Default Re: StarCraft II breaks the record for fastest selling RTS of all time

SCII is very well in contention for GOTY. However, I think Mass Effect 2 is right up there as well. Both games are extremely polished, run great on modern hardware, have great stories, great gameplay, beautiful graphics, gorgeous cinematics, and a very loyal fan base. The gameplay mechanics are also spot-on in both titles. The only difference is one is a RTS, while the other is an RPFPS (I made that up. )

Those are my 2 GOTY guesses.

I'm not surprised at the success of SC II. I am surprised that I was able to get a copy at my local wal-mart the night AFTER it was released. I expected every last copy of the game to be long gone. Apparently, they were gone everywhere else.

SCII is definitely one of the few games that has impressed me immensely from all fronts. Blizzard is one of the few game developers left that can be considered "over achievers" in their field, and it really shows in SCII.




On a side note, has Blizzard broken a profit from this game yet?

Red Dead Redemption was an awesome game, and as I mentioned elsewhere, one of the best games I've ever played. So yeah, good chance it will be GOTY, but PC wise. SC2 is right up there.
