The Escapist PAX 2008: StarCraft II Hands-On

The Escapist writes: "How do you follow up StarCraft?

Sure, every once in a while it's fun to break out an old classic like Super Mario World amongst friends for nostalgia's sake, but games that have the sort of longevity to be played seriously - let alone competitively - more than ten years after their initial release are few and far between. Of those, none of them have enjoyed success and acclaim even close to that of StarCraft: Blizzard's 1998 space-faring RTS stands alone, head and shoulders above the crowd. Gamers might laugh and joke that the game is "South Korea's national sport," but really, when was the last time you saw even a groundbreaking title like Street Fighter II played live on television?" (PC, Starcraft II)
