    All of the flight sims I played were hard . Maybe it is just me, but they make it way too hard to take off.

    Although it is always fun to play the F16 games when you have a friend that loves the games and will do the takeoff for you .

    What kind of flying?

    the "just jump in and shoot other planes" or the "learn to fly" type?

    never really had a problem with taking off... full power and take it slow... dont pull back on the stick all the way.... i find the hard part is landing Sim Copter is great easy to fly... almost imposible to blow up, and you can import your Sim City 2000 maps if you have any

    Are there any free flight sims out ?? If so I would be interested in picking one up and giving it a try. Supposed this is where my vid card shines, V5 5500, so it would be interesting to see, and fun to try.

    I just installed "Flight sim 2002" last night,it has a very easy setting that had me landing right away.
    It also comes with a version of "Fighter ace2" that is fun.

    not to mention that it is one of the best flight sims for realism

    The version I have is the "pro",

    Flight Sim 2002 professional version

    I don't know if there are other versions out there or not

    The Fly! series was pretty cool. I didn't find it too difficult.

    I was in Best buy looking at games, if I pick up the box and it's heavy, then I know to put the game down..LOL
    Every flight sim game I buy has a manual that's like reading a novel!!

    That's why I never really got into flight sims.

    Crimson Skies is a nice easy one and a lot of fun, then of course there is alway the Micorsoft Combat Flight Simulator series, and all of these games can be played single, mutiplayer and over the net.

    Cool

    One similar to Crimson Skies, in terms of controls, but with an interesting twist is Airfix Dogfighter - check out www.planetdogfighter.com for info on the game - her's the best place to get it at:

    Kinda old, but classic, easy and graphics are decent. EXTREMELY fun and with a decent story line...

    Wing Commander

    Anyway, Ive heard the Jane's simulations were very good, but a bit hard.

    If you are hard up for a sin, get Descent. Okay, so its not a flight sim. Okay, so its not a sim either. But its easy to control with a joystick. Right? Guys?

    P.S. Get all the Descents. They're really cheap right now and theres a bunch of people who still play DII.

    Descent RULEZ!!!!

    Learn to fly

    In my opinion, the best place to start using sims is with MS Win95 or Win98 flight sim. They are very reasonably priced and realistic. After you master the Cessna 182, you can go on to bigger and better things in the sim world and the real world. Also, you don't need hardware acceleration to use these MS sims. They are software sims with a open GL look when Direct X acceleration is enabled. However, I don't think you could properly call the MS Flight Sims a game - they fly.
