The great thing about video games is that there is never a shortage of variety to choose from when you’re looking to sink your teeth into something new. Every video game enthusiast has his or her own take on what they consider to be the best type of game available.
I’ve taken the time to create a site solely dedicated to 3D Flight Simulator games and you’ve searched online and found your way to this page so obviously, we both fall into the category of video game players who appreciate the finer details of the flight simulator.
Time and time again I’ve gone back and forth with friends and colleagues about why a flight simulator is the greatest genre of game you can play but today, I thought I’d make things a little more fun and give you some insight into how our favourite game stacks up against the stiffest of video game rivals; Mario!
Here are some reasons why 3D Flight Simulator games are better than the icon, Super Mario:
• No Performance Enhancing Substances Required – When you climb into the cockpit of the best flight simulator only thing that you can call upon to get you from taking off to landing safely are your own skills, reflexes and levels of concentration. The world’s most beloved plumber struggles to even go five minutes without munching on ‘shrooms in order to obtain special abilities to help him progress forward. It can’t be long now before Mario’s interviewed by Oprah.
• No Time Limit – On a more serious note, I’ve never been a fan of any game – simulator or otherwise – that forces you to tear through an experience in order to beat a time limit. The beauty of a flight simulator shines through in the high level of details it provides. Magnificent machines and picturesque skylines are all a part of the flight sim experience – being able to take soak in the sights while you’re flying, time limits aside, is what makes the genre so popular.
So there are just two little teasers that you can trot out to your buddies or colleagues next time they ask you why you love flight simulator games so much. If the genre is good enough to stand up to one of the most recognizable video game characters of all time then surely they’ll have to respect that our favourite sim has more merit than they may have given it credit for!
