Does anyone have any recommendations for where to look for playable pixel art games? 

It seems like there used to be a ton of websites that hosted free-to-play flash games back in the 1990's and 2000's.  Those kinds of sites are becoming a lot harder to find now that app stores and Steam have become the primary platforms for indie distribution. 

I know about a few websites like Kongregate, GOG, and NewGrounds.  Unfortunately there's a lot of mobile content and shovelware to sift through with those.  Pixel Joint, Pixelation, and Retro Gamer have extensive resources, but there's not many examples of actual gameplay footage to look at for inspiration and animation references.

Are there any obscure websites that have an archive of just pixel art games?  Surely there must be a stash hidden away somewhere on the internet.
