Zen And The Art of StarCraft

Zen and the Art of StarCraft

Don’t tell my fiance but she will always be my second love. My first love was and continues to be the game of StarCraft (SC). Billed as the most difficult game, SC and now SC II (which is free to play, by the way, if you want to check it out or rekindle a lost romance) is like chess on LSD. The original e-sport, players gather minerals and produce units, which are then used to fight for control of the map. SC is such a beautiful game because it requires both broad strategic thinking, sharp tactical prowess, and precise control over your units (micro).
