An incredible real time strategy we Americans made for fun,
although the Koreans took it, and made it their lifestyle, culture, national sport, etc. etc., if a baby born in Korea is unable to defeat the computer at birth, it is dubbed ill and is left for the dead at the local hospis
Any local korean child is most likely able to play starcraft or is at least decent at it (this shows they are american born)Not all Koreans are like this though, some are normal
One of the greatest RTS (real time strategy) games of all time. It was produced by Blizzard Entertainment in 1998, and has remained popular with over 30 million copies sold.
In the game 3 races, Zerg, Protoss, and Terran (human) face off in an intergalactic free for all. The game was hailed as on of the greatest with regards to balance between the warring factions. One of the greatest players of all time is Terran, whereas beginning players enjoy Protoss and Zerg. Moderate players can usually play as any of the races and it can be anyones game.
South Korea loves Starcraft. They have competitions, where as many as 14 kids from each of the 6 major teams compete in front of a stadium of people. The best player in the world can make upwards of 200,000 dollars. The training players are lucky to make 600/month.
On a personal note, one of the greatest games of all time. Starcraft 2 will be coming out soon, hopefully they managed to do everything Starcraft did, but even better.
best real-time strategy in the world from Blizzard company. Three unique races which grant us fun for a long time. Played as a sport in Korea every year best players challenge on WCG Korea to show their best.
an outstandingly balanced and skilful real time strategy game. it is based on fast gameplay and the ability to mobilise forces quickly. it appears to have become the natioanl sport of much of South Korea, and twelve year old Korean kids seem to dominate any game they are in.
