What the hell is wrong with Flash?

Topic title. Why has it become so intensive? Why are even OLD flash games becoming impossible to run at anything but 5 fps?
I went back to Newgrounds to play an ancient Flash game I used to like, one that, mind you, my old as crap HP prepacked toaster could run perfectly, and it barely ran at all. What has happened? What are the people at Adobe doing to make it so unoptomized that it ruins OLD Flash games?

Is there some setting I'm missing?

For a second there I thought you were either talking about the summoner spell in LoL or the korean SC2 player.

flash just keeps getting worse, the newest update has crashed on me about 30 times in a week so far...

flash used to run fine on my old imac from 1999 or my old dell from 2002, now my 2009 quad core laptop with a 4650 graphics card struggle to run flash, despite it running just fine when i bought it...
