They have a lot in common...  
-Both are coming from highly received original titles 
-Both games have extremely polished albeit shorter single player campaigns. 
-Both games have excellent multiplayer that are a bit hard to get into since the communities are generally very experienced. 
-Both games had boycotts. 
-Both games are published by Activision, and cost more money than they probably should.

RTS games will never be as accessible as a First Person Shooter.

I'd say that Starcraft 2 is the new Starcraft.

No it would not work on another steam account. 
 
Also no, it's not the new MW2. Actually, MW2 isn't even the new MW2 anymore.

Not really. 
SC2 is way harder to get into than MW2, which means not as many non-gamers will play it. 
Also SC2 is only on PC, and that limits the number of people that will play it. This means that it's playerbase will not be as big, especially not with the non-gamer crowd.

Short single player? In MW2 the sp on normal took about 5-6 hours while the SC2 sp on normal takes about 10-12 which is about normal for most games.

Modern Warfare 2, unlike Starcraft 2, is a buggy as hell awfully balanced game.

So what I like to do is pick Protoss with the "pain-killer perk" and "danger close" and just noob-tube my way to victory. Or if they pick Terran and try to 1/1/1 with a 6-rax build I camp in the corner with the Barett and yell racial slurs at him for letting me shoot him.

MW2 can be played by 14 year olds and has Joint Ops in it. SC2 is a very good strategic/tactical RTS.

Yes in the sense that they are sequels to great games, and no because sc2 came out good and should have after what 10 years, and mw2 was a pile of garbage thrown together last minute

The answer is that it won't work. Once tied to your steam account it's bound for life. Just like in wow.

Haha, no. 
And I don't know about it being hard getting into the online either because of the community being experienced.

MW was made so anyone can get kills with ease, SC2 sure in hell wasn't made that way.

Both games are generic first-person shooters... yes, I think I'm seeing the pattern.

To me it kinda looks like StarCraft II.  That might be too simple an answer, though...
