Because Gamemaker limits creativity. I'm sure if the best Gamemaker user in the World and the average Newgrounds Flash user go together the Gamemaker program would be better but I garment you the Worlds greatest Flash user would demolish.There's always a way to do something in the program, there are so many techniques and shit it would make your head spin.
You said, "Come at me" and now you're calling me an eletist. You're acting like programming is fucking impossible.you're right with this. I'm just tired of feeling like my game is going to be automatically judged just because I made it
in game maker. I was in a feisty mood.
I've been working on this one game for the past 3 months and it's coming along great, but I don't want people to see
that it's made with GM and say "GAEM MAKR SUX!!!!1!!1"
and I don't think programming is impossible, but it's definitely not the easiest thing to do. At least from what I have seen.
I'm one of those who won't judge you by what tool you will use, I've played Iji and it's still my favourite Game Maker game I've ever played, hell it's better then many other half-assed freeware games I've ever played so far, Iji is made by Game Maker and it's done so professionally that you won't notice it's even made by Game Maker, so yeah there's that.
it's just there are many crappy games made with game maker but this also applies with flash movies/games being submitted on newgrounds everyday so in that case flash may as well have the same reputation seeing that there are incompetent submissions passing on newgrounds.
However .exe support on newgrounds is wrong tough, theres gamejolt for that, I'm more happy that Tom Fulp have implemented (albeit invite only) html5 support for newgrounds, I am a Construct 2 user myself and this benefits me.
