Blizzard's significance to gaming should be pretty obvious. They're the studio behind games like StarCraft and World of WarCraft--genre-defining megahits that have transcended the medium and entered the mainstream consciousness. At one point, they dominated South Korea to the point that one of their games was the country's de facto national pastime. Suffice it to say, they've had a little bit of success over the years.
