    I just went to check out some internet games and all the sites I goto its says they don't have any games compadable with my device.

    is it really my phone or the browser I'm using?

    You'll have to give some more details about your situation.

    Remember that the typical online games you might play on a desktop or laptop computer are Flash based, and Flash support on Android was discontinued a while ago.

    Generally, you can get games from Google Play or other app stores, but these are apps that run naively on the device (ie. not through a browser). There are probably some web games that would work on a mobile device, but it really depends on what website you were trying to use.

    Adobe Flash Player is so out of date it needs to be replaced ASAP and folks need to stop fawning over it. on a tablet it was slow, and graphics quality poor. however, if you so desire to play those little flash-based games ala Facebook, there is a free solution in Google Play known as 'Photon' it is a web browser that even supports Flash in Jelly Bean, albeit as i stated on a tablet is seriously laggy, and the graphics are nowhere near the quality of a laptop computer, and controls are a bit glitchy, which is probably why it was discontinued. good riddance to bad programming, i say, Flash needs to be where Java has been for ages. other games such as Candy Crush Saga have superior app-based versions in Google Play as well.

    you can install flash if you like. there are plenty of flash apk's floating around the net, just google it. download the apk and then use a file manager like astro or es file anager and install the apk and you will have flash.
