For those of you who don't know, Newgrounds is a site found here:




www.newgrounds.com/



It was made by a guy by the name of Tom Fulp in order for people to create their

own flash cartoons, games, and even music and post it onto the interwebz. Since

then, it's grown, had a few facelifts, and is now one of the most popular sites on

the internet, and certainly one of my personal favorites. I surf it often, wading

through gigabytes and terabytes of crap.



However, some of the flashes I've seen on there were truly great, and I'd like to

honor them here.



So here it is, my Top 10 Newgrounds Flash Submissions. Enjoy!






10. Madness Series: www.newgrounds.com/collection/…




If you're looking for violent, then sweet Lord! Madness is for you. One of the

coolest series ever, with one of the most badass characters ever, some hate this

series for it's ultraviolence and unfair religious symbolism (the main antagonist

looks like Jesus), others, like myself, can ignore the relious, er, stuff, then you have

an endlessly enjoyable series. Also, Aggreggation just came out as of this writing,

and at the moment it's the number one submission on the site!




9. :the game: www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…




If you're a political junkie like myself, then this is one of the funniest things you'll

ever see. While not exactly a game, :the game: is endlessly funny no matter how

many times I watch it. The only reason it's this low is because one of the levels is

incredibly frustrating, and almost made me stop. Anyone who's played it knows

what I'm talking about. But, once you get past that, :the game: is absolutely

sublime from beginning to end.




8. Legend of Miyamoto: www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…




While it's not the best Nintendo themed submission I've seen, it's certainly one of

the prettiest. The flash, although a bit short, has some absolutely boner-inducing

visuals. The music, even though I absolutely hate any form of rap (With the

exception of 2Pac), is oddly entertaining. At first I didn't know why it was rated T

for Teen, until I noticed the lyrics. But regardless, if you're a Nintendo fan, this is a

must-see!




7. Portal: The Flash Version: www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…




Being a huge fan of the PC game, I had high expectations for this Flash

reimagining, and I wasn't disappointed. As difficult as can be, this is one game that

I still haven't completed, even after almost a year of playing. And yet I'm loving

every minute of it. Besides a little bit of faulty hit detection and downright

obnoxious design, Portal is just as fun in flash as it was in The Orange Box. Well,

almost.




6. The Assumption Song: www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…




Just remember, it aint dirty.




5. Fancy Pants Adventure: World 2
www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…



Easily the best game of 2008, FPA2 took the original Fancy Pants, and improved on

it in every possible way. More colors, more secrets, fun music, a decent difficulty

level, and the best platforming controls ever done in flash make FPA2 a full

package. Oh, and the if you want to play the newest version of the game, be sure

to check out either Brad Borne's website, or ArmorGames.com.




4. There She Is!! series:
www.newgrounds.com/portal/sear…!!




Why the hell isn't there a "There She Is!!" collection?! Anyway, this series, from

beginning to end, is a masterpiece. SamBakZa, you are a master of flash. You took

a simple story of a cat and a rabbit, and created a heartwarming, refreshing,

satisfying, and indeed, epic story out of them. I salute you! Oh, and incidentally,

what is an amalloc, anyway?




3. Power Star 4: www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…




Sure, Power Star 1 - 3 were great Mario tributes themselves, but for me the series

was at it's peak with the fourth and final installment. Not only is this the best Mario

submission ever, it's quite possibly the most epic story ever created in flash.

Although I will warn you that it's not for the faint of heart. Intense gore and a truly

heartbreaking ending make this for the mature audiences only.




2. The Awesome Series: www.newgrounds.com/collection/…




Often copied, but never quite duplicated, the Awesome series is by far the funniest

series ever to hit Newgrounds. Incredibly profane, bloody, and explicit, the

Awesome series made making fun of video games fun again. My personal faves are

Metal Gear Awesome 2, and PSP Squirrels.








1. :the Composer: www.newgrounds.com/portal/view…





Incredibly underrated, :the Composer: is by far the most emotionally resonant

cartoon ever made. I'm not at all ashamed to say that I got a little teary eyed

watching it, and it left something with me. Why do I love it so much? Well, mostly

because we all have a little bit of the Composer in us. We're kicked around, we're

discovered, we're loved, we're kicked around some more, and descend into

obscurity. :the Composer: proved to me that you don't have to swear, rip people's

heads off, or swear to be entertaining. We just have to be ourselves. And that's

why :the Composer: is my pick for the greatest Newgrounds submission of all time.

++ART THEFT++
There is something I want to address to you all before anything else. It is an unfortunate phenomenon that occurs more frequently than any of us would like to think. This phenomenon is art theft: when an individual, browsing the internet, sees an image they like, and says "wow! I can't draw very well, but if I take this little-known artist's work, I can become popular and make lots of friends!" Thus, the art thief is born. To this day I don't know why people do it. Everyone and their mother's dog knows: stealing is not only wrong and unjust, but illegal. People go to jail all the time for taking things that aren't theirs. So why is it that, t

Fred + George Weasley Analysis
Fred & George: A Short Character Analysis Right, so first off I'm a big fan of the twins: both twins, not just Fred. I've always appreciated both as separate characters and I've never really understood how so many people never picked up on their differences. So I decided to do what I do best - RANT (wayhey!). Keep in mind this is just my own opinion based on what I've read in books 1-7. In the first place it's important to know and understand the twins' differences, especially if you're writing a story that puts particular focus on them. Yes, both twins are bonkers, fun-loving, flirtatious, stubborn and lest we forget both in the possession

Why I think Tech+Rev works
For the past year or so, I keep on hearing how Rev and Tech are not a couple and will never be a couple.  As a Tech/Rev supporter, I wanted to write this down and let other people know why I support it and why it could work out. For all fangirls who whine and complain that Rev and Tech are not gay and don't want them to be paired up... Deal with it. Just because Tech or Rev are not paired up with your stupid Mary Sues or yourself, that doesn't mean you have to get pissy whenever you see a Tech/Rev fanart or fanfic. So why do we like Tech/Rev? Well most of us like it because it is implied in the show. If you don't like Tech/Rev because of

This is my personal top 10 favorite animations and games ever submitted to Newgrounds. Oh, and for those who don't know, Newgrounds is a site where people can submit their own flash animations, games, and music. Think YouTube, just without the bugs and the idiot moderaters.

I have to argue one point because it gets under my skin extremely, BEST MARIO SERIES? It's good but I prefer good old Super Mario Bros Z for pretty much showing everyone what sprites can truly do when pushed to the limit. Too bad the series ended though, it was awesome.
