Having a history spanning more than 30 years, flight simulation games have come a long way.
From Bruce Artwick's SUBLOGIC simulation, which ran on 8 bit personal computers of that era, to the ultra modern Microsoft flight simulator and flight pro sim, these games have come a long way- thanks to a growing demand and and equally promising growth in technology and underlying hardware.
New flight simulation games offer the end user the liberty to modify and name their aircrafts as well.
Combat flight simulation games give you the power to choose the kind of weaponry you would want to have with your fighter aircrafts and also give you the choice to move from era to era.
For instance, if you are a fan of those gliding machines that were deployed back in the era of WWII, you can move back in time and fly those machines.
If you are into the likes of Sukhois, MIGs and F17s, then you can move ahead in time and fly these machines.
The choices you have are endless and this is what makes flight simulation games all the more appealing to gamers and home based entertainment seekers.
Warcraft, Ace Combat and the Red Barron series are some of the most respected named in the field of combat aircraft games.
Pilotwings and Pilotwings 64 are two of the best home based flight simulation games to have been rolled out by Nintendo.
Sony is also planning to launch some great general flying games soon.
With all the big players in the market battling it out for the title, no other time in the history of gaming has been so good for the end consumer, with hoards of choices and great prices, the best is yet to be!
