***And then, there's VATSIM. Thousands of real people doing nothing but acting like real pilots and ATCs, terminology and all. Piss one of the VATSIM crew off, and you're likely to get banned from the ''entire'' network.

* GameplayAutomation: In-universe, as in RealLife, many aircraft can be set to autopilot. How much you want the craft to be automated can be chosen such as altitude holding (And by extension, vertical speed to prevent stalls), heading or following the GPS directly, etc.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''X'''s ''Acceleration'' expansion introduces more serious missions such as intercepting an aircraft making off with contraband, flying military operations in an F/A-18 or searching for a missing co-worker within the Washington mountains. Not as dark as other examples but the missions are slightly more serious.

The series was created by Bruce Artwick, who developed the idea of creating a flight simulator on a computer while a student at the University of Illinois in the mid-1970s. After graduation, he founded the comapny subLOGIC to market the original Flight Simulator, with the UsefulNotes/AppleII version proving especially popular. Microsoft licensed the program to create a more sophisticated version for the [[UsefulNotes/IBMPersonalComputer IBM PC]] in 1982; many of the improvements were then ported back to the Apple II and other home computers as Flight Simulator II. Microsoft acquired the copyright for Flight Simulator in 1995, and Artwick continued to work on the updates well into the Windows era.

* InsistentTerminology: FSX is a ''simulator'', not a '''game''', completely ignoring that FSX is classified as a game by the ESRB and is also sold as one in '''UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}'''.
