If no one has played this great classic space sim from the golden age of pc gaming (90s to mid 2000s) you owe it a chance. Descent Freespace, including the silent threat expansion and the sequel, Descent Freespace 2, are arguably the greatest games ever created in the space sim genre.

This guy has a pretty good video series on the games:

Descent worked great in confined spaces with level design to facilitate hectic dodging action. I always felt like the Freespace games didn't really work.

thats because freespace had nothing to do with descent, it just shared a name because they were trying to capitalize on it. Sorta like naming javascript after java
