    PC-Combat Flight Sim's

    Im not sure if there are any other 'pc flight sim' junkies out there. I spent the better part of three years immersed in in a PC ww2 flight sim called "IL2". Teamwork and tactics were a must if you were to survive in the skies!

    Damn that sounds fun. Always enjoyed those (types of games). Don't have any though.

    I actually have IL-2 I always was ridiculously terrible because I never had a joystick lol. I recently ended up buying a game called Wings of Prey. I believe it is by the same developers as IL-2, either way it is awesome and I would recommend it if you really enjoy flight sims.

    OMG! Playing il-2 with a keyboard would be like driving a car like fred flinstone.
    This game wound up costing me some $$$ . New Video Card- Flight Joystick- rudder pedals- head tracking system (cool toy- as you move your head the screen follows)- and a dual throttle.

    Flying jets / choppers in BF2 was very handy, since you could make incredibly moves when putting the movement on max
