This week's interview features the user Tony-DarkGrave.
When did you find Newgrounds and why did you join? Why did you choose the username Tony-DarkGrave?
"2003 I tried signing up and it was screwy so said forget it! I joined in 06. Tony Darkgrave is a slight change from an Alias used by one of my favorite VG characters."
Do you think that you changed over the time you were here, as user, or also in real life?
"YES! I blame Newgrounds for turning me into the cold cynical bastard that I am accused of being. I am actually quite nice in real life out of courtesy being given to me, but ask me about my views on the world,it's pretty cynical. I am kind as long as you return it ( golden rule!)."
Are there any other users that you like, and how do they affect you?
Are there any users that you would consider enemies or that you just don't like?
"There are quite a few I dislike but I still enjoying bantering and arguing with them , especially on certain subjects. I won't name names."
What is your opinion about the forums? Is there one forum that you prefer? And is there another forum user that you want to see getting interviewed by me?
"The forums have degraded ever since I joined 05/06, it just got bad in 08. Now I go there just for fun and to argue but the discussion of the userbase has greatly decreased in subject matter and quality. I mostly haunt Politics and Video Games. It's where I post the most."
I guess that you have an opinion about the moderators of Newgrounds. Do you think that they do a great job or not?
"Meh. A few of them are dicks that will ban you for shit reasons, but most of them are cool. I just wish a certain one would stop ruining my fun."
Would you like to become a moderator on Newgrounds? If so, what kind of moderator?
"Probably not due to the fact I would have to do work and deal with people's drama."
You were a member before the redesign 2007. Tell me how you experienced Newgrounds back then and what changes you liked about the redesign.
"I like the old pre-06 design, I like the 07 design too the the level Icons were awesome."
The redesign happened last year. Tell me what you think about it. What do you like and what is not so good?
"I don't like the level icons, make the current ones with the 07 design and it would AWESOME. And make User Icons 90X90."
You are a Newgrounds Supporter. Do you think that it would be a good idea to give supporters acces to more options to customize their userpage or other features?
"I have 2 Supporter Upgrades, from 2012 and 2013. Give us a Supporter Forum, maybe Motion signatures or extra stat points maybe."
I think you are a fan of Marvel Comics. What was the first Marvel Comic that you read and who is your favourite character? What is your opinion on the Marvel movies and which one do you like the most?
"OH SWEET NOSTALGIA! It was way back when I was 9 maybe 10, I went to the local comic book store and I picked out a X men and Weapon X. But now I am into Deadpool, Walking Dead ( I have a HUGE COLLECTION of Walking Dead!), Avengers and Hawkeye."
Recently the 12th Doctor has been revealed, Peter Capaldi will take over the role as main character of the series Doctor Who. Do you like this choice? Which of the past Doctors do you like the most?
"I don't know him, bring back David Tennant! He was the longest running Doctor and he was just awesome. Matt Smith as the Eleventh was kinda bleh as a Doctor, his performance wasn't as good as David Tennant and Tom Baker. Bring Back David Tennant!"
You play video games. If you look at the last 5 years, which video games do you think were the most influential and brought the most positive changes to the video game market?
"I wouldn't be able to say I like to say RPGS. Final Fantasy is the Gold standard in that department. For I would also have to say for developers it would be Square Enix and Bioware and Microsoft bringing out great games."
Bioshock is listed as one of your favourite games. Tell me your thoughts about the first two Bioshock games.
"I used to be into Bioshock but after 2 it was just meh for me."
What is you favorite Video Game Series?
"Final Fantasy, Mass Effect and Devil May Cry. Final Fantasy was my Childhood if you want to know, I own physical copies of ALL FINAL Fantasy's from the PS1 and 2 of all games (I have 1- 13 and all sequels and Compilation of VII). Then there is Mass Effect you get to make your own Badass Shepard then you run around the galaxy determining its fate and making hilarious decisions with Garrus? PRICELESS! I also own all DLC for all the Mass Effect Games. then there is Devil May Cry, Dante the All Mighty Badass!"
Tell me about one game that you were looking forward to but that disappointed you.
"FFXIII. I am not going to elaborate because you can just read my forum posts."
What is the Dumbest thing you've done?
"Hehe well besides speeding? Going over 60 on gravel roads and fish tailing into the ditch. Last winter I nearly froze to death TWICE when I got stuck in the snow ( I live in Minnesota), the winters can be brutal. when I was little I jumped off the dock at the lake and nearly drowned"
Every person has secrets. Can you tell one of yours or something else that we didn't know about you yet?
"You know those songs you listen to in the car when no one is around and its only you, sometimes I put in Green Day."
What can we expect from you in the future, Tony-DarkGrave?
"The same thing as today, don't get your hopes up."
