This was my first animation I've done. I submitted it a couple weeks back, and was so happy to read everyone's comments and feedback. I decided to take some of your advice and revise a few things. Including the lip synching and audio levels. I also added a menu and got rid of the annoying loops. Thanks to everyone for your advice!

As a gamer, I decided to create this short piece, as I'm sure any long time gamer can relate to it. Like most of you, I've purchased the latest and greatest gaming consoles and titles since I first got a Super Nintendo back in the early 90's. But even with today's technology, nothing beats the nostalgia of the games you grew up on. This is a homage to those games. Whatever they may be for you.

Proves a point in a funny way.

I really like this for that act that I pretty much said. "Give something a chance you might end up liking it" It's like that now a days with Video games. Either you play FPS' on xbox/ps3 or you play sissy baby games on Wii then you play the wii and it has great games, and you find out the xbox/ps3 has more than FPS'. Either way this was a great animation keep up the good work.

Yay! A funny one!

After a long finally a funny video on NG. Not like all those kiddie humor, schadenfreude thingies. It really cracked me up, to hear that last sentence of Captain Chieftain (Totally wrong name?).
I self am an admirer of good gameplay, and abstract graphics. - I really hate those realistic 'looking' games with some conditioned gameplay slapped on! This here is likely, Your art skills are not the best, but it's fun!

The deduction of stars is based on the use of the word 'gay'. It's not acceptable to denounce a group of people with using them for expressing disgust!


KayJayBee responds:

the use of the word "gay" in this was obviously not meant to denounce a group of people. I agree that the word shouldn't be used in a derogatory manner, but it's commonly thrown around on Xbox Live and I had Masterchief use the word because he's meant to be a reflection of that community.

I understand wanting to be PC and all, but there's clearly nothing offensive about this. The character is meant to be a reflection of online gamers, who are known for being offensive in several ways.

Was ok

It was pretty good. Some good insights on classic games vs modern ones. ( I love SMRPG, by the way). It did drag on a bit though, it could have been perhaps a bit more concise. Also, the animation really wasn't much more than moving thumbs and mouths. Cuts to the game being played occasionally or maybe a bit more depth of motion would be great. Overall, though, not bad.

Yes, shooting fireballs from your fists = badass

I must say that the animation, well it's actually not an "ANIMATION" itself since there is almost no movement (except for the fingers and the mouth) but damn I kept hooked into the dialogue between Master Chief and (the one I suppose is you)that guy. Everything that guy said is so true, when you have other things to do besides playing and training on fps games, and the fact that Mario RPG is an awesome game with a neat story and lots and lots of things to do. I do also like Halo but I prefer other kind of games besides FPS.

The end was kewl :D

AND YES SHOOTING FIREBALLS FROM YOUR FISTS IS REALLY BADASS.
