Space sim! And it's not being made in Russia or Eastern Europe (or Texas) on a shoe-string budget!

Oh My Gosh! Oh My Gosh! Oh My Gosh!

Can't... breathe.

The X games are total shit, and I gave them a chance. There's absolutely no exploration, there's no reason to get better weapons (bad idea in fact) and it's plain boring. Now don't come and tell me, "but ItBurn, it does have X!", no it doesn't. Freelancer did it so much better that it's a crime they did it some other way.
I have no malice against the X series, but 4X games are in an entirely different genre than space sims. They don't even try to scratch that itch for single player story driven dogfighting like X-Wing, Freespace, or Wing Commander do.

By that definition there hasn't been a proper and successful space sim in over a decade (SOL: Exodus looks like it flopped).
