Are there really good other options beside Flash?

A lot of websites use flash to steam live streams, videos where it's hard to download them and shitty games.

What's the other options?

Hail, time traveler. In this timeline we use HTML5. There's another timeline where everything is Gopher based and the Internet is not very popular. There are no timelines where Flash support continues.

good riddance, it's about time.
The only thing that needs preserving imo is the Motherload flash game

Of course they do, but not because of technicalities but because the programmers who did the work did so last decade and it wasn't updated since. Flash is beyond superfluous at this point. For better or worse (mostly the worse, but compared to stuff like Flash or Java applets, the better), HTML has become fixated as a multimedia medium rather than a text medium with light image/sound capabilities. At the same time, the actual programming part for the web was finally elevated above shit level in the last couple years, making Javascript on par with Actionscript (the lang used for flash), and because JS is still kinda shit we have now TypeScript which is Actionscript on steroids and actually good.
