‘There’s a plethora of gamer shows on the Internet and there are often too many of them to browse through. I will list the ones I follow, in an attempt to introduce you to shows you shouldn’t miss out on, and write why they are awesome. I’ll even give you a Link to the posts!
There aren’t many shows who really can show the enthusiasm of gamers as this one does. It feels genuine and the episodes are well made and have a lot of content, often centralized around the nostalgia of gamers that grew up late 70’s-90’s. There’s a full length feature movie based on the Happy Console Gamer, and it’s available on Youtube for free viewing!
While the guys behind Happy Console Gamer focus on nostalgia and the fun bits of gaming fandom, the Angry Video Game nerd is notorius for bashing and raging over really bad games from our childhood, be it games one bought with hard earned money and who didn’t deliver, games that were rented in vain giving us a dull weekend or games that are an abysmal abomination to mankind. He also reviews a lot of movies, which is a passion of his since childhood, and has a full length feature movie on the works based on the AVGN fandom which is to be released to local cinemas.
This is about two guys searching the state of Texas (and sometimes even beyond the borders of the state) in search of completing their video game collections. They are often able to get great deals, scouring flea markets, pawn shops and more, and fight competitively over rare titles. Basically it’s finders keepers, and the competition is tough!
Pat is a NES Punk. He collects first and foremost NES games and has a nearly limitless knowledge on all things NES. He also scours flea markets in Flea Market madness with his pal Frank in search of great deals. The episodes are mainly focused on comedy while delivering relevant information about the games.
Jirard tries to complete games to 100%, about 1-3 games a week, just to be able to tell you if a game is worth to complete or not. He’s accompanied by voice commentary from Greg, who has an impressive voice acting ability, and sometimes even lets him play some games as The Mediocre-ist, ultimately leading to Jirard suffering a mental breakdown and needing to get help to get back into the groove. It’s fun, it’s interesting, and well made.
Originally created as an anti-Angry Video Game Nerd, and even sporting a parody and “nice” version of the AVGN theme, this show has since then evolved to stand on its own. It’s about a dude that plays awesome games for you to show what’s good and what’s not. This is kind of a “feel good” show but with video games, and that’s great.
This is a gaming show mainly focused on portable gaming. It gives a pretty informative opinion about games, so this is all about facts and the presentation and gameplay of games.
This is a collaboration by the dudes behind the shows in Retrowaretv.com, where they summarize gaming since the 70’s year by year, painting an epic picture of video game development and history throughout the years- year by year. It’s both informative and humorous, as it becomes entertaining when all contributors get together with their different personalities and create a great mix of different opinions and video game knowledge.
If you like history and video games, like I do, then this show certainly is for you. We’re presented important facts from video game history in a professional and informative way without being bored in any way. That’s amazing!
He’s a game collector that has an impressive collection of both common and rare systems, initially having started his channel as he saw no coverage of the rarer systems in his collection on Youtube. He has an impressive reservoir of knowledge of all things games, and is possibly the nicest guy on Youtube.
Eric reviews games with a lot of oddball humour, ultimately giving a product of entertainment and a lot of laughs. Also he seems to know Japanese, so expect to have some Japanese words and names actually pronounced correctly for once. Now where to “put it”…
