Starcraft won Walk of Game Star

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized

Starcraft recently won the Walk of Game Award recognizing the best legends in the video games industry. A star to Starcraft will be unveiled later during 2006 at the Metreon Building in San Francisco. Since its debut in 1998, the #1-selling StarCraft series has won industry acclaim and has shattered sales records worldwide with over nine million copies sold. Blizzard continued the series with the critically acclaimed StarCraft: Brood War?, which won multiple Expansion Pack of the Year awards and is still considered by many critics to be one of the best add-on products to date.

Walk of Game is the first-of-its-kind landmark honoring the icons and pioneers of the videogame industry.

Walk of Game is located inside Metreon, a 350,000 square-foot entertainment complex at Fourth and Mission Streets in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

Every year, gamers worldwide cast their vote on to induct the next set of honorees to receive a permanent 24″x 24”, customized steel star on the Walk of Game. From the list of nominees, the top four in the category of Games/Characters and the top two in Lifetime Achievement will be inducted.

The list of nominees is compiled from a survey of industry members and technology, entertainment, and gaming media. SCA Interactive, a leader in online promotions, powers the Walk of Game voting interface.
