Best PC Exclusive Games of 2019
Honorable Mention: Planet Zoo
Editor-in-Chief: Ed McGlone: From the minds of the fantastic Planet Coaster, Frontier Developments, comes Planet Zoo.
Just like what Planet Coaster did for the theme park management genre, Planet Zoo updates all the features people liked about the old Zoo Tycoon games, and puts them in a beautiful package with powerful creation tools for creative gamers to leverage.
There’s really no competition for Planet Zoo, but if there was, the sheer scope of what is possible within the sandbox of the game would be its biggest asset over other similar sim games.
That’s because the core elements of the genre: purchasing and breeding animals, managing finances, creating the layout, and attractinv visitors are all there and Planet Zoo takes it all to another level.
There are so many animals that you can have in your park ranging from lizards to lions. You can start your own breeding program and slowly create a genetic lineage that produces the most healthy and appealing animals. There’s a reason we also mention Planet Zoo in our best strategy and sim category too because there’s so much thinking and planning ahead.
If you’re into this kind of stuff like I am, then Planet Zoo is one of those games that you buy or build a PC for.
