** The recent playthrough of VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight has exposed one for Fraser: not finishing a particularly hard segment of a game the best he possibly can, the first time. His Frage, usually playful and "Eh, no biggie" style, turned [[SeriousBusiness dark]] and [[AtomicFBomb loud]] when he failed several times at a particular AR Challenge. If you wish to look it up, go to Part 17 and go to around eight minutes. [[YouHaveBeenWarned And turn your headphones down!]]

''Video Games Awesome!'' is an online show centered around five friends who sit on (and behind) a couch and play video games, offering their opinions, cracking jokes, and sometimes just hanging out. It began in June 2009 as a spin-off of ''WebVideo/AwesomeVideoGames'', as a way for the creative team behind that series to release content and stay visible between updates of AVG. Since then it has more or less overtaken its show of origin in terms of content and popularity. Hosted by Fraser Agar and co-hosted by Kyle Huinink, Deacon Publicover, Becky Blow and Ben Taylor (who temporarily left the show to attend college but has since returned).

Much of the show’s appeal stems from its casual and laid-back atmosphere. The show is unscripted and intentionally does not focus on hardcore gaming, instead emphasizing fun above all. Many installments are designed to provide the perspective of gamers approaching a game for the first time; to that end, most of the games played are current at the time of the episode's release (though they have occasionally dabbled in retro gaming with titles like Earthbound and Doom), and usually some or all of the cast has not played the game before, allowing for genuine first impressions and reactions.

Formerly available through Website/ChannelAwesome affiliate Blistered Thumbs, videos are now archived on [[http://videogamesawesome.com their website]] and Website/{{Youtube}} [[https://www.youtube.com/user/farfromsubtle/ channel]] (note that the latter is updated on a more regular basis), and livestreamed on Website/{{Twitch}} [[http://www.twitch.tv/ffstv here]].

** The ''VideoGame/EpicMickey 2'' episode turned out similarly, culminating in a puzzle Fraser nearly gave up on because he had no idea how he was supposed to activate the move he needed to do. After concluding the game must be broken but insisting on trying one last time, and then finally figuring out the move and powering through the puzzle, he declared that the game "has some serious design flaws" and quit in disgust.

* RageQuit: Fraser is not the most competent of players, but generally [[TheDeterminator refuses to let a game get the better of him]], even if it means asking the chat for help. But after dealing with one frustrating design flaw after another in ''EpicMickey 2'', he finally decided it wasn't worth continuing.

** "I never knew!" This one is from Becky, said an innocent tone of voice usually when she messes something up. This has been a running gag for her since her childhood.
