Ars Technica - Growing up gaming: The five space sims that defined my youth
Not sure if this is the right subforum for this, but here you go:

Ars Technica - Growing up gaming: The five space sims that defined my youth

In the end there's another love letter to FreeSpace 2 and a mention of the SCP.

EDIT: And several links to HLP.

I think I'm going to have to mention the total conversions for those who aren't certain they want to pay for the games on GOG yet.

I haven't played any of the other TCs, but anyone who hasn't played Diaspora is missing out.

Our elders tell stories of a glorious civilization; of people with myths of humanity everlasting, who hurled themselves into the void of space with no fear.

Damnit! I knew I was forgetting something! And WoD would have been a great one to mention cause it's the only one based on its own IP too.
