Age of Empires II: HD is the best real-time strategy game I have ever played, and I would even go to say it rivals more mainstream RTS games like Starcraft II, even despite how old it is.
The concept is fairly simple:
You start out with a small town, a few peasants and a variety of minerals and trees surrounding your area. You work with these resources to expand your small town into a thriving empire, all while advancing through the ages and developing a military that you later will use to crush your opponents in battle.
There are a variety of civilizations to choose from, and they all have their different perks and advantages. My personal favourite is of course, the Mayans.
I can't give this game a 10/10, as there are some multiplayer connectivity issues and yes, it has aged a bit, so it definitely isn't for everyone. But, if you can put up with some lag, and are okay with old retro-style graphics, then I can definitely recommend this to you.
9/10, highly recommended
