What other games/simulators do we all play??

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this forum is for this kind of discussion, and I'll gladly move it to Hangar Chat (or whatever one it should be in) if it bothers some. Anyways... What other games do all you simmers out there play BESIDES MS or Fly! or Flight Unlimited Flight Simulators?? I have a feeling many of us tend to play the same type of games... enjoying a simulator takes a certain type of person ;) Myself... I play (both CFS included I guess) Half-Life Counter Strike, Unreal Tournament, Falcon 4.0, Warcraft 3. Anyone else?

Apart from a bit of CFS, and very occasionally RTS (realtime strategy) games (and the last time I did those seriously was in 1999 or so), nothing at all.

I've been using NoLimits coaster sim for a while. Never released in retail stores, it's only available for web purchase and download. There's been great support for it, several free patches and updates, and a rather large user community. I've been a big coaster fan for almost 30 years now, and as I've grown older, I don't get the chance to ride 'em as much. No Limits is the best substitute I've seen..... :)-John

I only play simulators, other genres are not interesting at all. PS1.3, AS2, X-plane. Less frequently MS train sim, Virtual Sailor. Perhaps 1-3 times a year WWII combat flying or Silent hunter 2. I used to drive racing sims alot, Papyrus sims and F1 simulators. Chasing better and better lap times was an obsession. Somehow racing sims lost their attraction, perhaps I drove too much;)

I figured we all mostly played simulators on here!! LOL. JohnCi, I'm interested in that roller coaster game, gotta link? I love RTS games like Warcraft 3, Command and Conquer, Starcraft...etc, but I don't play them much anymore. FPS games are my favorite besides the trusty MSFS series!

The only other game I play is an addiction I've had since 1996 - Descent. The third version in the series, Descent3, was released about 2-1/2 years ago but really was ahead of its time, since only now does the average mainstream home PC have enough horsepower to render the game properly for smooth real-time play. If you've had a taste of general aviation in the real world and want to play a game that will release the same endorphins that real-life flying produces, you owe it to yourself to find a $10 copy of Descent3 in the "older games" section of your local computer superstore, or online.Descent3 is a first-person shooter, but don't confuse it with "groundpounder" games like Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, Quake, Doom, etc. In Descent3 you are piloting a single-person spaceship but confined to a cavern-like environment (a subterranean mine inside an asteroid according to the storyline) to conserve polygon bandwidth, with no gravity & full 3-D movement control. There is no gore, just spaceships shooting at each other.The single-player version is good for training purposes but the really exciting element is online multi-player over the Internet. On a typical weekend evening there are 50-75 multi-player servers running in the USA, with 2-8 people playing in each game. Sadly for Descent3, though, there are perhaps 20 times that many servers&players playing Unreal Tournament!Now that the typical home PC can display the game properly, the biggest obstacles to the game's popularity are 1) that the motion control is REALLY hard to learn, and 2) that some people experience strong vertigo after playing the game for many minutes. Hopefully this post will stir up some interest in Descent3, since 3-D flight should be a strong enticement for the typical AVSIM reader.Here are Interplay's official and [link:www.interplay.com/descent3/fss.html|screenshots].

Descent!!! Man I loved that game! I almost quit school to play it (lol). It was a close one between that one and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter Star Wars game. I don't mind playing a few rounds of Tiger Woods 2002 golf either, it's on my brothers computer.

I play Falcon 4, Flanker 2.5, Comanche VS Hokum, Ghost Recon, and a variety of racing simulations, including Nascar 4 and F1 2001. Every now and then a FPS will get my attention. I played the marine mission of Aliens VS Predator 2. I also enjoy Mechwarrior 4. How do I play so many games? I do them in phases. Currently, I am in my combat sim phase. :)--T

I'm a gamer at heart, but have slowed down a bit recently.Strategy games are great--Civilization probably my all time fav--Civ3 now is real nice.Tons of flight sims..I suck at all of them, but I crash with style.Wargames for a long time...I have probably 30 or 40 computer wargames.Some RTS...although those clickfests are not for me...but Starcraft is a blast. Also, Age of Empires 2...oh...SHOGUN...very nice game.Car RACING !!!! Rally is what I'm doing now...and of course the Nascar series. Started out with Indy500 by Papyrus--whenever that came out...quite a few years ago...hooked on that ever since...

Combat Flight Simulator 2, Combat Flight Simulator 3 (when it comes out), Rally Trophy, Grand Prix Legend and, dare I add, Quake III. In defence of the latter, it *is* a good way to unwind after a hard day.

When I had the time I played:- Jane's F-15- Apache- Nascar- Sims (but then I wrote a program to give me unlimited cash so it is a fun thing)- some strategic games- Monopoly (I am an addict and own several collector's sets)Now with real life and RC breaking and ACLoader writing I barely have enough time to scratch myself. And "Survivor" will be on in a couple weeks.BTW - shouldn't this be in the Hangar Chat forum? :-lol

Currently I fly no sims and play no games, but I'm very much looking forward to the release of CFS3 and LOMAC in the coming months and to taking to the air again with the new realism that they introduce.Recently my wife and I stayed in a vacation cottage on the Northern California coast for a couple of days. There was a little chess set there, so we played a game, and I discovered my wife was pretty good. Then I started thinking about artificial intelligence and chess software, and thought it would be great to play against a "Grandmaster" right here on my own computer. So I started looking around, and discovered that Ubisoft publishes the Chessmaster series of programs, and that a brand new version designed for Windows XP--Chessmaster 9000--was due to be published in September. Well I just checked and apparently it's available now...along with the first patch! So I'll be reacquainting myself with the game of chess soon via some of the latest and greatest software. Here's the link if you'd like to know more:http://www.chessmaster.com/

FS2002. I was trying to explain to a friend the other day that I dont play games on my computer, I just fly. I guess some see this is a game but I never have thought of it that way. Oh yeah, I just ordered X-Plane since I have been/will be traveling the next couple of months. I have a Mac Titanium Laptop and Im not sure i will make it much longer without flying.-------------Michael
