Absolutely. Age of Empires II is still one of the games I've put most hours into. I've spend hundreds of hours playing skirmish missions. This game just offers endless hours of gameplay. Every match is different, so you can just play this game over and over again. I'd love to see a new port of this game for modern macOS. The release of the Definitive Edition would be the perfect reason to release an updated port for Macs.
I've now seen a video on YouTube showing off some of the new features in this game. Wow, I didn't know so many things had changed. I've played the HD Edition that was released a few years ago, but that's essentially the exact same game as the original Age of Empires II with updated graphics. I expected this Definitive Edition to be the same: Just the same game with again updated graphics to make it look even better.
However, this is a complete overhaul of the entire game. I always thought Age of Empires II was a near-perfect game, so how can you improve on a game that's this good? Watching the improvements in that video I realised it is in fact possible to make the game even better.
This game looks absolutely fantastic. It makes one of my favourite games of all time even better, so after seeing what this Definitive Edition is all about I want a Mac version of this game more than anything else. Forget my previous vote of Doom 2016. I want Feral to start porting Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition right now.
