    Star-Craft Wins Hands Down....Graphics are better, Story is deeper and continued from first game They should of had Morgan Webb do the battle argument since everyone knows how much she loves the game :)

    Nice, she had an ocarina. Too bad she didn't really know how to play it. But it really is a fun instrument to play and isn't very hard to learn either!

    Personally, I like both series, but I've spent a lot more time with Zelda (obviously a lot more titles). But I also really do enjoy Starcraft. I didn't vote for the finals, but I probably would have gone with Zelda in the end. I definitely enjoy both, but I've got so much more from Zelda than from Starcraft over the years.

    That's the angriest I've ever seen Leah get about anything.

    There are only 2 things to be said about these ridiculous comments,
    and they are thus:

    1. Age does not determine what you like unless you've got some kind of brain lesion that makes you think you have to like what all your boring friends like.
    2. Stop dissing Leah or I'll send Jay and Silent Bob to your house.

    Zelda was cool in 1986. Starcraft remains cool.....FOREVER!

    For those who complain about Leah, she has not been in front of the camera very much and she is probably shy and nervous. Look at Morgan back in the day at techtv and look at her now. Nikole has done shows before she was on G4. I thought they both did a good job by the way, and Stephen is always awesome.

    Imo neither of these two games would be best franchise but it's all a matter of opinion anyway.

    If you're over the age of 21.... Starcraft wins ALTHOUGH Zelda will bring back good memories.

    If you're under the age of 21..Zelda will hold your hand while you fall asleep tonight.

    We "adult gamers" like our games to challenge us. Water Temple was a piece of cake. I actually want a game that I can dedicate 40 billion hours into mastering. That means I got my moneys worth. WoW is the one bad thing about Blizzard but everything else has been and is... Rocksteady.

    For those whining about learning how to play... it's called jumping into matches until you're good. Try it on a game besides COD.

    Videogame Deathmatch is a bit ludicrous if you ask me, which of course you did not do. I'm sure it has been mentioned before me that comparing these games would be like comparing apples to oranges.

    This video was humorous to watch though, kudos you beastly gangster cool cats at G4.

    And let the bias battles continue! It almost seems like voting for the damn US President! Everyone has their opinions, honestly, I could care less what others think about one of the two finalists on this! I voted to SC2, end of story! EAT IT!

    Personally I am not even sure how Starcraft even made it this far, that being said however, both games are equally great. RTS games do have great stories and although it may take longer to go through them you can't deny that there is great playback as well. Take for instance Starcraft which is online, great multiplayer and one of the founding games pushing professional gaming as we speak.

    Zelda for the most part has been the same bread and butter throughout the years but has been enjoyable through every single one. While there might not be any multiplayer aspects in terms of online, I continue to play through my old Zelda games often.

    Truthfully when comparing these games, it's really hard to because Zelda is a plat former, rpg, adventure style where Starcraft is simply an rts. If your going by terms of sales or fan base, well clearly Zelda is going to win, due to the fact it's been around since the birth of Nintendo. My vote goes for Zelda but give Starcraft some credit, Blizzard knows how to make a great game.

    I've tried to play StarCraft before, and I have to say, I don't want to play a game that wants to teach me how to play for an hour, and then successfully murder me if I don't do every little thing right. That was how every one of my experiences with Blizzard's wallet-gougers has been. With Zelda, it doesn't matter how old you are (I picked up my first Zelda at 5, my mom still plays and is in her 40s), because you can pick it up easily and continue forward. The fact that many of the stories are similar, in my opinion, is a plus. Nintendo found how to make Zelda sell every single time, and I don't want that ruined. I like knowing what the core idea behind the game is, while having surprises thrown in here and there.

    Zelda wins on two fronts: 1) it's a game with a wider appeal and 2) Nikole is better looking than the other cow.
