    Out of curiosity, Starcraft came out, what.. 97ish?
    People still play it today, thousands on b.net, people like me on LAN, and tons and tons have bought it and/or burned it and played it at least a few times. Who here plays SC still to this day? What is it about it that is better then other RTS' or what is it that draws you back for more from such an old game? Is it b.net?


    It is my favorite PC game of all time. I've played it since it came out and if I could, i'd still be going on battle.net. Anyone here agree?

    For sure man! I play StarCraft at least once a week. I'm always drawn back to B.Net by some strange force. It was just such a well executed game, I love it!

    It is funny... the game was written for the Pentium 75, and now it is used on Athlon 2000+ CPU's and soon, on the Clawhammer. I predict this game will run a LONG time, and probably because it is just so darn addictive.

    Of course i play it, its life... not like where im sitting right now. There is that thrill you get as you log on for the first time saturday morning,,, no more like a rush.

    Wont give my name here as i have too many enemies, some put me in their freinds list just to piss me off.

    Wait, i really have 4500-2500-550 record or something near that and no its not the winbot as i kill hackers, same team if they start doing play by play haha.

    Wait, did i mention i think i might be obsessive compulsive.

    Here is another question for you sciforums.com, looking at Blizzard's older games, which are still being played today, including Warcraft: Orcs Against Humans, how long do you think WC3 will last and do you think that the MMORPG will do as well? Gamers paying for online play? Thats a big change since b.net.

    This thread was started in 2003?
    What is Starcraft and do people still play even now in 2011???



    PS: I do know what Starcraft is

    I'd be surprised people will still play after SCII came out. I never played either game, or WoW, but, I heard it's a good game. Right now I'm playing FONV - so far no serious bugs although it didn't start on the first load which was a worry and crashed after 3.5 hours.

    Same....although I heard Supreme Commander 2 is better.

    P.S. I said heard, that is all, I heard. Please don't flame if I am wrong.....

    I have Starcraft 2 and it is amazing. I won't say it's better than the original, because they're similar in so many ways. But it's amazing.
