Default SWF Games

OK here's the deal. I've looked through a few online game sites for a decent game or 2 and I've found crap. I have found a ton of old games like pacman and asteroids and such but nothing new, just old ideas redone and most have terrible graphics to.

I'm basically asking for links to fun high quality SWF games that aren't just redone classic games.

eh, browse /f/ every so often. Sometimes a decent game (tagged [G]) is uploaded there.

This game is suprisingly decent. I stumbled onto it a few weeks ago and ended up playing for longer than I meant to, so it's gotta be at least decent. :P

I was looking for something with more and better graphics with more movement control besides choosing an action and have it happen automatically. Good try though.

not really.

More modern. Like slash and crash if you've ever played that over at myspace games and I've kind of overplayed it but it's a great game for a limited level demo.

Gathering together the games I mentioned in a couple of posts in the "Shawn's funny link repository" thread:

Portal, the Flash Version
Exactly what it sounds like- a 2D version of the game Portal, where you have to clevely figure out how to use your dimensional-rift-making gun to help you escape each level.

fl0w
A simple concept executed extremely well with a very serene atmosphere. You're a microorganism. Become a bigger one by gobbling othe microorganisms. The way that the game shows blurred things moving around in the background (which is actually the next playble level, where you'll face of against tougher organisms) is effective at reminding one of looking at a microscope slide.

The Institution - Psychiatry for Abused Cuddly Toys
This is a wierd but amusing game I found where you're a psychologist for traumatized stuffed animals. Some of the animations, especially the dream sequences and the hallucinations, are pretty funny. So far I've solved the sheep, the turtle, and the alligator. Tip: If you mess things up and the patient goes catatonic or something, click under the bed to bring out the electroshock machine to to, um, reset him. =P

Closure
This is a platform puzzle type game but with a very unusual twist and a creepy atmosphere. Some of the puzzles get pretty tricky.
I got to the level where "WE'RE TRYING TO HELP" is written on the wall before quitting. (I was a few seconds from completing that level when I messed something up, and I didn't feel like playing though the level all over again.)
edit: Went back and finished it. Really clever and original game.
