    dug this game up from the graveyard, played it for about 6 hours lol. Who else remembers this sweet game? I like to make power launched coasters that shoot the people into the air until they crash and burn into the ground!!!!

    I love roller coaster tycoon. I've put some serious hours into that game. Comparing it to crysis seems a little unfair, apples and oranges. They're too different. Compare it to any other tycoon, and it takes the cake easily. Compare it to simcity, thats a close one, and I would pick simcity. Compare it to a completely different type of game in almost every way possible made almost a decade later, and well, then its just up in the air.

    One of the best games ever. I spent so many hours playing that, building the most dope roller coasters, and traping people in fences, then i played Zoo Tycoon, that got me hooked 2 :)

    I loved roller coaster tycoon 2. I still have it, I put countless hours in the sandbox mode, I loved it. Tycoon 3 was a huge letdown to me, one of the rare few that didn't transition well into 3d.

    i love them all, but no one rides my rides in 3, i found the underground limit lol

    I took a hyper coaster 400 feet in the air then a drop to 1000 feet underground, but no one would ride it, i guess 1400foot drop is to big

    I can't get RCT Deluxe to install (the one with both expansions) in Vista. Says its incompatible /cry. I might have to dual-boot XP now...Anyone have any luck with RCT in Vista?

    The first game is the best imo. Superb, and it's still great. :)

    I enabled it to Windows 95 mode, 98 mode, and XP mode. Nothing worked. Says something about Invalid Windows Driver or something after I load up the game.

    the games more fun than crysis and thats all that counts

    crysis is a good game just a little bit too boring unless you go and make fun like steal the boats and punch stuff in strength mode

    if i had to choose a game tho id play civilization or sim city 4 every time i play sim city 4 i get bored uninstall it and wish i hadnt

    you gave me an idea where for a thread
