“That’s the problem with games nowadays: manuals are no good,” you’ll hear in the pub. “I miss the days of manuals so large they could crush a man’s skull,” they lift their faces from their pints to say. “I killed a man, once, you know. Whipped out my manual, whopped it on his head, and he was gone.” Their drinking partner nods. “I miss those days.” You try to slink away unseen – the fogies are going on about Falcon 4.0 again.
If you fancy some vintage hardcore flight sim action, and can live without physical murderweapons, head on over to GOG, where they’ve dug up the four Falcon games.
