Genre: Simulation - Space combat
Group DescriptionThis group includes games that simulate space combat. The degree of realism in the simulations plays little role, since, as of now, space combat does not exist (or at least is unknown to humans). However, to distinguish themselves from pure action shooters, these games must emulate a spacecraft's three-dimensional motion in a free environment and have the player control the ship and its weapons, most commonly from a first-person cockpit view.
Note: Games that feature extensive space exploration and trading in addition to combat should not be included in this group.
