    Just because YOU are puzzled, doesn't mean you're correct. Your premise is fundamentally flawed.

    And your thread is in the correct forum now. Let us leave it at that.

    Seriously !? You need justification ?
    Aoe is a legend of the rts genre, up there with Starcraft and c&c.

    Just because something is legendary doesn't necessarily mean it's good. Even considering they're from over a decade ago I wouldn't say they're than great having played 2 (w/ expansion) & 3, I would still put some of the newer ones well ahead of it. It never really clicked.

    AoE is one of the greatest games I've ever played.

    If I'm not studying, then I'm on AOE/AOM

    Only the 2nd one is worth playing (Including expansions if you so wish).

    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.

    Certainly one of my favourite games of all time no doubt and I can probably attribute my love of history to that game as well with the campaigns, like Genghis Khan, Saladin, Joan of Arc, William Wallace, brilliant (even if there were some campaign missions even to this day i can't complete :lol: )

    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.

    "ilovethemonkeyhead" is guaranteed fun too!

    The issue with Age of Empires 3 was that it just departed entirely from what the series was about with the introduction of shipments and the RPG-like elements. Someone with a top level civ had a large advantage over someone who had a low level civ. It is by no means a bad game, it has its moments and is actually good fun, but I hate that it's called Age of Empires because for someone that started playing the first game in '96 and kept buying them on release day it hurt for the game to be such a departure from the original two.

    I still play the game today, well multiplayer at least. It is the best RTS game. You have to be quick and always 1 step ahead of your enemy otherwise you'd most likely lose. The custom scenarios aren't that bad either. When you have 8 players on a world like giant map it gets interesting .

    That's true of any good RTS though, not just AoE
