For those that don't know, Freelancer was a game released in 2003 and created by Digital Anvil while being published by Microsoft Game Studios.
So in over a decade why have there been so few to little space games similar to that game?
Basically, like Elite: Dangerous but with full 3rd-person views and mouse-based primary control with optional keyboard shortcuts. Would also be nice if there was full controller support as well.
Every time I get excited for a space game it is YET ANOTHER damn game with a forced-first-person cockpit-only view and the complexity of the old Jane F15 flight sim games. What happened to something simple and fun for the rest of us? >_>
