Roller Coaster Tycoon 2: a classic simulation
Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 is a simulation game developed by Chris Sawyer Productions and published by Infogrames. It was released in 2002 as the sequel to the original classic Roller Coaster Tycoon. In Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 players take on the role of an amusement park manager and are tasked with designing, building, and managing their own theme park.
This is one of the favourite games of my childhood. Scrap that, it's one of my favourite games at all. There's something in the micromanagement of an amusement park, in the designing of a new roller coaster, that glued me for hours on my chair in front of the computer. The sound effects, the pixellated graphics, everything is perfect. I don't think I completed every scenario available, but I can say with pride that I was able to manage the most difficult ones and create some awesome roller coasters.
