I agree. It's one of the worst thing I've ever hard the misfortune to "play".

I actually thought it was pretty fun... hoping for a sequel for that one day but that's probably the last one.

On the bright side, it at least encouraged me to write up a rant. Sorry for the shameless plugin but it's just a matter of input on what I'd like to see winning rather than what should not earn any recognition from this at all.

There are a lot of really great submissions this year in the movie category (I haven't played many of the games)! I vote for Alight or Comet.

GUYS:

REIMAGINING THE GAME WON THE MAY MONTHLY GAME VOTING AUTOMATICALLY QUALIFYING IT FOR GOTY.
IT'S NOT TOM'S FAULT THAT 99% OF THE INTERNET LOVES MEMES AND VOMIT AND RAGE ENDUING GAMEPLAY! IT'S THE VOTER'S FAULT.
IT HASN'T EVEN WON AND WE DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL.

This. It's one of the first animations I've seen in the 8 years I've been here that actually made me feel like I was watching a legit television series. Plus it's all original content.


the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them

It's nominated.
IT DESERVES TO WIN!

The animation is amazing, some of the best I've ever seen in any flash ever, it's fucking original, and it's full of wordless emotion.
And it's Spanish so letting it win would make you not racist even though we all call Luis a Mexican.
Out of all the ones I've seen (I haven't seen like 3) this one is my fav.

Fuck those generic unoriginal egoraptor, hotdiggedydemon, and happy harry shorts. That's my new fav movie of 2011.
God, if this doesn't win I'm gonna lose all faith in your judgement Tom, and the judgement of the panel.

These three I see beautifully in not only their storytelling, but their animation is simply amazing. They are truly captivating from beginning to end. I have to say though that Animator vs. Animation III would get my vote if I were a judge. Song Of Skyrim is a musical parody by HappyHarry, in which case seems like it would be amazing and funny, but for me it misses its mark, and is not one of HappyHarry's better animations.

Out of the nominees listed these are the only two I see that truly shined to me. I can only hope that Reimagine :the Game: and William and Sly 2 don't win. Reimagine :the Game: introduced a different style of gameplay that is creative, but it doesn't work to it's control scheme. William and Sly 2 is just as bland and boring as its predecessor.

Well that's my take on it.

Don't think I was not aware of that condition at all. It's still the same fact that it's a shit stain. :P

Now that's what I'm talking about. However, out of the two that have been brought up, I'm liking Ãta Ãta Mirlaquerr a lot more. Now this is the kind of animation talent that I'd have to sell my soul to the devil to even obtain.

I think that I would choose for movies between Pokeawesome and Salad Fingers,even tough,I think Salad Fingers will win,because it has a greater story and,hey,Salad fingers became one of Newgrounds's Mascot.And,for the games,I really enjoyed Burrito Bison,Charlie Sheen and Goin Up.But I think Goin up will win,because it made stay 5 hours in front of the computer and it's made by 2 NG pioneers (Gonzo and Komix)

You guys should definitely add Aqua by G. Zilbalodis, it's a shame this work didn't get as big as most movies, but this is a true cinematic adventure that definitely deserves it's place on that list.

Thanks to redminus approaching me, I took a look at Wilhelm Park and I feel it deserves a spot in the nominees. Some fun twists at the end that kept me interested so this one should be considered:

I highly doubt Lab of the Dead. It's just another Zombie flash. Don't you guys even know how overrated zombies have gotten nowadays? The Zombie theme has been played out long ago, not worth the nominee.
