Angry Video Game Nerd Wiki

Ghosts 'n Goblins is a 1986 Capcom video game released for the NES, being a port of an arcade released in 1985. It is one of the few good games reviewed by the Nerd, though it is notable for being one of the most difficult and frustrating NES games due to the fact you can only be hit twice and having to beat the game twice in order to receive the good ending. It was reviewed by the Nerd on October 24, 2012.


  • As mentioned in the episode, Ghosts 'n Goblins is the first NES game ever played by the Nerd on his eight birthday, which is the same day he first owned an NES console.
  • The Nerd's repeated line of "Get the knife" from this episode (in reference to the knife, which is a helpful weapon upgrade to have in comparison to the javelin) was referenced in the James & Mike Mondays episode "Use Your Words."
