Just as the original Game Boy defined most of my childhood, RollerCoaster Tycoon became the center of my universe around 1999 as I began to discover a brand new world of computer games.

For those not familiar, RollerCoaster Tycoon allowed users to build and manage virtual theme parks (awesome, right?). The possibilities were seemingly endless, and I designed the most ridiculous coasters I could dream up, paired alongside other attractions such as ferris wheels, swinging ships and entertainers in costumes. My job was to keep my approval rating up (as determined by visitors) and build an exciting, functional park.
