it was bad...
i hated it and was going to rate it poorly, but the end proved the rest was just a set up for a tasteless joke i couldn't help but laugh at...i haven't laughed in three years....thank you.
I had to build up to the end. THANKS FOR NOT RATING POORLY!
The more you know...
valid points and a cautionary tale however it kind of annoyed me. I gave it a 9 because i can see how it could be a valuable lesson to the right audience. I tried WoW and was hooked for two weeks until my girlfriend took me away from the computer on vacation and then when i went back to it i realised what a waste it was, not that it's a bad game, it just caters to a different type of player. So i was lucky i didn't get trapped, but i am still a gamer, i just logged 37 hours on Mass Effect two, and i played the hell out of Assassins creed 2 when it came out and i will still do the same thing when Splinter cell conviction releases(if ever it does). And i am still very active socially, i am a college student a martial artist and i like to think a devoted boyfriend, but my hobby of gaming never interfered with any of it, i supposs i was lucky that i had proper guidance. That aside i would like to say this-
WE ARE NOT THE FIRST TO NEED TO ACHIEVE BALANCE BETWEEN TECH AND LIFE, PEOPLE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THEIR EXISTENCE HAVE NEEDED TO DO THIS. WE ARE A LITTLE AFTER THE OVER SATURATION POINT OF TECH CAUSED BY OVERPOPULATION, SO PERHAPS VIDEO GAMES ARE SUPERFLUOUS BUT ENTERTAINMENT IS NOT HOLLOW. GAMES ARE THE ESCAPE FOR THE BOY WITH THE ABUSIVE PARENTS OR THE GIRL WHO'S AUTISM PREVENTS HER FROM MAKING REAL CONNECTIONS(MY COUSIN), NOT THAT THEY SHOULD TAKE PLACE OF REAL INTERACTION BUT LETS NOT FORGET THAT ESCAPE IS NECESSARY FOR SOME AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE NOT ALWAYS IN A POSITION TO SOCIALISE.
also the industry aspect need not be discussed here but lets not forget that some peoples lives are games and they do not lose their life to work or games but have found their dream career that brings them challenges, and happiness.
newgrounds revolves around community so you are preaching to the choir in that respect, yes it is a great way to get your message out, but i cannot but think the pros of the issue could be given more then one moot point.
also the addiction aspect of the problem renders this useless. a person who is in a destructive cycle like this will not be swayed by a flash, but i thank you for those who might have entered one. Your message needs to be spread as it has been before and will be again.
Once again thank you.
Okay so here goes....
Music, it only it had some music i would have doubled the score, poor animation can only get you so far. It had soma assemblance of a plot which is more then i can say for many submissions so it has that going for it at least. Don't explain the story, show it! Also the intro of your names was way to slow, if you are that egotistical at least make a logo with an interesting animation or pleasant font. It wasn't bad for a first go but it wasn't anything great either. Take your time on the animation, there's no rush to put something out there that isn't ready. As far as stick figures go, people draw them when they can't draw or the message of the story does not need detailed animation, the things i saw in this were just a mess...there is a lot of good stick work(insert joke here) out there and it is because of the ease of animation when using stick figures, when i see someone try to use them for animation it sucks when they are used so simply. If your character isn't going to be fully animated, develop the drawing more!
Better luck next time.
Awesome... Most animations were sub-par and as others have mentioned the scenes mostly seem irrelevant and do not relate well. That being said the animation was smooth and if the majority of this would have been a waste of time i thought it was worth it just to see the lightning guitar...kudos. and yes, ColdReaver is awesome.
cool idea but...
The animation was, as others have mentioned shit, but the story was kind of interesting and i liked the song. Maybe just stick to ideas and get a friend to help with animation. The message is annoying and almost preachy at times, but lets not read to far into it. Are cigarettes and other drugs really going to make a meteor come to kill us all? no real relevance there so i guess you just hate smokers. I know thats not how you meant it but was the smoker supposed to represent how poorly we treat ourselves or live? as an alcoholic and smoker i'm slightly offendedd.
First, I tryed to say that people harm themselves when they smoke and use drugs. Second, I want to say that there are not only bad things on out planet. Third I want everyone to think : "What did I personaly do to make Earth better?".
It wasn't bad for what it was
Not really interesting to watch but it was exaycly what it claimed to be, random...
