You are wandering around the Tavern. Suddenly, out of nowhere a thread catches your eye. You go to the thread wanting to know more.

So we all know that you like AG. But why did you choose AG? Why not another gaming site like Kong or NewGrounds? Please please do not just say because AG is better. We know that you believe AG is better or chances are you would not be on here. Is it the community that you love or maybe the games AG puts out? Whatever the reason just give one!

Kong seemed too crowded and I couldn't figure out Newgrounds (and it was also crowded). This place seemed like it had a better-sized community than those two, as well as a lot of other gaming sites that have hardly any visitors.

It's also fun to have lots of quests in each quest game rather than just one or two like on Kongregate.

Kong is too unorganized for me. And the layout for AG is more visually appealing. I was a member of Newgrounds for a while, but fell off from there because I didn't do anything. I like AG's active community who are generally nicer and more open to new people. Granted, I used to be a weird social train wreck when I first came here.

I got into AG because of Exit Path (a player asked me to create an account), before that I'd play games on a bunch of random sites, but this was the first where I had an account. The community usually has an ideal level of activity, not too much or too little, just enough where I can keep up with threads and not be confused. I use Kong too, but mainly to private message a friend. Their games are fun and I enjoy the badges, but I'd rather use AG as my primary gaming site. I occasionally use their forums too, but the activity level is too high for me to keep up with.

Hmmmm, was a while ago, i searched for a specific game and google shows me some results. Im not one of these "click on the first hit"-ones, i look a lil bit on the findings and the name ArmorGames sounds nice.
Later i take a look on other sites too, but i like the layout/style. AG is... lets say smoother than some other sites, there a couple of "attention *****s" out there^^

Why not another gaming site like Kong or NewGrounds?


1) I like the layout of the games better here.
2) I've been here longer.
3) I like the forum layout better.
4) I've never looked at NewGrounds' forums, but Kong's really aren't much different.

Same here. My brother showed me it. But, I noticed some people were talking about Kong and I was like hey I should see what that's like. So I did and it seemed like everything was bunched up together. Especially the community. It was so confusing and so much more different. I guess I will check out NewGrounds.

Because it was the first site I ran across when playing flash games, which was a looong time ago, and I didn't know there were other sites back then. After using this site to play games for 2 or so years, I didn't want to switch sites becuase I was so used to this site.

Well because of the forums of course!I found out about AG when I saw that almost every game on some websites are from Ag.I decided to visit the website and I liked it that's why.

Good initiative daleks! Respect! I will add my two cents in here as well... =)

Before joining, I played a lot of free online games for almost a year on a lot of different websites; BubbleBox, Kongregate, MiniClip, NewGrounds, AddictingGames and (of course) ArmorGames!

But what annoyed me the most about all those online gaming websites were their 'noisy webpage designs' with tons of advertisements behind every image, link, page, younameit! ArmorGames did not only turn up as the #1 link for many searches (great Google coverage!), it also had a nice, steady and easy page design. My eyes couldn't believe it! Woot! d(O_O)b

My ultimate reason to join the website was to rate the game "The Last Stand" (the very first game), which deserved a 10/10 rating for being awesome! And so, after I finished making my account and rating the game, I started exploring the website a little and found the (back then) thriving community, which grabbed me and never let go!!

I never left! =)

I got here following a link from a game I played on agame.com, it could have been Stormwinds, but I'm not sure. Some time has passed, and now that I've played the hell out of Sinjid already, the forums are the only thing that keep me coming back. Not the tavern, though...

Because, well, yes, exit path, and when I joined I think John still worked for AG then and I really like his games.
Also, a big part of the reason I came here first instead of Kong: I just don't like their logo. Around the time I joined, [a month or three before] one of my friends had stepped in a fireant nest and her feet looked terrifying. No ants. And Kong is crowded.

I followed a link here from Miniclip in 2006, maybe 2005. AG1.0 had a very good update stream of flash games, and I had no knowledge of Newgrounds until roughly 2008, Kongregate until 2010.

Here is my backstory.

I got into flash gaming a long time ago. In school, kids would play games on miniclip. That was probably my first encounter with flash gaming (back when it was sort of a new thing). I eventually found Stick RPG and then Motherlaod on Xgenstudios and spent a lot of time with those games, eventually playing other games on the site.

I started to notice that a lot of games hosted on Xgenstudios would come from Armor Games. Most of these games had content that you could only use if you played on Armor Games, so it made more sense to come over here and play those games. I liked the forums better here too.

I played games on Armor Games for a while without an account, but then came Arcuz. I can't remember if I needed the account to create a save file, but I also wanted to ask a question about Arcuz on the forums. That is when I got an account.

This is how I got started here. The site hosts a lot of quality games, users are more friendly, I like the layout, and such. This is why I prefer Armor Games also, I feel like they host more and better games and have more exclusives as well as I enjoy the forums.
