No doubt about DOS beign stable but if you recall the video cards where 16 colors or less about 3 video card companies, and with cards liek tridents beign the majority drivers were what kinda of issue? DOS was stable because what it is. Its a **** of a lot easier to make a bike work then a starship, thats all Im saying.

These are the kinda comments that make me laugh yet cry at people at the same time.

Well since you didnt like it based on yoru 12 minute review I cant see how anyone likes it....right one persons opinion (One that has as much research and thought put into as your own) obviously speaks volumes for the entire PC gaming community.

Nope I dont get it either how is it a global phenomenon if YOU dont like it? Crazy huh?

You can install it as many times you want, but you obviously need a cd-key, and a cd to play. And if you use your friends cd-key you two cant be on b.net at the same time.

It seems that starcraft is using the same layout as its predecessors (Starcraft, Warcraft III and Diablo somewhat)

Aye, my lack of interest in Starcraft was sure to evoke an enraged fanboy response. First of all, the 12 minute comment was an exaggeration. I played it for about a week. I was merely remarking that I couldn't understand what people found so great about it. It was similar to the already-released Total Annihilation, and didn't seem to have any substantial incentive for playing, be it graphics, gameplay, or general innovation. I thought perhaps I was missing something. Rather than enlighten me on why the game is excellent, I got jumped on because I didn't like it. Your articulate response was a clear indicator that your primary form of communication for the past little while has come from the barrel of a rifle. Enjoy your Starcraft 2.

Pistol as well. And the only thing you got right in that entire sentence was the insult.

My point was not that you should have liekd Starcraft I could care less. My point was your comment about no understanding why its such a popular game because you didnt like it. That kind of narrow minded ignorance is comical, and that fact that you try and pass you opinion off as a articulate and well thought out review is just as humorous.

Well I may lack the vocal ability to come to such a contrived reply, I think I can mange to get my point across with the few grutns and groans I can muster from behind my rifle. lol

I didn't get into Startcraft, it was slightly before my time.

Doesn't look graphically astounding. But I am sure they are concentrating on gameplay and the unit-number for midrange machines.
