This game is going to be massive. I played the original FS as a kid and really enjoyed learning how to navigate from one airport to another. But I guarantee you this game will have better scenery than this:

Si-Fly22d ago

I appreciate your guarantee, it was hard to tell if it would have better graphics.

RazzerRedux21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

lol.....I feel strongly that I am right.....this time.

GamerRN21d ago

I truly hope they release a killer flight stick for it

Tiqila21d ago

I played that one, too. Back then the graphics were top-notch.

DJStotty21d ago

I can see it doing quite well, it has a decent following on Windows, and will be available on Xbox gamepass as well so i get to try it for free !!

RazzerRedux21d ago

Exactly. PC Game Pass for me, day one. I'm stoked for the game.

NeoGamer23221d ago

LOL. I remember playing Flight Sim as a kid as well. It was so amazing at the time.

I don't see this being game of the year or anything like that, but I do believe it is a diversity game, and it looks like it will have a cult following.

RazzerRedux21d ago

It adds depth to a library. I think sometimes that is overlooked

I wouldn't put Flight Simulator in the same conversation as The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima or Halo Infinite.

I'm sure it will be a great game, but very, very niche.

ThinkThink22d ago

oh god no, not in that league, it's not that type of game. I do think that it's going to be huge though. I never cared about a flight sim game in my life but I am waaaay to excited for this game. No idea why. I just want to fly over my house. Maybe check out some of the destinations that I've traveled to in the past. Probably won't put more than 30 hours into it unless there's a campaign of some kind.

blacktiger22d ago

microsoft propaganda always works ehe, evey version they hype you up clouding gaming my a...

Spicyram22d ago (Edited 21d ago )

Disagrees don't lie: Flight simulator will be bigger than TLOU 2 and halo. You heard It here first. Forget cyberpunk, Elden ring, FF 7, nioh 2, TLOU 2, Ghosts, hellblade 2, Resi 3, etc. it's actually flight simulator that has everyone frothing at the mouth

UltraNova21d ago

I find these flight sims very boring and monotonous but I understand that some people love these types of games to death and I respect that but these games will never be huge in the general scheme of things, but rather being huge within the flight sim community. So putting this type of game against generally popular games like tlou, GTA and Halo is rather pointless.

"I wouldn't put Flight Simulator in the same conversation as The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima or Halo Infinite."

Yet that's exactly what you did.

I wouldn't even call FS a game, but an application for flight enthusiasts and the like.

2pacalypsenow21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

I didn't do it, the article did.

"When you think of big upcoming games for 2020, odds are, you think of The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima, Halo Infinite, and the like- and you wouldn’t be wrong to do so, as those studios are surely working on some outstanding experiences. That being said, if you only play those games next year, you’ll be missing out on a massive, planet-sized game from Microsoft."

"this could potentially be the biggest game of the year, if not of the entire next generation"

SyntheticForm21d ago


Yeah, I tend to avoid actually reading gamingbolt articles; I'm sure you can understand.

dcbronco21d ago

There are flight simulators that are still being updated by fans over a decade after the development stopped. Ps5 didn't even have backwards compatibility because people aren't replaying last of us again and again. Flying is something you can get better and better at so the challenge is new with every plane. You can't say that with single player games.

rainslacker21d ago (Edited 21d ago )

It's really popular, or at least was(haven't seen much about it for a while before the new version). Iits been around for a long time on PC and is a very accurate simulator.

I think the new one will do well, particularly on PC. I think people expecting it to be a game, like a forgiving ace combat or something, may be disappointed, or at least frustrated. It's not forgiving, and if you turn your plane upside down, it's probably going to crash

NeoGamer23221d ago

But, niche games add to diversity on the platform. Truly there is nothing like MS Flight Sim out there today.

mandingo21d ago

What are you even talking about? Ur making trouble for no reason comparing games that no one even mentioned.

2pacalypsenow20d ago

The article mentioned them.

If you bothered to read the article you would know that.

mandingo20d ago

It absolutely does not mention them

No one cares. Now give me the most unrealistic taxi sim with a bunch of Offspring music, that will be BIG

grifter02422d ago

We'll have to wait for the dream cast 2 for that.

ArmyVetGamer22d ago (Edited 22d ago )

Can we do something like this but in outerspace or in the ocean... actually, do outerspace 1st with the ability to go warp speed 😎

Sony Space Simulator 😂

Si-Fly22d ago

Elite Dangerous says hello.

ArmyVetGamer22d ago

Wow that game looks amazing.

But that was 6 years ago... imagine what next gen consoles can do with something like that

I'd certainly be up for some Scavengers Oddyssey

For a sealife sim, look out for Beyond Blue:

Coming soon on all platforms. It's developed closely with the BBC and their Blue Planet 2 show, so full of realistic and accurate sealife to find and look at.

Sircolby4521d ago (Edited 21d ago )

Star Citizen is what you are looking for. It is currently in development and it will be exactly that when it is released. It is PC only though.
