    AoE1 was it just getting started, but has flaws.

    AoE2 is one of the greatest games ever made, yes.

    AoE3 just didn't really work which was a real shame.

    I think AoE2 is probably my favourite RTS game ever, Company of Heroes is right up there too though.
    Bang on. CoH is simple but it works so well. I had high hopes for CoH2 but it's awful kind of like how I felt AoE3 was when compared to AoE2.

    I would say AoE is much simpler than CoH, and personally I prefer 2, bar the whole encouraging blobbing.

    Age of Empires 2 was the best AOE I played & it was great. But Command & Conquer Red Alert 2/Yuri's Revenge & Generals/Zero Hour are better!

    I think it's hard to compare Age of Empires with other RTS games because they're pretty different. I still play a lot of AoE2HD and Age of Mythology online. Never really liked the third Age of Empires.

    The thing is, this game is almost 16 years old. And there are still ~ 6000 people playing each day. 2000 on the old version, 4000 on the steam version.

    Can anyone remember the cheats? What was it, robin hood for gold, lumberjack for wood, can't remember stone, and then cheese steak jimmys for food? Oh and my favourite - 'How do I turn this on' which got you a cobra car

    I didn't hate 1 or 3, but I agree, they didn't compare to 2, can't quite remember what was wrong with AOE 3, but it just wasn't the same was it.
    Marco Polo is forever burned in to my mind from AoE
