Winter Games - Angry Video Game Nerd - Episode 84

Angry Video Game Nerd (Episode 84)Winter GamesWinter Games was developed by Epyx in an attempt to bring the fun of the Winter Olympics into the hands of gamers. It was first released for the Commodore 64 in 1985 and was soon ported to other systems such as the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Commodore Amiga and PC to name a few. It proved to mildly satisfy gamers and lived up to the successes of Epyx's previous sports titles, Summer Games, World Games and California Games.However when the game was released later on the NES, gamers expected an improvement due to the advanced capabilities of the console, but were instead given a broken-down embarrassment to the NES library. You wouldn't think that a game re-released for a next generation console would get its ass kicked by an older system, but everything about the NES version was a total failure including something as simple as a menu screen!It's going to be a cold, rotten Christmas for The Nerd this year as he endures bleak, depressing graphics, glitch resembling animation and atrocious music. To top it all off he will attempt to make sense of some of the worst controls in video game history while the game lets him know how much he sucks the whole way through.It's one of those games that deserves a good beating, in reality of course! Find out what The Nerd has in store for this terrible game in this episode of Angry Video Game Nerd!Visit our website!

If Winter Games had been created today by EA or Activision, the first 4 olympic games would be in the actual disc and the rest would have been sold in $15 DLC.
