How overrated is Starcraft?

I played it for a little bit, I'm not a fan of the RTS genre, but atleast I can see the game as good, but the way some people talk about the game they make it seem godly.

Starcraft is probably the most overrated game on the PC, anyone agree?

YES, it is so overrated that Starcraft fanboys have scared me to the point that i no longer have interest in the game.

Starcraft is a GREAT game. No it's not god but it is a damn good game with a damn good storyline. People overate it because well written and executed storylines are so hard to come by. I recently went back and played it and the fact they haven't made a sequel yet is a CRIME. It is one of the best games to be released for the pc. I will admit there are people who do overate the game, but overall I think it deserves alot of the praise it gets.

Excellent story, excellent gameplay, excellent multiplayer. Anyone who thinks its overated needs to look at what they think are awesome games and then go from there.

This game is awesome, I love picking the protoss and making a huge thing of Cannons and making everyone waste their minerals before I run out of mine and then I just wipe them out, takes a while, but it works against most people who don't really know how to play.

littlewig is overrated. Why make a thread that barely has an opinion. Why do you think it's overrated? What is overrated about it? If you hate the RTS genre, I doubt you have played enough games to compare Starcraft to other games.

Of course, we know you'll just google more RTS games and claim to have played them. So carry on.

Here is a list of RTS games I have played

Westwood's Command & Conquer(1995) and Command & Conquer: Red Alert(1996)
Blizzard's Starcraft(1998) and Warcaft III: Reign of Chaos(2002)
Microsoft's Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings(1999)
THQ's Company of Heroes(2006)

Out of the list of RTS I have played, Starcraft would be on the bottom.

Best RTS there has ever been, and might ever be.

Insane amounts of depth, 3 completly different races with different units, and yet complete balance

The game is excellent to a huge degree. The story and one player are excellent and contain huge amounts of depth and are not your typical serving of alien storylines. You could spend weeks devising new tactics with each of the different races which makes many multiplayer games completely unique. All the races are unique and yet balanced.

I lost interest in Warcraft III way faster than Starcraft.

There he goes spewing nonsense again, poor old man. Take your meds and eat your applesauce.




In all seriousness, SC was a pretty cool game. It's not an amazing game. Is SC overrated in the west? Kinda, yeah.

Is SC overrated in Korea? **** yes.

Its not overrated because people arent saying its the greatest RTS ever created. Only then could it be overrated. Kinda like saying FF is the greatest rpg series. You get the general idea. Its a great RTS. Just because alot of people enjoy it alot doesnt make it overrated. More people talk about C&C then Starcraft.
