How importanrt is MSFS

Recommended Posts

My life doesn't revolve around flight sim but it seems to me that it does for some.  Why?  Is it just a way for some to detach from reality?  But is it something else?   Personality I luv MSFS and if I could live my it life it would be in flight simulation fr good or bad.  

Just wondering if I need to see a phsycholigist.

It's fun. There are a lot of things I enjoy in my life.

I enjoy my wife, my friends, my dogs, hiking, fishing, flying and flight simming... 

It's fun.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Here is thing. MSFS give you ultimate freedom of flight anytime anywhere and without fear. You are not restricted by budget, real life experience, certificate or rating to take on any aircraft, glider, rotorcraft, airship..

Mine certainly doesn’t. My sim computer started having issues about 2 years ago and won’t stay powered up, so I haven’t flown in years. I’ve frankly been too lazy to take it to a Microcenter to get it checked out 😂😂 I do miss it at times and would eventually like to build a newer machine and try MSFS, but I spend so much time training for marathons that I frankly don’t have much extra time to sim and still have a relationship with my wife.

With the best will in the world, and with all due love and respect to us all, using it is much more important than talking about it on Avsim😅

MSFS is one of many hobbies i bounce in and out of. I like flying in general and find the entire ecosystem very interesting. I also just like tackling a challenging subject and this one definitely qualifies.

It's a game. I don't think much about it and attend to it when I have time. I can go months without touching it. 

During the months it's warm outside I am outdoors.
