Age of Empires is a very tricky strategy game. I've studied the game, did the math, and looked at the data to hone my skills and want to play some big games. Who here plays this?

Panda and I just talked today about how nice and immersive this game's soundtrack is. As someone who is a fan of both strategy and simulation games, I definitely recommend Age of Empires II, even though I'm not very good at it, haha.

age of empires 2 is incredible. ive played it for about my entire life, and its still interesting and exciting every time i play. even better is that the hd edition still gets updates and rebalances, and has added a ton of new content and civilizations to play with. multiplayer is easy, though a little hard to play with people who have bad internet, and its very fun to fight your friends, ally together to fight a big enemy, and betray ace. i'd recommend to just about anybody, lots of people who usually aren't fans of strategy games enjoy it. it's very easy to learn how to play and enjoy yourself while doing it.

it's 20 bucks on steam, but it goes on sale regularly. check it out!!

If you're not playing Goths you're doing it wrong.

I don't know about the Goths, they're not true American bros and pros like the Huns or the Mayans. Japanese Samurai put up a big fight, but nothing beats Mayans plumed Archers. Cuts through BTB's big dumb Teutonic Knights like butter.

Actually the game is from 1999, so you might be able to play! There might be some settings you'll need to turn off that came with the HD edition though.

Goth Huskarls beat out the weak Mayan archers with their invincibility to all arrows. You have yet to face the wrath of the Goths.

didnt have a very good time with the goths. they can build infantry quick enough, but it seems theyd only really be good against beginners who you could easily pick off without worrying about your own town. not being able to put up those walls is a BIG disadvantage.

Layer your palisade walls at least 2 or 3 times and use houses as padding. If you play on the defensive early game or at least bully your opponents enough you can survive easily into the late game. Focus on flank attacks with huskarls. If you aren't defending yourself properly against rogue Aztec or Teuton infantry, you will get annihilated, but that's your own fault for not giving yourself good defense. Generally speaking Goths are not good for the dark age rush but you can defend yourself from it easily. The only time the Goths really lack is when naval combat is involved, but there are a lot of civs that befall from that anyway.
