Tycoon games in general. Rollercoaster Tycoon series. School Tycoon. Mall Tycoon series. Prison Tycoon series. Etc.

Does anyone here like them aside from myself? If so, which ones are your favorites? Which ones did you dislike? Discuss!

I think that out of all of the Tycoon games, the most enjoyable to me would be SeaWorld Adventure Parks Tycoon. It was fun, but the main drawback was that it was far too short of a game.

Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 isn't too shabby either, especially considering you can actually "ride" the coasters and other rides.

Other good ones would be Fairy Godmother Tycoon, Big Biz Tycoon, and a few others I can't remember at the moment.

The worst Tycoon game I've played was Animal Paradise Tycoon. It's basically a small zoo builder, but seems to be designed for little kids. And when I mean little, I mean 7-10 maybe. I just didn't like it. Far too simple.

I was always more of a "Sim" guy myself, like sim theme park, sim city of coarse, the sims, and of coarse, the amaizing sim ant were you get to raise armys of ants and atack other ant armies, how can you beat that?

I actually like both. Anything simulation or strategy-related, just about.

You ever play sim ant though? it was one of the few insect war games, and one of the few action sim games.

I hate the Prison and Mall Tycoon games; they were half-assed and lacked the polish that Rollercoaster and Hospital Tycoon had. Hell, Prison Tycoon had so many bugs and was barely even functioning.

I've never even heard of Transport Tycoon. What do you do in that? Like, transport stuff and that's it? Is it any good or worth checking out?

Lol I had no idea there were so many. Roller Coaster Tycoon was fun as hell, I should reinstall it.

There was another one called like DinoPark tycoon or something. It was old. Interesting, but kinda hard to know wtf you were supposed to be doing.

Oh, I think DinoPark Tycoon was a DOS Game. I've seen it around, but I have yet to try it out.

But yeah, there are TONS of Tycoon games. Lemonade Tycoon, XXX Tycoon (Don't get any ideas, I tried it. It sucks.), Airport Tycoon, Trailer Park Tycoon, Tabloid Tycoon, Casino Tycoon, TV Tycoon, Coffee Tycoon, Moon Tycoon, Monopoly Tycoon, and like 50+ others, not including sequels and expansions. I've tried most of them though. SeaWorld Adventure Parks Tycoon and Rollercoaster Tycoon, as mentioned before, are up there as the most entertaining though.

Coffee Tycoon actually isn't that bad. :oscar:

But nearly all of the Tycoon games play the same way. Just different themes.

And yeah, wasn't planning on trying out DinoPark Tycoon. It looks like crap.

Run a transport business, making railways, roads, airports and docks. Its freeware so you can find a copy pretty easily, and the file isn't big. Check it out if you want.
