The Story of Armor Games

GamePro: The history of Flash-game website Armor Games, which both hosts and develops some of the biggest browser-based titles around.

"Browser games, sometimes referred to as 'Flash games,' are easy to access. There's no install required. They're widely available, with hundreds of websites stabling thousands of games. The price for accessing most of these titles? A highly attractive zero dollars."

Our lives changed when the mainstream latched onto the Internet, and it changed again when broadband access replaced dial-up in the workplace. Suddenly, text and images loaded in a blink. Improved streaming technology even let us tinker with games in between waiting for the paperwork or phone call that would fire up their corner of the corporate machine once again. (Armor Games, PC)
