It would seem so! I also played a lot of Comanche and I was so happy when Fate of Atlantis was available on steam, since I lost my old copy on floppy disks.  ;D

Though I love civilization now, I never actually had the game back then. I did play the bejeezus out of Sim City 2000 though.

I think Comanche was the first game that I had a joystick for. I remember playing Retaliator before then, but with keyboard. Or perhaps I bought it for X-wing. Can't remember. :P


X-Wing, that was cool yeah, and
Tie Fighter was even cooler, even as a kid i liked the empire more then the rebels ;)
