NuAngel also spotted an article over at GamePro. The magazine polled its editors about which classic series need to come back... and you can see where this is going. Of course, Wing Commander is at the top of the list. Check out the article here.
Part flight simulator, part space opera, the Wing Commander series was light-years (ha!) ahead of other flight games of its time. By sharing the focus between the personal interactions with your squad mates and fast paced, white-knuckles-on-joystick action, the WC games made dogfighting through the stars against the Kilrathi Armada a believable and truly emotional experience, one which I would love to find myself in again.
