This page features my personal favourite games from the genre with a mixture of options (free, paid and browser based) that will ensure everyone can find a game that suits his or her needs.
The games listed on this page offer many different experiences from rollercoasters to lemonade to being a fairy godmother. The ones on this page feature a review of the game, a video of the gameplay and any relevant links to play or purchase the game.
With so many tycoon games out there, I couldn't possibly include them all, as such I've limited this list to the 25 games that I consider to be the best. For more recommendations, start with the great collection available at Big Fish Games or for free online options try the high quality online games by Upjers.

1 - My Sunny Resort
Create Your Own Resort Corporation
If creating a theme park, restaurant, city or business isn't something that interests you, then a resort might just be the next best thing. My Sunny Resort not only gives you control over a unique beach side resort but also staff, finances and even individual rooms in your resort.
It also avoids the pitfalls of other similar games with less down time thanks to the way you'll have to interact with your guests to maximise the amount of money you make from each one. This can be as simple as assigning them to a more expensive room that meets their needs, selecting a restaurant for them to dine out or an activity to extract the last few dollars.
This intense amount of customisation will have you spending hours on your resort as you go from a single room to an island full of volleyball courts and high profile rooms with all the luxuries you could ever want a resort.
