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.

I got into AG because of Exit Path
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.

It was one of my favorite old gaming websites, along with Miniclip and CrazyMonkeyGames. It wasn't until later that I realized how much fun Forum Games are. I haven't seen a site that combines both games and forums as well as AG (haven't really researched Kong, but I do have a Newgrounds account and it's not as much fun as I'd hoped), so I'm here. I do use Roleplayer Guild for more advanced RPs, but Armor Games is overall more comfortable. It's like going to a gaming competition, then coming home and just chilling out with friends and an Xbox. Much more fun just chilling out with friends and less stressful.

Also, the Mods and Admins here are very personable and available.

Plus, you can become an AG Moderator. How cool is that?

Although, Roleplayer Guild lets you edit posts. I really wish Armor Games had that option. I mess up one detail in my RPG and I have to fix it with a new post specifically for one person. Then you make a typo and everyone lols.

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! =)

Haha at the bottom of that page in the Popular Media section. "Bunnykill" was crazy.

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...
