If you’re in the market for a flight simulator then you’ve no doubt waded through a series of different websites that claim to have information on a particular product that they insist is the only product out there on the market that deserves your time, attention and most importantly (to them at least,) your money.
Truth is though that while these sites are great at promoting one, particular product, very few of them actually take the time to educate you as a visitor. They’re solely focused on ensuring that the plane flight simulator you decide purchase is the one that they’re going to profit from.
I pride myself on running a site that is, first and foremost, designed to celebrate flight simulator games as a genre and to bring together fans of these fantastic games. I make no secret about the fact there is one, particular flight simulator that I am enjoying more so than any other at the moment but at the same time, I’ll never claim that it is the only one available and that you absolutely must buy it if you want to experience some fun, aviation action.
A few regular readers have even noticed that I refrain from mentioning the name of my favourite plane flight simulator anywhere on my site other than on the links/resources page. I do this deliberately because, as I mentioned earlier, the purpose of this site as far as I’m concerned is to educate newcomers to the flight simulator community. I want those people – as well as long-standing flight sim fans – to know exactly what the state of the genre is these days and what they can come to expect from a flight sim title when they purchase it.
Choosing the best flight simulator for you isn’t about going to a site and having a whole bunch of flashing banners and misleading links push you into a purchase. It is about learning what to look for in terms of features, benefits and price and then making an educated, wise decision.
I hope that my site will help you in that regard.
