Episode: “Make Love, Not Warcraft” (s10e8)
Original Air Date: October 4, 2006

Blizzard cemented its RTS dominance well over a decade ago, and one of the flagship titles propelling the company's success was StarCraft. StarCraft II may be a step up in a litany of ways, but the impact created by the original can't be overshadowed. The competitive major league StarCraft battles, especially in South Korea, only hint at the addictive potential of the intergalactic arms race between the Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. The far-reaching tendrils of StarCraft earned it a spot on the wall in the conference room at Blizzard during the Jenkins World of Warcraft crisis. Kerrigan be praised.
