Today we pay homage to one of the best games ever. Roller Coaster Tycoon! When windows computers first came out the best games were always the Sim games. NOT The Sims, but the Sim games like Sim City, Roller Coaster Tycoon, etc. Certainly The Sims were great games, but I always liked the Tycoon and City games.
Who can forget jacking up the price of umbrellas to $10 each at the Information Kiosk when the weather in the corner started to get cloudy? Rape the guests of their money when it rained because they were too scared to get wet. How else would you make money in a thunderstorm? Guests were too scared to go on the rides! Too bad you couldn’t set them up for an auto insurance quote, or some sort of accident protection insurance for the park to make extra cash at the time.
Why do people have their Handymen mow the grass in that game? Nobody cares. Damn vandals don’t think too much of your park benches. Dirtiest Park in the Country Award for those too cheap to hire good help. Damn handymen would never keep their paths clean even when you had them on set tiles. That big pile of puke could sit there for hours and he would just keep walking ALMOST to it and then turn around and go back the other way.
Guest Torture was a must:
Man…what a great game. Pretty easy to find right now too for immediate play if you know what I mean .
