That is not exactly decompiling. I'd rather call it downloading the game. Decompiling is trying to read the machine code of compiled games (the original rollercoaster tycoon game for example) and create source code from it. What you described is how to get the (official OpenRCT2) source code of the game in visual studio from github. Both lead to source code, but the way of doing it is completely different.
