I thought that I am not a very aggressive person. I detest violence and I am not crazy about war. However since I am playing PF it seems that the contrary is true. I enjoy chasing other planes and when I succeed in shooting it down it gives me satrisfaction. Of course it is just a game, but I wonder if I am the only one.
Btw, I hardly played games before, but now I can't wait until I can play PF again. It's rather addicting I think.

You should try Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. See how you feel after a few sessions of that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Much has been written about not seeing the face of your enemy in air combat at high speeds, less so in WW1, more so with jets and missiles.

Interesting though, for target practice against AI bombers, its often suggested you attack friendly bomber that won't shoot back. I have never done that--flying any side Red or Blue. I had the opportunity, but never pulled the trigger. However, I have often practiced with setting enemy bombers to EMPTY so the gunners don't shoot back.

Nobody remembers Flying Corps (http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=2922) nowadays, a fine old game which I still miss

When you shoot up enemy planes you can hear the enemy pilots screaming !

When I first heard that I laughed so much...

Clearly, I need professional help http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think most of us feel the same, partly because you realize it is a game, and setting an enemy on fire it just means scoring some points, but, on the other hand, the degree of details and "realism" is shadowing the arcade part of the game, transforming the joy from receiving points into the happines of helping a friendly not to be shot down.
I agree with Lexx, even it is just a game, it feels strange using friendly planes as target practice, when you are given the option to attack enemy planes... there is no difference between this and the infamous tk.

Well, this is just avoidance of bad habits

If you get used to shooting friendlies offline, you WILL eventually do it online by accident

I feel the same way. I am considerate at least.

The truth is, as much as I keep telling myself it's a game. I can't bring myself to shoot down American planes.

I think he meant he shot the shoot, but at least dropped him by an ambulance.
