Best video game spaceships

Video games have had a long love affair with space. Whether that's because it's the ultimate story telling environment, full of new worlds can await your exploration, or because it's easy to animate big black spaces, is beyond our knowledge

We've spent a lot of time flying, shooting and dodging our way around the countless galaxies, a process made all the more enjoyable (and frustrating) by the spaceships we've explored them in. This list highlights the best video game spaceships we've ever flown or fought, from 2D masterpieces to modern monsters. We decided not to include ships based on designs from films (so no X-Wings), sticking to gaming originals.
