    Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) episode 184: Countdown Vampires for the PlayStation 1. Countdown Vampires is a survival horror game developed by K2 LLC and published by Bandai. It's basically Resident Evil, but with vampires instead of zombies. In Countdown Vampires, you play Keith Snyder, a tattooed celebrity bodyguard who has come to the ritzy Desert Moon Hotel on New Year's Eve 1999. When a fire starts in the hotel, the ceiling sprinklers go off. Rather than spray water, they drop an oozing dark liquid all over the glamorous guests. This liquid, whatever it is, turns the other guests into vampires. Now it's your job to find an antidote while fending off preying bloodsuckers, flesh-eating zombies, and bone-crushing monsters. Through the game you'll explore eight different locations--from woodland areas to bars to casino floors--to solve the mystery. It also happens to be one of the worst tank-controlled PS1 games of all time.

      People need to apologize to Code Veronica now, lol

    68. NoobGyver

      there is only one important question: *_What were they thinking?_*

    69. Daniel Böcker

      There´s a survival horror game that is even worse looking than Counting Vampires called The Note. This is the least known game in the entire PS1 library, and yes, the game is really bad.

    70. Tails

      We're nearing 200 episode milestone

      You should play and review All the games created by Rockstar Games including Manhunt and Manhunt 2

    78. Armando Antunez

      Nothing make you feel old than when a retro game reviewer reviews a PS1 game...

    80. Farrael molina

      That you are sorry that you don’t have a epic special? Man this is real epic, lov u men.

    81. Santino Joshua Torre

      "like" solely for quoting Richter Belmont. That never gets old

    91. Kyle Mcgill

      *I hate seeing that he doesn't have millions of view as fast as he used to get. Come on subs! Get those views up!*

    92. ser6Ijvolk

      Apparently some of those characters in the intro actually appear in the alternate story mode you unlock by completing the game in under 8 hours.

    93. Emily Blink

      Review toy story for snes

    94. Gfors85

      Why do I feel like I have to play this game now?
