So I've been a huge HUGE fan of Nerds videos since he began, then when the Irate Gamer came about my general reaction was hatred. As I don't like filthy copyers.
...but then he has this legion of fans, and appears to be successfully selling dvds, t-shirts, etc.... despite BLATENTLY just copying Angry Video Game Nerd... Some people seem to look past the fact Nerd is the guy who came up with this, its so simple to see irate copied nerds idea of reviewing old games, the way its filmed, the character, the language, the style of comedy, the special fx, everything.
I'm curious to see the percentage of people that actually like Irate Gamer.
I checked out a few videos and you're right it is a complete copy of the AVGN, theres no denying that he does the same crap the Nerd does. But I admit i did find him funny at some spots so i dont know. I still prefer the Nerd obviously and probably wont bother keeping up with this "Irate Gamer" but it was nice for a little change. Nerd has kinda been boring me lately.
I'm sure this guy would do the same if I watched enough of it.
I like them both just because you like Pepsi doesn't mean you can't like Coke hating the Irate Gamer does not make you any more of AVGN fan. the guy does a decent job TBH I think he could do a good job at more serious reviews. Still I prefer the Nerd but I still get a kick out of the Irate Gamer.
If You Live In The USA And Can Help Me Out With Getting Mattel WWE Retro Figures It Would Be Awesome!!!!
I love this line, but collecting them here in the UK is impossible, I would have an easier time finding the magic lamp and getting a Genie to hook me up with them

He's OK, but it doesn't really mean anything. The Nerd is slow with his videos (and with good reason), so in between videos I'd hit up some IRATE Gamer videos, which are equally as amusing. He can be funny, and if you disregard his similarities to the Nerd you'll have fun.
