Watch Grown Men Spend 40 Minutes Trying To Fly A Video Game Fighter Jet

In this clip from Giant Bomb, three experienced video game players try, and in a prolonged and constant state fail, to get off the ground in hardcore flight sim A-10C Warthog.

Not that anyone here will be making fun of them for that. If you've ever played one of these games or watched the above video, you'd know they actually do OK to eventually get it flying after around 40 minutes.

I mean, with three of them, they cut down on some time. If that was me by myself, I'd be there a good 3-4 days just looking for the tape deck.

    ha took me 40 hours to learn to fly this plane god bless dcs :)

    Thank God flying an A-10 in battlefield 3 isnt that hard.

    This reminds me of the old F-16 sims...loved that series

    After watching all that I REALLY want this. It'll be so beyond me but my X-52Pro has been gathering dust for too long now.

      get it best 40 bucks you will ever spend

        Based on your comment and the words of Robbo2332 and kuroneko, I think I will invest in this.

    That was really entertaining, I've always loved the A-10 but I wouldn't have the patience to learn it...

    This is an awesome sim but getting it to fly is not even the hard part. Navigation and actually killing shit is a bitch lol

    I'm always awed by A10C. The first few startups in full sim are pretty daunting and slow, but once you get past that hurdle, the challenge is nothing compared to actually hitting stuff on the ground...

    BF3 lied! I thought you can just jump in and hit W+left shift! D:

    I've just this up and running in Bootcamp on my Mac, needed a Windows keyboard attached, but it runs like a dream.

    Tonight I'm going to try and get it running on dual monitors..
