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.
