I'm trying to make a flowchart for the basic design of recent fighting games, since I can't stop thinking about it.  Anyway, I wanted to get a flowchart going on Word, but the text boxes kept messing up for some reason.  I tried using SlickPlan.com, but it was pretty bad for what I'm trying to do.   
 
Any helpful suggestions will do.  Also, keep the topic on topic.

You could try something like XMind. 
 
Not entirely sure mind-mapping is what you're after, but it should give you the tools to create a flow-chart.

I've been using www.gliffy.com for university work since it has pretty good UML tools. Might do flowcharts well. Give it a shot. 
 
It's a web platform but its really responsive, and even stuff like keyboard shortcuts work perfectly. You have to sign up for a 30 day trial, but all the features are pretty much available. You can save stuff online, or export your work to various formats.

@nobel: I just started using it, and it's pretty good.  Thanks again.

I use Freemind & Visio.  Here's a schematic I did for a what-if scenario to add a Hauppage to my A/V system for Visio (never did it though):

1. first define all the processes, actions, storage and conditions of the game

2. Then arrange them as step by step in a sequence to the end (out come of the game)

3. Then draw the flowchart from a flowchart software like Creately

Use boxes for processes, Arrows for the flows and Decision blocks you have Yes/No nodes
