Completely agree on the story. I remember reading through that little lore book that came with War3 and memorizing every detail of the lore. It was just so rich and filling.Warcraft III is still the best blizzard game ever made. Overall, it's true. It was the last "old blizzard" game, before they started to suck.
I'd like a Warcraft IV made by the not-crazy people. I'd rather have a new universe though. WOW torpedoed the lore completely, so now it is a cluster **** mess.
Now I hear friends talk about WoW and I'm sitting there going "that doesn't make sense, because this happened".
