Newgrounds was the first website I sunk a lot of time into as a kid (other than Neopets or Adventure Quest). It was the first place that showd how the internet gives creative freedom to anyone willing to make something and post it. When I was a kid, all we had was a dial up connection, so it would take so long for some of the .swf files to load on the family computer. Remember when everyone had a family computer? Sometimes in a specific room? I always associate Newgrounds and flash cartoons/games with that time. In an age where people are getting either censored or "cancelled", it's good to see Newgrouns still around as a bastion of freedom of expression.
Here's to another year of Newgrounds Shenanigans!
