Can anyone give me examples of computer-games which use Genetic Algorithm??

I think age of empires also uses GA. Can anyone confirm that? I'm trying to understand the concept of GA in games. How it works and so on!

The question seems a bit misleaded!
GA is nothing but a technique (some would say algorithm but that's a bit strong) to optimize a function! That is not in any sense a limitation. What that optimization is all about is pretty much limited to the imagination of the user. You could use it to optimize social behaviour (what actions to perform in a given context) or why not optimize the movement of you army? But in many cases a GA is much to ineffective to use for optimization and instead an assimilated annealing approch will help you get a more effective optimization (to the price of accuracy). Put try to not think of GA as more as a technique influenced by genetics for optimization/classification.

Oh ok. thanks for that. I'm going to try something like that.
