It would have to be future astronauts, because an entire game where your living space is as big as 4-5 cars would get boring quick.

* Astronauts on a space station 1 mile wide, however would be very interesting.

You might be right, but i'm pretty sure the underwater lab was much bigger that.

Also, look at Rapture in Bioshock. You could have subs that let you explore out to other underwater bases as well.

There's tons of PC games where you play as an astronaut.

Yeah I was just about to make this comment.

Just because it's not an AAA blockbuster astronaut game where you're out-running space explosions and killer asteroids from angry aliens while trying to save the planet in a nuclear powered space craft doesn't mean more reasonable space simulators don't exist.

I always get out of my ship on X3 to repair it myself.

kerbal space programme anyone? (yes i realize s/he said AAA games)

isn't Risen 2 exactly the pirate game he described?

and i'm sure there is a deep sea game somewhere

There is a game that has been greenlit called world of diving not sure if it will have deep sea stuff in it.

But it looks quite interesting i have a close eye on it atm.
