A game of epic proportions was released to the world exactly 20 years ago. It's name: Age of Empires. Created by the incredibly talented folks at Ensemble Studios, it would mark the beginning of the most fantastic real time strategy game series ever.

What better way to celebrate this day by going to a historical museum full of artifacts, artwork, and information about some of the ancient civilizations (Egyptians, Phoenicians, Etruscans and Romans, Greeks, Persians) that are in AoE and once ruled the world - this is exactly what I did, in style of course! Here are some moments from today:

A Greek vase, depicting a battle. I can't describe how beautifully detailed this looks.



This is a large Egyptian sarcophagus, with a look inside. Full of hieroglyphs, and amazing rich colors.



And lastly, a tomb raider from the future, dressed just like in the ancient times.



Age of Empires is what made me appreciate ancient history in the first place. It has been a wonderful 20 years. Well, the coming 20 years are looking bright - with a Definitive Edition coming for the whole series, as well as Age of Empires 4.

Cheers, and congrats!

I admit I was not there at the beginning, but I know that the first vg I played regularly was the RoR Trial version. Before that I had only played fighter games rarely one or two weekends per month when we visited some relatives.

It was quite different from any experience I had before and I was hooked. I remember it took for me like 2 weeks and 20+ hours to finish Battle of Tunis. Oh the good old times!

I play this game since 1998 then I was 4-year old ^-^
Random-generated maps is best solution to make the game infinite =)
P.S. CONGRATULATIONS from Russia!
