Space shooters! Back before I gave up the dark, money-sucking hole that is PC gaming (I was spending over $1000 a year on HW upgrades
), I loved me some space shooters! Freelancer
, Independence War
, Descent: Freespace
and Freespace 2
, the Wing Commander Games
, TIE Fighter
. Even the earlier Descent
games, which were planetbound, but involved combat in a hovering figher with 360 degree free movement like a space shooter. I remember my favorite controller for games like that, SpaceOrb 360
; I gave my last one away to the PC gaming son of a close friend, new and in the box.
Other than a brief interlude in Halo Reach
, were there any successful games with space combat for 360 or PS3? They really ought to be revisited in the new generation.
