This was a good game, may be worth a look.

I fell for this with Age of Empires II. For me it's just too dated, I could not take the game seriously in 2014. Too many other great games have been released.

I agree with this, and was going to post as much. However, I'm glad old classics are not forgotten and there is a place to get them (ie. GOG and now Steam).  However, when they repackage them, maybe sprucing them up a little, and then charge almost full price for them, as if its a "new" release, I think that is taking it too far.

^Yeah. It may work for some guys. For me I tried to play for a few minutes and was just 'meh I can't get into this.' Also like JH said the price I paid was not worth it. Typically I am not this grumpy about games but AoE II stands out for me because I really loved it in 1998. But in 2014, no. YMMV.
