Atari ST A to Z: Flight Simulator II

Flight Simulator II from subLOGIC was an important piece of software for our family. Not only was it a “game” that my father enjoyed (though he continues to insist to this day that it is “not a game”) but it also directly or indirectly kickstarted the writing careers of three Davisons.

Yes, indeed, after my Dad had his enthusiastic praise of both the Atari 8-bit and ST versions of Flight Simulator II published in the UK’s Page 6 magazine, both my brother and, much later, I started contributing articles to the publication. My brother is, at the time of writing, a person of considerable importance over at IGN and I, well, I get paid to write about cute anime girls. And we can trace all that back to Flight Simulator II!

  1. It’s actually pretty awesome that a game such as this has (in it’s own way) had such an influence on your family. 🙂

    One memory I do have of FS2 is the number of books that were available for it at the time… especially “Adventures in Flight Simulator” (?) where the writers set up scenarios for you to try out in the game. Was almost like mission disks before they became a thing.
