My point was, that after seven years of killing montages being released with the same headshots, multi-kills, and sticks - all with little variation in execution - it seems strange that people would find these videos more original than something that invokes the standard physics and animations in different, thought-provoking, ways. If I were to see gameplay with at least any sort of creativity to it anymore, I'd be more than happy to vote for it. For example, back in halo 2 when sticky launching was popular. That used to drive me bat-sh.t because of all the crazy ways people would come up with doing those. It's not so much a bird per se, but the overall concept of originality in gameplay.

Granted certain videos can come back from that problem with originality in the editing, but I don't believe a video should be entirely about the editing. It needs a healthy mix of both editing and substantial, original, subject matter. Sort of like inception if you've seen it.

Anyway, that's my take, and you probably wont agree with it. So I'm done.

There is hardly a difference between the two in the English language. Originally, the award was called "Most Original and Creative Entry", but upon further review of the semantics, we realized it was incredibly redundant. It's like calling a tower "big and huge". This is why we changed it to just "Most Original Entry".

Real mature. You can't defend yourself in an arguement, so you just mindlessly spew generic insults.

Jumps and gameplay cannot be compared like that, I don't see how people do not understand this...

So let's sum this up:

The jumps aren't original because there are numerous jump video's? There have been numerous frag video's with a custom HUD too. Does this solve it? Nope. I'm now going to type out exactly why I think LBYL3 is more original than Animatage:


Animatage constist out of this: Multikills that have been done before, normal transitions, no effects appart from the custom HUD and placing all the things in the right position, give it the right movement and timing.

LBYL3 consists of this: a regular showcase of jumps like we see in alot of jump video's and jumps that are never been done, which requires alot of creativity and originality.


The drawn HUD has been done before, the editor just took it to a way higher level. Is this original? Not entirely. The way he did things was, but the concept wasn't. The jumps, however, haven't been done before. They were entirely thought up by the jumpers. This is why I think it's more original.

You were wrong. There was no argument between us, and I wasn't, nor did I have to, defend myself. You just had ZERO clue as to the point of my posts and just jumped in asking me about it
