I don't play a lot of flash games so I would like to know what genres are oversaturated on browser game sites and which ones do you think there should be more of? :o

Well platforming style games are the most common.

IMO, often times the best thing to do if you want to do something "new" or at least "less common" is to take two genres and try to combine them. For example, space invaders and block breaker, or puzzle and RPG, etc.
Don't look to me but rather to the One who is the reason for what I do. :)

If you need help, send me a PM. Even if I haven't been on in the forums in ages, I still receive those messages via email notifications. You can also reply to any of my forum posts, regardless of the age (especially if I created it), and I will likely reply.

If you want to see the programming behind certain types of games, feel free to check out my "Demo-" games on StencylForge (http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,16160.0.html)
