The popularity of simulation games has exploded over the last few years including my favorite which is flight simulation which are among the most popular forms of simulation games in the market today. The flight simulation has been around for over thirty years and during this time have come such a long way. In the early days we had 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 thanks to a growing demand and and equally promising growth in technology and underlying hardware.
The new flight simulation games offer the player the ability 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 through different time periods. For instance, if you are a fan of those gliding machines that were used back in the era of WWII, you can move back in time and fly those machines. If you are a fan of Sukhois, MIGs and F17s, then you can move ahead in time and fly these particular machines. The choices you have are limitless 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!
