    In this AVGN the Nerd covers Chex Quest, a pack-in game for Chex Cereal from 1996. This is Angry Video Game Nerd episode 171. Chex Quest is a non-violent first-person shooter video game created in 1996 by Digital Café as a Chex cereal promotion aimed at children aged 6-9 and up. It is a total conversion of the more violent video game Doom (specifically The Ultimate Doom version of the game).

    I got a game for you AVGN. The Hunt For Red October For NES! That game is fucking infuriating! Starts off with 8 Levels of underwater pain. Then turns into a completely different game at the end that looks like A 007 Castlevania Cross Over from Hell. Seriously let's get a petition here. The Hunt For Red October NES needs to Sink! And The Nerd is the only one insane enough to do it!

    Before watching the video: Oh he BETTER not be about to dis Chex Quest. Chex Quest is frickin' amazing!

    Partway through the video: Heh, cool. I wonder if he's gonna do something like he did with Super Mario 3?

    After the video:, man, advertising that plagiarist's modpack?

    Here's an idea for an AVGN episode, seeing as I think it hits all the right marks:
    1. Awesome music and good graphics but crappy gameplay and controls
    2. Movie-based tie-in (NOT made my LJN, rather, Ocean Software)
    3. Multiload game (even though each section is self-contained)
    The game I'm thinking of is "Highlander" for the Commodore 64, based on the movie of the same name. The only positive I can give about it is that it has an awesome 8-bit rendition of the Queen classic "A Kind of Magic".

    Hey Nerd, I have a genuine question for you. I don't know if you made a statement about it before in a previous video, but why haven't you made a AVGN video about any Pokemon games? They are certainly old enough, and would make great content. Your fan always - Josh.
