**There's a slight buzzing sound in the intro this week. I didn't catch it until the episode was finished. The game chat portion of the show doesn't have the same problem. My apologies!**
DinoPark Tycoon was a game we originally brought up about a year ago when we covered Oregon Trail. It's another one of those games many us played in school in the early 90's, but unlike Oregon Trail, DinoPark was fun because it was fun, not just because you weren't learning something boring like math or science.
Not as many seem to have played this one growing up, and that's really too bad, because for a "educational" game, it's really not that bad. You build a theme park, make money, and of course, play with dinosaurs. Every kid's dream! Former Hall of Famer Mark McCue and I had a great time reminiscing about our failed business ventures in the dinosaur theme park world, and I really hope we did this game justice. There may not be much meat on the bone, but the meat that's there is top shelf.
And before we talk about our childhood bankruptcy proceedings, it's time for another edition of the 'Remember The Game Infamous Intro'!
This week, we talk about the possibility of running out of games to talk about on the podcast. I share a heartwarming story that a gaming Dad sent into the show. And is it bullshit that some games give you a "grade" when you finish them? (Yes, it is.)
PLUS, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring some of the best PC simulation games ever made - The Sims, Rollercoaster Tycoon, and Tropico!
