A rant about the recent attack on violent video games.
To begin, these points have been made time and time again since like the late '90s when the whole controversy began. As have any related jokes. So, as far as content (which this seemed to be riding on) goes, this was just flagrantly unsuccessful. I mean I've heard this a thousand times, and to even begin to think that this is in any regard new or original is simply delusional. That is not to say that I disagree necessarily, but still. If you're going to rant, don't say exactly what has been said before on the topic verbatim, and especially don't make the same damn jokes as everyone else who has ranted on the topic.
I hesitate to call this an animation, as animation, by definition, is supposed to trick the mind into thinking that a series of images are actually a moving object. At this, this...thing fails miserably, as the sole movement is relocating the little squirrel (which delightfully hasn't changed in appearance or quality in a decade or so of its existence) on the screen every once in a while, and changing the position of his arms. No, not moving his arms, as there is clearly no motion happening. This is scarcely something to be submitted to a flash portal at all.
I just believe that after being a part of the Newgrounds community for as long as you have, and animating as long as you have, there would be quite a bit more than this. Quite a lot, really. This seemed like something that was thrown together in thirty minutes because you were feeling pissy and evidently uninspired.
Not that you'll actually read this or consider it though.
So very true
We should make Foamy the symbol of the revolution and start overtrow the governaments(all of them).
FOR THE FOAMY!
Its about time someone took a stand.
Great rant. It really doesnt matter all the problems you can point out with Bandura's Social Learning Theory and how ti applies to the controversy about violent video games people will still blame the scapegoat. Like you said it is much easier to do so. I wouldnt be surprised if once they ban guns they dont try to ban "murder simulators" someday.
