Originally founded in 1991 by Michael Morhaime, Allen Adham and Frank Pearce as Silicon & Synapse, Blizzard originally focused on ports for other systems for other companies. They didn't begin developing their own games until the release of RPM Racing for the SNES.
The company only found modest success until the release of their breakthough hit, Warcraft. Blizzard now has some of the most widely recognized IPs in the world. Hooked Gamers will begin with RPM Racing and see how well each new game sold and led to sequels
