RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 doesn't look like much today, but the game was incredibly fun back in 2002. Sure, it's not the first title in the franchise, but Tycoon 2 isn't too much different from the original RollerCoaster Tycoon.
Yet, considering management and construction simulators are all the rage lately, playing through Tycoon 2 can make it easy to appreciate how far the genre has come in the past 15 years.
And if playing the game on Steam isn't your fancy, know there is an open-source re-implementation of the game called OpenRCT2, which includes multiplayer support, auto-saving, and bug fixes.
