[Music] every gamer down in game ville liked Christmas a lot but the nerd who lived just north of game Ville did not he stood there on Christmas Eve staring down from his cave with a sour nerdy frown at the warm lighted windows below in their town ah Christmas that time of year when everyone gets an awesome new video game but the ones I always get are so unspeakably lame wall street kid is a game about cash and stocks might as well fill my Christmas socks with trash and severed cat toki going apeshit I admit you can’t move while spitting and die in one hit killing time on three do it doesn’t give you enough ammo your parents paying 50 bucks for a game where you shoot the out of ducks really sucks I’d rather eat the sea skunk yeast and play inferior arcade ports like altered beast altered beast is a nut kicking feast I can’t stand in the least then there’s games that are so ridiculously hard giving a reasonable challenge is something the programmers disregard Last Action Hero I can’t even pass the first stage getting whacked to death by Ernest P Worrell sends me into a fit of rage Double Dragon on Atari what is this I can’t even get up and score one-hit scat stands for special cybernetic attack team but the droppings of carnivorous mammals is what the word scat really means it’s as close as you can get to a Nintendo game called balls is an aptly named travesty on SNES that makes no sense and is a cockamamie but brain mess I’d be so letdown playing on Christmas morning but a game with a clown should have come as a warning all those young gamers get to play something he or she enjoys while I get the ones with terrible graphics and awful noise noise noise if they play two seconds of ultraman they throw that junk I reckon back to Japan they puke at the nauseating effect of marsupilami the camera jumps with the character and that’s a bunch of sauce and salami they take an axe to Mad Max they take offense to taboo The Sixth Sense they’d shriek squeaks and squeals racing around with Bigfoot’s uncontrollable wheels they tried kicking and pit fighter like there’s lead weights tied to their heels they try skating and skater died without falling flat on their face while staring at Rodney Dangerfield with a mohawk such a disgrace the kids today have their first-person shooters they talk on their headsets and go online with their advanced computers they play their music and rhythm games go jumping around and swinging when those morning christmas bells are ringing they’re rocking out in their living rooms jamming and singing they sing and they’d sing and they sing sing sing sing and the more the nerd fault of this Christmas sing the more the nerd fought and must start this whole thing I put up with us long enough now I have to find a way to start Christmas from coming but how then he got an idea an awful idea the nerd got a wonderful awful idea I know just what to do the nerd laughed in his fruit I’ll make a quick Santy Claus hat in a close and he chuckled and clucked what a great nerdy trick with this coat in this hat I’ll look just like Saint Nick while all the gamers are asleep tonight I’ll give him some games they can play all right [Music] mr. nerd [Music] or a jar you’re shameless as a mop you got mischief and your smirk I would when you’re playing Atari berserk [Music] the Nerds slay started down toward the town where the gamers Laius news without care when he came to the first little house on the square this is stop number one the old nerdy Claus hissed he climbed to the roof bags of shitty games in his fist then he ducked down the chimney a bit absurd but if Mario could do it then so could the nerd then he stuck his head out of his fireplace with a game of stockings off and in a row these stockings he grinned are the first things to go then he slithered and slunk so silent and Swift around the whole room he took every gift he took all the games that would make the kids happy and replace them with ones that were terribly crappy the free Stooges north and south – space had Captain America The Punisher Bill and Ted T&C surf design that one’s pretty good like a rat’s ass they’d like it they would it’s by LJN that’s all you need to know it’s the worst surfing experience you’ll ever undergo the controls blow and there’s a cat in a tuxedo a gorilla some masked men it’s really a freak show you move around staying adrift on a motionless tide one wrong move and it’s the end of your ride even if you’re doing fine you’ll suddenly get hit by a bird it’s as much fun as ringing the stank juice out of a turd skating may be the best part but it’s still just as delightfully tart as a broccoli bean burrito eating skunk that’s ready to fart you’re a vile one mr. nerd you got you’re watching your wicked for your crap is full of gold mr. Duggar is charming and fun [Music] we’ll see how they like circus caper it’s as fun as inhaling Chewbacca’s anal vapor you’re running around knocking down carnival performers and the crowd are all clowns why are the clowns in the audience and not in the show why they spell the name of the game what shame we’ll never know when you punch people items fly straight up in the air that’s unfair makes me rip out my hair the hell with Sir Isaac Newton they don’t care what goes up must come down not in this game they were just around what turkeys worked on this murky mess of monkey jerky some quirky jackass from Albuquerque punching kicking lunging and sticking short-range attack bending way back like a broom somewhat been shoved up your butt what’s that bonus stages to keep score what for since Atari score doesn’t matter anymore when you die you go back only one chance cut me some slack in this stage I’m flying around I’d like to stay up but they forced me to go down there’s no buffer you can’t touch the bottom of the screen kill by invisible airspace the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen tiny elephants a kangaroo in a ring a guy with a sword all crazy things throwing soccer balls at a sack what were they smoking crack jumping in and out of magic hats fighting over meat with white cats save the girl why am I not thrilled she was a target for knife throwing too bad she didn’t get killed how about puss and boots that one really sucked dodging eagle poop in a car man it’s nothing’s more high-class than the Statue of Liberty going right up your ass Puss in Boots appeared on the title screen to fist to the North Star what’s that mean a fist coming out of a star gee that’s bizarre one tiny jump takes you to the top of the screen damn you almost touched the score what are you on a trampoline trying to break blocks just can’t hit the spot with those white socks just kick till you rot walking so slow why can’t you run so tedious that’s no fun the boss exploded after I died a random guy vanished what did he just hide going upstairs where am I now there’s no continuity I don’t see how one minute I’m here one minute err I just reappear anyplace anywhere guys jumping through the roof this game is so glitch now they’re coming through the floor what’s going on such a bitch you can’t go in most of the doors like this big one how can you ignore finding the right door is such a chore come on where do I go what a bore finally when you do find the right door how do you go in want to know the way not up not down by pressing right be an a how much were they drinking why is it so stinking I’m staring unblinking what were they thinking [Music] [Music] the three words that describe you are it was in the morning lights when all the gamers began to rise and in the Nerds delight eagerly listened in on their surprise I know just what they’ll do those swine’s the play those horrible games the Christmas will be ruined like all mine the nerd put his hand to his ear and he did hear their sounds going fast at first they were aghast why then they started to laugh every gamer down in Gainesville the tall and small was playing with the worst games of all he hadn’t ruined Christmas it came just the same the nerd with his nerd feet ice-cold in the snow stood puzzling how could it be so it came with bad dudes it came with Swamp Thing it came with Goonies Waldo and ring King he puzzled and puzzled till his puzzler was sore then the nerd for to something he hadn’t before maybe bad games he rode into game ville to the girls and boys he brought back their presents all the games and their toys both the good and the bad the outdated and the rad the notorious and nifty and the PlayStation frees the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo weed he brought everything back all the games for the face and he himself the nerd Beauty welcomed Christmas bring your cheer cheer to all the gamers far and near welcomed Christmas while we play some pretty shitty games today you
