The Adventure of Anger

The game we love to hate (actually, some of us do love it) and the nerd we love to hate (again, some people actually love him) are finally together. The Angry Video Game Nerd rants and gushes about Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

While it’s all the rage to dump on the black sheep of the franchise and you’d expect the Angry Video Game Nerd to follow suit, he just may surprise you. Like a certain ZU news correspondent, it seems he played this game when he was a kid, and while he can recognize all of its flaws, it seems to hold a special nostalgic place in his-

Who are we kidding? True to form, he yells and screams and curses at the game. Yet all the while he seems to love every moment of it.

Watch the video after the jump.

    I HATED THAT GODDAMN GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chainoftermina

    I watched this last night and laughed my ass off. it was awesome…………actually, when I saw the title card for it I, well, I…….I tried to submit it here, in the "submit News" thing. but I've never done that before, so maybe I did it wrong….eh, whatever. So long as you guys know about. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No, it looks like you did submit correctly. However this article was written last evening. We held off publishing it until this afternoon to give our other articles a little space.

      However, because you're so awesome, I'll go ahead and edit it to credit you for the tip. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I don't understand why he has such a problem with it, I mean, I beat the game twice already! At least he liked the game, 'caus he hates Skyward Sword…

    • Becca

      He actually likes Skyward Sword. He was just joking when he said he was angry with it.

    • You know he's just acting, the Nerd is a character. Don't believe everything he says and does ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Well then he's good at acting.

  • Fuji

    It´s his job to be a nerd ! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • hero of twilight

    im starting to like that nerd

  • Daniel

    I have that poster

  • Wow…

    Looking back, I'm glad I didn't go on with that game. I'm sure I'll play it again sometime and actually beat the first boss this time (maybe…) and just die over and over again in the second temple. I'm not complaining, but that seems how my life keeps going. :-j

    Oh, and thanks for the warning, Bastian, though I should probably read it before rushing into that bombard of obscenity next time. ;-]

  • I love AVGN ๐Ÿ™‚ I don't like AoL much though, I suck at it. ^^'

  • Keith

    Lol I suck at Loz1 and 2. Bleh. But the Nerd makes me lol so hard. XP Thanks for posting this.

  • matt17

    I was shocked to see this. I always wanted him to review this game. first time I played through it, I was ferious with it, but the challenge was fun. now I know what to do and its fun, but still pretty hard.

  • James: Wow, someone beat me to posting this. That never happens! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • TheyCallMeTim?

    who hates james? i friggin love him lol

    haaa this guy is funny. link does hold things up every time he finds something!

  • TheMaverickk

    I actually like AVGN's stance on Adventure of Link.

    He recognizes the flaws, but then justifies them by saying in reality there were lots of games that held that standard in that era of video games.

    Mentioning that even though the game is tough, it wasn't that strange in that age of video games. I mean really the Mega Man games were just as challenging (still as challenging today) or the Castlevania games for that matter… he also brings up the point that Legend of Zelda didn't have the defined "overhead" style at that point as well.

    It is actually in a lot of ways a lot more of a defense of the game then an attack on it. Although it does sum up the frustration of other aspects of the game though.

    I still love the AoL though. I'm glad he covered it in either case!

  • Bravo

    He seems to understand the game pretty well. HARD AS NAILS combat, GUIDEBOOK-COMPULSORY puzzles, but extremely rewarding.

    So long as you level up sufficiently and use a guidebook for the "how the hell was I supposed to know THAT?!" puzzles, it's not that much of problem.

  • Aleksandar

    Wow all credit to the Nerd funniest video in a while!!

  • LoZisSo69

    "hahaha FUCK YOU."
    "But here, they decided, 'Fuck you,' you die, you go back all the way to square one, assholes."

  • X4Dennis24

    this was funny, but i thought LoZ2 was the best of the classic Zelda's

    Tim The Tool Man Taylor's neighbor lawl XD

    Curling into a corner and hiding behind something and thrashing around really does solve everything XD

  • MYK1217

    The best part was the end when he's wearing the Power Glove (Watch his episode about it, it's hilarious!) and his hand motions actually cause him to beat the game! xD

    only time I've actually "enjoyed" a "review" by him
    sure, it's fun to bash games, but you can only do it that many times, before it gets stale

    about time he made something, at least somewhat serious
