This episode does not use the AVGN theme music, opting instead for a Terminator-styled intro sequence.The Nerd finds the NES game to be one of the worst games he has ever played, due to awful controls and music, and the fact that it is possible to fall through platforms and die. Even an attempt to cheat and gain extra lives (by attaching a wrench to the controller) fails to help, due to the game inexplicably limiting the player to six lives.The SNES version fares better, with the Nerd complimenting the decent arcade-style gameplay, but ultimately finding it a mediocre game overall due to the excessive difficulty and overly long levels.Finally, the Nerd briefly revisits the Sega CD game, which he had previously looked at in his Sega CD review, and despite having some minor issues with the controls, he ultimately deems it to be a good game, and a strong contender for the best Terminator-series game overall.

The Terminator is a 1984 science fiction action film directed by James Cameron, and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Biehn and Linda Hamilton. It was filmed in Los Angeles, produced by Hemdale Film Corporation and distributed by Orion Pictures. Schwarzenegger plays the Terminator, a cyborg assassin sent back in time from the year 2029 to 1984 to kill Sarah Connor, played by Hamilton. Biehn plays Kyle Reese, a soldier from the future sent back in time to protect Sarah.
Though not expected to be either a commercial or critical success, The Terminator topped American box office for two weeks and helped launch the film career of Cameron and solidify that of Schwarzenegger. Three sequels have been produced: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), and Terminator Salvation (2009), as well as a television series, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008--2009). In 2008, The Terminator was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the American National Film Registry, being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
