They should have remade the human campaign, if any.
Yeah,blizzard were always anti human company that worship demons. In all of their games is the same hatred for humanity,it gets pretty old after the first game you play.

World of Warcraft (released after that) was their last revolutionary game.
are you fucking nuts? wow introduced NOTHING new, it was the vanillaest, most cookie-cutter mmorpg ever. there was already stuff like anarchy online and its peculiar skill system, land conquest battles, already had instancing, free flight, extensive map, player city building, even random dungeons. all blizzard had was journos in their pocket ready to lie for them, saying "it sold 100m copies" when 99999999 were chink bot sweatshops or "it's their last revolutionary game" when it innovated absolutely zero.

Not sure if youngfags remember but throughout the 90s Blizzard was meme famous for stealing other devs' ideas. They burst onto the map after stealing Dune 2 gameplay so brazenly it got everyone laughing. Warcraft 1 was a shitty copypaste but to their credit they improved massively for the sequel and Starcraft BW is still the pinnacle of the genre.

Still, they've never done anything innovative, let alone revolutionary. Maybe except The Lost Vikings.

They innovated by making an MMO that got non-MMO players to play an MMO. Sure it's basic bitch babby mode compared to what was out at the time, but it became mainstream in a way that only games like Runescape can claim, and that's a can of worms on its own.

Blizzard have never innovated, they've always been great refiners. Which is not bad or that unusual, technically Bach didn't do anything new either (except maybe 1 thing for which he isn't even that known).

Revolutionary may be an inappropriate word. I meant they created a type of game that was different from the ones they were making up to that point, and the game was good enough to make it massively popular. "Having journos in their pocket ready to lie for them" wouldn't get them this far. All in all it WAS a peak for Blizzard and they were going downhill from there ever since.

Yup... the "everything is colorful" rainbow world. It plagues art direction to this day

Ah how much some games accomplished with 2-3 colors...
When games used only 2-3 colors we complained it was all brown and drab.

We aren't referring to the same things. I mean games such as Wizardry 6 or Perihelion. You must mean something like Fallout 3.

Generally I dislike games which don't opt for a color palette.
