It's pretty irritating when you are a new generation NG user and you never get to experience these "great things".

I'm surprised that people actually come here for games. I always thought movies but whatever.

Games get a couple more hits because apparently every one loves to play games. Is that really what Newgrounds has come to? Just another website for games? What happened to the Portal? Where did every one go? Youtube? DeviantART?

The reason why the view counts are low is because the portal is overactive where the number of people submitting is beginning to outpace the number of people watching; I remember back in '09 when you'd be lucky to get 10 save/blam points a day, now I average fifty a day, sometimes I even score 150.

Aha, I'd be careful what you wish for. I feel like I'm at that awkward stage between having content that's good and content that's great and flashy (whether that's games, animation, music, or art. Covers all bases). Really, NOT everybody is good at flash yet. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I personally think NG is better off with the better, glossier content now and leaving all the vulgar and less flashy stuff in the past, although you do see that kept alive in some ways.


Are you MAN enough to click this?!
