His mission: pass judgment on the worst video games of all time, to preserve the rest off us from the brain damage they might cause. He risks his own mental health on abominations like Super Nintendo’s Silver Surfer and substandard versions of Zelda. His heroic efforts are hardly a waste — captured in video clips, they have attracted a horde of devoted fans on the Internet. He is the enemy of the weak and wasteful, of garbage gameplay and lousy graphics, the one and only Angry Video Game Nerd! No game escapes his joystick of justice, none but one — which he staunchly refuses to consider, despite the protestations of his online fan base. Legend has it that a particular 8-bit abomination adapted from a Spielberg film caused the collapse of the Atari company, and that two million unsold copies of the game were lanfdfilled in the New Mexico desert. When the Nerd gets word of a belligerent new company planning an appropriately awful sequel game, he decides to put the rumours to rest and prove for once and for all that nothing is in fact buried under the Chihuahua sands, cementing the mythic monstrosity’s relegation to oblivion. To do so, the Nerd must emerge from his basement and hit the road with a pair of unlikely companions. So begins a mad quest that will involve the American military, the secrets of the universe and, of course, crappy video games!
