  • Starcraft - not as bad as many here think

    ...and one more time I'm getting enemies

    But really, the game isn't that bad. I play it. Many others play it. But unfortunately many civers think that they have to hate Starcraft because it defeated Civ2 in the "game you spend the most time on" contest. I can't understand it.
    I also like it's predecessor, Warcraft II.


    I think there are also many civers who play Starcraft. Am I wrong?

    Is there actually anyone who hates it?
    Is there anyone who likes it?

    bah. this is the worst post I ever made. don't know why.

        Starcraft is ****ing brilliant! I find it impossible to believe that anyone could not like it, personally.

          I'll get to Starcraft eventually, but I haven't finished exploring all that Total Annhilation has to offer. Until then, TA is my RTS game of choice.
          No, I did not steal that from somebody on Something Awful.

            I suppose it's time for me to get back to my old mode. Why do you think Starcraft is good, when all the single player campaigns have little to do with tactics but "puzzle solving," and multi player games just boil down to who clicks faster?

            BTW Andz, just because somebody doesn't like Starcraft doesn't mean he hates it.

              Man, I spent too much time on Battlenet few years ago. I think SC is great!

                Just bought it last week - a budget package with Diablo, Warcraft (II?) and the SC add-on the name of which escapes me. Have found diablo quite addictive, but haven't started any of the others yet - I'm still playing M&M VII, Planescape Torment & Fallout 2 - my horrible daughter has just bought M&M VIII and my employer expects me to turn up every now and again ....

                A quick question - should I start with simple SC or should I load it together with the add-on from the start???

                  If SC is anything like TA, play the 'basic' game a few times first--fewer units make for an easier learning curve.

                    Start with the basic SC before going to the Brood Wars add-on.

                    SC is one of my favorite games.

                        Starcraft is the tradition RTS, which is why I hate it, along with the other RTSs.
                        I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

                          I normally don't like RTS games either. The only ones I've played are Age of Empires/Kings, CC3, and Warcraft 2.

                          I tried playing Starcraft, but I just couldn't get into it. I hate RT puzzle-based mission games.

                          But I still play Warcraft 2. It's an older game, but I love this game. The sheer brilliance and personality in the game are terrific. This is the game that made Blizzard's reputation, and it is one of the few RTS games that I LOVE to play.

                            I also like Starcraft

                            is it usual here that there are several threads open about one single topic?
