How hard is this game?

Guest

Well, I turned 14 today, and with my birthday money I was planning to buy FS2004. But I'm wondering, is the game too hard for a 14 year old? How hard is it? Is it pretty easy to understand, or does it take months to learn how to fly? I'm wondering if I'm old anough to learn how to play this game. 😕

We have members younger than you.
If you want to try it.
Here is a link to the demo of FSX the new version, your computer may not be able to run it at full slides.
Run it the best you can.
If it's too much for your machine then move the slides down a little.
2004 is easier on a machine to run than FSX but it'll give you an idea.
Fly a small single engine aircraft, don't go for an airliner, fly the trike first.

If you have a joystick you'll enjoy it more.

I have to agree with Radarman - no reason why a 14 year-old shouldn't be able to play FS. At age 35, I'm an old man in the flight sim community 😀

You'll need patience and a willingness to learn. If you have those, your age really isn't important.

The most important thing is that you have a passion for flying otherwise it will be very boring. 😉

not hardly, my freind. check out the flightsim network, or the the old hangar or even netwings. there are lots of ex pilots there who have seen mandatory retirement.
