Flying games based in space have always been a popular gaming genre right back to the early days of PCs with titles such as Elite. Well, this is one franchise that’s coming back with a bang with Elite: Dangerous. Another hotly anticipated title is EVE: Valkyrie from CCP.

And proving the demand for these types of games there’s a whole host of other space flying games from other developers. What makes these games highly playable isn’t just the battle element of piloting spacecraft but in some cases the deep multiplayer RPG gameplay. Enjoy.

Space is also a theme adopted for some early Oculus Rift demos without the combat gameplay. Two of these, Lunar Flight and Titans of Space have become cult hits with the DK1 community.

Next up, Flying.
