The AVGN (or the Angry Video Game Nerd as his full name) is a reviewer that reviews video games. He had two pilots in 2004 but officialy started in 2006.
In 2004, James Rolfe finished college. He returned to his parents' home and came up with an idea. He would review Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. He started recording and talking about the game. He used profanity quite a lot. James Rolfe quickly used the same method on another game which he thought was the worst game of all time: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This is the first instance of James Rolfe using a staple in the history of the Nerd, drinking Rolling Rock. He decided to show it to his friends.
