              You just said you didn't know Warhammer, so your opinion is worthless.

              Warhammer is just a reskinned mishmash of Dune and LotR

              Reskin and Mishmash is a contradiction. Your argument is self defeating.

                Apart from introducing some new ideas into RTS games it did nothing special. HL2 completely revolutionised gaming in a way that every single modern FPS/TPS game uses what it established over a decade ago.

                Meanwhile no one fucking cares about single player FPS games, they all play them for the multiplayer. TES3 and GTA3 were more influential than HL2 in that people still care about the concepts they introduced, story based single player FPS games turned out to be a relative fad.

      >DUDE corruption lmao
      It needed something else, you can't just give corruption as your answer to everything. Like half or more of the races in the game were spawned from corruption, almost every motive is ultimately just an excuse to get corrupted, everyone is constantly striving towards corruption. It's okay for the human campaign, but gets tedious beyond that. The only other interesting part of the game was the starting orc campaign, which was about exploring and taming a foreign land, which of course quickly devolves into corruption fetishism.

      It's incredible how badly WoW butchered the lore, and almost immediately too, TBC was a clusterfuck and Wrath, while cool, really wasn't a satisfying conclusion to the wc3 plots. Everything beyond that may as well be fan fiction.
      Anyway, I get that Warcraft lore has never been amazing, it's mostly a pastiche of warhammer, lotr, & d&d thrown together by a bunch pf drunk nerds, it wasn't shakespeare. But that's almost exactly what made it work, it was just fun and campy, and told in a really enjoyable way and built a rich fantasy world with some cool fresh twists. It was dope. And while the story format of the rts games could never fully translate to an mmo, vanilla wow did a decent job of worldbuilding and making you feel like azeroth was a living world. The story wasn't huge stakes, but it didnt need to be, warcraft always thrived on that element of adventure and mystery.
      And then starting in TBC they just started making every poor decision possible. They treated major lore characters with zero respect, started retconning shit flippantly, dropping plotlines left and right. Important zones like azjol nerub were just dropped, and they abandoned any continued worldbuilding of azeroth to keep cramming in new, retconned continents every xpac. It's a joke. Again, it was never great, but they threw out all attempts at internal consistency, characterization, anything. All they had to do was follow the beats set up in wacraft, there was a logical story progression leading ip to sargeras that they just shat all over to make their stupid oc shit, it's astounding, you could write a book on it, its like step by step how not to write a story

          the original blizzard team may not have told spectacular narratives, but they had a really good and strong sense of aesthetics and symbolism. an image says a thousand words, etc.
          you can look at their cinematics and early art, and immediately get a very strong sense of exactly how the characters being presented are like. wow actually does this well also. or did, anyway.

            agreed. samwise and metzens art was iconic.

            did aby of you ever play with the WC3 map editor? like

            [...]
            The WC3 map maker tool was incredible in what it let you make. Even a retard like me was easily able to put together whole, complex maps with cinematics and everything in them, though they broke apart fast since I just used the 'kinda like coding but for retards' system they had innate rather than learning to actually code better scripts.

            But at some point down the line of game updates, all my custom maps broke and now I can't even open them anymore. Sad.

            said it's such an intuitive and fun engine to craft worlds in, it really lets your imagination run wild. You can get into it and really feel how the vision of warcraft came about from the spirit of some loose nerds, playing warhammer and smoking joints, doodling sketches of dwarves drinking beer, listening to metal and talking about wizards and badass knights, and they had such a great tool to bring it to life. The game is just dripping in, dare I say soul, and I think thats why its spawned so many successful fangames and of course wow.

    Play Warcraft 3 custom campaigns from hiveworkshop. Some of them are fucking great. You might need specific versions of WC3 to play some of them since they're intended for certain patches, but you can find these in places.
