The 100 Greatest Games | 52 | StarCraft


One of the biggest selling PC games of all time, StarCraft (from the creators of WarCraft) offered a thrilling blend of science-fiction and real-time strategy. But while the game doggedly followed RTS conventions and set-pieces - and actually offered little in the way of innovation - it did everything it set out to achieveextraordinary well. Offering an array of balanced strategic battles wrapped around gripping story, brought to life by sublime voice-acting, this felt like a cinematic, big-screen blockbuster where other contemporary strategies looked like they'd bumbled straight to video.

Memorable for...
Cult appeal. StarCraft went on to become one of the most beloved sci-fi series ever, the thunderous franchise now including spin-off novels, action figures, model kits and even a board game. Now you can live StarCraft 24/7.
