well i bought this game over year ago, then last April my video card got fried, i was having some money issues and never got enough money to replace my video card until last month. well i went to reinstall aoe 3 a few days ago, and come to find out my brother thought it would be funny to take a key to all the disks (he's five so he couldn't really control it) auto play wouldn't even start when i tried to insert disk one. do you guys think it would be worth the money to rebuy the game? i am still having some money issues and i havnt decided between aoe 3 and oblivion (i only have enough extra money for one)

Ps i also am not wanting to do anything illegal so don't suggest it.

Have you thought about using disk doctor. If the disk isn't in too bad a condition, it might work. I use it all the time to repair minor scratches, and it claimes to handle medium sctatches (I havn't put it to the test, though I may by a K-Fed CD just to see if it works) But I have no idea on how badly damaged your disk is. Also, I've heard that some game stores and music shops have a process where they remove all the plastic coating from a disk and apply a new coat of... whatever the plastic stuff is called, so if he didn't scratch the CD all the way to the silver, you could try searching for that option (I wouldn't know where'd you find a store that does it. And I'm pretty sure it's a legal process, as it doesn't seem like something that would be illegal) So anyway, there are several ways to save a scratched disk, assuming the silver is still intact.

he did a pretty bad job on ALL the disks not just one. after i took a toy away from him that he was trying to swallow he got really mad and the next day took moms keys and went to town with them, (meh its partlily my fault for not putting my games up high) but we live in a small town and i dont know of any places around here that do that. (really i have to go to wal mart to buy games in the first place.) The scratches are really bad ill get a disk doctor later and try it although im not very optimistic about it fixing what he done.

I would if I were you...the game's price isn't $50 anymore...but I'm not sure, since I've never played oblivion and so can't really compare the two.

I put my money on no because it has less replay value than other great games like starcraft.

Hmmm, while I am a great fan of the AoE series, I love Oblivion a lot too. That game I can play over and over again, while AoE3 doesn't have much replay value. Then again, you have to make sure that your system is up to Oblivion, as it is graphically damanding, and on low it doesn't look very pretty. On the other hand, AoE is less expensive (20-30 dollars now) because it's been out for a while, and Oblivion is 49.95 at most retailers. It's up to you, but there seems to be pro's and con's for both sides.

AoE has no replay value at all.
