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.

  • Nerd, maybe in 2023, you could review Duke Nukem Forever. Or in 2026 as DNF took fifteen years to be finished and 2026 would be when the product itself is fifteen years old and that would work as a joke about the game’s fifteen year development cycle.
