New Angry Video Game Nerd video - Paperboy (NES)

I'm a fan of the AVGN, but I didn't find this one to be one of his stronger efforts. It felt like a stretch for him to tackle this game; I'm not sure why he didn't choose a truly bad game. It's weird. I know he did that Mega Man episode recently, too. Wondering if that's an attempt to get more views with big names? Not sure. But there is much riper fruit out there if he wants to really rip something to shreds. 

 

Still enjoyed it. James and Mike do a great job.

They've played it before when he's not doing his character, and James doesn't dislike the game.   That doesn't mean it didn't make for a funny episode.  I was dying laughing at him trying to rope the mailbox!

Not sure how legit it is as it's not even mentioned on the Paperboy Wiki but apparently Mark Caesar and Robin Hallingstad sued Atari in 1986 claiming they submitted the idea for paperboy in 1983, asking for 1 million dollars and subsidiaries. Made it to every console except Atari 7800 ;-)

This is another example of an Atari arcade game that should have been ported to the Atari 7800 first, yet was never ported at all. RoadBlasters, Marble Madness, STUN Runner all come to mind as well.
