    "If you are looking for a flight simulator game for windows, look no further than Elite Dangerous. Elite Dangerous is an awesome game available on steam that allows you to fly spaceships. I have been playing the game for a couple months now and it does not disappoint. I really love the graphics and the ability to upgrade my ship. I also love being able to connect with people from all over the world while playing this game."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. If you're a fan of sandbox simulation games, and love sci-fi and space themes, you must give this game a try. I've had a lot of fun so far with this game, and I feel like I haven't even come close to what I want to accomplish. There is some learning curve, but definitely worth it if you like these types of games."

    "The Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance flight simulator is a must for any die hard Star Wars fans! It really makes you feel like you are piloting your own X-Wing in outer space. Even non Star Wars fans will love the impressive and realistic flight simulation of the game."

    "This is awesome! It starts off a little easy, but gets harder and harder. It's definitely worth the money. You can actually learn some real science."

    "IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 is a really fun game that puts you back into 1946 and flying in battles! It's one of the best flight sims out there. The graphics are really good too, it really makes you feel like you are in the plane and going to battle with other planes."

    "This really helped my skills with piloting a plane. You get to figure out all of your tactical moves on how you will get the enemy. It taught me a lot about history of these planes. My shooting skills improved as well because you should plan for each move."

    "I love gaming. I don't do it often, but when I do you know its a fun game to play. I found NIGHTHAWK STEALTH FIGHTER while looking for action/flying genre games and decided to give it a try. It was very in-depth, action-packed, and overall very enjoyable. You will go through tons of missions and different story lines."

    "I am somewhat dissatisfied with the Star Trek:Starfleet Academy game. The game had great reviews, but I just do not think it is worth paying $5.99 for."

    "When I went looking for a flight simulator game, I was originally looking for something with planes, but this sounded fun so I decided to check it out. Overall it was pretty fun. The level of detail in the environments was really impressive, but I've been told that some of the helicopter physics aren't entirely realistic, which was kind of disappointing to hear. There was a bit of a learning curve at first but it didn't take long to figure out what I was doing. And I really liked that it has a multiplayer option! While it isn't my absolute favorite flight sim ever, I do enjoy flying around (and crashing into) my friends."

    "Jon Kabat-Zinns' books are chock full of instructions, theory for developing mindfulness. According to Zinn mindfulness is the state of being in the here and now free of the concerns of the past and the future. Maybe I can sum it up this way. I was here and now and the my worries about what was coming next and my memories of what happened in the past faded into the background. I just let them go."
