Recently I wrote a guest post for an extremely popular online gaming blog; I was asked to pen an article about violence in video games. I didn’t want to go down the same road as most of these articles go – preaching about the sins of the video game medium and how it’s polluting the mind of this generation’s youth – so I bucked the trend and focused on some positive points instead.
Most of these articles you read nowadays are all about finger-pointing and playing the ‘blame game.’ I took a different approach and turned the focus to a more uplifting topic – the benefits of pc flight simulator games!
Let’s just get this opinion of mine right out of the way early on in the piece; I think the response to kids and video game violence is mostly an overreaction. There is no doubting, however, that there are some games out there that have been designed violently simply for the shock value in an attempt to sell more video games to gore-fanatics and to patch over game play flaws, hoping no one will notice them.
This article I wrote turned to spotlight firmly onto the flight simulator genre because it highlighted just how engrossing and entertaining and video and PC game franchise or genre can be in the modern era of entertainment, even without all the blood and guts!
Flight simulator games for PC are not only fantastic value for money in terms of entertainment hours provided per dollar, but they’re also a great advertisement for a game stimulating the average player far beyond pushing the same two buttons over and over again.
Think about it for a moment; just how much do you actually get out of being a flight simulator fan?
I know, speaking only for myself, I’ve found that flight simulators can assist you with everything from increasing your patience right through to encouraging lateral thinking. Considering the fact that so many aircraft in new flight simulators are so lovingly recreated, piloting them takes a great deal of focus and expertise that only practice and a wise head can achieve.
Add to all of this the fact that a flight sim can be extraordinarily entertaining – offering literally hundreds of hours of game play – all without a single drop of blood being shed and it’s easy to see why I consider these games to be such a hallmark of the industry!
If you’ve got teenagers – or even if you are a teenager yourself who is reading this – spread the word about just how brilliant flight simulators are and how incredibly well the stand up against their console rivals!
