Also, I do not get all the hype with Starcraft, it isn't even that great. Games like CSS beat it anyday in my bood.
Depends what genre of games you like really. In the world of RTS, Starcraft is one of the best. Starcraft and it's expansion pack Brood Wars have sold over 9 million copies, making it the second best selling computer game in history (behind The Sims). About one third of that or 3.5 million have been sold in South Korea alone. Yeah, now you know why Koreans kick ass in Starcraft. It's almost 10 years old and it's still one of the most popular games ever.
I thought it was alright. I liked Command & Conquer more. Militaristic RTS games are more for me, but I still remember the good 'ol days with Starcraft and Warcraft II.
