AGE IV destroyed my Childhood

As a kid my brother bought Age III. i instantly felt in love. After many years the Remake was released and i loved it.
But after i played the Closed Beta of Age IV it isnt the same anymore… Every time when i start a battle i feel bored very fast and quit it… So a part of my Childhood just died… knowing that the game won’t be released until october 28th drives me crazy.
I realy hope that the Devs know what they done to me… How dare You?

I’ll translate OPs post. He likes aoe4 so much that aoe3 feels dull and boring now. Oct 28th can’t come soon enough!

Ooohhh I feel silly now. I thought this was just pitchforks in hands “this game sux”. I’m so sorry OP, I share the sentiment :sweat_smile:

Thanks. I literally thought it was an overdramatic speech about AoE4 ruining age of empires and his childhood.

Same but instead of AoE3 it’s AoE2 for me. Didn’t touch it even once after playing the AoE4 beta.

i feel this, though not on the childhood so much. I didnt like Age3 when it first came out but i started playing it recently with my dad to try and get him back into games and it was fun - until i tried the AoE4 beta. Now i dont want to fire up 3 anymore at all. Cmon October!

Listen , just in case that you are basically saying : Aoe3 was my childhood and now every time I play aoe3 I am bored, that is normal.

I have a good history about how did I find my favorite franchise (aoe)

Resume : my dad .

And my first aoe game was aoe3 , so yeah that game is also part of my childhood and I think that the problem is nostalgia.

I honestly don’t know what to say , but I think that feeling is because nostalgia . Aoe3 was my childhood , and… omg , that fu**ing good feeling of joy . Now the joy of playing aoe4 is the same as the first time I played aoe3 . It’s it’s… Just nostalgia , you just can’t fight with that. Go for the game that you like.

Im now actually feel the same way as you feel , I’m “frustrated”…

For me the only thing that it works is to fight the nostalgia of aoe3 with this : Age of Empires IV Announce Trailer - YouTube

Cute :blush: Deep inside, we all want our childhoods to be “destroyed”. I also think AoE3 is more fun, though AoE2 is a rock-solid game.

I haven’t played it yet since I’m not in beta. I don’t really play the AoE games much anymore but I do play HD version on steam with friends for the nostalgia. All of the games still hold a special place in my heart for their own reasons. They are all separate games and feel unique yet connected at the same thing. I hope AoE4 delivers on this expectation

so first of all my english is bad but i also wanted to troll a bit, to make fun of some hysterical ppl
WOLOLO
and yes i realy like or even love AoE IV…

I think thats the point too for example my first console was N64 (we got it around 2000) and till then my fav. game is LoZ Majoras Mask. Sometimes i play it after a long time and i enjoy it but when i play it more frequently i get bored… because the nostalgic memories is what matters most.

But in this case, ok i dont played AoE3 that mutch in the last months but when i did it was fun. Since i played the AoE4 Beta it kinda fells wrong/strange/weird (hard to explane) and also boring. Maybe because the gameplay is a huge step(technicaly 16years apart) and it felt just right and more advanced…

As a child, I enjoyed playing AoE 2, many years later the sequel AoE 3 was released, and it destroyed my childhood and put an end to the Age series for many years.
When I played AoE 3 it wasn’t right, every time I tried to play it I got bored and quit it, so part of my childhood just died. This terrible choice of an unpopular and not interesting era, these nightmarish decks of cards (am I in Hearthstone?), A terribly boring storyline with silly magical sources, simplified gameplay, shrinking cities that now do not look like cities, but look like time bases or villages.
I really hope the developers know what they did to me and my childhood. How dare they?

Age of 3 De is getting pure classic for me. Devs are giving support this game after even de release. People say that age of 4 will fail but ı dont think so. I believe that age of 4 will take good support after release and it will be another pure classic :slightly_smiling_face:
