Lowbrow: Sites I like.

Short and to the point:

[ http://www.newgrounds.com/ ]: probably the first big-name Flash gaming site I'd ever seen. Pretty classy, insofar as the interface is concerned. Good graphic design, good content rating system. A fair amount of regularly-generated everything. The huge quantity of free music is also a plus. The rather large quantity of shit that gets posted is typically dealt with quickly.

[ http://kongregate.com/ ]: I found this one much later than any of the others, but it seems to regularly turn out good, quality content. The community here is mostly friendly, and all of the interface is very clean-cut. The achievements and badges here are quite addictive.

[ http://armorgames.com/ ]: I got linked to this site from both newgrounds and kongregate. They're kinda like a huge development behemoth of a company, but they feel very friendly and turn out top-notch content.

Where do you play your (free) online games?

  4. I thought I was already following you...

    I actually already knew about all 3 of those sites. I've been to several gaming websites of that sort, and those 3 are the only quality ones that I can think of. So I don't use any others. I haven't used Newgrounds for a while, actually.
