Celebrate 20 Years of Blizzard

Blizzard is one of those developers that seem like they’ve always been around. While they haven’t exactly released a large number of games, they’ve smartly taken the smart route of releasing quality games and nothing else. Even if you’re not a fan of the games, I don’t think anybody can deny the quality of the Warcraft, Starcraft, or Diablo.

Blizzard has launched a new website to help hurl you through their two decades of what is surely wonderful nostalgia for many fans, which will be updated throughout the year as they celebrate their 20th Year as a very beloved developer. Be sure to keep an eye on this throughout the year.

I remember hearing about a game called Warcraft from my friends and wondering what all the fuss was about. I went home and downloaded a demo for it on my computer, and for what would not be the first time in my gaming career I found myself heading out to purchase the full game the next day. What was your first Blizzard game or experience? Please share with us in the comments below.

John is what you might call something of a badass. When he's not writing about games or playing them, he's playing in the Kansas City band "Documentary" and drinking as many different beers as often as he can. He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
