Age of Empires has always been a historical game that would educate the players. However, AOE3 was different in that it never really bothered to do that, giving the player a fictional story with limited historical accuracy.
Which is why I find AOE3WOL so interesting. It's given me a lot to research, and I'm learning quite a lot as I go along. For example, Brazil got more slaves than any other country in the world, Simon Bolivar was South America's George Washington, and Argentina gets silver crates because the spaniards thought it was the land of silver, so the Spaniards named it after Argentum, latin for Silver.
But I do have a question.
What do Argentina's horses reference? Are they really all a bunch of horseriding cowboys? I almost feel like that's racist, but at the same time one of the staff members is from Brazil so maybe another is from Argentina?
What do the horses reference?
