When you think of the NES, you think of a lot of bad games thanks to The Nerd, but I wanted to take a little time to look at some of the really good ones today that people don't talk about and are worth playing! Video by James and Mike.

One thing that every gamer, young and old, can probably agree on is that water levels in video games are usually pretty bad. Now of course there are games that nail this concept, especially ones that take place entirely underwater, but that’s not what this video is about! Today I'm looking at a handful of the most memorable water levels in gaming! These aren't necessarily my favorites or the ones I dislike the most, but ones that stuck with me for better or worse.

NOTE: In Sonic 1, we mistook the Shield for the Bubble Shield from Sonic 3 - we thought they did the same thing while making the video.

Why'd it have to be Temple of Doom on NES?!

From AVGN ep 84, the Indiana Jones trilogy.

In Angry Video Game Nerd episode 209, The Nerd dons his leather hat and whip again to pick up where he left off in 2008, playing more bad games based on the Indiana Jones films series! This time though he's got something brand new for you - a game based on the newly released Kingdom of the Crystal Skull for the... LeapFrog Didj?! The Nerd also digs deep into Young Indiana Jones games on Sega Genesis and NES, some of Indy's PC and DVD adventures, and his first venture into 3D in the Nintendo 64's the Infernal Machine. The game footage was intentionally degraded to try and make it look old.
