I definitely agree there. And CloD isn't that terrible now - I've played it a bit and did have fun, though for "old tech" I find RoF more enjoyable mainly because the FM "feels" better. I wouldn't have the first clue about whether it actually is better - at least not insofar as adequatly replicating the flight behaviour of the aircraft in question - but that's the feeling I get from it.
I'm hopeful for DCS though. What it'll basically take (I think, I least) is that people accept that getting a top-line simulation of WW2 simply will not be possible with "only" 40 to 60 dollars purchase price. The market is too small, even though WW2 is popular, to cover the costs of pushing the bar up further without charging more, and in this case I find it a nice model to let people pay for the specific things they want to use. Like, I'd imagine that if we get a DCS Fw-190, there will be people that want that plane but don't want the P-51D. Similarly, those that want the P-51D simply to fly it but aren't really interested in combat (and there's a LOT of those people, the success of A2A P-51D is a testament to this) will not be "forced" to use their money towards the development of a WW2 theatre.
the one big problem of course is - this will take time. But I think that in 4 years or so, when we look back, we'll see this as the time where huge things started happening.
