Now Choicest VGM moves on to another classic Sierra game, a game that took much inspiration from the board game, Game of Life. Jones in the Fast Lane allows up to four players to play hotseat against in each other in a game where you aim to max out things such as your happiness, money, career and education. Whoever makes it their first, wins the race.
The reason the game was called Jones in the Fast Lane was I believe for two reasons: (1) the name is a play on the well known saying "keeping up with the Joneses" as that is pretty much what you'll be spending most of the game doing and (2) the AI you play against is also called Jones (if you don't have any human players to play against).
Thanks to Sierra On-Line and Quest Studios for providing these memorable tracks.
