One of the more appealing aspects of a great flight simulator can be found in the fact that it presents its players with the ability to visit almost anywhere in the world.
The vast majority – if not all of the top-line flight simulators available now have an ‘open world’ type set up where you can literally plot a course and pilot any aircraft of your choosing to any number of brilliant, breath-taking and real-life locations. We’re no longer limited to enjoying the scenery of fictitious landscapes.
Naturally with so much variety available to those who take part in the airplane simulator experience, it can be a little tricky to decide exactly where it is you’d like to fly first.
Are you the type of pilot that wants to make a direct path to the Eifel Tower in Paris, France?
Maybe you’re more of a history buff and you’d like to use your freshly laminated virtual pilot’s license to take you over the pyramids in Egypt?
Perhaps you’d just a kick out of flying around your local area – imagine flying a plane over your own home! Flight simulator games have opened that surreal experience and have placed it directly within reach.
The beautiful thing about this genre of games is the nowadays, you’re not restricted to visiting the most memorable and noteworthy landmarks. It is entirely possible for you to pick any town, at random and go and visit it via your PC or laptop. The variety of locations that have been introduced to flight sim titles – even just over the last 5 or so years – is stunning. When you add to all of that the fact that graphics are crisper and more vivid than even and you’re in for a real treat no matter where you choose to go.
For those playing at home and wondering where my favourite place to fly is, I’m more than happy to share that with you.
It might be a clichéd and some people might debate with me, however, as far as I’m concerned there is nothing more exciting and breathtaking in a flight sim than to take to the skies and fly over the amazing Las Vegas at night time. If you’re a flight simulator player who is new to the genre, please do yourself a favour and make it one of the first things you do. If you’re a long-time player and haven’t visited, then you have a new destination just waiting for you to take flight!
Everyone has their opinions and I’d love to know more about yours! Where is your favourite virtual location to visit? Is there anywhere that you’d like to fly but haven’t yet gotten around to it? Let me know!
