I remember my first Sim was Sub Logic Jet and I thought it was the $hit running on my high tech 10MHz XT Clone's amber monitor.
Look where we are now.
I do miss what I call the "Flight Sim Renaissance though. Remember when Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator (1998), European Air War, World War 2 Fighters, Longbow 2, F-15 by Janes Combat Simulations were all still new games.
That was an excellent year for Sims and I hardly had enough spare cash to buy them all
At least now I can occasionally go back and buy an older one that I do not yet own like RB3D etc. Just wish the damn newer OSs would support these games properly.
