Well, I am a huge Rollercoaster Tycoon fan, so I knew that before I had even finished reading the sentence.

A fan of the first two games anyway. The third was okay, but we won't speak about the insult that is World. Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 is probably my most played game ever, if it would've kept time over the years (and across all my computers), I'm sure it would've been thousands, maybe even ten thousand hours by now.

Yeah the first two Rollercoaster Tycoon games are awesome.  I could have easily have put the 2nd game on my list instead of the first.  In my head I kind of lump them together.  I didn't really appreciate what I had until the later sequels came out.  Apparently, the programmer did things with the game that no one else could do because he wrote in in assembly language.  The game was really ahead of its time and possibly still is.  That's why it's the highest sim game on my list.  

The second game will also be the highest sim game on my list.

It is indeed timeless. I guess it's the, basically, perfect balance of freedom for the player and complexity/depth. Most other games fail at perfecting this balance. I have never tried Planet Coaster, the defacto RCT successor, though.
