You ought to have a feature that allows the community to rate their favorites. Perhaps have a persistent list of completed flixel titles for the community to peruse.

I could build something pretty quick to do this; here's my thought:

Make a subreddit like 'reddit.com/r/flixelGames' that's moderated & is just for submitting games made with flixel. Then I could write some javascript for you that loads the RSS feed from that subreddit (the current 'top' submissions) and formats it into HTML & inserts it somewhere on your page.  It would be pretty simple javascript really!

If you're interested, I'll whip up a demo :)

I'd like to reccomend FlxAdventure, because it kind of shows some of the  more unknown features of Flixel... although people seem put off by the lack of sound...

Not to toot my own horn ;) lol

Yeah it requires login to submit links or vote on them.  A login-free version could be a small webapp where only you or some other community representative could add new links, but anyone could vote up/down.  I'd be happy to build that too (I'm a web developer by day so this kinda stuff is pretty in reach for me ;)) if it sounds better to you.

There are some auxiliary advantages to the reddit-based solution: additional exposure through that channel (every time I post one of my games on reddit I get at least 400 hits originating there, and in one case I got 60k hits from a reddit post in one day) & also no future maintenance of the server-side component.

Or hey maybe a small column with the latest/hottest stuff from the 'flixelgames' reddit, and then a separate column/region with your handpicked selections?

Also here are my favorite flixel games, other than the ones already mentioned :)

where we remain - http://twofoldsecret.com/our-games/where-we-remain/
a pajarito's life - http://www.swfcabin.com/open/1263477448 (is there a more permanent link for this one?)

I kinda like Coin Hunt. But I might be biased.

Oh and don't forget this one when it gets finished.

I'm finishing up a game right now that I hope to add to this list within the next week or so! ;)

By the way, this is a good place to look for new flixel games:

I have compiled my favourites from forums here: http://www.bartsnews.net/2010/02/flixel-fun.html. I have not seen all Flixel fingies, though, but these caught my attention and I liked them.
