Quit playing games
As a kid, I never had enough patience for realistic flight simulators. Of course, when I say “realistic”, I’m talking about the gameplay, not the graphics, haha! After all, that was some 30 years back. I’m sure, I would do a much better job nowadays. Actually, I’d be quite tempted to get myself a decent flight simulator. What’s holding me back is my simple, self-imposed rule to not install any games on my work computer. As a self-employed person, the line between work and private life are already blurred enough, and I know I would have lapses in discipline where “just playing to relax for 15 minutes” would spiral into hours of gaming. The danger of doing that when you’re self-employed is that the consequences (less income) are totally decoupled from the act and bite you in the ass half a year later. So I chose abstinence.
When my kids grow older, we’ll probably get a gaming console of some sort sooner or later. We try to delay that as long as possible, but in today’s world it’s kinda inevitable. While I am convinced it’s good to keep these things out of the house as long as possible, I admit I’m looking forward to that a bit! I’m sure we won’t be starting out with complex flight simulators there either though.
I know we have a whole bunch of flight simmers among our flock. Can I ask which one is the best? Or would this naive question of mine trigger a religious war in the comment section?
