LXer: Why I Can't Use Flash for Game Development

Published at LXer:

People everywhere love Flash. It has become the Webís de facto standard for all manner of interfaces. From simple menus to full-blown games, you can bet that Flash is there. It has been called one of the best prototyping tools available, and game designers love it because they donít need to be computer science graduates to use it. Most people browsing the web today have a Flash plugin installed, making it a fairly ubiquitous platform. With all of these things going for it, why wonít I use it? Because if I canít even watch YouTube videos without it crashing Firefox on my Ubuntu system, then it canít be that ubiquitous.
