Friday the 13th (NES) Playthrough With Commentary

Got a special request to do this video after The Karate Kid playthrough went up last week. In this brand new Friday the 13th walkthrough with live commentary, I will show you how to easily conquer Jason’s reign of terror at Crystal Lake. This video is also a sequel to the events that took place in the original Friday the 13th RIR film from 2008.

    Friday the 13th (NES) Playthrough With Commentary! Let’s go retro!

  2. Freddyfan1428 says:

    Respectfully, I disagree on one thing; LJN could have done so much better with some of the many video game licences they procured for the movie games. there were some good efforts but their quality control and testing left much to be desired. Gotta say thank you for letting us know the fine details of the playthrough and how to get through some of the more tricky scenarios on this! p.s. E-C-F’N-W Forever!!!!!

  3. XXShawnRiderXX says:

    LK thanks for doing the game. The thing that you said about the end screen was so true. The first time that I beat this game I stared at that screen and I was breathing hard and sweating (Stupid NES fever.) But have to ask who requested the game 😉 P.S Jaws or nightmare pick your posion

  4. HYPNOGLANCE87 says:

    this was awesome LK hope to see more playthrough commentary soon you rock dude to the max

  5. LORD KAYOSS says:

    That would be you, my friend. Thanks for the support, Bro!

  6. Retromancers says:

    Nice play-through, man. This is actually one of my favorite NES games.

  7. nightofthelivingjohn says:

    nice going LK. loved the playthrough. i totally agree. ljn did get alot of shit back in the day for their movie based games. alot of their games were hit and miss. i hope you do more playthroughs. i hope you put out more “shoot of the week” episodes. those were awesome. keep up the great work dude :-)

  8. XXShawnRiderXX says:

    I always support a channel that has good content and you just keep pumping it out hope to see you grow more and more you deserve it big time man.

    a nightmare on elm street

  10. nope mcgee says:

    What a great and informative video.

  11. kamivideos343 says:

    Could you please do a walkthrough ( with commentary) of A nightmare on elm street? I always get stuck in the high school. There is a jump I can’t make because I eather loose all my continues or get frustrated and quit the game. It would help a lot. Thank you!

  12. GTSkylineGTR says:

    awesome video Kayoss keep them coming.

  13. DLJBFan2009 says:

    Oh, so it has to be one of the female characters that wears the sweater in order to make it work. The explanation helps greatly. I thought, all this time, that it was a typo, since Mark in the sweater did nothing. Thanks!

  14. wrmmachne820311 says:

    awesome walkthrough!!

  15. Duke Nukem says:

    good job man.. you could play jason in next movie..

  18. JOEL FLSA says:

    U know i used to play this renting from BLOCK BUSTER VIDEO but can never find my damn way out of this game and got killed by JASON. WTF and was only 8yrs old. pff

  19. Rain Man says:

    awesome video….brought me joy watching this

  20. Bizija123 says:

    “Giant Oral B”… i just about spilled my milk all over the keyboard.

  21. FurryFoolURMine says:

    Awesome play through. I didn’t realize how much strategy was involved playing this as a kid.

  22. StocktonJustin95 says:

    i liked friday the 13th too actually idk it might be the nostalgia aspect but i like it

  23. ggary04 says:

    This game was rated one of the top ten worst of all time. I am 27 now and will admit I sucked at it when I was a kid but have gotten a lot better at it these days. I stll however have not beaten it nor looked at a guide to learn how to beat it but I will say this, after all these years jason still startles me when I know hes coming. This game in my mind is one of best nes games to date. The music is great graphics are ok and the level of difficulty is what makes this a rather enjoyable game.

  24. ggary04 says:

    Wow that was the wierdest thing ever as soon as you said jason pops in to scare the kids in part 6 i was watching the movie and that was the scene that just happened…Creepy….I was wondering if the game was based off of part 6 thats why i was online doing research

  25. mldfry says:

    man this game STILL scares me, and I was a kid when I played this!

  26. AnAscendingAngel says:

    This game gave me the creeps when I was little.

  27. Kyuzo -sensei says:

    Thank you very much! Definitely enjoyed this video. As a kid like you said, I couldn’t figure it out. I’ve always wanted to know how to beat the game. Thanks!

  28. Opshunzable says:

    Just stumbled across this game on the internet and I was glad to find your playthrough of it, nice job :)

  29. hwilson0214 says:

    I’ve been playing this for about 27 years and have never beat this game. I still own and still play it every once in awhile. (I dont know if i’ll ever play it again now because i kinda feel like you just beat it for me.) Great job on the video. I never sit through any of these but yours was good. Thanks for the upload.

  30. uncertaintimes411 says:

    Great vid bro. Played this as a kid and took me forever to beat it.
    Watching you play it with the commentary was a treat. Great ending too :)

  31. Ray Tay says:

    Real solid how u still have an NES system bro! You should do some Sega
    genesis reviews if you have one… I still play my Sega from time to time

  32. furrynick says:

    Great job man. No matter what people say, and all that stuff about this
    game been one of the worst games of all time. This is one of my all time
    favorite Nintendo games. I bought Friday the 13th and Ninja Gaiden 1, the
    same day, and they were the first games that I have ever bought in my life.
    I bought the games in 1989 and I still have the game 24 years later. I
    actually also did my own play though of this game. I added a bunch of
    special effects throughout the game,like rain, snow and others. If you like
    to check my playthrough of Friday the 13th, Head over to my channel and
    check it out. Thanks

  33. uniroyalbarrie says:

    Love your videos on this game. True 80’s people know this is the baddest
    nes game ever.

  34. ghostwriter74 says:

    Very entertaining video. Lots of fun to listen to the ‘as you play’

  35. Geo Savarese says:

    Thank you.

  36. Dave c says:

    When I first played this I thought it sucked but after having explained how
    to play it its actually a really original and interesting game.

  37. Adrian Rocha says:

    Is it for Nintendo 2

  38. pHAMBURGLARq says:

    this was a great video thanks for uploading sir! im going to buy this game
    i always loved this game as a kid. But i never got anywhere.

  39. maxwestcomics says:

    There was none of the famous breathing music from the Friday the 13th
    movies…and why didn’t anyone SCREAM in this game?

  40. Eric Willis says:

    super cool bro can you make a live commentary in a walkthrough on the old

  41. zitzblitz123 says:

    that was funny when you said you can fight him mike tysons punch out

  42. Dragonsamuari says:

    All that time spent getting the torch and pitchfork and you finish off
    Jason with a rock

  43. MisanthropicZombie774 says:

    Played this a little when it came out, looks like fun looking back on it,
    I’d enjoy it more if playing as Jason were possible, he wasn’t a bad guy,
    the ones he went after were the ones that were no good really.

  44. Luigi84289 says:

    This was and still is one of my favorite titles.

  45. Luigi84289 says:

    Always found it funny how the black guy was the slowest guy in the game.

  46. maxpower789z says:

    LOL…i used to run out of the room or cover my eyes when that mask
    appeared at the beginning…used to terrify me…could never complete the

  47. Escorpion Venenoso says:

    I never saw zombies in the Fri. 13th movies

  48. Greg M says:

    “He’s had his Rockstar energy drink” Lmao. I really sucked at this game
    when I was a kid, don’t think I ever beat it although I did own it.

    Entertaining, intelligent references on the commentary btw. I enjoyed the

  49. Hannah Ringle says:

    I was at work today and wanted to play this classic game, but alas, cannot
    game at work… ironically I CAN sit on my computer all day. Needless to
    say I watched this.

  50. Hannah Ringle says:


  51. Hannah Ringle says:

    Will you please do Ghoul School?

  52. Canal E.N.K says:

    Man, where can I find the game to download? I’ve been searching on net but,
    I just can’t find it, please help me!

  53. Canal E.N.K says:

    I’m brazilian and I used to play it on my childhood, just classic!

  54. Daniel H Poetry says:

    I’ve never seen your videos before, but I subbed strictly based off of your
    outro and the My Pet Monster in the background. AWESOME JOB!

  55. Will W. says:

    Mark and Crissy actually have the same speed

  56. Alisha Camp says:

    Thanks for posting this! I know this game has gotten knocked quite a bit,
    but I agree with you. This game was actually quite fun.

  57. Alisha Camp says:

    By the way, Jason’s axe always looked like a toothbrush to me….

  58. Greyson Mills says:

    I always panicked when I was low on health. probably due to the friggin
    lake where you can’t avoid anything.

  60. gitarkin says:

    After all these years I finally get to see how to beat this game, thank

  61. Mark Jordan says:

    Awesome video and commetary. Loved the “featurette” too!

  62. DrewPicklesTheDark says:

    A few LJN games are truly as bad as people act though, try X-Men (The 1st,
    not the Wolverine one)

  63. richard jedlicka says:

    really good video man

  64. richard jedlicka says:

    love the commentary and how about nightmare on elm street

  65. richard jedlicka says:

    cool ending man.!!

  66. Challaxe Luithiadir says:

    items like the knife, key and vitamins are found by jumping and are always
    in the same place. they will reappear for a few screens but are basically
    found in the same place… machete appears after killing 60 zombies. I love
    this game

  67. AndrewtheDude says:

    Great video. Scary game and the music still creeps me out to this day.

  68. AndrewtheDude says:

    I used to have such a hard time figuring out where to go and what to do.
    This guy made everything look so easy.

  69. virkevan2006 says:

    a nightmare on elm st.

  70. djugel says:

    That note in the cabin (when you’re talking about Corey Feldmen) .. doesn’t
    always show up.. very odd.

  71. djugel says:

    Yeah,, I only see that note 1 time out of 10 .. the “other” way seems to
    work better (when you actually go into the woods)

  72. Da Fr says:

    Is it me or does “Lord Kayoss” SOUND INCREDIBLY LIKE modern country singer

  73. uniroyalbarrie says:

    That would be sick if you did a Simon’s Quest video.

  74. Andrea Badiali says:

    This game here in Italy reached the value of 150 euros … I’m a huge fan
    of F13th and Slasher movies in general, I grown up with them and nowadays
    it is one of the main reasons why I learned english (here we got a 5% of
    that kind of movies distribution) Personally I’ve played this game on a
    emulator and it’s very hard but I like it

  75. James Farmer says:

    lol this crap was one of your favorite games?

  76. stetson999 says:

    Use the torch to light the fireplaces was probably one of those things that
    was lost in translation. Several countries, even English speaking ones,
    refer to a lighter as a torch, so this is probably what they were

  77. Mark Botelho says:

    Great videos! LJN games really do get alot of shit,awesome job of bringing
    them into the plus side. Would love to see a Nightmare on Elm St. Thanks



  79. Cuir-o ldrgard says:

    U rock! <3 <3

  80. pat442389 says:

    jumping around causes items like the small knife, red juice (extra health)
    and the key. Killing 2-5 zombies with rocks will give you the lighter and
    killing a lot of zombies will give you the machete. so will killing Jason’s
    mothers severed head in the cave on day 1.

  81. pizowell says:

    Great playthrough. Loved the bonus footage, too.

  82. AJ Bonine says:

    This video fulfills a desire ignited long ago to see how to beat this game,
    so thank you for satisfying an old curiosity.

  83. Josh Carlson says:

    This game use to scare the crap out of me as a kid. I don’t know why this
    game has such flack on it? Probably cause people take reviews to seriously
    and are just looking for something to hate. Kind of a mongoloid version of
    follow the leader.

  84. Mikey Brown says:

    Your voice is sexy…

  85. アンチヒーロー says:

    Brilliant commentary, man.

  86. Pat McRotch says:

    Wow, I’ve never seen the Pitchfork in this game. That’s cool as Hell. Great
    playthrough dude, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  87. RunaroundStar says:

    This is such a fun and unique game, especially for its time.
    And with the music and concept (madman murdering kids in a secluded camp)
    it was scary as shit as a kid.
    And are the fat/slower councilors stronger? Or just need fat camp….

    Oh, and do a video on Clocktower for SNES.

  88. sspd077 says:

    Great commentary

    Can you do Halloween?

  93. michael brown says:

    In Friday the thirteenth there are no zombies

  94. Clancy Wiggum says:

    lol that was an awesome video. subbed

  95. Areala21 says:

    Great video, fun commentary, and excellent tactics. I’ve loved this game
    years, but always understood the bad rap it got, because as a kid in 1989,
    this thing was hard as hell. Tackling it as an adult is much more
    enjoyable. Love to see this remade to expand on some of the concepts
    (lighting the fireplaces in the cabins, etc…). Thanks for posting this.

  96. SunbeltRyders says:

    Man, had no idea how complex this game was! This vid actually makes it
    look good

  97. elephant35e says:

    Debbie is a fast rower, so she’s useful for being stationed at one of the
    lake cabins.

  98. Marcoss Faulk says:

    +LORD KAYOSS thanks for the playthrough I could never beat this game as a

  99. David Rossi says:

    u shold buy my games on my channel

  100. RICARDO .A CABRERA says:

    Very nicely done!! Thanx for giving me closure dude!!

  101. Alexander Urosevic says:

    Your the man!!!

  102. Lennys Junk says:

    awesome brother. one of my favorite games as a kid. ( i ran from the room
    when my dad played it because of the music.) i like that youre a fan of
    the series too. thanks for the vid man. this game is deep. i can only
    hope for a remake or update. i’d kickstart that shit

  103. Jei Dizzle says:

    ECW. ECW. ECW.

  104. Fire Brand says:

    You sir got a subscriber! lol

  105. BuccaneerBruce says:

    Great video. I got this the weekend it came out and beat it within the
    first few weeks of owning it. I haven’t beaten since though.

  106. Nathan Bryant says:

    Mark says thank you! and the girl makes him fight him XD

  107. Doggieworld3 says:

    Oh course. Cavities. Cracking your head open with an axe. #ORALB

  108. Guitarhero1000 says:

    I really like your live commentary playthroughs. Will you ever do anymore?

  109. Carlos Manriquez says:

    I was never able to figure this game out as a kid. I always just wandered
    around aimlessly. It’s cool to see a playthrough of it to see how it’s
    supposed to be. I don’t know why I never thought about looking for an
    actual playthrough of it before now.

  110. jason24cf says:

    Awesome video!

  111. Underrated Retro says:

    Love the commentary. The sidenotes about the Jason movies are great.


    Good video but what was up with 24:23?

  113. thesicilianguitarist says:

    Great video man! Enjoyed the commentary as well. Also the end skit when
    you played some Beavis & Butthead. Hey!! Maybe that is a game playthrough
    you could do? Beavis and Butthead for SNES when their whole goal was to
    see GWAR live! That would kick ass!

  114. GWP JAMZ says:

    Nice super job. Now that’s what I call true gaming. All original and no
    shortcuts. I’m requesting that you do Nightmare on Elm Street NES

  115. Vernon Schaal says:

    What people don’t seem to get the concept of, is that LJN is a publisher,
    and not a video game company! This game was developed by Japanese video
    game developer Pack-In-Video for the Famicom, and Nintendo Entertainment

  116. Captain Death says:


  117. Michael harris says:

    awesome play through man. i love this game but never had the right strategy
    to beat it. i didnt realize the torch was so easy to get

  118. Eric Stoner says:

    That was amazing you played through it like a champ and it was really funny
    great job

  119. Regal Ace says:

    Great game. The cabin music was ominous, then tzhhhoooom! Could stop a

  120. Jonathan Levin says:

    Great video, thanks for putting this one up!

  121. Carpet Pissers says:

    finally beat this game for the first time just tonight. i took your advice
    and stared at the final screen for about 30 minutes. very rewarding, jason
    is one tough son of a bitch on that third day and your walkthrough helped
    immensely. cheers man, thank you!

  122. Tim Abraham says:

    My 1st NES game, very cool.

  123. Prince Envi says:

    Brought back many childhood memories….

  124. nelson medina says:

    man, you long the game, let killed by jason, only leave one character
    live, and you fight with jason, and jasson dont flee for fight.

  125. Captain Questions says:

    Cool video. Did a good job on the commentary.

  126. Peter Trujillo says:

    I read on ign that they are in production of remaking this game!

  127. Retroreviews Plus says:

    Love the Music when you go into the cabins and at the map screen, creepy
    and haunting

  128. azimuthclark462 says:

    great video, enjoyed your style. thanks

  129. Tameka Jones says:

    Great Video!!!

  130. Randy Brosset says:

    Great video, Exactly what I was looking for, found your video on my first
    click. A friend of mine had this game growing up. I got over to his house
    every chance i could to play the game though i was never able to beat it. I
    got the game later on and also never finished it. I want to go find the rom
    and give it a go again. thanks man.

  131. Nunya bizness says:

    Jumping around helps spawn items in my experience with this game. Forrest
    and cave spawn medicine more often.

  132. MrRoboto81 says:

    Now THIS is video commentary done right! It’s very informative and helpful
    for those interested in beating the game. Too many other “commentaries” out
    there are nothing but 7th grade humor from high school kids who all think
    they’re the world’s greatest standup comedians and in love with the sound
    of their own voice.

    Excellent vid and I look forward to more!

  133. Carlos Sanchez says:

    Very satisfying to watch this after James and mike couldn’t complete this
    game. Thank you for this.

  134. NamelessFlux says:

    ROFLMAO!!! I lost it when you called Jason’s axe a ‘Giant Oral-B’. XD

  135. Timmer Ratajczyk says:

    “Cut it out, fartknocker!”

  136. Don Skiver says:

    You have a “My Pet Monster”!! Kick ass!
    Also, very nice and informative playthrough.

  137. Matthew Myers says:

    Like you said, a lot of people didn’t like this game because it was
    difficult to figure out for a kid. I never did complete it but I had a lot
    of fun trying. Always been one of my favorites

  138. Darren Harrison says:

    hope you do nightmare on elmstreet Eventually XD

  139. Michael R. says:

    i had no idea about the sweater or pitchfork, i finally won this game !!

  140. Lock Busters says:

    I liked this alot so I subscribed. Top notch!

  141. FiFi Famous says:

    I kind of wish they remade this game for the 3DS or something. It gets a
    lot of hate but it’s actually a great concept and paved the way for other
    survival horror games.

  142. algol291 says:

    LJN made ‘Maximum Carnage’ for the SNES, and that’s a decent beat em’ up.
    But, ‘Jaws’ sucks.
    Can’t play LJN games without an instruction booklet. You’d never figure
    them out. I never knew that it was Jason’s cabin in the woods, or that you
    had to light all the fire places to get the flashlight, or how to get the
    pitchfork from The floating head. Too cryptic.

  143. CHRISTIANNWO says:

    Worth the awesome ending

  144. Niugrad says:

    Very good walkthrough. I never knew that you could switch counselors
    during the game.

  145. Sean Puffynipples says:

    Watched this video and I like the way you’re so calm and collective when
    you play. Definitely subscribed.

  146. Radley Carter says:

    12:20. I thought the EXACT same thing when I played this as a kid. Totally
    thought it was a toothbrush.

  147. apaduano100 says:

    Awesome professional walkthrough. Now I finally know how to play this game
    like a pro.

  148. LtJackMorton says:

    You are awesome!

  149. Kyle Villatoro says:

    good playthrough

  150. Mieko Taylor says:

    Love the video!

  151. Jaron Goh says:

    Very well done playthrough! Even with trivia from the show as well!

  152. Gaming Room says:

    On most commented gameplays we have some moron acting like a retard trying
    to be funny but it’s just annoying. This one is cool and interesting,

  153. theurinal says:

    Hands down the best commentary on youtube, keep doing them bro.

  154. coffeeblak86 says:

    When i was a kid i was too scared to play this game. I played it at night!
    Never beat it :(

  155. evan water says:

    This game was so hard. But i was so young when I played. when jason would
    come i’d get scared and sort of just give up heh.

  156. TaintedMustard says:

    That totally does look like a giant toothbrush.

  157. Tim McCallum says:


  158. epicfail says:

    sick game + badass voice

  159. TheSarge x says:

    great video.

  160. Smothered Hope says:

    Loved it! Game brings back memories. Your commentary was good. The gameplay
    made me nervous at times. It’s that whole “backseat driver” thing. I’m
    curious as to how you recorded the video from console? I thought at first
    that maybe you were using an emulator and recording the audio from PC mic,
    but I saw in the end blooper real (which was funny btw) that you have the
    actual console.

  161. sammyd19801 says:

    Brings back great memories. Late 80s. Friday and Saturday nights. Playing
    this and watching the movies. Thankyou for posting. Seems like its so easy.
    But 9-10 years old. ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE LOL. Thanks again.

  162. BayAreagirl says:

    I was searching for the movie, but stumbled across this. I have never had
    a game console (I know…I was deprived as a child). Anyway, enough about
    my lame childhood. This is such an awesome commentary. Very informative,
    and I love your deadpan humor. “Where’s Paul?” had me cracking up!

  163. thegeezerdan says:

    Do Who Framed Roger Rabbit the NES version.

  164. Tim Cirulis says:

    Loved this game. Still play this game awesome loved it.

  165. VelkPwnsAll says:

    Thanks for this. Always wondered how the game ended. I always died. lol I
    could beat Nightmare on Elm Street, but Jason always some how managed to
    hand me my ass every single time. lmao

  166. SHN Survival Horror Network says:

    hahaha the ending was awesome and i really liked your walkthrough :)

  167. Jason Voorhees says:

    your the only person on earth who beat this. your the best.

  168. Jason Voorhees says:

    This is the best commentary paired with a game walk through I’ve ever
    watched. Love it. Thanks for taking me back to the past!

    How do I get to play this, I have a wii. I don’t know how to do roms so if
    I need that then I need a human guide.

    Is that a Nintendo on your coffee table?

    Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this man. I was 6 when this game came out
    and it required more strategy and precision than I was capable of at the
    time. Of course it scared me a bit too. I never beat it and seeing this
    walk through made the kid in me pump his fist in the air! Awesome job.

    this have a terrible bug, if you kill jason on the fields and you go away
    of the place where the combat has placed jason gets invincible

    yooo dude why wouldn’t you fight Jason’s Mother on the third day with
    whoever has the sweater? You can easily take her with an axe if you do.
    Then you don’t have to waste the torch.

    Then you have this whirlwind of destruction that can just chase down Jason
    and slaughter him effotlessly

  176. Elizabeth Shier says:

    I never could figure out this game when I was a kid. Thanks for the play in
    the game all the way through to the end. Loved your ending!
