It’s just that for those websites, it has to be activated for those games and programs to run. Also Read - WhatsApp Web to get Dark Mode soon: Here is how to enable it right now
Flash used to support some neat games and programs back in its hayday.

Steps to activate Flash for Google Chrome
Step 1. Run Google Chrome and go to the website that has the program or game which requires Adobe Flash to run. This should prompt you to activate it. It will also provide you with a link to the Adobe Flash Player website.
Step 2. Notice on the left of the URL bar that there is a lock symbol. Click on this symbol and go to ‘Site Settings’, this should open up a new tab with options to control what is and isn’t activated on that particular website.
Step 3. Here notice that there will be an option for Flash, click on the drop down beside it which says ‘Block(Default)’ and select ‘Allow’.
Step 4. Back to the webpage which has the program you’re trying to run, it will prompt you that settings have been changed and the page needs to reload. Hence, just refresh the page and it should run.
Note: If you have already turned on Flash for a website and then deactivated it, when you click on the lock icon again it should prompt you with the option to turn it on right there. Just click on the drop down which says ‘Block(Default)’ and select ‘Allow’.
