What kind of business would make a cool and original tycoon game?

Asked by poisonedantidote (21638points) January 16th, 2011

There are a lot of tycoon games out there, and it seams like they let you do almost anything, from running a small bakery shop all the way up to running a giant transportation empire.

I my self am working on a little tycoon game of my own, one where you run a stamp collector/dealer shop. While working on the game, I have started to realize how I could adapt the core of the game to make other tycoon games, so I decided to ask this.

What other real life businesses would make a good and original theme for a tycoon game? It could be more or less anything, such as a mechanic’s repairs shop or a dentists surgery. It does not even have to be a business, a government organization such as NASA could also work.

Hotel could be good, Casino, uhh University or school, I’d like a modern-day version of SM’s Pirates haha… maybe a really in depth one, which emulated all facets of business and global markets, so you could build a trans-sector business empire like some of those Japanese companies i.e. Matsushita (Panasonic), running out of ideas now… hmmm banking & finance would be fun, but itd be hard to see where normal gameplay stops, and the cheating begins, hurr hurr….

Organised crime. It’d be called The Syndicate or something similarly sinister sounding.
