cannot into space
Profound, to me, means made me think about a lot of stuff, and had me sitting at my computer wondering for a couple of minutes afterwords.

Here are some great examples of this. (Note: I got all of these from Jayisgames, so that's where the links go to.)

Anything by One Mr. Bean but that was yesterday, [Together], The End of Us, How my Grandfather won the war. This guy has talent for making you feel like you just did something transcendent.

Small Worlds I really can't say anything about this. Go play it, it's an exploration platformer.

Someone mentioned The Company Of Myself, and that's a wonderfully artistic depressing game. Here's another one by the same author: Viricide. Just don't expect to be filled with happiness.

A chess game This is brilliant, from a computer standpoint.

Silent Conversation Books and games meet, in a way you wouldn't expect. Relaxing and ejoyable to someone who loves books.

Seasons. What was that? I don't know, but it made me feel happy.

The Asylum. The ONLY flash game to make me cry. Don't worry, there's a happy ending.

Gray. Takes some work, but is worth it. Makes you think.

WARNING: The last game on this list is NOT similar to the above.

Scrape Scraperteeth Personally, I hate this game. But I'm putting it here in the interests of fairness.

Any thoughts on these games?

Go play Kentucky Route Zero. Now.

But That Was Yesterday is my absolute favorite art game, then The Company Of Myself.

The Majesty Of Colors - and anything else by the same artist, really (I Want To Be The Moon). The Bright in the Screen. Possibly Looming, though I haven't finished it yet. There are others but I don't remember them at the moment. -_-

Profound as in deep... uh... I dunno.

Profound as in good... the Epic Battle Fantasy series as a whole comes to mind. Incredibly well made.

All Pop, No Culture
One Chance is pretty neat, except for its creator's douchey "you can only ever play this once" attitude. That's insulting the player, which I think is the worst sin a game designer can commit.
Today's episode of Master Inferno Says Terrible Things is brought to you by...
[up] That's the point. You only get one chance. You're not supposed to be able to do things over. Besides, if you're really that hung up on it there are various ways to get around that particular issue.

Deleting Flash Storage for that site also works.

I can't remember, is that the one where you're responsible for curing cancer but also basically dooming the human race?

[up] Yep. I was surprised to see I got the best ending, mainly because it didn't look like a best ending at all. XD

Eye'm the cutest!
Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When They Roar. Barring that, seconding Robot Unicorn Attack.

Either that or Katawa Crash. (You can find a version here but because of Danbooru do not expect the ads to be Safe For Work.)

Or you could always go with Time Fcuk.

I wouldn't say it's really all that profound (it seems to me like it was meant to be a parody of those types of games), but Time Fcku is a pretty great game regardless. And Goime 500 and Looming have great atmospheres.
Do loafing!

Little miss sunshine.
Intrusion 2. It's not a web game but it's made on Flash. The whole game is one of the most epic things made on Flash, ever. Especially the final boss.

Looks neat... but not terribly "profound". :/

OBJECTION!
Seconding Vorpy about :The Game:.

It's hilarious!

Your Honor...
Anybody here like Loved? Love is also fun, but in the "profound meaning" field, it mostly just seems douchey to me. In terms of profundity, Loved is the way to go.

(also loved and love are totally unrelated, but they are the first two games that haven't been mentioned that i thought of)

Dungeon Cleaner, Star Dust I, and Epic Battle Fantasy 3 are pretty impressive.

However, they aren't necessarily the deepest. For that title, I would suggest Spectromancer (old FWG version, updated Kongregate version - these two are quite different), Fantastic Contraption, and maybe Creeper World (Training Simulator, User Space, Evermore).

This isn't counting multiplayer Flash games, of course.

...I love Fantastic Contraption, but in what sense is it profound or deep? :/

Seconded. That game was rad.
