He has two characters: Angry Vigeo Game Nerd (AVGN) and himself. AVGN is famous for reviewing shit games for various retro systems (Mostly NES and SNES) while getting drunk and swearing like a sailor. He rarely does more recent games. "The Nerd" is just a vidya persona though and is entirely satire (for the most part). James Rolfe himself is a lot more reasonable, reviews all sorts of stuff (mostly movies) and is a pretty cool guy. He also does board game reviews, called Board James.

|Something different than other YT reviewers. ASSEMblerEX doesn't focus so much on games, but rather on the hardware side of the industry. On his channel you can find reviews of rare or prototype hardware and devkits. He also collects game awards memorabilia. It's definitely worth watching if you are interested in that kind of stuff.

Great review in terms of getting a gist of a game, fun to watch even if you aren't planning on buying a game. Humor is there too. He reviews ANYTHING and praises TRUXTON. From Atari 2600 to PC to iPad. True gamer who never lets companies buy his reviews and one of the best on Youtube.

As of January of 2018, he has moved out of YouTube for like the third or fourth time (for real this time) and is now hosting his reviews on Amazon Prime.

|Follow Billy and Jay on their quest to obtain retro games in this American Pickers style Youtube series. Each person on the show is quite the character, so there's never a dull moment. They actually do find some rare stuff, and they often meet up with other members of the gaming community.

|Run by <s>both</s> a SEGA fanboy <s>and a Nintendo fanboy</s>, these video game reviews are slightly different. Instead of having a in depth analysis of one game, they will chose multiple games with-in the "theme" of the episode (Left in the arcade, Frustrating games, underrated games etc.), and usually end their videos with a skit.

As of [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1EYigdy87Y Episode 246], Dave (the Nintendo fanboy) has since moved on from the show to spend more time with his family, leaving Joe (the SEGA fanboy) solo.

|This guy knows a lot about retro video games, and owns more consoles than you probably knew existed. He's big on the days of arcades and also is a huge fan of Star Wars. Travels a lot for work so he gets to meet and interview a lot of other people with video game focused Youtube channels (HappyConsoleGamer, AlphaOmegaSin, ChargeBackForward).

|Very nice and happy guy who spends most of his episodes talking about games he loves and why he loves them. Some episodes feature his friend Robman. A great show if you like niche Japanese stuff. Also has a movie, which is pretty cool.

|Somewhere between a casual and professional reviewer, Clint is a PC-oriented reviewer who has a taste for the unknown and obscure. He also has a large amount of ''The Sims'' related content.

|This guy owns a lot of video games and has a huge collection of Sonic the Hedgehog stuff. He often does gaming pick-up videos, and was probably one of the first people on Youtube to do so. He's very interested in quirky and obscure games and also happens to be a big fan of horror moves. Very chill dude.

|Even though you are (probably) not homosexual, there's a high possibility you might fall in love with this guy. He does extremely good lets plays from everything strategy related: Civilization, Dwarf fortress, King's Crusades, Europa Universalis, etc etc etc. Extremely entertaining and fun to hear, you might learn a lot from this guy. He also happens to be a master at anything turn-based related and he has quite a nice job on programming codes, but he's not boring at all.

|On the surface, "The Attic Gamer" is your average weeb AVGN clone with clickbaity thumbnails, but the production values and sub count rivals (if it doesn't surpass) the Nerd's. Great content for both casuals and more seasoned vidya enthusiasts. Even if some of the writing that ranges from hilariously unexpected to utterly predictable, it is truly a breath of fresh air, considering France is prone to birth some of the normiest, cringiest
