I remember how amazed I was when I played multiplayer in AOE I & II AOK LOL


#51

I’m 8 years old, my brother just bought this amazing game that I can’t help but sit beside him to watch him play. Better than anything on TV. (It wasn’t until 3 years later that I could actually play, but I enjoyed it anyway)


#52

Used to play this all the time on the MSN Gaming Zone for many years. Always loved the choson wars.


#53

ShRoOmS or _MyStiKaL here…

Cho Wars and Ns here we come :smiley: I was too poor to get a good enough computer for AoE2 so I always played AoE/RoR. One of the top best RTS games ever made.

1 > 2 forever


#54

So many memories! I can remember playing in the zone for hours on end!


#55

Hope this ressurects aoe/ror! Hope we can run tourneys like AOC on voobly. Time to call back old elite players!

I first learned about Age of Empires from that foldout ad that showed a beautiful, peaceful village and asked “What more could you want?” When you unfolded it, it showed the same village under attack and said, “An army would be nice.”

I also remember one pundit claiming the game would fail before it came out because it was being made by a studio of nobodies and the name sounded too much like “Age of Vampires”. What an idiot.


#57

This game was my entire childhood. Honestly cannot wait for this game to come out!


#58

we played AOE with friends or in family, about hours and hours

  • sunlight -> no
  • coffee -> yes
  • pizza -> yes
  • beer -> yes
