“There are so many classic moments that are recreated that will titillate your nerdgasm to the extreme… If you like the idea of the concept and consider yourself a pretty big nerd… you will have a ton of fun watching this show.” – Benjamin Schwartz

“I highly recommend this show for anyone who wants an evening of action-packed laughs and a taste of nostalgia. Whether you claim Nerd Culture or not, go enjoy the obvious hard work this team put into the production. Top notch fights, with top notch laughs. I vote “The Video Games” to be around for awhile. Have Fun!” – Ethan McDowell

“I have now seen this show three times and each time has been beyond excellent!! This show is an hour of just pure theatre enjoyment… I love how different each show has turned out while still maintaining the spirit of my favorite childhood video games. I’ve said it twice, I’ll say it again-go. See. This. Show! I will be, without a doubt!” – Brice Williams

“If you’re looking for a show that speaks to your inner child, look no further. Gamers, geeks, nerds, improv lovers and stage combat fanatics, unite! This is one show you cannot miss.” – Francisco Merino

“If you have not seen this show already you must do so. Such a goofy/enjoyable time. The combat was insane. The actors went full out. The improv was hilarious. Way worth your time and money. Go support! They are onto something.” – Melita Camilo
