In memory of Laleh Ayaghchi.

New Version Notes:
I downloaded some 3d vehicles, unfortunately one of the TOS's was that I could only use snapshots of it, not really moving around in 3d. If i wanted that i'd have to pay 120$ and i dont think some 3d graphics are worth that money. I think i did alot better this time around. The main reason I re-did this is because even I felt the graphix where below par and i wanted to make it look a bit more decent to show my respect. For those who dont know, my friend Roosbeh's sister died in a car accident last weekend and Roosbeh hasnt been at school since.

To Roosbeh: Wish we could see you again in class again sometime soon. Hoping you can make it to Kwesi's place on saturday, bro.

My sincerest condolences on the death of your friend. I know this must be a hard time for you and I hope you can pull through. However, that being said, this isn't a very impressive flash. If you look at it as though no one is dead and this is just some thing someone created for fun, then you have to admit that it's not long enough and doesn't have enough substance to really be anything.

Some decent graphics coated with a subpar song that last for less than a minute. No plot or anything just someone (who's never shown) driving a few seconds and crashing (into someone else who's never shown). On the other hand, if you're expecting this work to survive the first 200 votes simply because it's tributed to a dead person and you're trying to cash in for an easy score I severely question your morals. There are few things I hate more on Newgrounds than people who try to tribute a flash that took them 15 minutes to make to a victim of a recent tragedy in hopes that sympathy votes will bring up their score.

As I said though, I'm assuming you aren't hoping for sympathy votes, just making a dedication. If that's the case then, as I pointed out, I should vote based on the quality of the flash without being influenced by sympathy. So... I like your art, but make longer flashes with a little more depth.

Swim-The-Swan responds:

Im not expecting a high score. Im not trying to make people feel guilt tripped into voting high.

Its your opinion and you should stick with it. It isnt my choice. I find NG is a truly democratic site where people can vote and voice their own opinions, and im not here to ruin that for anyone. And im definitely not here to "try to tribute a flash that took them 15 minutes to make to a victim of a recent tragedy in hopes that sympathy votes will bring up their score." That is really insulting even to consider that i would try to do something that remotely selfish. For gods sake, its a damn website! People should see that i have better things to tend to in my life rather than getting my average higher.

This took me three days, which still isnt that long i know, but i DID put some effort into this flash. It was mainly for my friends & not for NG. But atleast you took the time to explain why you voted how you did. Alot of people dont do that anymore and are just asses about everything.

Thanks for the review anyway.

I saw your older one you did. I didn't see anything wrong with it.
But once again this one is also good.
Also i am sorry for the hurt you and the friends and family must be going though.

I am sure no matter what you did to show your respect. it would of meant something.
