Space combat simulation

Genre
Space flight games that predominantly feature combat. Unlike other, normally more simple, vehicular combat games, space combat games use complex controls and mechanics in an attempt to give the feeling that the player is the active pilot of an armed, usually military, space craft, though they often tend to forgo realistic physics of space flight to make it smoother and more exciting. Games are largely mission-based as opposed to the open world, RPG play of space trading and combat games. Important games in the genre include Wing Commander, FreeSpace and Star Wars: X-Wing.
