Retrun of a Past Age!

Roughly two months ago I was digging through my old collection of PC games and found a title that ate up hours of my life, Age of Empires II. Feeling extremely nostalgic I popped the game into my PC and installed it only find it wasn't compatible with windows 7. I eventually spent three hours total to find a proper, non-intrusive, fix to get the game running. Fast forward to two days ago and I was surprised to see the exact same game (that doesn't work on any modern OS) sitting on the shelf at Wal-Mart. This got me to thinking, why was AoE2 never published digitally or fixed to work with modern PCs? Then today I saw this.

I'm going to buy this, I'm going to enjoy it, and most importantly I won't have to dig up home-made patches for it. Well at least not for a few years I wont.

I can't wait for this! I have an old computer I don't use anymore with Vista and for the first time ever I excitingly booted it up and started playing this game again in anticipation for the remake!
