There, I did it, I reached the 100k medal point milestone. My goal was to be the first one to do it, but WonderTheHedgehog beat me to it by around 12 hours. It was a matter of who had the chance to play the newest game first, and I had a trip to Amsterdam (Ajax, beer, Red Light District =] ) planned yesterday, and that's obviously more important than playing games on the internetz. Oh well, I don't mind being 2nd after someone who earned both of the Lastman medals within 24 hours. You sir, are skilled. Yes, I know there is someone else who has even more points, but even though he seems like a nice guy, I just hate cheaters. Always have, always will. Even back in the Megadrive / Snes days, I refused to beat games with cheat codes. I mean, It's like finishing a marathon on a bike. Yes, you got there, but you'll never feel as good as the people who did it the way it's supposed to be.
It has been a while since I discovered the medal system. After years of just going to NG to make my daily exp deposit, I found out about Portal Defenders having unlockable achievement thingies, and was instantly hooked. The best thing about the medal system is the large variety of games you get to play. NG has an insane amount of talented artists, guys like Matt Roszak, Makopudding, JuicyBeast, Tom Flump himself and others create stuff I would definitely pay money for. Some games really suck, but most of the time I'm having a great time gaming on this site. I don't think I spend (too) much time on them, I feel like the average person wastes more time watching awful tv shows. Maybe I should spend more of my spare time making music, a small record company from Amsterdam offered me to release a (mini) album of my stuff like 6 months ago, but I'm lazy and so are they, so I'm sure it will happen eventually.
