    Are there any good F16 fighter jet games that can be enjoyed without a joystick? I only have an Xbox 360 Gamepad

    I take shots each at GTA V, Division 2, Mafia II and Football Manager 2020 throughout the week.

    Um. Not that I am aware of. Ace Combat maybe but not sure if it has an actual F16. Most of the flight sims I fly or know really require a stick and to make life easier throttle and pedals.

    Mostly Overwatch, followed by Kerbal Space Program. I have some other stuff I haven't dug into like GTA V, Red Dead Redemption II, etc.

    I played GTA V once but never was tempted to launch it again. I dunno it wasn't anything interesting for me.

    Dear Area 51M Community,

    Just a quick follow-up on my previous message.
    I already own this laptop since a year now without running into major issue.
    Do you think I have a faulty unit ? What would be your suggestions here ?

    If you haven't experienced any issues why do you think it's faulty? I'd say if you've had a year without issue then its the opposite of faulty. Unless your comment was tongue in cheek.

    I have played about 1/3 of it. I tend to get into it for a bit, then tire of it quickly but its engaging for a couple hours periodically. Much more into Overwatch and KSP, might try out the Witcher series since its all everyone raves about.

    This machine runs all my games quite nicely, compared to my 5 year old desktop setup. Lately, I can't stop playing Subnautica (original). I'm on the fourth play through, now. Beautiful game with addictive game play and great story.

    Also, Tomb Raider is visually very nice, Assasin's Creed Origins and Odyssey are beautiful, Witcher 3, even an old Batman:AC looks and plays very well.

    Despite the occasional mechanical issues some are experiencing, the system runs quite well, from my experience.

    Edit: Just wanted to add, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyessey was visually beautiful and I found mouse/keyboard to be the preferred control scheme, despite the recommendation of using a controller. I ended up playing that one three times, through.

    FYI, Witcher series is 85% off on steam, atm, in case you were interested.
