On August 10th, 2019, the Ragin' Geek with family in tow visits YESTERcades in Somerville, NJ to see the Angry Video Game Nerd. James was there along with the crew from Rental Reviews, Justin and Kieran. The event was from 12pm to 4pm with James signing autographs for the first three hours followed by a Q&A afterwards. Justin and Kieran were selling AVGN and Cinemassacre merchandise at a table next to a long line of fans waiting to meet the man himself, the Nerd. The venue was closed to the public for the duration of the event and capacity was limited to 150 people which was nice and allowed for a very personal experience while meeting James and the rest of the crew. Tickets were $35 a person and as a fan of AVGN and everything Cinemassacre it was worth every penny. For me personally it was a first to pay for an event to meet a celebrity. I can't emphasize what an amazing experience it is to get to meet people whom you enjoy watching may it be on YouTube or some other media platform. I only have great things to say about all the guys, they are extremely sociable and down to earth and it was so much fun talking with them. James is really a gracious celebrity and is so patient signing any amount of collectible merchandise you present to him, he is a total class act and deserves every bit of success he earned. After the signing James, Justin and Kieran answered a slew of questions from fans and were totally open to anything they were asked. Being surrounded by all the fans asking questions it was really clear the AVGN has a tremendously large and loyal fan base. Concluding the event YESTERcades allowed anyone who attended to play video games for the duration of the day. Hopefully it won't be too long the next time the AVGN decides to grace New Jersey with his presence because I look forward to being there.
