When it comes to playing games on older or maybe cheaper PC hardware these days, it can be extremely difficult to find the right games to play. With many, many titles looking to beef up visuals to near-realistic heights, older hardware just can’t seem to do the trick all that often. Though, that’s not always the case, especially for those looking to play flight simulator games on a low-end PC. So, if you are looking into them, here are what we think are the 7 best flight simulators for low-end PCs right now.
If you’re looking for a flight simulator that’s got fair amount to do in it, then Humble Game’s own Project Wingman is the best choice for you. Not only can you run it if you’ve got a GTX 660ti or equivalent, but there’s a large amount of aircraft to pilot and large-scale game modes to engage in.
On the free side, you really cannot go wrong with War Thunder. It really is a interesting game that warrants a download. The aircraft are beaufituflly recreated and you can even take to the ground or water in other kinds of military vehicles.
Another great free-to-play flight simulator is Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight. Not only does it have great combat, but it’s generally dated-looking visuals make it no sweat to run on an old or lower end PC. This is a must-have, even just to give a try.
If there’s one flight simulator game that most have heard of, it’s Microsoft Flight Simulator. Not only is it an impressive title, but it can actually run on older hardware if you lower the visual settings. The game isn’t very demanding at lower settings, so feel free to check it out!
If you’re not a fan of Flight Simulator for one reason or another, a comparable title is Laminar Researcher’s X-Plane 11. This has a large roster of planes to fly around some great locales that won’t scorch your hardware if it’s on the lower-end side of things.
Though Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has a steep learning curve, it’s really a fun game once you get the hang of it. Players that can wrap their heads around it will be happy to know that it actually runs on some low hardware. It’s definitely worth a try, especially if you can get it cheap.
Last on our list is a tried and true simulator title that won’t impact your hardware, no matter how old. Kerbal Space Program is a difficult simulation title to wrap your head around but it’s one that’s well worth the time to get into it.
Well, those are our choices for the 7 best flight simulators for low-end PCs! If you liked this list, then check out some of our others, such as “Best Life Simulator Games on iOS and Android”. And feel free to like the Gamer Journalist page on Facebook to get updates for our most recent content!
