** Unless you aim for the "green ending", by not doing anything to keep environmentalism from spreading (i.e. systematically skip "oiling" the representatives) and letting the oil demand regularly outstrip the oil supply in order to let environmental bills get passed (only opening new wells to placate your shareholders and avoid getting fired). This troper used this strategy to get that ending as soon as 1975, without even having reached peak oil in Texas.

* CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption: The game forces you to be a absolutely evil jackass. When the Ogoni start protesting and blocking your oil fields, can you find a peaceful solution? No, your only option is to bribe the government to Kill 'Em All. And you cannot get to invest in Iraq without manipulating the US government invading them. And lets not even get in to the part about the environment.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption : Of the four endings, one involves you getting fired and another one involves the end of the world (and text saying "you spend your last days in darkness, pondering your role in creating this mess"). The third involves a happy ending for everyone ''except'' the VillainProtagonist player; an ending in which reduced reliance on fossil fuels renders the oil industry less important. The last involves keeping the western world addicted to oil but not actually supplying it, crashing the GDP ''so hard'' that modern civilzation slowly collapses due to a permanently ruined economy. It does not appear to be possible to make the game last forever without eventually running into one of these endings.

* MultipleEndings: In the "best" ending, the US breaks its oil addiction and converts to clean energy, and you go out of business. In another, as the world runs out of oil, WorldWarIII breaks out for the last remaining reserves, and you hide in your bunker to ride it out. In yet another, all of Western civilization collapses due to the economic strife you caused and because you can no longer supply enough oil to keep it running. Finally, you can simply be fired before reaching Peak Oil if you fail to bring in profits.

As you may have guessed by now, this game takes [[{{Anvilicious}} a very particular view]] of the oil industry. At the same time, however, what other game affords you the opportunity to play as a {{card carrying|Villain}} ''{{Captain Planet|AndThePlaneteers}}'' villain, LaughingMad at your computer while poisoning lakes and killing caribou?
