Anyone fans of these guys? I seen the Nerd mentioned here already but what about the other two? I don't like the Irate Gamer that much but his current vids on the history of videogames are kinda interesting.

I like the earliest AVGN, before it all became "forced".
The Ghostbusters one is still the hardest I've laughed at any internet-only video.
I liked his recent Ghostbusters review as himself. At the beginning he's gonna talk about the new GB game, then the Nerd sits next to him and acts all ready to rip this game a new one. "No, it's not like that. This game is NEW and it's actually pretty cool!" Nerd- "A GOOD Ghostbusters game? Guess you don't need me." and he leaves. LOL First time James acted alongside his own character.
Nostalgia Critic and Spoony are classic!

Nostalgia Critic, Nostalgia Chick, Linkara and MarzGurl are my favorites and I used to watch Angry VideoGame Nerd a lot.

When i first discovered The Angry Videogame Nerd, he was kinda funny, but his over the top swearing, and humor can be a mixed bag at times. Yet, when i discovered The Nostalgia Critic, i was hooked. Clearly, he had some talent, and while he did his fair share of cussing, he always make me laugh. However, when he would challenge The Nerd to a fight, it was such a treat to watch them duke it out. Over time, i discovered the other reviewers at The Critic's sight like Nostalgia Chick, (who's just as funny, by the way.) Marzgurl, and Linkara. (Who's the 'Nostalgia Critic' of comics.) While The Nerd does have his moments, The Critic wins for me.

I like Nostalgia Critic, Linkara, and Cinema Snob the most myself. I used to like Nostalgia Chick but she kind of annoys me now
I like AVGN and Nostalgia Critic. I actually met the Critic a few months back, he's local to area that I'm in.
My wife and I discovered Nostalgia Chick recently and binged on her video collection, but I haven't checked out the rest on that site yet. I find her quite hilarious! She started off with just jokes, but now she does that on top of a lot of informational stuff, with a slight spin on feminism which I find interesting.

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
You won't find much love for Irate Gamer because he's such an obvious clone of AVGN, from his mannerisms, reviewing games AVGN recently did and even his attempts at marketing.
AVGN has a theatrical movie in the works, a "when it's done" release schedule is set. He's finally getting around to ET for Atari 2600, and his attempt to visit the infamous desert landfill get shim in trouble with Area 51. And depsite working on the film he's managed a few more AVGN episodes and he's had to handle his marriage and wife's recent pregnancy. He's generally remained humble about his success though, although he did have the guts to call Annoying Orange and daneboe "garbage"(and well... how can you do the exact same joke over and over? I'm sorry but AO really lost its charm long ago).
I haven't watched NC in a while, I was having issues with their site's video player and Firefox(of which I'm sorely tempted to ditch and go to Chrome- Firefox is consuming around 600 MB of RAM just to run anymore). I had a lot of videos refuse to load past a certain point. Plus he's into past nostalgia, and I'm just not that obsessed over 80s stuff. I'm barely familiar with about 75% of what he's reviewing, despite the fact I should know that stuff.
Be who you are, not what's cool.
I like them as well as linkara,n-chick,mike mozart and film master adam (as well as collector75,optibotimus,seanlong,emgo and probably others.)
Starchild's #1 fan!!
I REALLY want to see the AVGN movie! I hope it gets released some way, some how in the relatively near future. The trailer for it is hilarious. It looks like he got a pretty good production together, with some real actors, etc, for something he basically did independently.
