    Looks to me like HTML5 is a big, humongous fail. There are absolutely no good HTML5 games out on the web that can run in Safari. Flash is king for web gaming and whether you like to admit it or not, there is no way that HTML5 can provide what is needed for web browser gaming since every HTML5 game I've seen for the iPhone has crap graphics and pegs your CPU like a pimp.

    1. Your a known troll.

    2. The main way of getting games on iPhone is from the AppStore, there you can find 50000+ iOS games.

    3. HTML5 is a relatively new standard and not designed for games but for video and for video it work like a charm.

    I have no idea why im responding to your troll thread but anyways. Dont you have anything better to do then troll? How many friends to you have? 1? 2?

    1. The only trolls are those that come into my threads and call me a troll.

    2. And what's wrong with web gaming?

    3. HTML5 has been a "new standard" for years and still hasn't delivered. It makes Duke Nukem Forever look punctual. And just what do you think the canvas tags and all those animation functionalities are for?

    1. Erm no, your starting pointless discussion in the forums on an almost daily basis, therefore that makes you a troll.

    2. There is nothing wrong with web gaming, but as the last poster and myself have said the main way of getting games on an iPhone is to use the app store, virtually no one would want to game in safari.

    3. No HTML5 only really took of last year and it has spread across the web incredibly fast. Also your quite uneducated on the issue all those animation functionality in HTML5 are for making elements on websites interactive and for giving webpages animation functionality for going through menus, photo galleries etc. NOT for games (I am a webdesigner which writes all my work by hand, the old fashioned way, so I know this).

    I end this conversation now because everything I have said is fact and can not be argued against.

    The only failure in HTML5 is how the press have reported it.

    Apple created the App store and you'll find better games in there.

    Whats HTML5? Oh yeah thats something Jobs said Apple will use instead of Flash!!!!

    The OP is right, Flash is King and because of Job's arrogance Apple users are missing out.

    You speak the truth and the Zealous fanboys here can't handle it, hence referring you to as a troll.

    There is virtually is no HTML5 content on the web and all we got on our iOS devices is a Lego block, way to go Jobs!!! :rolleyes:

    Every web page on the web is HTML.

    We are talking about HTML5 get your terms right dude. The fact that you can't get the terms right is an example that you are completly unqualified to talk about this issue and you have absolutely no idea, you think what you want to think.

    And every site I visit has HTML5 for their video and if I play a game I go to the AppStore like all the other millions of iPad users.

    Not really. Macingman made a typo, but that doesn't change the fact that JD914's statement is still completely wrong.

    Google Pac-Man. :D

    But yeah, Flash gaming is pointless with the App Store. Who would want to play Flash games when it would drain your phone's battery? Plus, it would be difficult to handle things like button controls and mouseovers.

    I think it's plainly obvious that Apple has no real interest in HTML5. They make heaps of money from apps, whereas they get zero from HTML5 games. By preventing flash from their devices they cut out the only serious competitor to the app store and has HTML5 to fall back on for video delivery.

    Incorrect, Apple has HUGE interest in HTML5 they are the main company which is really backing it and pushing it to become a widely used web standerd, without HTML5 it will be impossible to watch videos in mobile Safari.

    Apple is depending on HTML5 to make their mobile Safari really "work" for iPad/iPhone/any other iOS device users.

    They have an interest in HTML5 for video because it doesn't use flash. For games they want devs to develop games as native apps, they don't care for HTML5 games much as they don't make any money from them.

    So, by cutting out flash (that can deliver both games and video) they "force" devs (as canvas sucks on iOS) to develop native apps for games and use HTML5 for video.

    So when I said they have no interest in HTML5, I mean they only have an interest in that it's not flash.

    Nope.

    iOS can play Video files without HTML5 (using QuickTime), it just does it in a more open way using HTML5.

    Apple has limited support for a lot of parts of HTML5 that make it possible to make web apps that work similarly to native apps.
