* WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd has a mild HeroicBSOD after playing the infamous ''[[VideoGame/PennAndTellersSmokeAndMirrors Desert Bus]]'', feeling as though his rantings about shitty games had fallen on deaf ears and declaring his retirement. When perusing his library, however, he decides to play one more game: a fan-hacked version of the first game he reviewed, ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest Redaction''. To the Nerd's surprise and amazement, the fan-hack fixed most of the problems with the original: the day-night transitions were made faster and less obtrusive, the end-boss looked like Dracula and not a generic grim reaper, and the townspeople actually provided helpful tips instead of some random quips, and the hidden book that provided the hint to bypass a dead end with the red crystal was implemented. The Nerd was so taken aback at the fact that his rantings actually paid off that he declared the show must go on.

and declaring leaving them at the dump, then discarding his retirement. [[IconicOutfit Nerd shirt]] in a field. Then he somehow travels through time and meets some of his past selves while they are recording past episodes. When perusing he travels all the way back to the second episode (the first time he ever appeared on camera), and that Nerd tells him how great it would be to have a web series with a huge following, the present-day Nerd realizes how good he has it, which causes him to travel back into the present... where he finds that [[spoiler:Bugs Bunny]] has put on the shirt he discarded and taken over the show.
