Hamburg is pretty modern , at least in the center.
But what could be a big improvement.. For example more "normal" police with uniform and that hat ... there are just these "mercs" with MPs in black when you see security, I feel like in some dark future rpg when walking through the city sometimes.
And I want more traffic lights with countdown timers. Somewhat useful. And glowing street marks everywhere.
But less airplanes.
More green like trees and stuff would be cool too. Im studying biolgy and green makes my eye happy. Almost everything would grow in the city because of the almost artificial climate.
And more big displays like sawn in pictures of Tokio and Japan.
Even though they keep building modern lokking things in the city they never include displays.
In my eyes its pure irony that the small food stores at the electro trainstations switched from common ad signs etc. to huge LED TVs that show product slideshows. Or bluescreens sometimes.

I would go for this. I study in Glenside, and there is very little to do there in my opinion. Any ideas (within reason) that have been listed here would probably be well received by the students at least, if not the entire town.

Awesome idea!

Being that this generation should have some kind of place to go gather and give input. My town badly need such a place. A lot of the youth here are mostly airheads and they don't even know the classic games that shaped todays games, real pity. Such a place would be really awesome with your ideas and all, tho here an addition to a coffee shop at the side would help bring in more of those born during the wee days of video games. I hope it would come true...

Do you see young people in the neighborhood wasting their money on shitty leisure?
I'm very optimistic / contrarian when it comes to our town, in that it can look like a hopeless mess but I also know I'm gonna be around for decades and I have the potential to impact it in some form. As for young people... There is a college nearby that would LIKE for our commercial district to be a place where the students can go hang out, rather than a stretch of thrift shops anchored by an exterminator and a wheelchair store. I think people would come out of the woodwork if there was something there for them.

An idea might be to create some form of gaming club.

As in, every afternoon from a specific time onwards, you could have an arcade set up, maybe not your traditional styled arcade, but one where you could go and play a ton of games on their respective consoles, for an admitance price.

At the cons you guys have been to you've had all your Behemoth statues and cabinets set up, why not stick them all in there? Really styalise the place.

Investing in a few MAME cabinets wouldn't be such a bad idea either, have one chock full of Capcom games, another Konami, i'd certaintly pay to go there and chances are i'd be quite a regular. Just an idea but thought i'd share.

Good luck mate.

What a town realy needs is a catch-a-rocket station where you can rent rockets and rocket ships. They youle be useful for getting to work on time where ever you where be it Pennsylvania or the record stone on Neptune.

Great to see that the people behind Newgrounds respond and comment with users here. So when someone asks a question, it actually gets answered.

Hey, you could set up an area in that space you've got and put in a few computers. It'd be a bit like an internet cafe, but you'd also have Flash on each computer for animator meet-ups or something.

Also, for the smoothie shop, I'd like to recommend Crazy Udder. Their milkshakes are EPIC!

I remember a couple of years ago that I went to an awesome arcade, but this arcade was extra special. There were rows of TV's and connected to those TV's were N64's and other great older consoles. In the back there were some classic arcade machines, including double dragon. I would really love to see more of those places around. The only problem would be advertising.

That is simply brilliant.

On that note, be sure to have this playing every day when the local schools let out.

store, museum, service, etc. that would make your town awesome?

A bar/club where people could play games in a laid back atmosphere would be awesome (anything from Guitar Hero to Street Fighter to Call of Duty).

Guitar Hero sucks. Make it Rock Band and you've got a deal (not really)

Obviously there's going to be a need for a bathroom for this new wing of Newgrounds HQ. Can't have the guests using the private Staff Only areas now can we? :p

For the next Sketchbook tour, Luis should send out bathroom tiles for everyone to decorate, and you should use those for the bathroom's walls.

One idea I remember was an ice cream store called Bubbles where you would drive up, park, and then girls on Roller Skates would come up and serve you ice cream. It would've tried to have a 50s style to it.

The other I clearly remember was the idea to build a military themed Arcade. Like the idea was that when you went there, you became a member of some fictional nation, and playing the games was to help you train to fight in the upcoming revolution for freedom. So naturally there would've been a lot of shooting games, which were popular at the time (this was in like, 1995) There also would've been a big laser tag arena so people could do combat against each other as well. I think a place like this would be amazing, but it would also probably cost a million dollars to get off the ground, so it's not surprising it doesn't exist.

One of these exist in Morecambe, UK. Big laser area on the second floor with a ton of arcade shooter games downstairs, where you can pay to become a member and gain additional features like faster shooting, temporary shield etc.

You got some really cool ideas Tom. If pulled off right, such a McNewgrounds where you can play with stopmotion and dubbing/voice-acting could attract new people to the world of animation. If I had the possibility to play around with that stuff I would've tried out flash earlier.
