Everyone's so busy comlaining about the News that no one noticed the awesome picture that guy made in Torture Game 2. It's pure art. Whoever said Video Games aren't art probably never painted a picture in their life.

Hehe that game deserves the credit.. It reminds me that NG can still stirr the media, just like when Kaboom! (suicide bomber game) came out.. I wonder if there's gonna be a sequel to that.

The people in the News are really stupid because there job is to report and make things sound over dramatic to get more views. But then because of this over protective mothers with hyphenated names try to get websites like Newgrounds of the internet. What people in America don't realize is that AMERICA DOESN'T OWN THE FUCKING INTERNET!!! And we have freedom of speech, so actually if you are offended by the game don't watch it.

To sum this up: Pinko Liberal Bisnitches always try to offened internet rights and they always make people think that they are in control. People like Hillary Clinton, Nancy Palloci and Rob Rhiner are just
dumbasses who think that children are effected by violent video games and they also want to change America into a Socilist Type Goverment. FUCK the democratic part and Fuck the system, Amecia and stupid ass American citizens need to back down they need to understand they are not the rulers of the world and they need to choose if they are going to respect peoples rights or if they aren't. They can't have their cake and eat it too.

One less thing to any body viewing this website: Fuck the Patriot Act, it is a violation of me as an American Citizen (I personally believe this act would be okay if it only allowed professional Govermental agencys to tap phone lines, not gay lawyers.)

The funniest part about Fox News' massive freakout over the torture game is that they really have no clue what a lot of the flash games on here are like :3 If they played, say, Madness Interactive, there'd be a story on that too. When Fox sees something they can rant and squeal about, they definitely rant and squeal, but rarely follow up on their story or continue their "investigation," as they like to call their little bullshit sessions.

I agree with SecretClock-- we should have an anti-press day. In fact, I think this site needs more themed days/contests, period. Maybe not with prizes or anything, but just an idea or theme to give people inspiration. Maybe people get enough inspiration from the events surrounding NG as it is. If a bunch of people made anti-Fox flashes, you KNOW Fox would report on it. "...personally insulting news anchors, profanely denouncing Fox News, and terrorizing innocent people like an INTERNET HATE MACHINE"

Hey I am not changing the thread topic but anyone who agrees we should have an anti-press day post this after your post:

So, there's no sign-up necessary? I just deposit, and there's a 1 in (number of people who deposited) chance of me winning $100?

It makes you wonder what Fox News correspondents thought they were going to see when they decided to click on a link leading to "The Torture Game 2."

Just a side note... Fox and the Patriot Act are both products of right wing conservatives and not liberals. But yeah there's a lot of douchery out there.

Congrats to the winner of the 100 dollars. I'm jealous. XD. It seems as though the Torture game has been getting a lot of publicity. Oh well, it'll just attract more people, I suppose.

Sorry Tommy F, yes Fox and the Patriot act are supposed to be from the conservatives and I agree with you but the conservative republicans were not acting like republicans when the Patriot act was passed. The purpose of the republican party was for a smaller and less powerful government but the Patriot Act actual goes against what the Republican party stands for so they were acting like democrats not liberals though (don't know why I said that). But I agree with you, total douchery. The Government is filled with fucked up hippocrits, let's leave it at that. ( as conservative as FOX news claims to be they are just liberal faggots.)

After News is put out Tom Fulp should put in a few extra adds for a 7-day period and make extra money. Although that is kinda hard to do.

I personally don't find the game all that fun, but I'd be interested in learning who the game was made for. When the creator submitted it, he selected certain criteria that would allow Newgrounds to put an appropriate rating on it. That's how it's done when you submit to Newgrounds. You select the indicators marked " violence," "explicit violence," "sexual content," and/or "explicit content." I don't remember if those are the exact terms used on the Newgrounds submission page or not, but anyone who has ever submitted to Newgrounds knows that you classify your submission with any of those indicators that apply.

Anyway, my point is, that the Newgrounds rating was something like "Mature: Excessive Violence." The "Mature" label, applied based on the criteria selected by the author, clearly means that it isn't for children. That much is obvious. When Fox news presented their report, they described the game this way, "It puts your child in the driver's seat to torture a make believe hanging person..." At the bottom of the screen, there was some text that read, "Let's kids torture human figures" The Fox report appeared to be misrepresenting the game as a submission deliberately made for kids. They had a commentator on talking about the effects it has on kids.

But it obviously wasn't for kids, because the label at the top of the screen said "Mature: Excessive Violence."

I don't know about you, but if I was the creator of that game, I'd sue the shit out of Fox News for slander, especially if I put a mature label on it everywhere I submitted it. Seriously, if the guy made this for a mature audience, he doesn't need Fox telling the world that he designed it for children. I believe that's called slander. Sue 'em.

The Newgrounds Corporation (lol) should sue Fox News for slander! Fox News has gotten away with slander many times before and I think it is time to be like a drunk husband and punch them in the mouth. Fox news once was a good news station but they have hired such retarded CEOs and producers who hire dumb ass reporters.

Bill Orielly is jacking off to these comments as I speak.

Does fox network even realize that MATURE means NOT KIDS? seriously, even though its open on the site, they think that its just for children because its a game on a website that just so happens to have kid-friendly content. what a load of Bullshiest. Not to mention that Fox is the same network of liberal integrity that said that Mass Effect had the most Realistic and Disgusting(you didn't see anything you shouldn't in a mature game, and it was as tasteful as a sex cutscene can be) interactive(video) sex scene in a video game. Notice something? Fox has no real news, so it finds as much crap that could be considered "questionable" or "shocking" to yell about in a melodramatic voice. "It teaches kids how to TORTURE HUMAN BEINGS!!" wow. Very nice to the people on this site, Fox Network. Anybody realize that this could be a stress reducer? It gives people the ability to take their anger out on something without actually doing it. Don't forget, INTERACTIVE BUDDY! its the exact same thing, only mature. Fox is a bitch.

Exactly! People who watched Fox's news broadcast will come here and look, then they'll look at all the other great (although maybe less disturbing) stuff.

I found an email to the MSNBC website blogger or whatever. It think it is by an NG user.

Dear Winda,

Why do you think it is okay to complain about a little computer game, because you can?

If you saw the title: The Torture Game 2 then what were you inspecting. In fact, how did you learn you could chainsaw off the head of a defensless man? Did you try it first? Was it because you didn't take torture seriously until YOU thought it went to far. I agree with you that the game is sick. But you took it too far. Publishing an article about this game was a big mistake because Newgrounds viewers are going to probably make fun of you for the next few months.

You should not complain about other peoples abilities to have rights! The creater of the game was praticing his own freedom of speech just as you did in your article. So he made a game, what is it to you? He has the same rights as you so do not try to take them away.

When I read your article I also realized you read the review ratings, these ratings are not for what the game is about but the engine, graphics and overall quality of the game. While The Torture Game 2 is the only game that you noticed there are hundreds of other games, possibly thousands that contain a same genre. Honestly, I see were you are coming from but why did you have to go bitch about it? Was it lack of stories? Ratings?

Nice article though, you are a good writer but you should not complain about things like this, even though you can (because of your rights).

by the way you can tell her she's a bitch right here! (or agree with her)
