Zoo Tycoon is extremely my shit

Gaby Del Valle on how the single-player PC game helps her escape.

On paper, a video game about managing a business doesn't seem like it would appeal to kids. But in the late 90s and early 2000s, games like SimCity and RollerCoaster Tycoon somehow made profit margins and customer acquisition appealing. For Outline staff writer Gaby Del Valle, it was Zoo Tycoon, released in 2001, that got her hooked. In this installment of Extremely My Shit, a series where people get to the heart of why they love their famous distractions, Del Valle explains the particular joy found in playing the 2001 simulator.
