Some real gems in the Steam Summer Sale – Age of Empires II – The RTS lives on!

The RTS genre may not be with us anymore, but the classics that defined it are all on Steam. If you’re a fan of Age of Empires like I am, check out this massive sale. Age of Empires II HD Edition which is the Age of Kings and the expansion pack for it, Age of Conquerors are on sale  for a mere $4.99. If you want to get The Forgotten Expansion you can get all of it for $7.49. That is insanely cheap! If that’s not enough for you, check this out. There is the Age of Empires Legacy Bundle which is the full monty and includes – Age of Empires III: Complete Collection, Age of Empires II HD, Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten. I mean damn! That is the whole damn collection in one fell swoop. That’s amazing. And it’s $13.74. For less than $15 you can get some of the best RTS ever made!

If you truly want it all you can get Age of Mythology for $22.49, but if you go over to Steam and vote AoM could drop by 40% and only cost $18. Nice savings there.

I really do miss Age of Empires and the RTS genre. There were some great games that came out during that time period. We had Age of Empires, Rise of Nations and Empire Earth. It’s a damn shame that every one of those studios is not shut down and completely defunct.

But you can still play the games and they going strong!
