What is really fun are the scenarios. They make it so you can't you use everything and have to make due with what they give you. The one that I played that I really enjoyed required me to trade a lot in order to provide services for the city. I didn't even have to ability to produce fleece. The only source I had was importing. Which meant that I needed to make money, which meant I needed to export. Not being your own self sustaining economy makes the game very different. It feels like you're almost running a real country.
I also purchased Pharoah. I loved that game back in the day. I haven't gotten time to play it again, because I've had a limited time to try and get it to work. currently, whenever I start it, it only shows a black screen. I push F5-F6, and I can get into the title screen, but after it goes into a cut scene, I can't see it anymore. I haven't tried too hard, as I want to "finish" my Zeus binge before I move onto another system of game.
I'm entertaining the notion of buying Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 again. That was a great game. Maybe I'll just download it, but for $10, hopefully they get a small cut of the money.
