    RE: Linux users not playing Flash games?
    Abobe is not supporting the linux version of the player since the last update (12.2.xxx). Why? Because is adobe and not macromedia any more. Also keep in mind that flash player is not shockwave and shockwave with linux is NO GO. So if you wanna have linux users you must verify that the required version of the flash player is least the last supported flash player.check adobe's web site. More than that some flash game developers are pushing the video cards so hard (just because they have a good one) by using high FPS (frames per second) and they don't grasp the concept of data streaming nor the graphics optimization and most linux users are using old mashines and those mashines they are not very compelling... configurational speaking. Other than that you must be at least intermediate linux user to setup and configure the flash player correct depending your linux "flavour". So if you determinate to support linux users you should host some articles or links where described the update procedures of their player (usually is not one click). So good luck and have my appreciation for supporting the linux community in any way you can.
