Year One refers to the celebration TGWTG.com had in April 2009 for their birthday. Instead of it being one day, several videos were made commemorating the occasion with a larger event to follow.
The video starts off with Nostalgia Critic walking along the roof of a Chicago skyscraper singing about how much of a beautiful day it is (to the tune of "Oh What A Beautiful Morning" from the musical "Oklahoma!"). His bliss is shattered when he sees The Angry Video Game Nerd walking along the same skyscraper, playing a Nintendo DS. The two immediately pick up where they left off as they chase each other through the city streets, into a building, up an elevator and into a room where the fight begins. However it isn't long before The Nostalgia Chick joins in, then Kyle Justin, and soon other people from both the Critic and Nerd's sites appear out of the woodwork! However when Benzaie arrives things really get heated- he betrays the Critic and sides with the Nerd, saying that he is "a gamer first and a friend second". As other team members join in, the rift grows stronger to the point where everyone is split into two teams-the "Reviewers", led by the Critic, and the "Gamers", led by the Nerd. It is at this time that the Nerd makes a fantastic (yet vulgar) motivational speech, but the Critic isn't good at speeches and can only come up with vague examples from films. Then the epic battle begins with commentary from the Transmission Awesome Boyz (and The Cat) to accompany the epicness. Things reach a boiling point though when Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 4.0 Beta enters the fray and battles Donkey Kong Jesus Riding A Puff Of Smoke which sets off an atomic bomb explosion. The Nerd and the Critic eventually realize that there was no point in fighting in the first place thanks to Ask That Guy and agree to team up for a crossover review. More videos followed!
