They just put out a laughably non violent Age of Empires cinematic.
And its reminded me of all the old Age of Empire CGI cinematics, that blew my mind back when I first played those games as a kid. They were so epic, so action packed. Since then every RTS game ever has had some sort of similar opening sequence, but the Age of Empires intro was the first to stick in my mind.
Age of The Kings did not disappoint either, (The chess game, its a metaphor!!!)
But by Age of Empires 3, the style of opening that I had loved so much in the previous games, sorta lost its luster, watching two armies rush at eachother, screaming just didn't have the same thrill it once did. Then again the whole game sorta lost something with 3.
I can't be the only one who remembers first seeing these and loving them?
