New Adobe website is advertising flash for making games as "better, faster and for more people". Perhaps to counter the increasing popularity of HTML5?

I do hope flash's dominance crashes in flames, to give the middle finger at Adobe's golden sand castle empire... You can't argue though, that it is profitable to do games in flash currently.PixelPalette2012-03-06 23:28:55

I'm so happy @ashley create construct for the rest of us.
My brain is no ready to understand this procedure with AS.

But I like Flash as vector drawing tool.

Flash is really good if you want your game to have lots of animations and also vector graphics. Flash has a good selling point because of the animating features

You still need to give credits to where it's due :)
Flash is fast, has lots of effects, and can access hardware devices without breaking the security models. And furthermore, they got audio right ! (For the moment, no browser vendor knows how to do that...)
Furthermore, as I discussed with lucid on IRC, I really Flash (from the 8 or 9 build) as a vector editor (even with no animation). Inkscape is of no use on Mac, and for the others, the tools/shortcuts/workflow is counter-intuitive...

Remember Adobe have already announced they're stopping development of Flash for mobile, so HTML5 is probably better in the long term for mobile gaming.
