** While it doesn't last, the Nerd's brief attempt to resist the game's control on Day 5, complete with BadassBoast:
-->'''The Nerd:''' (struggling with the camera) If you can keep me from getting out, I can keep you from showing yourself, ''[[CatchPhrase you fucking game]]''!

* The Polybius "review"for the 2017 Halloween special. There are several VisualEffectsOfAwesome through the video, including the fact that James Rolfe apparently ''made an entire Polybius cabinet, complete with an actually working screen,'' just to sell it even further.

** Also, the fact that several comments on the video say that they were more scared by this video than recent horror movies. A foul-mouthed internet reviewer locked in a warehouse with an arcade cabinet managed to make something that scared people on the level of a big-budget Hollywood production.

** And after that, when [[spoiler:ROB supposedly kills the Nerd and transforms every game into either ''Gyromite'' or ''Stack-Up'']], the Nerd starts recalling many of the shitty games he reviewed, thinking "No more (name of game)?". His self-answer to that? [[spoiler:[[LetsGetDangerous "I WON'T FUCKING]] [[TheGlovesComeOff HAVE IT!!"]]]] Cue Awesome.

* After discovering that the modern ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' video games are so much cooler than the ones he played as a kid, the Nerd lets out a "FUCK!" set to Godzilla's roar, trashes his cartridge racks in rage, and proceeds to realize that, since he's used all the swears in existence, he needs to ''make up a new one''. Which is bleeped out, because "it's that bad". [[spoiler:[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGD43KPBFZc He said "scunt".]]]]
* James/The Nerd has the Nintendo World Championships Gold Cartridge, possibly ''the'' rarest video game cartridge in existence. [[spoiler:WHICH HE JUST FUCKING ANNIHILATES WITH A HAMMER! Only in-universe, thank the lord.]]

* Him [[spoiler: successfully beating ''Ghosts and Goblins'', one of the hardest NES games ever made]], after trying to for almost twenty-five years. In fact, it was the very first NES game he ever ''attempted'', on his 8th birthday.

* The end of the second part of the AVGN Wish List episode, which has the Nerd playing "Spider-Man: Maximum Carnage" on the SNES. He finds the game to be, while not necessarily the best he's ever played, a rather decent game and perhaps the best Spider-Man game he's ever played. When he looks at who made the game, he's in for a shock: on the box of the game, he sees [[spoiler:the '''LJN logo'''. The fact that LJN of all companies could make a decent game like that is actually a pretty awesome moment in and of itself.]]
** The effect is lessened once you learn that [[spoiler:LJN]] never made a game in-house. Instead, they always outsourced their games to different developers. Instead of finally making a decent game, they finally got a decent developer, which is awesome in its own way.

** At the end, he returns to 2016, only to find [[spoiler:Bugs Bunny has taken the Nerd's job following his TenMinuteRetirement]]. What else should ensue but another epic beatdown.
* The Nerd testing if it's possible to break a window with nothing but a newspaper as shown in ''VideoGame/{{Paperboy}}'' [[spoiler:[[RealityIsUnrealistic and succeeding]]]]!

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYDuy7wM8Gk&t=8m30s While reviewing]] the Power Glove for the {{NES}}, he subjects himself to playing ''VideoGame/TopGun''... ''again''. As many times as he tried [[NintendoHard and failed to do so in the past]] -- and this is probably the first ''accidental'' CMOA -- he finally lands the plane on the carrier at the end of the level using the Power Glove.

* In the Pong Consoles episode, James comments on how a gamer during the ''Pong'' Era would react to modern consoles. They'd think that maybe the graphics would be a little better, or maybe even ''color''! Cut to scenes from ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', with a rock-mix of the AVGN theme playing in the background, which then cuts to James in a awesomely-shocked-and-pleased look on his face.

* His gaming prowess. He doesn't just cover some of the worst games ever, he still beats them! Hours upon hours of playing sadistically difficult games, usually with broken controls to boot, and he somehow has the patience, skill, and nerve to get to the bitter end. An especially astonishing one goes to beating NES side scroller ''Street Fighter 2010'', in which the final stage is a BossRush of five that requires players to pass it under a ridiculously short time limit, forces you to go out of your way to grab all the weapon power ups in the stage within that limit (or it is pretty impossible to beat the final boss), and do it all in one life bar. While the game gives you endless continues, it also makes you start from the beginning of the stage every time you die. You could feel the hours sap from his life during a LONG montage of his attempts, but he did it. Also see his videos on ''Super Pitfall'' and ''TheWizardOfOz''.

** He then turns it on ''DuckHunt''. And shoots down a duck by shouting, "Fuck!" at it. This is a rare case of PrecisionFStrike in the literal meaning.
