When it comes to the genre of real-time strategy games, Age of Empires is truly a titan. Ensemble Studios helped set the bar for RTS games back in the late 90s and since then, has stayed true to itself as one of the biggest and best franchises out there. They did that despite taking a 16-year break between their third and fourth main series entries too. Along with the fourth game in 2021, a bunch of extension packs was released last year (2022) for the second and third games so there’s no shortage of content for gamers. If you like what you’ve been playing and want more, or want a break from Age of Empires but want to stay within the genre, we’ve got you covered. Below is a list of the fifteen best games like Age of Empires.
