I started playing Age of Empires when I was nine years old and my dad showed it to me. Naturally I was drawn to it because I like these types of games and played a lot. I started with AoE 3 and since it was my first AoE game I obviously liked it. I was into the campaigns more at first and then I got into multiplayer. I was never very good at multiplayer in it and I could never find anyone my skill level to play with anyway. Then AoEO came out and it was my new thing. It just clicked in my brain if that makes sense; I played everyday and I got legendary gear on most of my Greek units and some Norse units, but I never got around to putting it on the others. Then when they closed it down I was really ticked off at Microsoft and wanted to send letters or emails to them telling them to get it back. Eventually I gave up and I didn't even think about it for a couple years. Then a couple months ago the memories of the game came back and attacked me and I knew there had to be a way to get it back. So I searched for private servers every once in a while and eventually found AOEOFOREVER and I have waited patiently ever since.
