Flash is gonna die for good in a few days (dec 31st) so I felt this is a good time to ask this question. (Although obviously, there have been large efforts to preserve these when the developers did not. And even then, HTML5 means browser games will continue to exist, even though mobile games have mostly replaced browser games anyway.)
Mine personally were (taking away some of the more well-known ones):
Basically a game of celestial golfball. Had a level editor, which was quite fun.
Bonk.io (although this one has a sequel that's not in flash)
Pretty popular for a flash game made in 2016. Basically a game where balls need to "bonk" eachother out of the playing field.
Effing meteors (Definitely one of the games that I probably remember being better than it is.)
Basically a game where you clump up small meteors into bigger meteors to destroy stuff.
A game where a rabbit and frog are fused together and need to bounce like a pogo to the end.
A mountain climbing platforming game.
A game where you need to eat sushis quickly. Also has cutscenes.
An aesthetic racing game? Not entirely sure.
A game where you drill through the planet enough times to move to the next level (man, I had some weird gameplay preferences.)
A game where you need to time your descents to pick up speed in the hills and fly.
An 8 bit game where you as a dinosaur need to outrun extinction.
A power-up racing game I remember playing quite a bit. Definitely designed for children, even if that's not very surprising.17 votes

Over the years, I've often wondered about these games I used to spend so much time with, what their developers got involved in later and expected to eventually discover a developer who got started making a flash games that I used to enjoy.
Tonight, I was curious enough to revisit this game and decided to dig a little bit in order to learn about the developer's current work. I found his website linked on his newgrounds profile. The site references the game and a bunch of other services - it looks like a time capsule. Googling the name on that blog, I discovered that he passed away in 2011.
RIP Gaby, I wish I could have seen what you might have done.6 votes
