Miscellany: Introducing Flight Sim Fridays

One of My Favorites

Hey friends, I am super excited about this new thing I’ll be doing on Fridays, now that I’ve finished Yakuza. I had so much fun over these last several months playing my favorite classic sims that I’m going to make it a weekly thing! Each week, we’ll go through one campaign in one sim until I finish it or get fed up with it. I’m gonna stick to a few things, such as:

  • We’ll choose one theater/campaign per sim and stick with that.
  • I’ll complete every training mission.
  • If my pilot dies I’ll just restart a new one and keep going. The primary goal is finishing a campaign.
  • If I find a game too difficult or annoying I give myself permission to move on.

This way I can focus on the fun of playing the sim, which is the primary goal isn’t it? :)

Now I have plenty of sims in the pipe, and I’m going to play through them in basically chronological order of release. Here’s the full list, in order:

  1. F-19 Stealth Fighter
  2. F-15 Strike Eagle II
  3. F-16 Combat Pilot
  4. A-10 Tank Killer
  5. MegaFortress
  6. Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe
  7. Gunship 2000
  8. Stunt Island
  9. Tornado
  10. 1942: Pacific Air War
  11. Apache
  12. Hind
  13. EF2000
  14. iF-16/F-16 Fighting Falcon
  15. Fighters Anthology
  16. Red Baron 3D
  17. Enemy Engaged
  18. European Air War

This is going to be so much fun you guys. I cannot wait to dive into all these classic sims. Please let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll see you in the skies on Friday.
