Sid Meier, the creator of the original Railroad Tycoon, designed this spiritual successor to the series, 16 years after the original game. Railroad Tycoon II and 3 were not developed by Sid Meier, so this marks a fresh return by the famed designer to breath new life into the franchise.

Chris Sawyer's latest game on one hand is a sequel to one of the most loved classic games, Transport Tycoon. On the other hand, the minor tweaks and whistles don't hide the fact that it is virtually identical to its 10-year old predecessor. And with the free open-source project OpenTTD, Locomotion has been a tough sell.

C.E.O., aka AIV, is the fourth title in the A-Train series, and the follow-up to 1992's A-Train. The name change is significant as the series departs from its train management roots, incorporates other transport modes, and focuses strongly on stock trading, company mergers, and profit making.

Transport Tycoon - PC Games
1994
Chris Sawyer took the Railroad Tycoon formula from Sid Meier and greatly expanded it, with his trademark isometric world (which would be used later on in the hit series 'RollerCoaster Tycoon'). And although trains are an integral part of the game, players could also build and control a truck fleet, bus fleet, shipping lines and airports.

A-Train - PC Games
1992
Although still going strong in Japan with A-Train 8, this series by Artdink is perhaps best known for its classic train and economy simulator from the early DOS era. Perhaps a bit 'too' pessimistic for its own good, the only way to truly expand your train empire is to build hotels, golf courses, and gamble on the stock market in order to subsidize your fares and keep updated your aging fleet of locomotives.

The upcoming Zelda game?
Posted: 9 years, 1 month ago at Aug 6 11:45
For a game to make this list, it needs to include somewhat realistic operation of a locomotive, or be involved in some aspects of laying tracks or managing a train empire (buying locomotives, setting schedules, etc..). As far as I know, the new Zelda DS game just has a train as a method of transport, so no, it doesn't make the list. Unless Link would be shoveling coal or something like that ;)
