Space flight games?

I would like to know what are some good space flight games that you know of or have heard of? I am a fan of this genre and would like to know what have you played?

If you scroll down the first page of this forum, you'll see at least two recommend sims.

In this case, simulation is a bit of a stretch we still have only primitive space technology in the real world.

Hope that helps!

Played a lot (starting with Wing Commanders & X-Wing). And then even written quite a bit of code (in C/C++) & scripts for some on my free time. Favorites would be Kerbal, I-War 2 & Freespace 2 Open.

KSP now has difficulty levels and Kerbal Bucks in Career Mode. You have to manage your program carefully in order to acomplish your goals without going broke. That management include selective research investment on only those parts that you need, taking on research contracts in order to earn additional funds, and planning your program to be the most efficient.

Difficulity levels include disabling revert flight and saves which can result in loss of funds and Kerbals in missions that fail including having to resort to expensive repairs of Kerbal installation should a really bad launch crash into a building or the launch pad.
