    D2 vs Starcraft VOTE

    As was expected when gamespy put both of these games in the same bracket, they are fighting it out for the bracket winner. I've played both games and love them each... but no game has sucked away as many hours(days/months/years) of my life like D2, so it gets my vote. Anyway, whatever your choice, you should at least vote. When 2 blizzard titles like these duke it out, you know it's gonna be a great fight.

    Starcraft would get my vote since it is the best game of it's genre (RTS).

    There is a reason it has become a whole sports discipline.

    While I had alot of trouble deciding between Starcraft and Counterstrike, I eventually decided I'd vote for Starcraft, since while I like both games alot, 1.6 and STEAM has just put Counterstrike that little bit behind Starcraft....

    What would really be a shame is if Blizzard fans split between D2 and Starcraft and CS ran away with the win (though not likely).
    Starcraft has a very good chance to win it all.

    Starcraft has a;ready started to scorth diablo almost 2:1, with CS well in behind. As much as I like starcraft I still feel diablo is a better game (heck what game do you play more NOW)?

    I wish they had not done it this way, but it cannot be undone. My vote goes to D2, because of it's replayablility value and because I have played the Diablo series since the get go.

    Diablo introduced, to me at least, the hack & slash "RPG", a genre that continues even today. Look at the other great games that have come out of it such as the Bladur's Gate and Icewind Dale series. Even today, the brand new, soon to be released game, Sacred, follows the style of Diablo. For me, starcraft just can't keep up, and I am never truly hooked on it (whether that be for better or for worse).

    Show the world how great D2 is, and let's prove that the dii.net forums have more support to show than the starcraft communities.

    i voted for diablo, but it seems hopeless as starcraft is well over 1000 votes in the lead at this point.

    Starcraft is in the lead, so unless you want the Blizzard community to split in half and let CS take the cake, support SC. :)

    Starcraft sucks at life. I'll kill it in the face.

    This was an easy one.
    1)I don't like strategy games.
    2)So I haven't tried Starcraft more than some demo many years ago - and I didn't like it.
    3)I don't like FPS games (more than the first Unreal, but that was because of the environment, the music and the gloomy feeling).
    4)So I haven't tried Counter strike (I tried Halflife and I hated it).
    5)So I voted for Diablo II, my dear old friend and the greatest obstacle in the task of "doing important things".

    I have to severely disagree with you... Starcraft and Counterstrike have great replayability, as great if not more so than Diablo (if you like RTS and tactical FPS, if you don't well of course you won't like them). Also, Baldur's gate did NOT come out of diablo... the games are COMPLETELY different, Diablo 2 is a hack and slash action game with RPG elements (the items, the character leveling and such), but Baldur's gate is about as close to a true rpg as you will get on a video game without it turning stupid. You make choices, you can choose and evil or good path, you can develop your characters personality, there are alignments, the storyline is more RPG like, and just in general everything about it.

    Please do not say BG came from Diablo...

    And while yes Diablo is a game I like to play, I play it when I'm braindead or something... I play WC3/SC when I feel like playing a game that takes thought and CS when I just kinda wanna play a game that's alot more suspenseful and tense....

    Starcraft still has a pretty big following and it's 8 years old with 256 colors graphics, I think that says something :)

    Indeed, my command of the vernacular is superior to most. Indubitably. Verily.

    No man. Baldur's Gate II is pretty much midway between Diablo II and Planescape: Torment when it comes to the balance of combat versus storyline. As for Baldur's Gate I... that was just awful. :lol:

    (BGII is still a fantastic game though)

    Anyway considering I can't vote for Torment, I guess I'll go with... Starcraft. I have some very fond memories of that game (wonder if it's because I barely touched battle.net...).

    Starcraft is IMO the best game ever, even tho its hard to compare to diffrent genres.

    SC gets my vote (and 4000 from my voting bot :lol: )

    The only game I like more than Diablo II is Age of Empires II and since that game is already knocked out of the tournament, D2 gets my vote. :winner:
