I can't even properly respond because of how you quoted my post, not to mention your broken English. You hit "quote" on my post but replied inside the quote bb code. I don't need to explain myself further as everyone else is disagreeing with you anyway, you should get the point by now.

SC2's gameplay may be balanced, but it's really nothing special. Sorry, but i don't consider being able to spam APM and being able to outclick/hotkey the other guy strategy. It's definately a skill yes, but it's not strategy. Yes yes i know i'm oversimplifying things, but ultimately that is what it comes down to...
As for Diablo, well again it's all opinion. It's kinda like how Mass Effect has a bajillion fanboys, yet its some of Bioware's worst games (DA being the absolute worst)... But like you said, a million ppl can't be wrong hey tongue.gif

Disagreeing with the choice is fine. But, If not Blizzard than who? For your points to make sense, you have back up your opinion with evidence or facts.

Many have already posted the success of Blizzard. You need to point out their weaknesses and give us the name of the studio that you deem deserving of the award.

I never played diablo so I cant say anything but wow is garbage. I hated the warcraft RTS games. And starcraft in all its greatness really wasn't a product of blizzard since it was the community that made the game and balanced it through maps. Sure blizzard made the actual game but I'd credit hardcore gamers and Korea for making starcraft the sport it is just as much if not more.

Blizzard and Valve are both awesome, not sure of any other dev I like that much.

You just said you hate the Warcraft RTS games that I've been playing for ~10 years. *Massive sad face*

You say you have never played Diablo, WoW is garbage, you hated the Warcraft RTS games and that Starcraft wasn't a product of Blizzard. Then you go on to say that "Blizzard and Valve are both awesome." ??? Has to be one of the most ignorant statements I've read in a while.

Many people forget just how groundbreaking Blizzard actually was when they first introduced their franchises.



I don't believe I was ever denying they made anything groundbreaking, just throwing out that a game doesn't need to be groundbreaking to be of great quality, which Blizzard titles generally are.

You was doing ok right up until you said that. Mass Effect was nowhere near a bad title. doh.gif

I don't think I have to point out the absurdity of this kind statement. Sorry, but sometimes credit is due. When you give the audience of a product more credit than the developer, it's clear you have an agenda against said developer. Yeah, Blizzard did patch and balance Starcraft thanks for community feedback, but who actually checked out the date, planned the patch, made it, then released it? Personally, I'd actually give more brownie points to a company that listens to a community, and I certainly wouldn't use that to give the assumption that they're lazy or don't deserve credit. I mean really, the analogy doesn't work for anything. The Beatles weren't great musicians, their audience just demanded good music. NASA didn't really get to the moon, Kennedy ordered them to.

Why would anyone disagree Blizz is gaming god? 0.o
I don't play their game anymore and don't think I'll buy D3, but they are most successful company for past years. I don't know any game that could hold 10 000 000 subscribers for years. Maybe CS/Q3 but those are one-time pay games as opposed to 15$ month.
I have my hopes with BioWare and SW:TOR, but for now Blizzard is the god in this industry.

After reading trough this Thread i can see why company's left the PC Gaming community.... all they get is crap and then some more....

Regardless of if its your type of game or not Blizzard has always produced quality games with few bugs and very polished. Games with great replay value and great gameplay. Games that don't go out dated very quick.
There is no denying in these points wether you like the games or not.

I can guarantee that 10 years from now, I'll still be playing StarCraft 2... just like I'm still playing StarCraft 1, WarCraft II and Diablo II. Game companies who can make a game that people will still play decades later is a company deserving of such a Lifetime Achievement Award. I will be buying Diablo 3 when it comes out, as I have high hopes for it and I really hope I get the same enjoyment out of it as I have out of all their other games.

I also agree that the PC community itself is pushing away these awesome PC-centric developers and need to stop whining when a pixel is 3/4" off with a tapered corner instead of a rounded corner, then blast it for being terrible/having terrible graphics/no QA, or whatever the motif of the day is. Stop pushing these developers away from the best gaming platform there is.

Also... Mass Effect is one of BioWare's worst franchises? What? Maybe it's the worst in a pile of super freakin awesome games, which makes it super freakin awesome compared to every other game out there... DA is fantastic thumb.gif
