Games that are like Rollercoaster/Zoo Tycoon?

Theme Hospital is great. It has about the same qualities RCT had - a bit of (crude?) humour, freedom, all packed into the game's theme.

And I think it's more or less from the same gaming "era".

I can't believe no one's mentioned Ski Resort Tycoon. I wasted so many hours of my teenage years on that game.

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.

That makes sense. I don't think I played it very close to when it came out, so I just never ran into that.

Banished and Tropico 4 are kinda similar in a way that if you like RCT, there's no reason you wouldn't like these two. There are not that many games like that anymore.

If you are okay with non-Steam games, check out The Movies. Very similar to RCT and I'd say it's even better than RCT.

NoLimits is great if you only care about the roller coasters, and are willing to put a LOT of time into perfecting one. It's used by actual rollercoaster engineers, and because of that it's very advanced.
