While Blizzard was already on the map thanks to the success of its Warcraft games, StarCraft turned Blizzard into a force to be reckoned with. It still stands as the quintessential example of real-time strategy all these years later and has become a popular e-sport around the world.

StarCraft has been so successful because it’s a game that is extremely well-balanced and relies on the player’s ability to micromanage his units and resources.
