I'm looking for a game where I can fly around in a helicopter, but not necessarily a realistic simulator. I'd prefer to just get in the helicopter and fly around like Saints Row but with a bigger area to fly in. I tried Flight Simulator 2000 when it came out, was and still is far too complex for what I'm hoping for. Not really sure how else to describe this but hopefully someone has a suggestion. Thanks in advance.

GTAIV or wait for GTAV

I am sorry, but I have no suggestions.

Your post does make me sad though. Microsoft Flight would've been perfect for what you're asking. They were going to add helis at some point, but MS canned the project before it could really take off. It's more casual friendly than the previous MS Flight sims and would've been up your alley. Hawaii and Alaska are huge maps.

Pretty demanding but "take on helicopters" is pretty good. Same guys who did arma but the physics are a lot more realistic. Still plenty customizable skill wise and the feeling of speed is there at times.

arma series you can make your own missions so you can just fly around and its not to complex. Only other one are the more sim ones like take on helicopter or the dss shark.

This is an excellent suggestion. HUGE area to fly around, and the controls are very simple. The only thing you need to watch out for is people shooting at you, but as long as you stay away from certain areas and don't pick fights you should be fine.

Just Cause 2 (very easy to master)
ARMA series (much more sim-like, but still not completely and it can still be great fun)

Try Battlefield 3, strafing with mouse and keyboard is hard but other than that it's pretty fun.

SimCopter though. Fight fires n' stuff.
