This three pages Dorkly article says that Flash games exist in a strange world. Anyone can make them. They're not bound by big budgets or proven formulas like their console cousins. Any motivated programmer or 14-year-old kid can make a game and get it featured on Newgrounds if it's good enough. Any time someone has a novel gameplay idea, everyone else wants to put their spin on it. As a result, some weird genres emerged. XBox games come in clear, simple genres like 'sports' and 'shooters,' but Flash genres are more along the lines of 'games where you fling things with your mouse.' These are the most popular game genres
