When I opened up that list this morning, before you posted this Newgrounds was the first thing I looked for.

#1 in my book

Also, is that sad?

Now if you're visiting NG at work you can just tell your boss you're visiting a site voted by Time magazine as the 44th best website on the internet...

...it's a piece of modern history.

Way to go NG! Great to see you guys getting more recognition. NG is one of the "big ones" IMO, so it fully deserves to have made it on the list.

Good stuff.

Seriously. Ng is really well planned and designed, look at all the features and all the sexy.

Discuss.

I note that they have declined to rank the websites in the top 50, just throw the 50 best sites out there and write a little blurb.

Still, don't let my cynicism take away from this - great work Tom, for both you and the gang.

Man, this is really awesome and so deserved!
Besides the obvious cool things at newgrounds, it is really a place to be creative and I can imagine that many people who submit here will become the creative heads in the entertainment industry in 10-20 years :)

So *thumbs up*

Nice publicity. But it's unreal to think Newgrounds is ranked #4 in Top 5 best sites for games. Just because we allow mature and even adult rated content on here. Yet again, people fail to see Age ratings.

Hooray Newgrounds. Next step: World domination!

But honestly, Newgrounds is much better than many sites on that list. The reason why NG isn't known by an even bigger audience is that almost everything is allowed. It's not selling itself out and the users decide what stays on the site.

But porn and spam deters many people from visiting the site regularly or sharing the site with their family and friends.

Still that's the soul of Newgrounds and that's because the user base maybe a little smaller but therefore solid and it has earned it's place internet history.


Just my cheesy two cents.... NG I ruv u!

It's great to see a major source like Time recognizing Newgrounds. Their NG description was short and to the point, but NG has so much more to offer than games.

I actually have a little list I made to try and sum up the mission of NG... I feel kinda goofy sharing it but it gives the big overview:

I certainly think you've achieved many of these objectives already. It's a place that's easy to make a lot of like-minded friends. And for me, personally, Newgrounds is the catalyst behind my interest in animation, as well as the main thing fueling and inspiring me to progress and develop on top of those skills, so I can entertain people here, and try to give back the amount that Newgrounds has given me.

And you just loved knowing that every time you went to the arcade, there was the potential for your mind to be blown.

I love this line, and Newgrounds certainly does deliver. What astonishes me is every day, a massive variety of incredible animations, songs, pieces of art and games are pumped into this site. There's so many creative people buzzing with creative energy, and where better to share it, than here?

On top of that, every year, younger and better; animators, programmers, musicians and artists keep flooding in, and I think targeting to inspire younger audiences is the direction Newgrounds should ultimately be heading.


What a good looking mirror.

You and the NG team have made this site an extremely positive experience for me and so many millions of people globally throughout the years. I look forward to watching Newgrounds climb to #1.

Hmm... I wonder how much traffic the new redesign will bring to newgrounds. That will definitely up the ranking on there.

Thats awesome! NG deserves that. But it's not only a game site. It also has movies and music and art and stuff. I think it deseves to be in the Top 10.

Kinda pisses me off that a site that was started four years ago that is basically like any crappy flash hosting site with the added bonus of leveling up (which we had) is above Newgrounds. Newgrounds should easily be number one in the games section, even though it's not just games :/

Yea, fuck you Kongregate.
