Blizzard certainly take their time when it comes to sequels, but this one was easily worth the wait. After its arrival in 2010, StarCraft 2 quickly became one of the world's premier eSports, gaining gargantuan commercial success and playing an instrumental role in establishing eSports in the West.

On a smaller scale, StarCraft 2 is also a damn fine RTS, richly balanced and strategic and - like most of Blizzard's games - it's evidently built to last. The game's first expansion pack, Heart of the Swarm, took three years to finally see release.
