I Really Want To Play Rollercoaster Tycoon

Do you guys remember RCT? Well, if you don’t, that really sucks for you. This game sucked hours out of my life — my eyes were glued to the screen, my head lost in the maze of paths, queue lines, and roller coasters. The intro song will send me back to when I was using Windows ME on my Hewlett Packard desktop with 128mb of RAM, and probably less than 48GB of hard drive. I soldiered on, defeating each scenario with determination and grit, until I decided it was time to build my own park. I downloaded an editor and created a completely flat park, owning each and every single parcel of land, set entry fee at $0, and built it from the ground up. Coaster after coaster, themed section after themed section, I toiled on, hiring crews of mechanics and handymen to keep the park running, micromanaging them to keep efficiency at 100%, hired entertainers and placed them at long queues. Eventually, I would throw unhappy and poor guests into a small pool of water I’d later come to call “Dead Pool” not knowing there is a Marvel character named Deadpool. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to watch this video. TC mark
