Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) episode 183: Ecco the Dolphin. Ecco is an action-adventure game originally developed by Ed Annunziata and Novotrade International for the Sega Genesis and published by Sega in 1992. The original game followed the exploits of a young dolphin named Ecco as he searched the seas, and eventually time itself, for his missing pod. The game is known for being super unique with a great art style, but it's also known for being hard, frustrating, and unfair.

    • @Ranuyasha I'm just saying it was too over the top for me. He just needs to grab his bottle like old times. No need for a cheesy scene with him in a pool of beer.

  • It's too bad he didn't get later in the game, to City of Forever. I remember spending way too long getting through all the difficult jumps, only to later find out you could just sonar the statue that opens the passage through the wall right near the start. Would have loved to see James' reaction after going through all that.

  • Sega had a game series that competed against the Legend of Zelda series. It was called "Wonderboy in Monsterworld" series and it surprises me AVGN never talks about it nor about the Shinobi series. Then again, Wonderboy in Monsterworld series wasn't that popular to begin with.
