    Hello
    So yea, I'm not talking about classic video game console where you can change the cartridge for other game
    I'm talking about video game made for tourism industry
    They are usually very advanced and more technological than those video game in your bedroom

    For example, I the best one I've tried was at Walt Disney World
    In short, we had a table with touch screen. We had to create a roller coaster
    There was restrictions, physics restriction
    There was also add-ons such as looping, reversed track, etc

    then, we saved our roller coaster, got a number
    and then, we individually ride in a big simulator machine where we were riding the roller coaster
    I remember doing lot of loop and such and the air flowing over my face
    apparently, looping werent real loop when seen from outside
    My mom was watching me riding it, and she said that the machine inclined backward, but it never did real loop
    But, from inside, it really felt like a loop :D

    Seriously, thats probably the best "tourist" video game i ever played
    Share your experience too :D

    there was also this one at Walt Disney world, it was called Spaceship Earth, it wasnt really a game, it was more like a quiz, but it was awesome. turns out I'm gonna be an astronaut when I grow up.

    Probably the only tourist game I've ever known of is Pyongyang Racer, a game made by the North Korean government as a way to get used to the city.
    Here is some footage. WARNING: The volume gets a bit too loud at some points, watch out.

    Yea, I vaguely remember, Idr a lot about it
    But I remember the UI and what the simulator looked like from inside

    IIRC, there was a crew of like 4 person per space ship and we had to choose a role
    Like, engineer, or such

    Shenmue.

    Google Maps april fools final fantasy version.

    I once watched over the shoulder of a friend doing a Titanic tour as well.

    Euro Truck Simulator.

    Being less silly I toured a 3d scan/model of a castle back when that was still something special. That is about as close I got.
