Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
Endearing melodrama and ridiculous weapons mark the 20th anniversary of this enjoyable dogfighter. Now Unreal Engine 4-powered, precipitation forms when you head into clouds, turbulence strikes inside large cumulonimbus formations, and rain turns to ice if you linger, affecting aerodynamics. Despite this, handling remains accessible enough to make you feel like a top gun in aircraft spanning the Reagan-era to emerging DARPA technologies. There’s also a series of PS VR-exclusive missions that made us dry heave. Thankfully, they’re optional.
