How'd you start playing Age of Empires?

I downloaded the free demo of Age of Empires II back in the dial-up days of the 90s and I’ve been playing AoE since. How about you?

I started with AoEIII and played AoEII (on the Nintendo DS too). Never bought the games new. My cousin played the III and I just liked it after playing a game.

There’s no Age of Empires II on DS. There was a sort of tie-in game called Age of Empires: The Age of Kings on DS, but it was a completely different game.

Well, it’s been a while so I can’t really remember the title tbh. Don’t have a DS anymore (might even have been a 3DS or whatever). It must have been sometime arround 2008-10 I played that ^^

A friend of mine from India came over to the states and burned a copy of his AoE disc for me and told me I had to play it.

I played it until the disc went bad, then went out and bought 2 more discs. One for backup.

Then I found out about AoE2 and bought that.

I don’t meet many who started on the original! Great story!
