That's the thing, there are so many older games that I can load up and get right into (or newer ones without much flash, like Stone Soup) and lose myself for hours while new games tend to bore me. First, too often they turn into a PITA just to play (bad DRM issues, driver problems, general bugginess, etc). Then once you do start playing you feel like you've played the game a thousand times before. Nothing original. And what I find amusing is that while today we have superior graphic capabilities every game looks the same! Go back ten years when the visuals had personality. Now you could pretty much drop any model from game X into game Y and it would look right at home. Bleh.

I'd still rather play DOW 2 than AoE... no offense or anything, but I think that there's still some originality left.

Age of Empires was released 1997, about the same time as: Warcraft 2 and Command & Conquer: Red Alert (1996), Total Annihilation (1997) and Starcraft (1998).

Besides Dawn of War, there're Company of Heroes, Dawn of War, Sins of a Solar Empire, World in Conflict... Some of these will probably be fondly remembered in 2019. Personally, I'll probably try to play these (for the first time) around that time, on my Windows 256, having lots of compatibility problems!

Weimaar,
Have you actually considered playing MP? Single player can only get you so far.

No I havnt! Single player is great! Fabtastic. There is no game like dominons. Really none.

Now, how fare the dominion4 plans? Any news? Are the developers still mired in something else?

Ive circulated this idea before. How many of you people are prepared to pay a larger sum meaning 500-1000 USD to pay for wages for gifted programmers/modders to start the development of a Dominion clone since the developers are not interested? (I am!)

And by clone, i really mean clone, copy paste plus MAJOR overhaul of graphics and MINOR improvements since this is a design people are USED to and WORKS and is LOVED.

Hey weimaar! I was wondering when you'd shown up again, it's been over a year!

I've heard some rumors that someone is actually building an indipendant Dom4, that's all I can tell ya, not sure if it's true, you can pop by the IRC and ask around doe...

The "word" is that "Dom4 is not in the pipeline".
It is NOT the secret project that Illwinter has done some work on.

If you want to ask about a possible 3rd party Dom4 project then your best bet would be either the Dom3Mod website
http://z7.invisionfree.com/Dom3mods/index.php?act=idx
or the SA IRC channel.

Aaaah! Fabulous! Ill go ahead and do exactly that! Thanks for being missed and thanks for the tips

(I NEED a Dominions 4, need to see a universe where you in dominions 10 (made 10-15 years from now) can walk around in the streets of one of the towns, picking a fight with the local brigands, sitting on horseback shooting arrows at hydras, banding up with the local vampires and going out on a blood hunt and what have you not!)

Zeldor! Anyone could do a clone for 10 million USD. The question is to try to make it as good as possible as resourceful as possible and not ripping the games soul away while youre at it.
