Best flight sim is a VERY debatable topic. I noticed you said you wanted to get "online and play". You come from the land of first person shooters? If so, you might want to start on something simple. I would suggest Fighters Anthology. There are tons of planes to fly and many people to go against in online multiplayer at Jane's Combat.net. Others may suggest USAF but I disagree, due to its horrendously hard to control planes, and far less realism then Fighters Anthology, despite the much later date USAF was released. Sure, FA doesn't have the best graphics, nor realism that will impress pilots, but for quick dogfights and fun gameplay for the "weekend warrior", FA can't be beat.

Also, FA is dirt cheap. Twelve bucks at my Babbages, possibly less in other places.

For online play, I'd suggest you get a copy of something like Air Warrior III. It probably has the best online aeral dogfighting availible.

Jet Warrior Vietnam is just around the corner, and it will probably surpass Air Warrior III in online play.
