Buy or Bargain Bin: Age of Empires vs Civilization

Welcome to Buy or Bargain Bin, the game where the readers choose which game they would rather buy or have tossed in the $5 bargain bin. The game is simple, every week I pick two videogames either past or present and you choose which one lives and which one dies. Cast your vote below and also provide a reason or reasons why you “bought” one game and “killed” the other in the comment section.

Borderlands 2 was last week’s winner, winning by a landslide. Darksiders II didn’t seem to have a chance and Darksiders II will not be back in the future for another match-up.

I’ve been playing a lot of strategy games this week so I’ve decided to make that the theme of this week’s match-up and instead of a single game we are going to put two franchises up against each other.

This week’s games franchises are…

Age of Empires



















I’m a huge fan of both these franchises and in my opinion they are two of the best strategy franchises ever.

Do you think that you have two games that deserve a match-up? If you do go ahead and suggest them in the comment section below, the match-up with the most likes will be next Friday’s Buy or Bargain Bin.

There are this week’s picks for Buy or Bargain Bin, make sure to vote in the little voting thing below and leave a comment in the comment section letting us know why you bought one game franchise and tossed the other in the bargain bin.
