Angry Video Game Nerd Wiki
Full Playthroughs

Full Playthroughs is a Cinemassacre webseries created by and starring Mike Matei. The show began in December 2016, around the time Mike & Bootsy ended. In contrast to other let's play shows on the Cinemassacre channel, the videos are largely unedited, with every episode featuring Mike playing through a retro game from beginning to end. The episodes are similar in many ways to his live streams, only not recorded in front of an audience.

The show started off with a new episode every Tuesday, alongside episodes of James & Mike Mondays every Monday and episodes of Mike & Ryan every Saturday. Eventually, the schedule slowed down to feature new playthroughs on occasional Tuesdays instead of every Tuesday.
