I'm not really understanding why this flash is rated so high. The animation is dece, I applaud that and the sound as well. Somewhat generic writing of music but better than I could do with a piano.
But as far as the story goes? Highly cliched, pretentious, sappy, whatever. I felt no sort of emotion really after watching short of "wat". It's by no meas terrible, there's no doubt that you have a grasp of drama, but I don't believe it deserves such a high rating. Maybe the folk of newgrounds have little experience in drama. Or maybe it's just because drama is scarce on the site. Maybe I just suck or something.
When I say pretentious, I'm singling out little things that bothered me. Like the title. :the Composer:, huh. I would have added spaces between the letters for extra added effect. and maybe some tilda on the outside as well.

...but of course, then you'd have a smiley face and it would appear rather silly. Mood killer deluxe hour with twelve hours of extended bonus footage and director's cut deleted scenes.
Also, why was the main character crying so much? I understand the divorce, but after that it made little sense. Is he overly sensitive? There's meds for that. Also, the little snap at metal seemed uncalled for. Say what you want about that part in defense, it just seemed...biased? Metal can be beautiful, God knows metal bands have had lyrical content more inspiring than this piece.
"Dogs only hear us now". Look it up. The song is "ad a dgdlmut"
Bah, maybe I'm just desensitized. Like I said, I enjoyed the fluid animation and music, I just facepalm'd a few times.
Pardon my rambling. Anyway it was dece (again). When I think of original, enthralling and inspired I think of There Will Be Blood or Punch Drunk Love. Then again they ain't flashes. Keep up the dece work, strive for a more unique story if you want my sincere advice. Hell, I don't have a top rated flash though, now do I?
It was okay.
Like some were saying, a lot of this seemed like egoraptor's style of humor, which is fine. There's no copyright or anything, it was just a little overdone.
The Mario Party skit as alright, and the Pokemon 5th Gen skit was hilarious for some reason. I saw the joke coming a mile away, I guess it was just the way it was pronounced.
Other than that it seemed like bad jokes and softcore furry porn. Which it was.
The overall animation was decent, at least.
This is EXTREMELY well done.
My computer runs it at 5 fps.
You kids and your detail...
Excellent work, sir.
I read the instructions.
I'm going outside now.
Never played a flash game so addicting. Seriously, other than the impossible quiz, this is the longest amount of time I've spent on a game (About 1.5 hours). Everything about this game is amazing.
Anyone who says it's too hard or too buggy is an idiot, the only serious bug I ran into was at level 32 (you can fall through the wall next the the energy ball thing and appear in the room adjacent to it, including turrets), which still didn't stop me from beating the game.
Was difficult at some points, but never got frustrated, really. The game is too good to get frustrated with. 10/10.
Fix yout flash
Need do fix your portal
I found the problem, it should work now
Damn, you actually have some talent. I noticed the little sweep you threw in there, nice touch.
It sounded like you were picking a little more than needed, but then again I counldn't really tell. That's my only critisizm, and it doesn't even account for much.
Overall, good job. I find myself shredding a lot also. :D
Sounds like...a weird ska-ish version of Green Day.
And the chorus flange was an annoying effect.
So it was meh.
