I don't know how to express my joy. This is an incredibly good thing. Forgotten Empires adds essential gameplay improvements like hotkeying multiple buildings and smart queuing SC2-style. It's basically the sum of all quality fan-made content over the 12 years that separated Age of Conquerors from AoE2:HD. I was deeply disappointed when AoE2:HD was released without even acknowledging the existence of these improvements: AoE2:HD was basically just AoC 1.0c with better widescreen support and Steam integration - which, mind you, was great, but still had players choose between two different sets of improvements. I was quite vocal about this issue on the official AoE2:HD forums; I would have hoped for at least some level of collaboration between the modding community and the game creators. Having worked as beta tester on Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, I can tell you that this can make all the difference.
Now with this new expansion, there should really be no question as to what the best version of Age of Empires 2 is. I will buy it if only to express my approval.
