After a pretty dead fortnight, the GOTW is back on! This weeks winner is
Clwe with his game One Girl Army. Oh, and there was only one
point between this GOTW winner and Fire Fight by Smeby, so bad
I know why Circy didn't include it, from the download itself the screenshots looked like they didn't work. I let him know tha they, in fact do work, but will leave the final decision up to him, due to the less than stellar host.
Hey Brandon, remember 'Lost Valley'?
Anyway graphics is only one part - I'd rather play a decent game with ripped graphics than something like Myst. Or the one that came after that. Or the one that came after THAT.
If I can recall, everyone jumped on me or any other person using ripped graphics in there game, because they were just that, ripped graphics, that or Lib graphics. Now you all againced that theory because one won gotw? nice...
The votes were cheated anyway so I don't see why anyone takes any notice of this GOTW, I can see why ripped graphics annoy people, they annoy me because it cuts out a lot of work for the creator meaning they can focus on gameplay. I know we all want good gameplay but it is unfair for 1 person or a small number of people to take the credit for something that should be shared with a bunch of professional people. I don't think we have many professionals in this community and it is unfair to rip off hard working clickers by what I would consider "cheating". i.e. having an unfair advantage
Meh~ that's just my opinion though
Hayo - Yeah, I could see that was what bugged you. We have quite different views. But yes, using ripped graphics is a form of stealing and is illegal no matter how you look at it. There's also the fact that the ripped graphics help to promote the game, when I didn't make them (is that what you wanted to say?). You could say the same about game music in midi format and sounds, though - which a fair number of people do. Well, at least I am a criminal who owns up to his crimes. If that means anything =P
Wait a minute...wouldn't that just make me stupid?
Accusing of vote rigging probably isn't a smart thing to do... I'll get Rikus to look into it.
And for once you can't blame me for this GOTW winner, cos I haven't been doing it for the last month! Blame Shab! XD
