When I were a lad, well in my early 20's actually, PC gaming was in its infancy and just starting.  Back then gaming was a new thing.  It was original and different and whole new world was opening up.  My two favourite non A/C sim games at the time were the Wing Commander series and the Elite series.  Well now David Braben and Chris Roberts are back.  Have a look.  I for one can't wait and I feel like a kid again waiting for christmas.

Please let this be the return of the Space Sims. I beg you.

A cry for help, a distant whisper, A foreign nation calling our name, Sent to hell, to reach for heaven, To serve in dark, as light in the black. Sent into battle to aid strangers in need, Gain independence, our forces will lead. Final solution when all others have failed. Liberation is coming our path has been laid. We remember the fields, where our tanks held the line
We remember our brothers in arms. When the war, has been won. And our march home begins.What awaits has not yet been revealed. What was won? what whas lost? Will our deeds be remembered? Are they written on stone or in sand?

I will admit I am a space sim fan as Elite was the first game I played on back in 1982/3 and I am signed up for Elite Dangerous Beta for when it is released... as to Star Citizen I will wait and see...
