DAW Week – Blizzard

484308_329208940493181_179418153_nWell it’s Developers Appreciation Week, a week started by my friend Scarybooster many a moons ago. First off I can’t believe it’s here already. Time just flew.

I want to show some love to Blizzard. You might be saying to yourself, why the hell would I show those money grabbing bastards any love. Their game is old, and trite. Love them or hate them, they gave us a lot, and I’m here to return that. 

1. Blizzard is more than World of Warcraft - They made such wonderful games oh like Diablo, and a little title called Starcraft. I remember the first  Starcraft was one of my favorite RTS games, and it still is for the most part. Many a nights, me and my friends would play LAN games until the wee hour of the mornings.

2.Blizzard made a culture icon - World of Warcraft has surpassed just a game, it’s a megalith of nerd culture. It was a question on Jeopardy for Heaven’s sake.

3.Blizzard has given me a lot – They have not given me not hours, but years of entertainment, and I’m not talking since 2004. Since late 90′s with Warcraft I : Orcs versus Humans

Yes you can say Blizzard doesn’t need appreciation, you may say Blizzard doesn’t need anything. I still am thankful for them, because they given me, and others so much. So if you ever shouted, For the Horde, or For the Zerg you know where I’m coming from.
