1) So..? Your point?

2) Newgrounds isn't more on adult entertainment..it just offers adult entertainment. And if we want to get technical..Newgrounds is actually more for all ages, since it offers games, movies, art, etc for all ages..while AG offers Flash games and must keep in mind its younger audience

Is it just me or is NG's new format more difficult to navigate than before? They opened up the portal to having art and music on a more even tier as the flash games and animations.

As far as the art is concerned as usual the most popular stuff appears to be of inappropriately proportioned girls with their bits hanging out LOL (no surprises there). And the highest rated flash games/movies actually doesn't seem to have changed for the last three years!!! I wonder what the activity level on that place is like these days.

The community on NG is the type of community where you either blindly agree with everything they say or you get killed.

I was there for a week. Never again.

My membership was short there. It lasted 1 hour (Joke! I meant to say my visit to NG was short because of the community)

Posting stuff like this is obviously going to have people saying AG. So just don't bother.

meh I'm getting the impression that not much productive talk is going to happen, unless somebody cares to play Devil's advocate and tell us what the good aspects of NG's community are...?

NewGrounds has superior programming and art sections. In terms of organization and activity they win (not sure about quality, can't be bothered browsing through each section). How they have the art forums set up is:
Animation
Art
Audio
Writing
Collaboration

and programming:
Flash
Programming
Games factory
Mobile

And the highest rated flash games/movies actually doesn't seem to have changed for the last three years!!! I wonder what the activity level on that place is like these days.

Activity looks fine, I browsed through their games / movies / audio / art pages and a lot of stuff gets submitted each day. You just have to edit the search options to see it.

As for the highest rated, that's probably because they've been around longer and since they were popular back then it'd keep adding up over time, making it very difficult for new submissions to get near them. For example, Shell Shock Live. On ArmorGames it has ~8 million plays and a 9.3/10 rating. You can't expect many many submissions to get anywhere near that. It'd have to be a hell of a good game to come close.
