Still enjoyable nine years after its release.

It's surprising that almost all of the people who have seen How to Succeed on NG and How to be A NG Animator God have never seen this and therefore, this (along with NG Sticks) don't feel as special as they were because of those aforementioned knock-offs. However, unlike Combat Instinct, the technical presentation hasn't aged very well. The voice acting, while good for the time, was very monotone and could have been more audible. Plus, the graphics may not be the best, but they got the point across.

What I do like:
-Adressed tacky flash trends in an optimistic way.

What I didn't like:
-The main character could have been animated and voiced better. However, seeing that this was made in 2000, I won't take this down.
-The fact that Biff The Timid ripped off this and NG Sticks.

Overall: For something that hasn't stood up to the test of time; I still enjoyed it. Here's an eight.


Pretty well done man, I think this was the first serious plea for better movies that actually offered people suggestions on how to make them better, kudos to you sir, You did a good "tutorial" here.

Tell em!

Good on ya. Help these sad souls make something worth watching and add music and backround really does add to your video even if you didn't make them. Though it was a big hard to hear you over the music thats all :)


Good point about crap movies with crap stickmen, but I dunno if U meant to do this, but you have no torso. Or chest. Did u mean that?


The thing I liked about this is how noobs aren't getting the sarcasm. Oh well, amusement for me.
