Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Flight simulator is an annoying game

It's an annoying game, very childish, and misses key tools and functions to be called a simulator. definitely wouldn't buy the full version.. go for other flight sim software.

Too much consumerism

Stunning Flight Simulator, but you need a powerful GPU+CPU to run it on the nicer settings.

This game is a must if you have children who love planes and anything to do with aviation, also there are repaints you can download from sites to addons for scenery, on the flipside you will need a decent GPU like an Nvidia RTX 3080 and an intel icore 7 to run it at decent settings, other than that the price tag is the same as No Man's Sky $60.00 for the standard addition alone while the deluxe and premium are several dollars more.
