So, one of my favorite games of all time is StarCraft. Part of the reason that I love this game so much is because of the gameplay. For people who don't know how the game plays out, you end up choosing one of 3 races, and then you and your opponent collect resources in order to create armies and try to kill each other. It's actually a lot more complex, and interesting than it sounds, and it's a ton of fun to watch and play. Each of the races you can choose is completely different from the others, and while there are some units that serve a similar purpose, they each do it in their own way. For me, the most appealing part of playing StarCraft, is the feeling I get when I defeat an opponent. There's something extremely gratifying about beating someone, and knowing that in that moment you were better than them, and your skill level surpassed theirs. Another thing I enjoy about StarCraft is seeing your own improvement. I love when I manage to pull of something that I wasn't able to do before, or when I play for an extended period of time without making mistakes. It feels really good to look back and see that you have actually improved. The StarCraft community is pretty amazing in general, there are some people who are rude, but for the most part everyone is really nice, and finding a practice partner isn't very   difficult. If you've never played StarCraft you should definitely give it a shot, cause it's a bunch of fun :D


  1. This makes me want to play SC again!

  2. When I was in highschool, I used to love playing original Starcraft and Age of Empires... nowadays I like watching the occasional top-tier South Korean matches on youtube of Starcraft 2, they're usually pretty intense.

  3. I'll never stop saying this, Starcraft is simply the best RTS ever made so far. Starcraft 2 doesn't even come close to the original.
