so, as many of u probably know, adobe flash officially ended back in january, so almost 4 months ago. this resulted in many online games ran by adobe flash ending and not being accessible anymore. so sad!!
WHO ELSE MISSES FLASH GAMES!?

There are ways to play flash games without flash support. I use the Newgrounds flash emulator and download them to my pc. You can still play games on your browser that uses the HTML format and they're just as good. Some are even better. I'd check out Itch.io and maybe even Game Jolt to continue playing games on your browser, but there are some intriguing indie games to download, too.

I have many great memories of flash games! Some folks have posted some of the workarounds that enable continued play..... its not perfect but thankfully it helps. Many games have been converted to HTML5, but it is certainly true that many games have likely been left behind as a result of the retirement of flash.

Ruffle's not quite there yet, doesn't support all the actionscript and stuff like that... but it's getting there :) Flashpoint Infinity is a lifesaver though. I think preservation of this stuff is really important. There's this Youtuber, Nick Robinson, that did a video on this one game 'mission in snowdriftland', that I really like. It's also now available on Flashpoint https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EphH4hwkr2g

OH MY GOD nitrome games can be so personal.. i remember playing them in the moshi monsters flash collection and i was so bad at all of them but i adored the music so i still kept playing them (especially thin ice)
i also remember being on miniclip all the time and i consistently only played like 5 games on there but i loved them all so much. with html5 browser games CAN still be made, so its not like the next gen is gonna completely miss out on those things or that those websites are now gone. but flash games definitely need to be preserved (and i know they are i already have flashpoint downloaded)!!
also i cant @ people on this but replying to tuezday, jmkit ARE working on porting their games over to html5 and some of them are still playable.. but yeah currently most of their games cant be for now, im gonna miss their giant scenemaker for awhile X(. jmkit was a SUUPER big part of my life, i love that site so much
