Three Moves Ahead Episode 195: Classic Game Analysis — Age of Mythology

November 20th, 2012 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Podcast, RTS, Three Moves Ahead


Sometimes you find a topic you are, if not born for, but that if brought to you, you realize you need no serious research for because Age of Mythology is the kind of game that we could have talked about for hours. It’s one of my favorite games ever, and, I think, an object lesson in design sophistication – taking the rock-paper-scissors model into tunnel after tunnel without ever losing the player.

We gave it a good solid 80 minutes and were lucky to have the marital bliss of John Peter Grant helping guide the way.

You can talk more about the show at the official forum over here.

And if you are old school FoS Baller, then you can download the show from this MP3 link.

This show, Time’s recent list of great games and a bunch of other things in my life have me thinking about what that entire category even means. So yes. There will be a real post. Very soon. No idle promise. Bruce has knives.
