Age Of Empires | 1997 | Ensemble Studios | Microsoft Game Studios (Real-Time-Strategy)
While I enjoy the level to which Age of Empires II took the series, I still appreciate the original game as well. It clearly lacks some very useful features present in the sequel, but Age of Empires can still be a fun way to start with a small tribe gathering fruit, and build your way up to an empire wreaking havoc on small helpless peasanst who were once like you.
