    Recommend 6DOF shooters from Steam like Forsaken

    So there's Retrovirus which looks fun, and Miner Wars which doesn't. Any other Forsake/Descent like 6DOF Shooters that you'd recommend?

    I don't know if it's on Steam but you can get Terminal Velocity from GOG. It's mostly set outdoors but there are a couple of parts where you fly through tunnels although nothing as complex as Descent.

    I think you pretty much listed all the 6DOF shooters available on Steam in the first post. Miner Wars is as bad as it looks, Retrovirus was... Meh. I didn't care much for it, but I still maintain there aren't any suitable input devices for a 6DOF game, you need two sticks, possibly some pedals. I've tried a keyboard and mouse, twin stick controller and a flight stick, none of them feel good at all in my opinion!

    Man, Forsaken ... I used to love those audio clips. Multiple Fire Rocket Launcher.

    Decent in various versions is still the best.

    Also its follow on's freespace 1 & 2 are the best arcade style space sims, x-wing and tie-fighter come close though
