Ok, so i was chosen to be on the panel to choose a top ten submissions for the month. At first i was super excited and honored. Until i realized how big the list was to choose from. It was something like 200 flashes and games. Most of which I hadn't seen. Now, these were all chosen for their scores i'm sure, but damn. So many to choose from!! I never realized how many great flashes get pumped through newgrounds within a month.
So, i tried to come up with a system, to narrow down what my top ten would be. And proceeded to watch them one by one, or play the games one by one. After getting into it for 5 hrs, i was bushed. And pretty much gave up. i feel really bad, because i only got 2/3's of the way through the list. And i tried, really really hard to watch every single submission to determine which one's deserved it. But, alas, i had to give up. Took way too much time. So....i went with the list i compiled.
Now, i know i probably skipped a few great flashes, but, they seriously need to make the list smaller. I think narrowing it down to 50 would suffice. But, anything over 100 is just insanity!! I couldn't just pick 10 randomly. I dunno if i'm alone on this, so maybe i'll post this up on the forums. See if anyone else had run into the same problem. Oh!, another thing that urked me, was the fact that they didn't give a deadline. What's up with that? I wasn't sure if it was a day's time, or how long. Bleh. I tried my best.
