I used to all the time, but these days if I try to play anything when I have more than one tab up (which is all the time) it either runs really slowly or just makes Flash crash on me. One of my favorite sites to visit was Miniclip.com. There were plenty of fun games to keep me entertained for hours.

This actually. I like playing games that were developed with time, money and love.

The Mac computers are PCs. PC stands for Personal computer. Is it your computer? If yes, it is your PC.

yes. i stop by newgrounds every now and then to see what's new. i'll try a few here and there if they seem interesting. i like tower defense, launch types, and level up types, primarily.

Yes, as it's something to do while Steam is downloading or I can't be bothered with a larger more complex game.

Besides they're free.

Yeah, sometimes. I'm usually on Newgrounds and I save all the games I find addictive or clever into my favourites.

I loved Canary, Kingdom Rush, Adventure Story and Amorphous. They're the ones I keep coming back to anyway.

That's harsh. A lot of them have definitely had a lot of time and love thrown into them. As for the money, you could say "time is money", as in you play it for free because they just want to entertain.

However, I will say a lot of them can be really poorly designed.

I used to back when I worked graveyards and had a job I didn't really care about.

Now, the only 'flash' game I play is Avengers Alliance on facebook. I don't think it's the type of game OP had in mind but it's pretty much the closest.

Not enough to have an opinion of them in general or between genres. I have played a few, but only sporadically and I tend not to come back to them.

Last flash game I played was Last stand: Union city I believe and I enjoyed it, that was a couple months ago.

I used to play a lot of flash games a few years ago, before League of Legends came along. :3
Yeah, the Last Stand games are pretty good.

If you have time, Epic Battle Fantasy.

I remember I played heck out of EBF3. 4th one got released but I haven't had time lately.
Got any advice for dealing with the Red Hydra? Every time I get it down to one head it kills the entire party.
Sorry, I got nothing. I haven't played 4th and I remember very little about 3rd.

I have a healthy amount of games both on Steam and on my consoles but I still have a pretty hefty bookmark folder full of those wonderful bite-sized gems.

Castaway, Hands of War, the Arkandian games, Necronator + Infectonator games, all of Nerdooks stuff.

And I really love the food simulation ones. IDGAF how silly and casual they are, they are FUN ADDICTIVE.

The ones i really liked were Mud and Blood 2 and Gemcraft.
Mud and Blood 2 can be frustrating though due to it's really random nature.
Besides that i don't really play flash games, i skim through Kongregate from time to time, but it's been a long time since something actually grabbed my attention.

Recently I played Sinjid, from the creator of Sonny 2, which was a brilliant turn based RPG. I played Raze 2 two years ago, man was I hyped for that game, it turned out to be OK, now if it worked properly with Opera. I've also played Plazma Burst, Chibi Knight and quite a few more, I used to have a PC that's shittier than this lap top.

So you don't give them a chance because they have no real, or obvious budgeting behind them?
Because that's what I'm getting from these posts. Every project requires time, every art medium requires love, dedication is put to the test even more when there's no financial benefit whatsoever. You're missing out, but then again, the scene is between mobile and indie, but the rare gems are still there.

I used to play them a lot on Kongregate, but not so much anymore. Virtually all of them are rehashes or blatant copies of flash games I've already played.

Which is what sucks about most android games too. Everything's a knockoff of a knockoff.

I play them from time to time, yes. In fact, I have played a few hundred of them in total, but only in spurts. Say, i wouldn1t even think about playing flash-games for a year or so, and then I would play about fifty different ones in the span of a week, whenever I have a little free-time.

Or, alternatively, when they are simpler games that require less concentration, I like to mess around with them while I listen to podcasts. It's fun. :p

I don't as often as I used to. When Newgrounds first came out with the Medal's system I tried to keep up with them by getting all the medals but I slowly fell behind. I had a relatively high score for a while.

Biggest accomplishment was beating Ching Chong Beautiful on the hardest gamemode. Great game btw.

I personally prefer Armor Games (I find their site more pleasing to the eye and more intuitively structured), but I can still second the complaint about the knockoffs. Launchers, building-destructors, 2D arcade shooters, tower-defense games and it's reverse take up 80% of all decent flash games, and one can only take so much of them before getting bored with it.

It's alright, I managed to beat the hydra today anyway.
Oh god that fight was difficult as all hell on epic mode... But then, the final boss was just as difficult if not moreso.
