You can then tell the system, via Get Info, to open all Flash and Shockwave files with this standalone player. The original game or movie will come up at the same time, it's true, but if it's something that requires a click to start, then you shouldn't have competing audio or video.
Why go to this extent when there are other ways of doing it? Well, QuickTime Player does not always handle Flash and Shockwave files well, and also, sometimes, you don't want to load up your browser to simply look at a local Shockwave file. This is a convenient, if alternative, way of doing it, and you even get the nice-looking Macromedia Flash icon assigned to your downloaded content.
UPDATE: Commenters in this thread located a standalone Flash Player which has fewer inconveniences than associating it with a pre-existing standalone Flash movie.
