-contained. You can enjoy them even if you didn't play the game he's talking about.
          Also he seems happy to share his childhood experiences with people who are younger than him. Unlike others who act like console generations are a secret club.

      Someone sits down and tells him that his home movies actually aren't that impressive, and only get praised because everyone loves cheesy home movies. James realizes he needs to learn actual filmmaking technique, so he uses AVGN as an outlet to improve as a director until he starts making the movie. For the movie he shoots locally, the cast is AVGN characters and it's basically an extra long episode of the show. Uses the movie to flex what he's learned and breaks into the industry.

      But this would never happen. One, because he's not that self-aware. And two, he doesn't have that much ambition anyway.

      AVGN movie was a mild success, he's and honest-to-god independent film-maker, no big break or A24 or whatever. Cinemassacre either becomes a real production company releasing direct-to-video b-movies or James finds one to release small trashy stuff, eventually grows a following and becomes like the takashi miike of the west.

          I saw James Rolfe at a grocery store in New Jersey yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
          He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
          I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Rolling Rock in his hands without paying.
          The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
          When she took one of the beers and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each beer and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

    Why is this guy incapable of creating something that isn’t centred around himself? The narcissistic fucker has made about 10 autobiographical documentaries. Even the “documentaries” he makes that aren’t completely about him, like the mowden one, are basically just travel journals in which he talks about himself constantly. I would’ve thought all this negative feedback lately might have opened his eyes, but no, he’s still a pretentious dickbrain.
