Some videos of players using armies of hydralisks? Why would I want to do that when there are plenty of replays out there of good players?

There's nothing difficult about countering armies of a single type of unit in SC.

No. Videos of the korean tournaments who would make you see your foot is lodged deeply in your mouth :)

I've watched several of them, and I've never once seen anyone win purely by massing Hydras.

Could you post a link to one of these replays?

It should be an easy matter to prove me wrong.

In  conclusion, Starcraft wasnt influential. Next item on the agenda: Theme Park.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Starcraft was VERY influential. It paved the road for future rts games mention starcraft to any gamer today and they know exactly what it is. Not to mention i log on to battle net everyday and tons and tons and tons still play (not just koreans). A game does not have to introduce something new to be influential

Now this ain't an old game but i say resident evil 4 is very influential just look at how many games are copying the camera/control/aiming style

Simply stating that it's irrational to say that StarCraft wasn't influential.

Keep beating the dead horse PHI, maybe it'll suddenly get up.

I would say Resident Evil has had some influence somewhere down the line as far as survival horror (aka take doom, take away 90% of all the weapons, ammo and items, and take away 25% of the monsters) goes. There wasn't too much before it that I can recall except maybe Clock Tower.

I wouldn't exactly call it influential. Just very cool. Shame they ruined the series after Armageddon.

Worms 3D was very good and didn't ruin anything.
