Not the best video, but nice to see them have another launch.

I hadn't really seen the dishes in their full glory before. Makes it look like a SETI New Mexico thing. They're way bigger than I was thinking.

I hated all the peacfull victories. They sucked.

But I do agree with the underlying point. Age of Empires is great because you're building your empire not a predefined empire. Has a lot of role playing going on beyond just the raw strategy.

Also combat was fun and everything felt rewarding. Good gameplay loop.

Switch sold 55k Units in South Korea for its first three days. Wii, DS, and 3ds, didn't hit that until over a month in.
Now imagine if they manufactured them in Korea.  Everyone in Korea would have one!

What Made Age Of Empires Great 

Quote
Win conditions are different from other popular RTS games. In Age of Empires, you can win peacefully, by building and defending a Wonder, like the Great Pyramid or the Colosseum, keeping it standing for 5-10 minutes, or by capturing relics, artifacts, and ruins and holding them for a set period of time. These win conditions have a lot in common with 4X games like Civilization, emphasizing more than just military dominance. It's not surprising that Age of Empires has a lot in common with Civilization, of course. Bruce Shelley, Civilization's co-designer, was the director on Age of Empires

Age of Empires has always leaned closer to the Civilization end of strategy games. While RTSes have gradually lost market share to MOBAs, 4X games like Civilization and Total War (which blends 4X and RTS mechanics) have thrived, and city builders like Banished and Cities: Skylines have sold millions. I believe Age works for this same reason: it's slow and sprawling, and lets you focus on more than just military engagements.
Modern RTSes have increasingly fallen prey to Grognard capture, focusing their attention on their most hardcore players, emphasizing high APM and streamlined economies. Focus is increasingly paid towards competitive play, ignoring the non-competitive players who are far more interested in the base-building, economy-managing, research-oriented players. Nearly every high-profile RTS is built with a heavy emphasis on this fast, competitive play style. There's nothing wrong with this kind of game--Company of Heroes, for instance, is fantastic--but without slower games like Age of Empires, a huge niche is being underserved.
