Not that big of a deal for me. That game didn't catch my eye at all.

Yea, the novelty of realistic plane flight has kinda worn off. You can pick up a whole bunch of games that will allow you to fly a bunch of planes but also have a whole array of other interesting things to do (like not fly planes, for instance).

I know people who would take a day of work once a fortnight. Lock themselves in their house take the phone off the hook and take control of a Boeing 747 flight around the world, in perfect simulation. Apparently this series is remarkably addictive
