    I'd had it with the last version of MS Flight simulator, when I was trying to fly a 737 and was having trouble. After 4 attempts it aborted the game, and told me to try again when I could focus better. That was it!.:argh:

    ROFL. Naw, I don't hold that against the plane. I've just learned in my business, that it's all about trust. That's what Boeing blew.

    I have never understood the fun of this game, I mean I suppose you can never really simulate the feeling of flying for real. But the graphics of the new version do look good though.

    It's probably fun for those that would like to fly but can't. Kinda like teens that play racing games because they aren't old enough to drive. It's not the real thing, but it's as close as you're gonna get.

    Yes I guess so, but to me it wasn't thrilling at all, not comparable to racing games.
