Roller Coaster Tycoon has to be the best one.




Nintendo still doomed?

Roller Coaster Tycoon by far. #1 is my favorite game of all time, #2 was a very worthy successor, while #3 is shunned. :/

In case you don't know, my user name's based off of Roller Coaster Tycoon.

Why didn't you like 3? 

RCT 3 was horrible.

The franchise was meant to be in 2D. The 3D broke the fun.

But you could RIDE the ride.  I loved all the the RCT games, but 3 is my favorite.

Yes but riding your own ride was kind of an old concept. It was already used in games like Sim Theme Park and Sim Coaster.

I'll use this as an explanation of why I didn't like RCT3

 

RCT3 allowed you to ride rides, yes. I was very excited, but then I found it came at a cost. The simplicity of building stuff went away. I could not build roller coasters with a tenth of the excitement and complexity as the previous two games. This took away the fun of riding rides. The lack of emphasis if completing objectives made it feel too "sandbox" like. I know it's good to have a sandbox mode for the creative, but there was no challenge and monitering.

Hopefully, there will be a game that has the rideing your rides and custumization of RCT3, along with the challenges and simplicity of RCT2, and most importaintly, the magic of RCT.

I never really liked Roller Coaster tycoon but I could appreciate it and see why people did like it. Not my cup of tea.

I do like Zoo Tycoon though.



Pixel Art can be fun.

My favourite were Theme Park and Transport Tycoon. Lost countless hours on those games!



Theme hospital and Roller Coaster Tycoon are mine!



Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 and Theme Hospital kicked ass.
RCT 2 was ok.

A game I'm developing with some friends:

It is largely a technical exercise but feedback is appreciated.
