Flash/GameMaker Debate

Flag Post

Probably the most famouse programs for making free games are Flash and GameMaker.(Although I know some who make their income from these two) Now of course they both have their strong and weak points and I submitted a thread similar to this one on a gamemaker oriented website so I decided to do the same thing on a flash one to see everyone’s views. I would like to see some people’s opinions before I start giving my own however.

GameMaker makes games.

Flash Games are Flash Games. There are also Flash Websites, Flash animations… etc etc.

Flash is more versatile, hence you need to pay for it.

Rhetorical. Also, he means USE Flash, ‘open flash’ is just an (..err) analogy (?) to say “No one here knows how to use Flash”

And those…are MY two cents.
