Just in case you didn't see anything on RCT4 yet, please don't give them money for this travesty.

According to the devs, the PC version will be nothing like the mobile version.

I find it really weird that it's so hard to find a game of the same genre and quality of Roller Coaster Tycoon. I'm with capgamer in a sense-- RCT is not my favorite series, but I've definitely never played anything in that genre that I feel comes close to it.

I don't get the dislike for RCT3 though. I think that game is easily on par with the rest of the series.


Probably because it ran like crap on pretty much everything when it was released, which soured a lot of people to the game. It runs fabulous on current hardware these days, but I remember back when it came out it was pretty terrible.

Would you really trust them after that travesty?

Thrillville: Off the Rails is very similar to RCT2 but WAY more expansive.
Just...if you want to play it with a mouse and you have a second screen...you may need to unplug the second screen.

mjc0961: He's not going to change. He loves the attention too much. Your best bet is to ignore him.

Anyway. I don't hate Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 and in fact I don't really even have many specific complaints about it, but I've definitely put a LOT less time into it and found the original RCT to be much more rewarding. I don't know what it is, since the engine in some ways was so limited in the original game and designing rollercoasters was even a bit dumb because the second you had a steep drop for more than 3 meters your guests would be like OH MY GOD I CAN'T GO ON THIS RIDE! Whatever the reason, though, the original RCT is my game of choice for this genre.

Anyway, there are a handful of Tycoon games worth playing but I do feel like most of them are older. I really liked SimGolf back in its day, and I don't know if Dungeon Keeper counts as a Tycoon game but if it does then everybody really liked the original of that game as well.

Actually, I think part of the reason why I put less time into RCT3 may be the fact that I was able to import my rollercoasters from RCT1 and that's pretty much all I did. It was too easy to cheat myself out of the experience.
