Space Combat Sim Timeline on The Escapist

From X Wing to X3  Space Combat Sim Timeline
They start at the right place...

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.

    1. Or hell, even the first I-War? It also skirts over some of the few space sims released in the last 10 years such as the Starshatter games, the Evochron games, several Russian/European games like Precursors, The Tomorrow War and so on.

  1. Very cool. But it also highlights how barren the last 10 years have been for good Space Combat Sims.
