I remember loving the Warcraft Series and going to a game store in 1998 (I think it was around Halloween) because I had wanted to get another RTS. I remember picking up two games and trying to decide which one to get. I had in my hands Total Annihilation and Starcraft, and I couldn’t figure out which one to get. I was leaning for Starcraft because of what everyone had said about it, but I wanted to be sure. It wasn’t until I read that it was made by the same people that made Warcraft (Blizzard, obviously) that I went with Starcraft.
To this day I have never played Total Annihilation and I regret it. Starcraft was amazing, but I still should have picked up TA at some point.
I probably won’t play the new one out of guilt…
