      Not gonna lie, but after leetcoding for about 2 months straight I enjoy it now. Earlier it used to be a chore but now every problem is an interesting puzzle and I mostly know the techniques, its just a matter of recognizing patterns, logically thinking and combining those techniques. Eerily similar to playing chess.

      Is premium worth it? What do you get that the free version doesn't provide?

      I did try aoe3. But it wasn’t as awesome as aoe2. Which is why aoe2 still has so many fans, mods and a nice online community. It even got an HD update from MIcrosoft itself

      You shouldn't just try. You need put in hours before playing online. The game is shit if you don't unlock all the shipments. Once you levelup and have all cards it's better than all AOE combined. One of the most under appreciated game of our generation.

      Btw I'm a big fan of aoe2 and totally neglected aoe3 when it released.

    Diablo 2. I lost an entire summer to that game and no matter how many times I played it through I never got bored or tired of it. I had to get those legendaries! It's the whole reason why I focused on getting a job at Blizzard.

      Google - how do you even stock up unidentified SoJs? Maybe you meant duping?

      Unidentified Windforce Bows, the SOJ Rings were identified and basically became the currency.

      Oh man this brings me back. I remember I would play this game all night and go to summer camp dead tired in the morning.

      I also quit and came back to D2 at least 3-4 times.

    Chrono Trigger is about as close you can come to a perfect game given the tech limits as you can get.

      Because it had excellent music, memorable characters, and level design that hadn’t be done before at the time.

      Yes, if you compare it to games of today, it obviously won’t compare, but back in the 1998, this game was truly something else.
