Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've just been playing Ace Combat 6, and I always loved the Rogue Squadron games, but now I'm after something a bit more... serious, I guess. Something where I don't end up shotting down 100-200 enemies in each level. The X-Wing games sound good, but I can't find a legal download source for them, and can't be arsed with ebay right now. Something on Steam would be most convenient, but any good flight sims would be welcomed (except for those Microsoft ones where you fly commercial planes around an airport, because I NEED some explosions please).
EDIT: I've been looking on Steam, and IL-2 Sturmovik and the F-15 and F-22 games look like what I'm after, but I've no idea if they're actually any good.
