I have a co-worker who's a hunter and a deadly shot. He loves FPS as well and supposedly has a pretty big online rep as one bad hombre. I told him I dabble in FPS but the hardest game I play is a flight sim call IL2 Sturmovik and it's associated add-ons.

He scoffed and snorted "how hard can it be, you're just pulling a joystick around". So of course I dared him to come over and try. I've a QMB set up where I tackle 8 B-29's in a KI BigGun. I use it to "get my eye" in after absences. I ran the mission and promptly downed the first four plane element. I then paused the game and told the mighty hunter to "have at it".

This guys a real shooter and has enough deer meat in the freezer to prove it, but inside of 50 seconds he was augering into the ocean. I give him credit though he kept at it sweating and cursing for about an hour till finally we got his plane within sight of a the B-29's and before he could even squeeze the trigger his screen went black.

"WTF!!!???"" "Man you need a new computer cause your's is broke. The screen went black all of a sudden". It was all I could do to keep from laughin', but after a couple of seconds I told him what happened to him and asked him how it felt to be "owned" by a computer game.

He shook his head, and finally realised that in this game, the enemy really shoots back. "That's one tough game, you have to use both hands and both your feet to keep in the air and then someone starts shootin' at you".

Good news is "he got it", bad news (for him at least) is I think he's now got "the bug". The clincher is when he saw that "Creamer's Dream" skin in all it's glory. "This ain't Aces Over Europe eh?" he asked.

I once started a thread stating how flight simmers are a cut above; I knew I was speaking off the top of my head. I was compared to being Nazi-like by a couple of members here, it turned into a flame war, and that ended that. Anyway, it was an enjoyable read Worf, you couldn’t have planned it better http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ha, ha, ha, ha.... best laugh I've had all day.

Yep. Lotta people don't see the appeal to flight simming unless they give it a try. Good going, Worf101.
