Nintendo World Championships (NES) – Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN)

The Holy Grail? Who needs that when you have an NWC Cart?
In 1990 Nintendo sponsored a video game tournament called The Nintendo World Championships the tournament was based on the movie The Wizard and was part of a huge festival called Powerfest which toured twenty-nine cities across the US.
The Nintendo World Championship Cartridge was made up of three NES Games these games were Super Mario Bros., Rad Racer, and Tetris and used a point scoring system to determine the winner.
The tournament finalists each got to keep their own copy of the game which was a Gray cart with a white label however there exists a Gold version which were given away as prizes in The Nintendo Power Magazine only 26 of these games were ever made.
Now the Nerd must tackle what has come to be known as the Holy Grail of NES collecting has he found a real NWC Cart or will it remain forever out of his reach. This is AVGN episode 104.

  2. Vibri on December 26, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Note to self: Never eat while watching AVGN.

    Would a great example of passive aggressiveism!

  4. Matthew Rease on December 26, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    It’s cool that this is in widescreen, but kinda strange too. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Standard Definition (480p) widescreen before…

  5. Neil Dennis on December 26, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Wow, waaaay back when Pat actually looked like a punk.

  6. Geneva Idson on December 26, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Great

  7. Mathew Vazquez on December 26, 2020 at 10:30 pm

  8. Benjamin Clements on December 26, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Eventhough you understand they dont destroy the real cartriges, its somewhat nice, and reasuring, that they show the real ones at end, in unharmed conditions 😆

  11. ProtoMario on December 26, 2020 at 10:33 pm

  12. The Mute Channel 13 on December 26, 2020 at 10:33 pm

  18. AtlasBlizzard on December 26, 2020 at 10:40 pm

  30. Teen Sonic's Channel on December 26, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Alternative ending: The Nerd wins the battle with the nes punk and only takes the gold one and destroys the grey one and the nes punk cries in a corner because he lose the battle

  35. Scott Jefferson on December 26, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    It’s weird seeing Nintendo actually participating in a videogame championship with what Nintendo is doing these recent days…

  36. Brosef Brokowski on December 26, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    He’s got a flip cell phone…post-2010…

  37. Quinn Herron on December 26, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    I can testify as a collector of rare things myself, this is honestly what we do as collectors 11:32

  38. Ruination on December 26, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Do you know about russian retroblogger "Сhieftain of nostalgie" Pavel Vladimirovich Grinev – as known as Kinaman?

  39. rodrich182 on December 26, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Those carts must have double their value just for being in an AVGN episode. Both part of video game history.

  40. Kameron Bowers on December 26, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Poggers.

  41. uthr22 on December 26, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    What did he do

  42. Chris Madaris on December 26, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    I can’t believe he did that

  43. William Smith on December 26, 2020 at 11:16 pm

    I like your videos

  44. james lowman on December 26, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    AVGN is our hero we need

  45. gamemaster22 the game god on December 26, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    Y did u destroy those rare games

  46. mepposhow on December 26, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    Why would you buy a reproduction card if you have the original cartridge?

  47. Zavier Christopherson on December 26, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    If this was real why would you just destroy it like that

  48. Thunderwing Doomslayer on December 26, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    my question is who owns the games the nerd or the nes punk?

  49. Shawn Grant on December 26, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    There’s one on ebay right now for $1,000,000!

  50. Raspberry Juice Entertainment on December 26, 2020 at 11:22 pm
