Humble Bundle has been doing these types of themed bundles for quite a while now, and even though not all of them have been very exciting, I must admit its a much better system than just piling on a random mishmash of games and hoping they gel together. As for the currently ongoing Humble Bundle, it features games that quite firmly belong to the tycoon/simulator genre.

The bundle contains 7 games in total, of which the most notable are Train Simulator 2016, RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe, Democracy 3, and Big Pharma (the one pictured in the image above). As for the rest, they are games I've basically never heard of, so don't take my ignorance as some sort of condemnation. That aside, here's the full list of games, as well as the pricing tier they appear in:

Pay what you want:

 Train Simulator 2016

 RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe

 Out of the Park Baseball 17

Pay more than the average of $4.19 to unlock:

 Democracy 3: Collector's Edition

 Car Mechanic Simulator 2015

 Big Pharma

Pay $12 or more to unlock:

 Youtubers Life (Early Access)

While I know absolutely nothing about half of these games, I do know enough about to rest to say that the second tier is probably worth the purchase. RollerCoaster Tycoon is a well known classic, and for good reason, while Big Pharma and Democracy 3 are pretty damn solid games in their own right - though they do have a couple of problems that keep them from being as timeless as RollerCoaster Tycoon. And finally there's Train Simulator 2016, a game that I'm sure you already know whether you will love or hate. I've personally only played it for one hour before realizing I have no interest in it, but I'm fully aware that it holds a surprisingly loyal fan base of train enthusiasts, so it must be doing something right even after all these years.

This bundle will be live for another 12 days, so while you still have plenty of time to decide, try not to completely forget about it! And if you do decide to grab it, have fun!
