    MINIGAME: The Politics of 'The Sims' and 'Rollercoaster Tycoon'

    MINIGAME: The Politics of 'The Sims' and 'Rollercoaster Tycoon'

    Every game is political. Simulation games like The Sims and Rollercoaster Tycoon are clear examples: there is no way to "win" these games, but there are definitely "right" and "wrong" ways to play.
