The players have to think a lot to defeat their enemy. The setting of the games are in the world of Azeroth, which is a high fantasy setting. The main focus of the setting is on human and the orcs have arrived from another world, which is referred as Draenor or Outland. Then the story begins. Unlike Starcraft Warcraft actually has some story.

Around the world, this game is considered the most addicting game that people play. The people are not able to help themselves from playing World of Warcraft. They play games about six to seven hours a day with their characters. The people say that they are not addicted to the game; however they are very addicted to the game. In this game there are also different races. For example there are orcs, humans, night elf, and undead. People tend to play night elf or orcs because those two are the races that are the easiest. Undead is the hardest to play. Unlike these people I play human. The company that owns this game is Blizzard Entertainment, which made Starcraft, too.

Due to this game, many people are being game addicts who cannot be successful socially. Even though the game is fun, people should find different things that could make them happy, such as reading.




It is a game that was made in thirty first of March in 1998. This game was really popular when it was first established in that year. A lot of people were looking forward to the game before it even came out before. Therefore, Starcraft was able to gain a lot of popularity until now and succeeded in earning a lot of money.

The three main races in the game are Terran, Protoss, and Zerg. According to Blizzard, the company that established Starcraft, the races are equally balanced and the people are able to play the game without a lot of disadvantage when they start.

The characteristics of Terran is that it can have heavy units that has strong damage such as siege tank and goliath. However, it could have marine, firebat, and medic that could have a good mobility. The heavy units are generally more expensive than the units that are cheap with low health.

For Protoss, they are able to have many units that are very expensive. Unlike Terran, Protoss usually have a lot of expensive units. They have units such as Zealot, Dragoon, and High Templar that are very expensive compare to other races. they are generally really slow, but they are strong. If Protoss has a lot of mineral and gas, it could have a invincible army.

Zerg’s characteristics are that their units are very cheap compare to Protoss and Terran. Also, they are able to have a lot of units compare to amount of their resources. Unlike the other races, it makes its units from Hatchery, Lair, and Hive. The other races produce units from certain buildings such as Gateway and Robotics. However, Zerg is totally different from the others. Zerg is able to fight the enemy without a lot of strong units. Therefore, it can move around the map really quickly and fight the other units. This is very significant characteristics because it does not have to fight if it does not want to.

In order to create the units, the people need to gather mineral and vespene gas. These two resources are the main resources to create the units. The person with a lot of these resources is able to fight the other person. Usually, the person with the resources win the game.

This game is considered one of the most addicting games in the world that people play. Since this game is very popular people are able to access and play it very often. Even I have played this game for very long time and got addicted to it. One time I have played this game for twelve hours straight and go crazy about it. Therefore, I recommend not playing too much Starcraft.
