20 Years of Blizzard

The Blizzard Entertainment 20th Anniversary Trailer offers "a message from Blizzard Entertainmentís founders, interviews with developers, video retrospectives, and more." There's also an interview on VentureBeat talking with Blizzard CEO Paul Sams on the occasion. Here's part of his look back: "Back in the early days, we didnít think 20 years out into the future. We didnít think it was possible to have the type of success we have been fortunate enough to have. But when I sit back and I reflect on these two decades, itís been an incredible ride for us. Weíve maintained our core mission of making the most out of our games. We focus on making the most epic entertainment experiences ever, and I think weíve really stuck with our values. It drives our decisions and has allowed us to provide a level of consistency in what weíve been able to deliver. We have been able to make many of the top-selling PC games in the world for many years. Itís tough to run a successful company for 20 years. We are very proud and humbled by it."

17 years of Blizzard. 3 years of Activision-Blizzard.

The last 3 weren't up to par. The next 20 probably won't, either.

Really now?

So WotlK, Cata and Starcraft 2 didn't do it for you eh? I suppose their absolutely ridiculously beyond industry average customer support and ridiculously beyond industry average support for their old titles didn't do it for you either.

Perhaps you're upset they're announcing games and going off about them well before those games release (I am big time, fyi, BUT)....except that's something they've always done well before Activision came along.

What exactly has Blizzard done the specific last three years that's sub-par? See, WoW has always been an unbalanced mess well before Activision, so all those hotfixes, balancing patches and all that jazz just doesn't count. WotLK was too easy, *complainers*, Cata is too hard, *complainers*,. Make up your mind WoW'ers. SC2 and its three-part series, whatever. A guaranteed two-expansions to the sequel of one of the most respected RTS series ever made. I would have killed for multiple well-made expansions to Diablo, Diablo 2 and about six dozen other franchises out there.

What has been sub-par these last three years, compared to the 17 previous? Go.

Edit: clarifications
