Train Simulator vs Flight Simulator

TimTim Guest

Hey everyone

Which is your favourite??

Obviously the majority of the answers are going to be Flight Sim and some of the answers here will be biased (it being Fly Away and all).

But some people might prefer Train Sim. And for the people that do?? Why??

Don't get me wrong train simulator is alright, and can sometimes be good fun, but I think Flight Simulator is more of an art. You can never master Flight Sim, because flying in different airplanes is different just like approaches to different airports are different (Lukla vs. LAX for example Wink)

Where as with Train Simulator, it isn't very hard, is it?? I mean yeah there are some difficult bits and all that but overall its quite simple. There is no real challenge to it... and I think you can easily perfect it

But you cant in FS... the day I manage to takeoff a A380 from Cashmere is the day that I'll say I've bet the game 😛

First of all i think that you have posted in the wrong forum.

Secondly you have already said what i would have, but i don't own train sim so i can't be sure but i do think that you don't have enough freedom for the sim to be challenging.

i can almost gurentee that almost everyone who owns both games (and is not a 7 year old) will say that flight sim is the best

I don't have train sim....and don't plan to. One of the reasons for this is the lack of freedom. I like taking off, looking at my GPS and saying to myself hey that looks like a nice place, I wonder if they've got a bakers down there.

In train sim...there are no "views" and you have to follow pre-determined routes. Flight sim is definately better in my opinion...but I bet a trainspotter would disagree. 😉

Also, how much can go wrong on train sim? too fast round a corner etc.

But in Flight sim there are loads of things that could go wrong, which adds a challenge to the sim
