FS History Video

Recommended Posts

Not sure if you chaps have seen this already, but i found it a mildly distracting review regarding the history of our beloved franchise.

 

I didn't make the video, nor have any relationship to the individual who did:

I also rather enjoy the "John Dunbar Theme" music from "Dances with Wolves"

Thank you for sharing. Really nice video. It's amazing how this franchise evolved throughout the years. Sad that it came to an end.

Help us Lockheed Martin, P3D is our only hope!!!

Man, frame rates in most those games look like <5fps most of the time. Gag.

Yes, newcomers aren't aware just how rudimentary the early stuff was. I can remember even then being somewhat amazed and spending many hours staring at an almost "slideshow" framerate but still enjoying my Tandy 1000 EX and MS FS2.1.........man I'm feelin' old right now :lol: .
