* [[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.

* 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 realise 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".]]]]
