Angry Video Game Nerd: Ninja Gaiden

#1 Edited by JJOR64 (19095 posts) -

Wait second, Ninja Gaiden is a good game right?  Well, yes, but it's one hard son of a bitch.  With The Nerd trying to beat this game with the help of a ninja, can he finally beat it after all these years?
This is one of my favorite episodes in recent memory that he has done.  So far he has had a good start in 2010 and I hope he keeps up with it.  Sit back and enjoy this ninja-fied episode of AVGN.

I have always been stupefied by the fact that they never incorporated any of the awesome music into the next-gen Ninja Gaiden games.

Thinking back, I am pretty sure I stopped playing that game at EXACTLY the same point, too funny.
Though I somehow think I beat this game though, maybe I emulated through.

I had totally forgotten that the soundtrack of the original Ninja Gaiden had some fantastic songs on it, the best of which was the one AVGN used in his training montage bit -- Act 4-2 忍者龍剣伝 "Ryu's Determination"
Thanks for posting the vid :D

Yeah, ALL the Ninja Gaiden games are pretty hard. Too bad the AVGN didn't do a crossover with the ninja from Ask a Ninja. :P I also would have liked him to mention the SNES trilogy cart, but I guess he didn't have that game. I think I remember hearing that the cart was a bit of a collector's item.

I beat Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2.  I figured y'all should know that.

That game takes an amount of balls that I don't have to finish.
