I didn't see this topic before, but I find it very disturbing that so many people are trying to get Java working and are even disabling security features of their machines in order to do so. Java is the number one source of malware infections on the Mac right now! It's simply too dangerous to be playing games with at this time. See:
Note that there is currently a known vulnerability in Java that as yet has no fix.

My computer updated and I am having the same problems with playing games. It says my Java is not installed and I'm pretty sure in has to do with the plug in that was blocked because of security issues.
I know Oracle gave a previous update to address this problem but it no longer seems to work once the computer updated.
Is this going to happen everytime an update occurs?

What I didn't think to do before, was to click on the grayed out words "Disabled app" or whatever words appear in the space that Java should be running. You'll then be prompt to allow appa to run. Click Allow, and you're done.
To the comment above about lowering the security options in System Preferences: I tried that option without success. If you also tried this, please remember to restore the security setting to HIGH to protect your Mac.

This...Worked....awesome! Something so simple and irrelevant
My system became a problem when I clicked "do not notify me until next update" and then refused to launch any more java applications
