the Irate Plagiarist

Anyone who's become a fan of internet-video based game reviewer, "the Angry Video Game Nerd," like I have, should take a look at the video below. It's been compiled to expose a blatant plagiarist calling himself the "Irate Gamer" who's been ripping the Nerd off for quite awhile now - posting horrendously-done remakes of the Nerd's videos on Youtube, bothering to rearrange his words only slightly.

The Angry Video Game Nerd has become an instant cult hit amongst retro-game fans like myself, and it's enraging to see some idiot rip his shit off so blatantly. Even more maddening is that this bastard has either disabled the comment boxes from his YouTube videos, or moderates them heavily, deleting or disabling anything in reference to the Nerd, or anything negative about his rip-offs. The prick even went so far as to have the video below removed from YouTube, citing "copyright infringement," ironically.

To see the real deal, check out the Angry Video Game Nerd at his own site here. Or catch him at another great game-review site here.
