1 I love StarCraft. There are many reasons for my love of StarCraft but there are a few that stand above the others.
- Building your own army is fun. Whether it’s a platoon of cigar chomping grunts in powered armor or a legion of bioengineered, hive-mind alien beings, ordering up specific units to exploit specific weaknesses is fun.
- It’s modern day Chess. You have different pieces that can move in specified ways and have different strengths and weaknesses, just like Chess. Unlike Chess you can create more pieces provided you have the resources to create those pieces you can also have more that 2 players.
- Decimating your enemy with atomic fire has never been so satisfying.
- I enjoy completely obliterating my enemy. Winning is not enough. I want to erase every last trace of them as if they never existed. I will not finish a campaign until not a single enemy unit remains.
In the immortal words of Conan the Barbarian, “What is best in life? To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.”
