I am Bobski Bobskikov from Kiev. I fly all of glorious Soviet aircraft. I also decide to put cheese in breast of the chicken and put it on the manifold of my Sturmovik to make hot. I am calling this Chicken Kiev. Za Rodinu!

Why do you play this game?

1. Because it's fun.

2. It involves WWII airplanes.

3. It's hard.

4. An opportunity to live somewhat vicariously.

5. It's fun.

Just yesterday I was a buddies house and he was playing some Shrek game on the console and was just rambling on about how good the graphics were and how it was just the shiz.And I couldnt help but think was a load **** the thing was and relized that IL2 and PC games in genreal are at least a decades ahead in graphics over consoles and the patience and mentality it takes to master the game like IL2 would make a console gamers head explode like a scene from Scanners.

1. Because it is the most difficult (and therefore rewarding to succeed at) game I've found.

2. Because I've spent $400 in accessories... How can I stop now?

3. Because my father was a carrier pilot (Flew S-3's... He's not THAT old http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif And it gives us some measure of common ground. Can't wait to make my first carrier landing in PF...

4. Because I love performing death-defying stunts... Except for that death is usually not actually defied. *crunch*

I play this game because my mom said I couldn't. I also bought a very expensive joystick for it (well I thought it was quite an investment), and I'm not about to let that go to waste.

I'm not only a flightsim enthusiast, I also love sim racing (nascar/gp/etc), and the more tactical war games (ghost recon/rogue spear/etc).

Why? Well ... because my dad was a navy guy. Does it make sense? Little does these days. Does it matter? I don't think so.
