The history of WWI flight sims (Game list)

Posted by David on September 11, 2008 05:31 PM

A couple months ago, John Goodrich rightly pointed out that I'm missing a LOT of WWI flight sims on my website, particularly older sims.  I've been debating how to add this content to my website, but I think I'll start with this post.  Here's the list of games that John compiled and sent to me.

I've made a few edits, and there is likely a lot of missing information.  My mission is to attempt to get ahold of a lot of these games, play them, and review them.  I'll provide screenshots and maybe some video.

Know a sim that's not listed?  Have any ROMs of these games?  Let me know and I'll credit you in the review  :)
