short;Play: Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft Flight Simulator is the new “can it run Crysis?” game in terms of the demand it places on one’s hardware, but aside from that it’s also one of the most impressive, ambitious, sprawling pieces of interactive entertainment ever created.

Providing you with literally the entire world to explore — and in a jaw-dropping level of detail, too — there’s the potential for limitless enjoyment here, whether you’re a seasoned virtual pilot or a newcomer to simulated civil aviation.

Sit back, fasten your seatbelt and let’s go on a flight, as I demonstrate some aspects of this massive simulation on a virtual flight from the village where I grew up to the city where I live now. And don’t forget to subscribe on YouTube for more!

  1. OMG this is such a pretty game! And how often can you say a game trying to model reality can genuinely feel like a magical experience? I would not have expected it from Flight Simulator that’s for sure but it’s done it. 🙂

    1. For sure. Many is the time I look out of the virtual window of my virtual aircraft and just think “wow, this is genuinely amazing”. As a general rule, I’ve become less impressed by new and shiny tech as I’ve gotten older — particularly with the games I’m into — but the commitment this game makes to simulating reality — and how well it follows through on that commitment — blows me away time after time.
