Warcraft is a computer video game series with a complete fiction mythos. When you bought Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (1994 DOS & Mac; the first game) and installed it on your 486 or mac, you witnessed the birth of a new era (though the pixels look rather large, in retrospect). This first game provided very detailed and yet accessible and action-oriented strategic scenarios and plot movements.
Since then, the Warcraft series has come a long way. From tabletop role-playing to multiplayer online, Blizzard has created an amazingly diverse albeit dark world in which to relax and take a break from it all.
