    Default Recommendage Request: Genesis Flight Sims

    I recently picked up F-117 Night Storm for the Genesis and was also lucky enough to find a very simple Genesis flight stick controller as well. The gameplay reminds me a lot of the PC version of A-10 Tank Killer, which I loved back in the day. It's been a good investment, thus far yielding quite a few hours of 16-bit gaming goodness, and I want more.

    So what are some other good quality POV-style Genesis flight sims that play well with a stick as opposed to a pad? Your recommendations, please...

    Mind if I ask which stick you have? I've been looking for the elusive Genestick for a long time, as I want one for flight sims and Space Harrier.

    As for games, have you tried LHX Attack Chopper? It should be a natural fit. Also, the Strike games (Desert, Jungle, Urban) are good for it, as are Red Zone and Steel Talons.

    I've got the Quickshot. Nothing special, but it was nice to find just a basic flight stick. It doesn't have as much roll as I'd prefer, but it does the job.

    I've got all the Strike games but they're not POV and that's mainly what I'm looking for right now. And I've become rather used to playing those with the pad so I'm not sure I can make the transition to stick easily. As for Steel Talons it's the same situation; I'm used to playing it on the Lynx (it's better than people give it credit). But I'm willing to give it a go on the Genny.

    There really aren't that many flight sims for the Genesis.

    F-15
    F-22
    F-117
    Mig-29
    Steel Talons
    LHX Attack Chopper


    All are equally good, IMO, so why not just get them all?

    I rather enjoyed MiG-29 when I was younger, so I recommend that one.

    "All equally good" is not the same as "Any of them are good". So as long as none of them are super-rare, I suppose I'd be willing to invest in the lot. I already have Steel Talons (and F-117 obviously).

    This looks like a good list, but based on it, it doesn't look like Genny developers gave World War I any kind of love. Surely there's got to be at least one Red Baron-esque game out there for this system? That's really the sort of flight sim I like most of all: Simple bi-planes with Spads and lots of low-altitude hot dogging.
