Why won't my tablet play Flash based games online?

Episode 1452 (25:43)

Ed from Huntington Beach, CA
Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet

Ed's wife bought an Amazon Fire tablet for about $150, but it won't play any of the games that she likes. Leo says that's because the games that she uses require Flash, and Flash is dying as a format. It will work on a Surface tablet because that's a full Windows computer. Adobe doesn't even support Flash anymore. Leo advises looking for something similar as an app instead.
