    Default The Age Of Empires Thread

    The Age Of Empires series remains one of the best-known game franchises to this date. It was highly influential on other games of its genre, the real-time strategy genre, especially the second installment, Age Of Empires II:The Age Of Kings. The main company behind it, Ensemble Studios however closed down, and the series seemed to be finished too. However, the series recently has had a revival through the Age Of Empires II HD Edition which released on April 9. Discuss the Age Of Empires series here!

    This was one of my favorite PC games! I've only played the second and third installments. I'll consider buying the HD edition when it comes out on Steam.

    I too have played only 2 and 3. The updated HD graphics look great, don't they? Any hopes for AoE4?

    Unlikely, as Microsoft closed down Ensemble Studios after Halo Wars. Perhaps if the HD re-release is well recieved, Microsoft may bring a team together. It would be interesting to see what a new team would do with the franchise though.

    I've played age of empires 2 and the expansion and its the game that got me into real-time strategy and strategy gaming in general, as well as ignited my interest in History, especially the medieval period. Also its one of my favourite games of all time

    Still got Age of Empires 3 on my Mac, which i play every now and then. While I like the home city and its graphics are way better then Age of Empires 2, it never really had the same feel and theme of Age of Empires 2. Unfortunately I've lost the disc, but when I get my new Laptop and the HD edition comes out, I am getting it as soon as possible.

    AOE 3 is garbage.

    I am very excited for the AoE2 re-release though, will definitely get that!

    Different opinions for different people. I feel AoE3's feel is quite different from AoE2, at least I myself play them both in a different way. And I think you all must hate Age Of Empires Online...right?

    I absolutely loved the first two Age of Empires games. Heck, the second one is still among my favorite games of all time. AoE3 was alright in its own regard, although I couldn't really get into it. AoEO honestly flat-out disappointed me. :/

    I occasionally play AoE2 with a couple friends via Hamachi; 4v4s are so fun and hectic. We haven't been able to play multiplayer as much recently, but we plan on trying Forgotten Empires next time we're all available.
