For those of you who are still on the fence about whether or not to purchase the AoW series, here are some things to consider:
1) "Are these games good? Are they worth playing?" The short answer is, "Yes." These games continue to be played up until the present because they were good upon release and remain compelling even today. The fact that they continue to have an active community and plenty of mods and user-made campaigns speaks to their longevity.
2) "Do I really want to buy all three of these?" The short answer is, "Most likely." The only one of the three which is truly a "must-buy" would be Shadow Magic (the last in the series), and that is because of it being the spiffiest and most mod-able. Once you play it, however, you'll have an itch to play the other two, and even the first AoW has a lot to offer. If you truly have doubts about these games being "up your alley," download the demo and get a taste of how they play. If you like them at all, get all three or you'll wish you had, later.
3) "Do I really want to spend the money? I could buy any other GOG game for the same amount." Yes, you could, but would you rather have one game or three for that price? Seriously, even if you're waiting for the Christmas sale, even if you're hoping for a price-drop in the future (which is entirely possible), you're still not going to beat this price by much. You'd have to find another 50% deal AFTER a price drop, and that would save you $4. Are you willing to take a chance that next year (or the year after) you might save $4? Go ahead and buy the games, already. GOG could use your money, and you can skip buying a latte to make up for the price difference.
IN CONCLUSION, if you have any interest in these games at all, buy them during this sale.
