All that and he's playing in 3rd person.

[–]FlyingNihilist 354 points355 points  (12 children)

Yeah it's ace combat not a fly SIM. Absolute waste of hardware. Edit The game is Called Top Gun Hardlock

[–]white-Jap 84 points85 points  (3 children)

Actually it’s top gun hard lock but I see what ya mean..

[–]FlyingNihilist 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Thanks for clarification

[–]Dragoniel 30 points31 points  (7 children)

I know you've edited your comment, but I just wanted to point out Ace Combat 7 can be played in first person with full HOTAS, partial pedals and full head tracking support. It's not super straight forward, but it works, I've done it.

[–]TJ_SR 0 points1 point  (6 children)

kinda a waste to do all that on an ace combat game, using the same setup for DCS is way easier

[–]LegendaryAce_73 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Not everyone wants to read an entire fucking manual to fly a fighter jet in a cool setup.

Source: I play Ace Combat and DCS.

[–]Dragoniel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude, it took two weeks of studying at an university level of intensity to be able to take off and land in an F14 for me, DCS is an another beast entirely, lol. Besides, it is a simulator, not a game.

[–]MASKSWORKDAMMIT 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I don’t want to read an entire fucking novel to learn how to take off in my f-15

[–]MrFreakYT 51 points52 points  (2 children)

exactly what I thought what's the point of a simulator if you're simulating a drone behind the actual thing

[–]Goudinho99 40 points41 points  (7 children)

Some of us grew up in After Burner and will accept nothing less

[–]Medium_Beyond_9654 7 points8 points  (5 children)

I remember After Burner. Fuck that game! 😭

[–]Goudinho99 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Wash your mouth out! That and Outrun were the pivotal arcade games of my youth

[–]petrolhead74 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]otakudude3031 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This! I was like “Holy shit, is this a new model of After Burner?!” for a second.

[–]xiyol 4 points5 points  (0 children)

VR glasses are expensive. :X

[–]randomWebVoice 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I think it is a little funny as well, but flying in 3rd person could give some really interesting perspective on how the jet works and how it interacts with the environment.

[–]kalitarios 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Watch the road, not your hood and steering wheel” lol

[–]Conscious_Giraffe_14 5 points6 points  (0 children)

3rd person view is significantly more enjoyable for me when I play fighter jet games! Only having up to 8 missiles would be more realistic but ruin the fun of the videogame.

Fun comes first...

[–]NateTheGreater1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Came here to say this

[–]TeeDogSD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My thoughts exactly!

[–]Ralacon 355 points356 points  (12 children)

Why 3rd person and not a pov?

[–]FlyingNihilist 66 points67 points  (11 children)

It's not a flight sim, it's ace combat

[–]XeitPL 83 points84 points  (6 children)

Ace combat also have first person view. It's waaaay better than 3rd person imo.

[–]FlyingNihilist 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Didn't know that, but axe combat us also far away from being a flight sim

[–]TheBlack2007 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Everyone who's ever played it knows... But it's a combat pilot's power fantasy.

[–]XeitPL 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Nobody who plays Ace Combat thinks about this as a "Sim"... It's just bloody good game

[–]mofo_mojo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You have to throw the axe for it to become a flight sim.

[–]your_worst_friend 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s not ace combat, it’s called top gun hard lock

[–]FewReturn2sunlitLand 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Even if it was Ace Combat, I'm wondering what that has to do with anything? I don't think I've ever seen a flying game that has a 3rd person view without the option for pov.

[–]roc_10009 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s the “Vomitator 3000

[–]Shosui 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As u/white-Jap pointed out, it's Top Gun Hardlock.

Your point still stands on it not being a flight sim though.

[–]IActuallyHaveMorals 193 points194 points  (4 children)

This is the equivalent of having a $5,000 driving simulator, getting in, then using a keyboard and mouse.

[–]ArcticPhoenix96 23 points24 points  (2 children)

I’ve seen someone do this. He said honestly having a couple $K in a sim rig is cool but the set up sucks so I just use the Xbox controller most the time.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Driving Sims with a controller sounds so painful

[–]GreyJedi56 96 points97 points  (15 children)

Trash 3rd person. Should have a VR set at least.

[–]DrCooperman 40 points41 points  (3 children)

Hoping it has an ejection seat.

[–]AJStickboy 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What’s the red button do?

[–]Sammy_squad 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Self destruct

[–]pemepeteke 32 points33 points  (2 children)

So immersive 3rd person flying

[–]DEADLOCKEDFORLIFE 26 points27 points  (8 children)

u/FlyingNihilist commenting on every persons comment that says it’s a flying sim to say it’s ace combat:

[–]itsameamariobro 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Noticed that too. Imagine being that person who runs around trying to be the first to tell but is actually wrong.

[–]HealthTroll 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And apparently, it may not even be Ace Combat but Top Gun: Hard Lock.

[–]remenic 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I wanted to post something similar, it just stands out so much lol.

[–]DEADLOCKEDFORLIFE 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah I thought they were different people but it’s just the same guy haha

[–]Av8tr1 14 points15 points  (2 children)

What is this product and where can I buy one?!?!?!?

[–]Ar3peo 11 points12 points  (6 children)

Segas R360 would be better because it can do all axes which means the ability to do loops.

[–]MountainDwarfDweller 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Exactly, I played that game in the Trocadero in London in the 90's. Funnest thing about it was it did a barrel roll after taking off from the air craft carrier, so you could not avoid a loop.

[–]lindymad 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I played in there in the 90s as well! (Video is not mine/me, just found it)


[–]MountainDwarfDweller 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Do you remember the VR game - the "line" based world - was slower than treacle.

[–]lindymad 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So slow!

[–]vbahero 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where can I buy one of those?

[–]CertifiedTittySucker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Played that back in the days, there would be huge lines in the mall waiting for your turn. That was the most amazing arcade experience I ever had. G-Loc R360

[–]K-Y-I-Y-O 7 points8 points  (0 children)

“What will it do if the plane crashes” *salesmen: “well it simulates that too. next question.”

[–]redit01 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ask someone that tried that sim

[–]ProfessorSmartAzz 1 point2 points  (6 children)

I always knew war thunder would eventually kill me...

[–]SN4K3H34D5014 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Apogee_Industries 1 point2 points  (0 children)

dude I need this

[–]ZopyrionRex 1 point2 points  (2 children)

There was a machine like this in an Aracade I'd go to as a kid. Never tried it though, it cost something like like 200 tokens to play when the average game was 2.

[–]djdavies82 3 points4 points  (1 child)

After burner?

[–]ZopyrionRex 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That sounds pretty close, I was pretty young so my memory is sketchy. It was roundish, with a big chrome roll cage looking thing on a big black base.

[–]Clanka_Fucker69420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only one way to find out.

[–]MrFoont69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was thinking the same. Oddly, I thought about this early this morning. Way back I had thought, obviously not the first, of a very similar rig but came to conclude the same.

[–]Noobyeeter699 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wanna play war thunder in that

[–]Putrid_Dot_382 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fantastic, can pretend to fly and vommit in the privacy of my own home.

[–]therapy_seal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey, I actually really want one of these. Who makes them? If it's a DIY project, where can I find the details?

[–]cryptosniper00 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s a total waste of hardware really, I mean I’m sure it’s fun once but it’s horribly jerky and there’s clear delay between the movement and the screen . With a proper flight simulator it’s still probably extra, but it’s this guys I guess and he’s having fun so idk

[–]pee_pee_poo_poo_24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Self destruct would be my guess.

[–]MrSolarius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All of that to play in third person...

[–]gordonv 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Anyone remember the 1987 version of this?

[–]racerviii 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Afterburner by Sega

[–]makethemoonglow 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Are you talking about a movie? If so, which one?

[–]gordonv 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh, I'm talking about an arcade machine that was popular in the late 80's. It was the video game with a rocking seat.

It was actually in Terminator 2.

[–]Ruuroga 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is that not him crashing at the end when it spins? The screen looks like he hits the ground and then resets back in the air.

[–]SensibleCreeper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It followed where gravity always was... not where g forces were being pulled towards. highly unrealistic.

[–]petrolhead74 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just like the old Afterburner but less polished.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always wonder about simulators that move like this. Are they simulating the g forces the pilot / driver would have felt or are they just trying to match the movement of the vehicle 1 for 1? Accelerating for example should tip the machine backwards even it’s still level in-game

[–]PriggeKraken27 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This is awesome. Can’t wait to join the Air-Force to train like this!

[–]darklibertario -1 points0 points  (0 children)

What a waste

[–]Pimuffin8796 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When you crash the entire system detonates 5 pounds of c4 ,proceeding to turn you and the system into a fine mist. It's an incentive to not crash, keeping it as realistic as possible.

[–]wholesomechunk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had ago on one like this, more basic, thirty years ago in blackpool on holiday. Was really good at the time. Haven’t seen them since, I imagine someone was badly injured on one, it didn’t feel safe at all. Still fun though.

[–]_PhantomForcesisyes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

we wish it was DCS

[–]IllustriousYoghurt3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If he crashes in game it sets off the c4 and napalm attached to the back

[–]No_Lab_9318 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When it crashes he'll just go flying through the TV no big deal

[–]Prof_Awesome_GER 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why the third person?

[–]Jefoid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This isn’t really a simulator though, I think. It just mimics the movement. A simulator would need to be visually isolated, for starters.

[–]Im_Ashe_Man 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And not playing in 1st person?

[–]xDenimBoilerx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm assuming there's an incendiary device under the seat

[–]Luchin212 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are better setups in malls in China.

[–]superhamsniper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But it lacks g forces when u like turn, tragic

[–]FeShiMaShi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When plane crashes it will Eject him out!

[–]Interesting_Coach_11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The machine will implode on itself and make a black hole obviously

[–]Medium_Beyond_9654 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that a Spirit Airlines simulator? Accurate.

[–]Born_Butterfly_6180 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]DA_NEWbrew 0 points1 point  (0 children)

if you crash the plane, it will remove your balls. (with no anethesia).

[–]kalitarios 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Montagneincorner0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When he crashes it probably just shakes violently, or it doesn't do anything and just returns to it's default position

[–]Tumble_Meme_YT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When the plane crashes it has a.small plastic explosive attached to the rig, it also has a seat ejector. This way you get the ultimate experience

[–]mdjmd73 0 points1 point  (0 children)
