Microsoft Flight Simulator has been nominated for the best simulation/strategy game of the year in The Game Awards. Developed by Asobo Studios and published by Xbox Game Studios, Microsoft Flight Simulator is the latest entry in long-established series since Flight Simulator X back in 2006.
The Game Awards is an annual event that awards creators, publishers and developers in the gaming industry for the efforts in their titles. The best part is the awards are helped by votes by the community meaning you have the chance to influence who wins which award.
Before you burn me at the stake for mixing the word “game” on a flight simulation website, it’s worth knowing just how important this really is and the lasting impact it will have on the community for years to come. Since the release of the simulator in August, flight simulation has had a huge amount of exposure which has helped increase the number of people interested in the hobby and continues to drive education through simulation. With Microsoft Flight Simulator being up for such a prestigious award, it will once again highlight the product to the masses and continue to bring more and more people to the community. This can only be a good thing for community members, content creators and also developers.
Whether or not you believe that Microsoft Flight Simulator should walk away with the award for Best Sim/Strategy at the 2020 Game Awards, the fact it has been nominated is an achievement in itself.
You can cast your vote for Microsoft Flight Simulator, or any other sim/strategy game on The Game Awards website.
