Everyone i know was hopelessly addicted to Starcraft...never gave it a chance myself

SirLarr5484d ago

First game didn't seem like that much of a bargain. Aren't most DS games $30?

I know, but the amount of time you'll spend with the game made me feel it was worth it.

I too missed out on Starcraft initially. I actually only ever played it on the N64 and I loved it the entire time. Such a good game. I would always love playing as the Terrans and then setting myself up against a ton of Zerg comp players to see how long I could hold out against incessant rushes. You have to love the siege tank!

Starcraft is pretty dang awesome...

stewie328875484d ago

If you like Starcraft I strongly suggest looking up Conquest: Frontier War. The game is very similar to Starcraft what with the three alien races (one human) fighting each other, but the gameplay in my opinion is much deeper. You have to watch supplies, hold wormholes, etc. The game is just great and it runs insanely cheap.

It Seems Pretty Clear Why StarCraft 3 is Not a Thing Yet

Even though fans have been clamoring for a StarCraft 3 for years now, it seems like Blizzard really has no reason to spend time making one.

They sort of ran the story as far as it could go.

Also, it seems like blizzard is more busy with mediocrity at this point in time.

The problem with Blizzard is they have franchises that don't need sequels. People are happy playing the games that they previously made. What they need is new games, none of this business of trying to transport the old audience into a new version of an old game which only ends up nickle and dime'ing users.

What needs to change in the RTS Genre

RTS; it's a beloved genre...but it's in dire need of originality or it risks being consigned to a small pool of fans.

In my opinion, they have evolved and become more complicated. Way back in the day with command and conquer games, they were easier to pick up and play. I’ll actually go further back to a $70 Super Nintendo game called “Metal Marines”. Not sure if I’m off the mark, but these cellphone, real time strategy games become overwhelming quickly to me. There’s too much going on at once and it turns me off. Not sure if there are any on consoles to be honest. If there is a RTS that is on PS4, I’m open to the recommendation

Metal marines... what a game, and Herzog Zwei too.

Ensemble Studios and Westwood closing spelt absolute disaster for RTS games, with exception of blizzard, no one made any real good ones. Microsoft and EA ruined two top franchises before closing the studio. such a shame

BenRC011075d ago

Over complicated. Dawn of War 1 was almost the perfect rts, its all been downhill since.
