Starcraft 2: Raynor on the Rocks

this has been out for a while, but i figured since i try to update on quality video game animation, i ought to talk about the potential of StarCraft 2:

i've always been impressed by the Blizzard cut-scenes in terms of graphics wise, and of course the RTS portion of the games are addictingly well-done (in the day, only Westwood really was any competition with the Red Alert series before folding and passing on the reins to other companies). the RTS portion of the new game also looks pretty good

the original cut scenes admittedly look much more dated, but i think Blizzard has a great sense of visual (and aural for that matter) storytelling. reminisce or witness anew:

what are some of your favorite cut scenes from games?

  1. Wow.. I was going to say, I like the little cut scenes from super mario bros. after you beat a castle, and the egg thanks Mario and he destroys the castle, a different way each time. It's cartoony and cute :) But these are much more elaborate and realistic.. I guess video games have come a long way since the 90s
