3 Games Every Entrepreneur Will Love

Written by Marcello TBL


Even the world’s richest entrepreneurs love gaming too if the likes of Elon Musk or Yoshikazu Tanaka are anything to go by. In fact, some of their favorite games have nothing to do with business at all! Nevertheless, the three games we have on this list are not just for entrepreneurs who love gaming in general. These are titles which will also stimulate your business intellect with built-in elements of actual business development and management.

Anno 1800 (2019)

What if you were in charge of designing, building, managing, protecting, developing, and growing an entire Western European city in its entirety? That is exactly what Anno 1800 by Blue Byte offers. The fact that Anno 1800 also has an early 19th Century naval combat management aspect to it is a bonus. It adds a feeling of classic board games like battleship to it. In this city-builder RTS, you will not just be starting and managing a business or even a conglomerate, you will be the entrepreneur of your own city and everything in it.

The visuals are captivating in Anno 1800, but they will tax your laptop’s hardware, as will any other recent strategy and management game portrayed on such a massive scale. Get one of the Lenovo home business laptops if you are in the market for a new business PC that will also let you play games. The ThinkPad P1 Workstation will chew through intense workloads and the latest video games with equal ease.

Planet Coaster (2016)

A game by Frontier Developments, Planet Coaster picks up right from where the developers left the series with Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 in 2005 (last expansion). 11 long years later, Planet Coaster came out in 2016 and amped everything up to a whole new level of thrilling amusement park management.

The sandbox mode in particular comes highly recommended over the Career mode because of how much possibility it holds for creative entrepreneurs to explore. When it first came out in 2016, the game still was rough around the edges, but it is at its finest version in 2022. If you ever wanted to learn how to manage an amusement park, Planet coaster is probably the best simulation to learn from.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 (2021)

Another entry from Frontier Developments, Jurassic World Evolution 2 is not necessarily a better game than its predecessor, but it has improved far too much on the graphics and animation to ignore. Dinosaurs have never looked better in a video game and that is a fact, provided you have the right kind of power to see all that prehistoric goodness!

At its core and beyond the visuals, Jurassic World Evolution 2 is still the same construction and business management simulation that we saw find its footing with Jurassic World Evolution in 2018. If you don’t necessarily need the most realistic visuals and would settle for a more complete experience, the original Jurassic World Evolution with all its DLCs come recommended. Wait for a Steam sale and you should be able to pick up all these games with their DLCs at anything thing between 25% to 70% discount! You can also use G2A to pick up genuine game codes at a discounted price for almost any PC gaming client out there.
