I also would love to know a good one, I know there is MS Flight Simulator, but I want something more "at the edge" if you know what I mean.

TIE figher and X-Wing Alliance are still my two favorite games of all time. I guess they are kinda 'fighter pilot' games.

Lock-On: Modern Air Combat is a great fighter game IMO.<br />

I like Blazing Angels alot. It is originally a 360 game, but I like to play it on my PC with a 360 controller. LOL. It has very simple controls (maybe even too simple):<br />
Left analog stick: pitch, turn (an automatic combination of roll/yaw)<br />
Right analog stick: throttle<br />
Right trigger: Fire<br />
That's about it. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
They didn't do a very good job of porting it to the PC, in fact they did horrible. It still has all of its original "Press A to continue" and the tutorials still show you how to use all of the controls for the 360. But God forbid you're on a keyboard. You will be an ace at flying the planes on a 360, but you're in the dark about how to do it on a PC.<br />
Great game anyway.

I got hooked on the Stealth series. Flying combat jets is such an elegant artform. But, it can be slow at times. I think the modern: "WOW ME EVERY FREAKING SECOND BEOATCH!!!" mentality has sort of made those games obsolete.

The Jane's Combat Flight Simulation are where it's at. They had a series of combat sims maybe 4 or 5 years ago. Full list here.<br />

I still have 5 or 6 laying of them laying around but I can't get them to run on XP no matter what I try. They were really fun with the sidewinder joystick.
