I get why they have to do it, but including paid ads in the first minute or two of every video now is pretty annoying. It bothers me more when the overall video is already pretty short, as the latest AVGN video was.

Like I get that there's not much to say about Pac-Man 2, but he could've stretched it out to like 15 minutes or so by talking about some of the lesser-known sequels from back in the arcade days. He's done that for a lot of other properties. I've liked most of his recent videos but this one felt like a total throwaway, to be honest.

It's like "Here's a minute of me trying to sell you a VPN... here's 5 minutes of me talking about a Pac-Man game nobody's ever played... aaaaand we're out." One of the laziest videos he's ever done, I hate to say.

Yeah. The last time he released an episode as short as his latest one must have been around 2006 when he was still Angry Nintendo Nerd. And yet, his episodes at the time had more substance than his Pac-man 2 episode.

A rather disappointing episode.

Yeah, there so much he coulda done with this one but at the same time, not too much. Idk. It seemed like another game that only has 3-4 levels, they're just crazy long and crazy hard. I guess he shoulda gone more into the history of it, or also review Pac-Attack as a palette cleanser.

So pretty much every video now is defending criticisms from the cinemassacre truth subreddit. AVGN is a tired idea it's been going on for two decades now and copied to the ground, he's never really evolved. I still enjoy watching it but it's obviously a shadow of its former self. It's not entirely his fault, there's not much else he can do with the character, more elaborate videos do help but it's not even enough at this point.

When is he going to start reviewing Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 games? They're already retro.

To be honest as long as game companies keep making ****** games, it'll never get old. There's a lil bit of AVGN in all of us every time we buy a game we think is gonna be great and ends up sucking.

If anything I'd like to see him address that it's 2021 and they're still making ****** games. "wtf, Atari and Nintendo are one thing due to the limitations of the 80s tech at the time, BUT HOW THE **** ARE THEY STILL MAKING ****** GAMES FOR THE PS5 AND XBOX SERIES X. WHAT KINDA NAME IS SERIES X TO BEGIN WITH??? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING????"

Question

The Cinemassacre Truth subreddit is mostly lunatic conspiracy theorists who are obsessed with James Rolfe's personal life.

I understand the criticisms about the quality of AVGN episodes declining ever since Screenwave partnered with James, but those people take it too far and just end up being hard to take seriously.

Two new episodes recently. Rocketeer and Greendog.

Rocketeer was a good episode. Greendog was just OK at best. They clearly overhyped the way they destroyed the game at the end of the episode.
