Adobe are officially ending support for Flash Player at the end of today. That's not such a big deal, but this news made me feel nostalgic for all those NES games I was introduced to on online Flash emulators. I remember playing through a bit of Little Nemo on Bebo via a Flash Player widget and using my keypad to control the game.

For me Flash was all about watching stupid animations on Newgrounds. Youth really is wasted on the young . . .

I remember Newgrounds! With "games" that just let you dress up sports cars. That era was all about slime football though, anyone remember that?

YESSSS! We played it on the computers at school!

And sure, it was cars that I used to dress up . . .

This was me too! Anything that had a 4* rating was getting watched. It had the odd absolute cracker though. Salad Fingers anyone? What about the game starring the elephant, Achievement Unlocked? Good times. Tears in rain etc.

Haven't thought about him in a while! Had him as a Mii on my Wii.

Salad Fingers pops in to my head far too often, Burnt Face Man as well. Did anyone ever watch XiaoXiao? I feel that was a flash animation and for a while it was my absolute favourite thing to the point I spent any free time I had at school drawing Stickman Ninja comics.

YES MATE! I loved Xiaoxiao, I actually went back and watched them all a couple of months back after reminiscing with a pal.

I also used to watch BFM, though I'm hesitant to revisit that . . .
