I believe you

I agree... I've enjoyed most of their games so far

Starcraft II and Diablo III  = happy gamer

I hope they come up with a new title after those though, milking big name franchises is great but me wants some more Blizz variety!

Yep. Warcraft III was one of my favourite games.

I immensely respect Blizzard because they have shitty graphics. Shows they have their priorities straight

Have to say, after 14 years of using this name, I'm still surprised by how many people recognize it. Goes to show that even 15 years ago they knew good games when they saw them.  But, it's always weird when I play Rock and Roll Racing nowadays and hear Loud Mouth Larry saying it out loud.

Also I don't find that they necessarily have bad graphics. Low poly sure, but the quality of the textures more than makes up for it. Plus most of the bad looking screen shots you see on the web are from people running at the very low visual quality options that are available on all Blizzard games. With the settings turned up, they got some very pretty games.

Another thing that might makes their graphics seem bad is that a lot of people still play their games 5-10 years after they were made. Any game looks bad after that long. I know quite a few people that only started playing Diablo or Starcraft long after the expansions for each had been available. As much as 3-4 years past their initial release.

i stared playing Starcraft in 2004, now my favorite game of all time, even though i don't like the  single player campaign.

WoW disgraces Blizzard's name, but SCII and D3 make up for it. :)

When Blizzard releases a new original game that is not a sequel and if that is a good game then ill agree with you.

They are great, but not the best out there. IMO.
