Not to be confused with that other guy.

Born James Duncan Rolfe. A film buff from New Jersey (now supposedly living in Philly) with directing aspirations, Rolfe remained mostly under the radar until 2006, when he posted a couple of joke reviews he made for his friends a couple years earlier on YouTube, under the name "The Angry Nintendo Nerd". A few years of booming popularity later, he eventually evolved into The Angry Video Game Nerd.

Aside from making Nerd videos, he also has a large number of films (he's been making them since 1989) registered on his website, In addition to the Nerd character, he has two other shows: Board James and You Know What's Bullshit; while the former is ongoing, the latter seems to have fizzled out. He has recently established a new improv series with a few friends of his called OverAnalyzers.

He also often posts videos to the site with him acting as himself, either performing interviews, documentaries, or movie reviews, most notable of which is Cinemassacre's Monster Madness, an event that he has taken part in every October since 2007 where he reviews one horror film every day of the month, whether it be an old classic or an obscure treasure, usually in keeping with some sort of theme (So Bad It's Good films one year, the entire Godzilla series another).

He is affiliates with both Screw Attack and That Guy With The Glasses (despite, or perhaps due to, the Nerd's eternal conflict with The Nostalgia Critic).
