Everyone thinks Starcraft 2 is the greatest thing since sliced bread. And, while I agree that Starcraft 2 is a fantastic game, I can’t agree with the statement in its entirety.
I mean, where would we be without sliced bread? You can’t butter a piece of Starcraft 2 or make a turkey, bacon, and Starcraft 2 sandwich. It just doesn’t work. The Zerg start harvesting pickles and pretty soon you have a mutalisk problem in your kitchen. Furthermore, there aren’t any downsides to sliced bread. I certainly can’t remember a time when sliced bread kept me up until 6 AM on a work night.
Granted, Starcraft is the most popular RTS of all time, with sales spanning two decades and the game becoming a national sport in South Korea, but sliced bread has been around since 1928, when Frederick Rohwedder of Davenport, Iowa invented the first bread slicing machine, and has since become a worldwide phenomena! That makes it the longest running, most successful bread in history (eat that KeSPA)!
So, while Starcraft 2 is a perfectly balanced RTS game, set on a rich and imaginative landscape, I just can’t imagine a world where I’d have to slice my own bread. I think I could get by in a world without Starcraft 2, because there’s always the original Starcraft, but not without sliced bread… at least until they come out with sliced bread 2.
