Pretty nice thing, sure. But the screenshot time took from newgrounds is pretty bad. Shows more of the ad than of the acutal site content. :(

Proving that even one of the largest mediums in our society has no clue what they're talking about sometimes.

"Everything, By Everyone" translates into a bunch of online games? I'm guessing the editor for the article spent about 5 minutes on the site and wrote the 1st thing that came to mind, and went onto the next site.

That kind of coverage really irks me. Being a hardcore gamer, I've been able to personally point out a major flaw in every news report on games in nearly every major coverage. It makes you question the validity in anything they say, since it makes you aware that even TIME doesn't take the... 'time' to do any research. /rant

The description just saying that NG is a website with games on it in which some are not safe for kids was fairly annoying, but what was more annoying was making a laundry list and giving credit to Kongregate for features that are either NG original or were apart of NG first.

But this shouldn't take away from the joy of actually making the list!

Well its not like it was unexpected. Just how could the internet pass up an opertunity such as this website?

I love this website, my friends love this website, lots of other people love this website, so its apparent that Newgrounds.com would of raised the amount of discussion and attension.

THE WORLD <3s NEWGROUNDS.

We have movies, games, music and art! Newgrounds is about so much more!!

so much more that they give prizes to ones who dont deserve it?or how ng gives front page to dumb flashes? i mean newgrounds is a good site but the judges are missing something cause it doesnt seem fair in here at times.

Im sorry to burst your bubble, but I doubt you could do a better job of than the staff of NG.
You have done 33 reviews in total. Now imagine doing that, but doing that for every post on Newgrounds.

Doesnt sound like a great job does it? So stop dissing on the people who brought us this great site.

Congrats. It's a shame they didn't mention the animations. I feel it's one of the biggest things that differentiates Newgrounds from all the other games websites and flash portals.

Thought that was hilarious. But yeah, I read some comments and someone said that the screenshot of the site was more ads than the actual site, and I gotta agree with that. Those huge ads on the side get annoying :P

But this is pretty kickass.

Great that newgrounds is getting some well earned recegnition, but newgrounds deserved 1st place.
I love the line "But parents, be warned: not everything on the site is safe for kids." that is kind of
obvious becouse newgrounds says "everything by everyone" and everyone includes alot of perverts.

Newgrounds was at one time a relevant and important site on the internet. But now it is so mainstreamed, so soft, and so filled with garbage it is no longer noteworthy. It is no longer cutting edge, no longer original, and has lost its relevance.

Here now is a place for endless games copy and pasted from generic sites, or just a dumping ground for other sites games, or a place for youtubers to advertise their work. Newgrounds if fading into obscurity.

I disagree, Toss the Turtle, Leo and Satan and Beer Run! Are highly relevant to society today.

They said irreverant. Meaning blasphemous or unholy...

So Leo and Satan, Toss the Turtle, and Beer Run do fit into that category! :D

There's other stuff than games. The games are like 1/10 of what the site is about.

Of course Newgrounds was included - no website list is complete without it. Horrible representation on their part, however, by putting Newgrounds as a game website when it is so much more. I do admit that it is better than nothing though.

Congratulations, Tom. Your brainchild has been featured on TIME's list of the best websites of the year for 2010.

I just saw the news in Wade's Facebook wall. I'm so proud of you guys, NG is officialy an influential website and it's a big part of Internet history. I have no words to say how proud I feel of being part (a very, very small part) of such community of creative people.
