      Bible Games. All of the early stuff is great though.

      The best episode may be Tiger Games though, funnily enough. The right mix of anger, nostalgia, childhood anecdotes and the games being genuine trash.

    Ninja Gaiden is one of my favorite niconico episodes.
    They're all great because you get interesting insight into Japanese video game culture.

    I hate that video game channels almost never just "quit" when the decline starts and call it good, you can find so many classic channels still trying years after they're relevant. At least Cinemassacre can still pull millions on AVGN.

    James is a charismatic guy. It's one of those rare things that makes me think Japan might actually have some decent tastes.

    Mike said in a 2019 stream that he knew AVGN was dead when they stopped receiving fanart. It was one of the reasons he felt it was time to move on.

    Is this still a room for AVGN style videos on youtube or has the market just changed?
    AVGN is kinda soulless now, still pops out some good ones but Screenwave ruined a lot of the channel.
    Jontron doesnt even like video games anymore.
    Never watched nostalgic critic
    Irate gamer... lol

      People want sincerity. The era of "grrrr GAME BAD!!" is tired and overdone.

        So do you think there is just no one has stepped up to replace the market in a good way?

          Plenty of replacements, whether they're good or not is up to your discretion.

          Shit like PBG, JonTron, Normal Boots people, even ProJared.

    I imagine its because japs all think Americans only speak in SHITPISSFUCKASS so when you have somebody who leans into that stereotype they think its profoundly entertaining.
