The Tank Award is really a big thing, and a good idea to have it. Good winners, Waterlollies are a big hit because of the graphics, I can't believe it's made in flash. NG rumble, it's a big hit here on NG, because of one thing, the characters are related to NG!

MaestroRage, he's a good musican, let's thank him for all the audio he have given us!

Luis, be proud of winning user of the YEAR. It's not just user of the day, which is even chosen randomly. User of the year is chosen for reasons!

That you define the validity of a person's opinion on whether or not they have a girlfriend is disappointing. You should learn not to be dependent on women, but instead explore a wholesome dependency on yourself. Go out there and meet the real you: he's dying to be found.

And if you're going to complain about theft and plagiarism, why not start with the people using actual copyrighted songs rather than bitch about a song you suspect might be inspired by something else? You know, speaking of whining. Your topic, not mine.

Oh, and bringing up Vanilla Ice is obviously the surest way to cinch an argument. Nice.

opinions are important. the validity of a person's opinion can usually be defined by the fact that it's appearing on an internet.

Yeah. There's a difference. You were blaming Tom for the results of the vote. Which makes you ignorant. Not that it wasn't blatantly obvious.
There's a difference between "waah i dont like da results" and "waah i blame tom for this"

Only thing bugging me is that the NG Rumble is an inside project which has some of the staff people in it, but it does deserve it though so I don't complain about it.

And waterlollies... Who wouldn't have thought of that? Adam Phillips truly deserves that place.

MatroRage (Did I get that right?), what an awesome musician, I thought the best musician wouldn't get an award though, but oh well, gongratulations to him.

And Luis... He seriously deserves it, what is NG without Luis? Such a bad place I can tell.

Awesome game, very addictive. I loved all of the features that have been added into it, to make it like a proper 80s / 90s beat 'em up

MUSICIAN OF 2007:
MaestroRage

I'll have to listen to some of your stuff - I've never heard of you - probably because I don't really haunt the Audio Portal.

BEST MOVIE OF 2007:
Waterlollies

OMG! Excuse me for being a little controversial, but how can such a dissapointing flash be voted the very best of 2007?! Surely you guys on the panel must have seen the wow factor of Adam Phillips' earlier works on the Bitey of Brackenwood series. This hasn't delivered anything new or amazing to me, as Bitey was so far ahead of its time, but for me, the time has caught up with this series and we haven't seen anything new, or innovative, when we consider the large amount of time spent between episodes.

As you can probably tell, I wouldn't have ranked this in the top half of the rankings, as my favourite for this award would have been What is Love, Blockhead Ghostmas or Madness Consternation.

Face it Tom, if you re-released Pico, with the same graphics but a new plotline, the only reason it would be voted so high would be because of your name being attached to it. I like Phillips' work, but it seems that there have been some fanboys of his creeping into the judging panel.

I'm disappointed. For me there where better things then waterlollies. I found it to be quite boring, sure it looked ok but for me it is not all about art work.

There where definitely better games then NG rumble.

What a disappointment... really unfair votes here. A professional animator wins against a bunch of non-professional ones and an inside project wins against some really good games. Just about every other game on the nominations list were way better than NG Rumble, but since it includes NG characters, it gets the most votes. Sonny could've easily beat it out. And there is more to animations than just the art-work, but that argument has already been explained.

Waterlollies definitely deserves it. I´m not quite sure about NG rumble though. Congrats to both anyway.
