I SECOND that. It's 2011 FFS and still 50% of the games people play are 2D.
You're speaking absolute nonsense and generating your own random statistics.
I completely agree with Adam. Just because it's 2011 does not mean 2D games are obsolete. Unless of course you completely forgot what gaming was all about, which is to be fun. Not every game has to be 3D. In fact, it's actually extremely annoying that 2D seems to be a dying trend.
Games like Limbo, Braid, Castle Crashers, and a wide variety of other 2D games are a fantastic and refreshing reminder of why we play videogames. If you disagree, fine, but do not shove your narrow opinion down other peoples throat like it's a fact because it's far from it.
If you put a million monkeys at a million keyboards, one of them will eventually write a Java program.
The rest of them will write Perl programs.
every time flash player updates it just get worse and worse and every time I am like "no i won't update this time but then can it really get any worse? why should they fuck it up again. i am sure they improved it" and BAM
its suddenly WAY WAY WORSE AGAIN
ignored the latest update (10.2) for ages- updated today and it's just a nightmare. it would even ZOOM onto a vimeo video and make it impossible to watch that way.
I agree with Hagar. As much as I don'T want to admit it Apple can do some good products- hardware wise (which is samsung actually lol). But then they fuck it up with their awful politics and rules and forcing stuff onto you -it's awful! I don't want a company to tell me what to do with my device.
I guess you can only unleash the full power of an iphone and ipad if you just jail break it and that's pretty much what everyone does anyways.
Also Adam - please stop invading my threads and start little flame wars with people. I don't want that negative stuff and I don't enjoy seeing people getting attacked since it always tends to come from your side.
Probably both will coexist for a long time and don't forget that microsoft silverlight thing. I don't need it and it don't want it so I hope that html5 will kill that thing first! And then slowly on flash ... However flash and silverlight are speedier than html5 at the moment. I am talking out games here. I would be awesome if the flash and silverlight sdks would only export to html5 in the near future ...
