Will you create a family friendly wonderland or a murder park of death? This is the question I ask myslef every time I start a new game. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum allows you to create your dream theme park, complete with selling overpriced souvenirs and cleaning vomit filled sidewalks. Let your creativity run wild as you hire mechanics that get lost if they aren't on a footpath, hire creepy mascots and overall ruin the childhoods of thousands of children. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum truly is simulation gaming at its finest. 10/10 would buy a box of Froot Loops if it contained this game.

Charging everyone $10 for using the bathroom...
Placing bears and tigers outside animal enclosures, watching people run in terror...
Forcing people onto unfinished rides that lead to their demise...
Charging $75 for chicken and $100 for a hamburger...
Trapping everyone and the poor inspector in a hole in which they cannot escape from...
The ability to have the world's most dangerous park while yet no one seems to care...
