What was the best and worst intro/demo in 2002?

category: general [glöplog]
Here is what i think:

Best demo: (I can`t decide who`s best so here are the nominees :))

- Edge of Forever by ASD: A very good demo when it comes to transitions between effects. Some very good effects in it. The music wasn`t the best, but ok.

-Halla by Moppi: A story-based demo with speech. I liked the speech :) And that bathtub scene is just too cool :) Cool atmosphere.

-Thermo Plastique by Inferiors: This demo has a perfect demostyle i think. Good effects, and good motion. Keep doing that style Inferiors.

Worst demo:

-Chimera by Halcyon: No comment :)

Best intro (Can`t decide here either)

-Poem to a horse by Farbraush: Great looking generated 3d objects.

-Squish by AND: A powerful and speedy intro that looks great.

-Westside Twiddly by Aardbei: A beatiful and stylish intro.

Worst intro:

I have no idea.

Best demo(s):

- Deepness in the sky by MFX : How come someone make interesting demo by using one scene! Effects are just so cool

- Variform by Kewlers : Don't know.. effects are so nice and music fits the demo.

Worst demo:

- _ by $ : Buhaha, I almost cried when I had watched this and saw the comments of it. I'd really rather watch random pixels that this kind of shit.

Best intro(s):

- FR-intros : Althought they all looks quite same, they are very good by size, effects, design and music.

- We were at Dreamhack by Razor1911 : Yeah, I know those effects are very old and kind of ripped but... It's incredible to see how can they made the intro so speedy and fascinating. Music is good as hell!

Worst intro:

- There's not many bad quality intros, but I didn't like Neurosis Network by tAAt : Seems that many ppl votes for author, not for product (music is nice but the effects are not very professional)

best demos: Variform by Kewlers and A Deepness in the Sky by MFX.

best intros: fr-019 by Farbrausch and Planet Potion by Potion

worst demo: I would say Chimera, but that's crapola 'art', not a demo. Probably Channel 5 Sequence by Haujobb, for ruining that wonderful Radix tune for me.

worst intro: Squash by AND.

Although the S!P Xbox Cracktro deserves an honorable mention.

Best demos: Liquid Wen, Halla, Variform, Planet Loop, Daydreamer, Little Nell, Heavy Traffic, Biba 2
Best intros: FR-019, Westside Twiddly, Mother Mother Fukwit Daddy, Salmiakki, Planet Potion, Industrial Light & Magic, Blursux

Worst demos: Anything by odd, minimalanimal, wasniach, or any other lamer group who got their kicks by annoying people. Oh, and the TP02 entries.

All in all, 2002 was a mixed year.. lots of quality demos/intros, but also lots of lame joke releases. Guess there has to be a balance. :)
