It's very useful for games. Let's say you've made an online game, and you want settings for things like volume, key controls, etc. Sure, you could have the server remember those things and send them up to the flash player each time. But what if you have a different keyboard at home and want a different key layout? What if you want the volume off at work, but on at home? These are perfect applications for client-side flash variables.
