PostSubject: Any flight game players?   Mon Aug 10, 2015 6:41 am

Are there any other flight game (either full sim or arcade) players here?

I've played most Ace Combat games since AC04 and the earliest flight games I remember playing was the Strike series and MiG-29 Fulcrum back in the days of the Sega Channel. Another one I got some time after SC's discontinuation was called F-117 Night Storm with a story mode spanning the F-117 Night Hawk stealth fighter-bomber's service career from testing in the 80s to Operation: Desert Storm.

More recently I've played the PS1 games Soviet and Nuclear Strike (the former only on PS3, but I had the latter on PS1) and Apache Air Assault. Right now, my favorite would have to be Tom Clancy's HAWX due to it having a number of aircraft not commonly featured in flight games.

Pilotwings ftw.


Now srsly, I played a lot of the ps1 and ps2 era of ace combat. Tried the new "free to play" on ps3 too, felt nice but that microtransaction shit made me quit.

I used to rent Desert Strike for genesis a lot as a kid, and 1942 on famicom was very addicting.

I don't have a thing for Flight Games, but I did buy a Wingman Flight Stick at a yard sale.

I played Ace Combat 3 on PS1, but my copy was unfortunately bugged and would always freeze after completing the first mission, so I could never advance through it. I played the shit out of AC04, though. AC5 is probably my favorite of the entire series because I felt it had both the best story and best roster of aircraft. ACZ was okay and I enjoyed it, but not as much as 5. I rented 6, but never bought it due to my 360 RRoDing and never delved very deeply into it. I have Assault Horizon as well, but despite the new features like helicopters, bombers, and gunships, I'm not too thrilled with it because of the real world setting. I prefer the Strangereal setting.

Yeah, that part didn't appeal to me either. I fail to understand how it can be called "free to play" when you have to buy "fuel" to actually play it. More like "free to acquire, pay to play", IMO. That, and I generally prefer single player modes in games over the free-for-alls that make up multi-player these days.

I remember Desert Strike, yeah. Urban Strike was actually the first of the Strike games I played, though. Not that its expanded amount of missions or pilotable vehicles fostered any dislike or disappointment for Desert, as I had great fun with it. The Strike series is one of a few I'd really like to see revived.

I thought by "now srsly" that that was a joke? I've never actually heard of a game called that.

Nuff said. Been around since the SNES days.

Never heard of it. It's really not my thing anyway, I prefer combat-based flight games.

On another note, I do vaguely remember playing Top Gun: The Second Mission on NES.

I prefer SHMUPs myself Razz

I think the only "realistic" flying games I've ever played are F-15 Strike Eagle for the NES and Wings for Amiga, both of which I happen to own.

is very fun, but since is cartoony and nintendo-like feel it isn't considering an actual flight game. There's a N64 version but I've never played it.

No, not "usually". Very rarely, I'd say. They just take a little getting used to since the sensitivity and timing will be different between games.

Controls inverted? Like, when a game has a flying/swimming stage? I've never had that happen.

I do agree, swimming levels (or water levels in general) are usually the most annoying ones. Flight levels, on the other hand, I tend to enjoy.

No, not "very rarely". Teh Spike says, quite often. Quite often the controls are inverted, among other things and just hard to work with. You wanna swim? Play Echo The Dolphin.
Inverted? What do you mean?

Inverted controls in a flying/swimming level and/or a N64 FPS or FPA (First Person Adventure) means pressing down goes up, and vice-versa.

Funny thing, I just finished playing a weirdo flight game on PS2 where there was a tank level and in that one the controls were inverted, not in the actual flight missions.

There is an option to invert aiming in almost every single shooter out there. Your point?

RE4 was the first RE to implement the option to have inverted aiming, and even to this day is still one of the few games in the series with this option. Teh Spike doesn't care about other shooters.

I still fail to see your point. That has nothing to do with flying games or the inversion of controls changing during gameplay whatsoever.

I play with inverted up/down controls in any game with the option, not just shooters or flight sims. I find it to be more natural based on the direction that a vertebrate's head moves when looking up or down. They tilt their head forward to look down, whereas they tilt it back to look up. Translated to a D pad or analogue stick, forward = up and back = down.

And besides, that's what you do when actually flying an airplane. Push the stick or yolk forward to descend and pull it back to ascend.
