    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    Looking back with hindsight, the Starcraft campaigns are... repetitive.

    Ep1: Raynor rebels, gets betrayed
    Ep2: Kerry hunts down her enemies
    Ep3: Artanis fights extinction
    Ep4: Artanis fights...

    Tura, the reason I like the zerg is because they tried to make the devouring swarm trope somewhat more interesting to read about by anthropomorphizing them enough to make them vaguely sympathetic and...

    Has anybody here played Sid Meierís Alpha Centauri?

    The ideologies in that still set standards for today.

    I wish that the sides in Starcraft were even a fraction as deep.

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    I know franchises are prone to bad writing.

    The new She-Ra show is terrible.

    The key difference is that people actually criticize She-Ra.

    Horde Prime is an even more shallow and poorly...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    The problem is exactly that Starcraft was not intended to be a franchise. The sides didnít get any foundation or ideology, but instead the charactersí personal desires and vendettas carried the...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    Yep.

    The manual included short bios for six factions for each race. (Modeled after the Alliance nation and Horde clan bios in WC2 manual.) Did this ever play a role in the games? Nope!

    It was a stupid idea to shoehorn sequels after a story that was never intended to have sequels or support a wider universe. If you want sequels or a wider universe, then you need to prepare for that...

    Re: SC2 now officially on life support

    I agree to an extent. I donít like the way Mengsk was centered in the terran lore and prefer an actual confederation like they described on the 1996 website.

    I donít like Raynor and Kerry for the...

    What I meant is that the war as depicted oneshot in SC1 could have feasibly been expanded into an arc spanning multiple games. The period depicted in episode 1 where the three sides fight over terran...

    The story being mediocre wouldn't annoy me as much if the fanboys didn't constantly praise it and chase me out of the fandom for not worshiping Kerry.
