Few will argue that Microsoft’s Flight simulator is amongst the most impressive games ever created. The plane models are absurdly detailed, the lighting systems lifelike enough to pass for real, and the simulation levels near perfect. But it isn’t the simulation detail that most are talking about. It is the fact that Flight Simulator literally allows the player to fly anywhere on the planet.
Microsoft’s Flight Simulator is all about putting you right inside the cockpit. But, while it’s always been about making you feel like the pilot, it was not available as a Virtual Reality experience until as recently as the 22nd of December 2020.
