This is my top 10 list of influential flashes of 2008.
1. - Move Your Feet - by rtil
The best non-sprite pixelated flash I have ever seen. It has inspired my video The Pixelmas Shorts as well as many others. It is a must see.
2. Fallen Angel by RobsH66
Fallen Angel, well, epic.
I haven't seen anything else that had this much time and effort put into it.
3. Boogley Bus Stop by TheBoobley
This show how a unique style can make an unknown artist, known. TheBoogley's style continues to captivate me and I am sure others feel the same.
4. One Big Morphing Orgasm by TheBoogley
I didn't want to do two submissions by the same author, but I just HAD to add this to my list. It shows NG that amazing collabs ARE possible, even on the most simplistic concepts.
5. SMALL by Morrowdays
I'm just a sucker for unknown artists. I just love this video and its use of textures and all homegrown music and art. More NG submissions should be like this where ALL the things in it where made by you, the creator.
6. Brian's Got A Problem by Sagerman
This one is just great. Who can't like this? It's funny all the way through, unlike the majority of NG's attempts at humor.
7. Edible Castle 10 by EdibleCastle
This video show how much you can realy hype up a video. Newsposts and Contests for a single video? Whether you enjoyed this video or not, keep in mind that it left a mark on NG.
8. Baman Piderman by AlexButera
I show this video to anyone I introduce NG to. Everyone I know that watches it starts to see NG in a better light.
9. Art In The Playground by TommyLM
Watch. It's inspired me and I feel I am not the only one.
10. The World's Hardest Game by Snubby
We all hate em for this, but frankly, this is one of the most addicting games I have ever played. I hate to love it; love to hate it. It's fun but aggrivating. It's simplistic, yet complex. It's what more gmaes should be like.

Second this. Frost'D was quality. Most entertaining flash I watched this month.

Man it took me a while to figure out wether the Mindchamber one was actually 3D or real.
I think ScaryMovieGuy is awsome for bringingenuity Dubs to Newgrounds but thats just my opinion

I like them so much that I'm setting one as my desktop. Sorry Stamper, but I will no longer be looking at your Tokyo background every time I turn my machine on!
So here's a random task for anyone who wants to participate: Make a list of what you consider to be the most influential Flash submissions from 2008.
This is probably what most people will choose, but I have because it raises the bar for the many animators of this site. It does what Waterlollies did in 2007, let my jaw drop.
Visiting Newgrounds Since 2003

I'll be getting the 2008 History page up soon, too. I really gotta update the whole NG history section.
Ahh, so that's probably why you're asking, then. Here I go:
^or any other part of the series
(more to come, I can only put in 50 flashes in one post)
And here's the rest:
Ok there are a fuck load of flashes that had been "influential" this whole year. This is a list of the ones that had been influential in my opinion and that I've watched. I can't really judge the ones I haven't watched.
I think that Bright in the Screen was one of the most influential submissions on me that I've seen this year.
I loved it because, although the programming had a fair few bugs in it, the graphics and some of the concepts which appeared in the game were, in my opinion, quite powerful and unseen in a game before (well, by me at least). The-Mario-Man even had an epiphany (top review as of posting).
The bugs became some kind of love-hate thing, because they made the game more frustrating, but at the same time, offered more challenges. When you're afraid that a bug will suddenly warp an 'enemy' right next to you, it somehow makes the game more exciting (I don't think it ever happened, though). There was even a level where the objective was to exploit a wall-climb bug; one of several interesting ideas in the game.
Plus, the author replied to complaints in a clever and funny manner.
Well, it certainly influenced me; my friends have almost had enough of my quotations from the game and the pictures I draw based on it =)
Also, it was the first thing I put on my favourites list after deciding to remove everything on it due to lack of any update.
On another note, Osuka is really showing off his 3D talents with those nice new wallpapers! Very well made!
Doomsday-One, working on stuff better than preloaders. Marginally.

Don't forget ScaryMovieGuy hesitance contributed alot to Newgrounds over this year like his hilarious funny Dubs :)
Hahah, in Russian Osuka means oh "bitch." Sorry, I felt the need to share that.
i dont kno about influential but i always look forward to stamper movies. Theres a reason his are last on every collab. Tom i say you should demand a NEW stamper movie every month from him. OR how abouta contest between mind chamber and stamper of who can make the best/funniest flash. That Transformer movie stamper made for the transformer collab still is the funniest flash ive seen yet.
Both those wallpapers look great. Working with 3D is not hard and to create anything as beautiful as that in that standard is simply amazing. Thanks, Osuka.

Freezepop's Jem was the best Flash I've ever seen. The choreography was amazing and everything fitted perfectly. I worshipped VC for over a week after seeing that.
