comment What revenue models exist for online games?
true (not a direct source of revenue). BUT it is so important to so many portals that it is what makes the site (generates the eyeballs to pay the bills). I saw sites grow from nothing to 100,000 visitors a day, it makes a HUGE difference, and their main source of generating traffic was giving away games for free on other portals.

Here is another one. A lot of sites use 'flash games' as loss leaders to help drive traffic to their site. The now ubiqtious 'More Games' tag. Trying to get it posted on many PORTAL sites for free. Essentially a form of link back for a game.
