The tycoon genre of games is a popular one, and for good reason. The accessibility of a good interface mixed with the appeal of creating and managing your own business is a recipe for an instant hit. Not many games, however, can be truly said to be classics of the tycoon genre. As far as we know, there's only three games which really deserve that distinction. The first is Railroad Tycoon, one of Sid Meier's first games and the father of the modern business game. The second is Transport Tycoon, which was created by Chris Sawyer as a more in-depth transportation simulation than Railroad Tycoon. The final game, and the focus of this article, is Rollercoaster Tycoon, one of the most popular and enduring tycoon games of all time. It has snatched hold of the casual and hardcore market alike with excellent gameplay and interface, and is still popular to this day.
