Gamespot UK lists the 100 best games of the millennium. Age of Empires was listed as #24. It was an interesting list, ranging from #1 (Civilization) to #100 (Pong.)

Here is the website URL for you to see for yourselves.

Wouldn't you have put AoE much nearer the top?? I would have.

Anyway, lovers of AoE, what would be your top 5 games - not ones that you think you should pick, but 5 that you really enjoyed with a passion?

Mine are (in order)

1. Age of Empires (of course,and including RoR, AoK, TC)

2. Myst

3. Tetris

4. Ants (a multiplayer RTS game on MSN Zone!)

5. Worms Armageddon

It would be fun to know your top 5.

1. UrMud (entirely in java, so works on both linux and windows)
2. AoE/RoR
3. Caesar (can run on linux using wine - so does starcraft btw)
4. Simcity (available for linux at - along with civilization, and a bunch of others)
5. Ogre Battle (nintendo game, but such excellent gameplay I just had to include it)
And, umm, err... yeah. There's a bunch of classics I didn't include, which are important for historical reasons...

lol, yes, Wolfenstien. wolf 3D started the whole shoot 'em up trend. if it weren't for that, there'd be no Unreal Tournement, or Quake.

and yea, GTA is a great game. hahaha, i love running over those cops at the baracades.

I haven't een able to buy the latest games like Diablo, Baldur's Gate (OK, not the latest - the last 3 years!), Half-life, so I'll say:

1. The Age of Empires Series
2. Warcraft II
3. MS Soccer (Fun Factor)
4. Team Fortress Classic (First played it a few days ago, it was FUN)
5. Grand Theft Auto
6. Jetpack (Fun Factor)
7. Doom II
8. Heroes of Might & Magic II
9. Tetris
10.Combat Tanks! (Simple game, LOTS of Fun)

This isn't really an order. Just wrote them down as I thought of them. Except for AoE being first, of course.
