Had enough with games that you hate?A Video Review Show that is a self-proclaimed ripoff of The Angry Video Game Nerd. Derek Alexander, aka The Happy Video Game Nerd, copies the style of AVGN right down to the opening theme song (at least for his early episodes)...and then he inverts it. He really is the happiest gamer you never heard, as his specialty is to review old school games that he actually likes; to date, he has reviewed the following classic games as well as few recent titles.

Surprisingly, James Rolfe — The Angry Video Game Nerd himself! — subscribes to Derek's YouTube account.Episodes of HVGN can be found on Retroware TV (the show's official home) as well as HVGN's YouTube account.Compare Wiiviewer and Classic Game Room.
