Flash mostly needs to die because it's an inneficient resource hog with a very temperamental mood. It despises full screen, tends to die horribly at the thought of alt+tab and regardless of machine specs, it can slow to an absolute crawl or have texture flickering in too many situations for me be comfortable with it.

It's a personal bias and a pet hatred, to be sure. But I've never ever had good experiences with flash games :/

Flash works better in fullscreen on youtube than the experimental html5 player does, though.

Binding of Isaac was another awesome flash game.

Though supposedly it's getting a remake as a non-flash game sometime next year.

I was referring to standalone games coded in flash, not simple video playback.

Yeh, that's one of the games I'm referring to. Awesome game. Absolute trash engine.

I've had some amazing fun with Flash games in my time.

There's no love lost between me and the engine itself though.

This we can agree on. One of my favourite games of all times is actually Pandemic II. DAMN YOU MADAGASKAR!

I don't think Greenlight is intended to be anything approaching a democratic or automated filtration system. It strikes me as pretty much a transition from all submissions going straight to Valve - through the mountainous pile of which they must then wade in order to find 'Steam-quality' games - to them first being posted on Greenlight for some community feedback. Valve will retain final say and need not pay any more attention to popularity of any one given submission than they deem is appropriate on a case-by-case. Essentially, it would seem to me, they've simply added a layer to try to help them deal with the deluge.

It's not dissimilar, in fact, from the way Arcen operates with adding new features to their games. Personally, I think Greenlight - done properly - can only be a good thing.
Yea, I think it would be good for us, though our existing relationship may bypass the need, we'll see.

In general I think greenlight is just their way of "sorting" submissions for their consideration.  Basically when they have time to evaluate more submissions, they'll start at the top of the pile and work their way down.  Not quite that simplistic, of course, but I imagine that would be very helpful to them.

But I imagine the actual evaluation would be much the same as it has been, just with "better" (for some definition) prioritization.
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games? Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!
