Looking for Free Web Game IDE

Looking for a free development environment package for creating simple games that run from the browser through widely used plug-ins. Basically I need something like Visual Basic that compiles a Java Applet or Flash game or ActiveX. I am pretty good with coding simple games in Visual Basic and C but I don't have much time to get into the nitty-gritty of it with the interface.

Looking for Myth-style combat strategy game without tedious economic/resource development

Shopping for Windows games -- where to start?

Windows game recommendations for myself? I know there are lots of game review sites out there, but tons of games go into their meat grinder and they go on the assumption that you already know what you want. Is there a poll or "favorites" list that I can use as a springboard for finding popular games? I tried Googling this and keep finding nothing but 1994-era lists. [more inside]

Whats a brand of keyboard that allow multiple keys to be pressed?

Whats a good keyboard that for gaming and frets on fire? I just found out my favorite microsoft natural doesnt support more than 2 keys being pressed (f1-f5) for FoF. I'm using a dell that allows 3. Is it a USB convertor? Are there better brands? I'm suspecting that some of the FPS games I thought where lag issues might have been just keyboard key press issues as I sometimes hold down shift. I never even thought of this as a problem for gaming.

Wooosh!

I used to play an old DOS game in which you had to manuever a paper airplane through a house, with each room being a different level, each of which got progressively harder through the addition of obstacles. The plane, if I recall correctly, had a fixed rate of descent and could only rise by moving over a fan/vent. If you touched anything you died. It was an awesome combination of puzzle/action. Bonus points if you tell me how I can play it on a modern WinXP box.
