Top 5 Flash Game Sites

Photo by Jordan Atkins

The accessibility and versatility of Flash software has opened up a whole vibrant and unpredictable world of back-to-basics gaming for internet users around the world over the past fifteen years or so. It’s been the bane of many a school teacher’s life, the cherished distraction of countless office workers and a bringer of fun to the computer screens of Planet Earth. God bless flash games!

With literally thousands of Flash gaming sites out there to choose from, it’s easy to let some of the finest, most inventive and enjoyable Flash games out there pass you by. We’ve compiled a top 5 list of our favourite Flash gaming sites to help point you in the direction of the best gaming.

5. Kongregate – This site has only just risen to prominence, but a recent multi-million dollar investment has undoubtedly helped Kongregate to make a serious splash in the flash gaming world. Kongregate is extremely adult gamer friendly and rooted in geek culture, with a side line in card games, including the excellent Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM.

4. Shockwave – Sometimes, the oldest (or should we say, most experienced) sites can be amongst the best. Shockwave’s sleek and sober aesthetic belies the fact that there are plenty of fun games to play here, though we’d advise players looking for something a little more niche or edgy to look elsewhere.

3. Gaming Club – For adult flash gamers, nothing beats the fun to be found in the world of online casinos, where players generally have the option to play either for free or for cash. Gaming Club online casino is a prime example of this kind of site, offering video poker, slots, blackjack and table games in myriad varieties. Take a spin and you’ll soon see why these sites are gobbling into the traditional gaming market at a rate of knots.

2. MiniClip – we don’t know about you, but this site takes us right back to our very first dalliances with internet gaming! Founded in the year 2000, MiniClip is the classic Flash gaming site and is one of the most popular websites on the internet – not just one of the most popular Flash gaming sites, but one of the most visited of them all.

1. NewGrounds – This site may not be quite as popular as MiniClip, but it exudes a whole counter-culture appeal of its own. With sections for bizarre flash animations and risqué adult games, this is the gritty and alternative side to Flash gaming, and that’s exactly how we love it.
