I don't know if people know this but,

If you go to the microsoft store on your PC and subscribe for the XBOX monthly membership (I think 7$ for the first month) you can download all xbox games to your PC and play it on your PC. Includes new titles such as GearsOfWar, TheOuterWorlds etc.

This had me dipping :) xD

Can anyone recommend some Age of Empires players/Channels to go and watch? I will probably buy AoE 2 and maybe 1 DE's just to have the collections and play through the campaigns since I haven't played through any of them.

Last i played was age of empires 3, and I was a goon at it. This does look interesting, and now that I have a half decent pc, I will probably be able to play it

There are still people playing AOE3 online. Just create an ESO (Esemble studios online) account and login.

I still own those big boxes of AOE1 and AOE2 with their Expansions, AOE3 in my opinion is complete crap.
And having seen some videos os AOE4.... not the biggest fan of the somewhat "cartoon" look, not sure if that's the right word but definitely doesnt have the same look as the 1 and 2

People still play AOE2 now.

Me and a couple mates played it a few months back, i think its the definitive edition.
Its also available on game pass.

PC Gamer had an article about how AoE2 DE is kinda a silent success:

It’s now by far Steam’s most popular RTS, with both the Definitive Edition and the 2013 HD Edition having higher player counts than closest competitor Company of Heroes 2. This year's big tournament boasted the largest Age of Empires 1v1 prize pool since 2002.

Last month, in April, the games’ combined average player count was over 50,000 players. April 12 was the definitive edition’s all-time player peak, and the combined total of the games was 59,995 players. That’s well into the top 150 all-time peak player counts on Steam… for a 21-year-old game.

The two games generally average higher player counts than popular free-to-play game War Thunder or industry darling Stardew Valley. They’re on-par with the popular action RPG Path of Exile. Their average is nearly as many as perennially popular premium games like Civilization VI or Terraria. Both versions of Age of Empires 2 sit in the top 100 games on Steam, with the Definitive Edition sitting at #25.
And that's only Steam metrics, I'm sure there's lots of people playing it via Xbox Game Pass
