Usually this sort of thing would go into the Spacey Snippets, but it’s so cool I thought it deserved a post of its own. The folks at The Escapist have crafted their own space sim timeline entitled, “From X-Wing to X3: Space Combat Sim Timeline“, which is pretty cool. It starts at SpaceWar!, as it should, and covers many sims up to the upcoming Sol: Exodus, skipping a bunch along the way, but they hit most of the heavy hitters of the genre. Check it out when you have a moment.
