    Alas, Pre-CU SWg was the best MMO I ever played. Thankfully I got 2 years in before they ruined it :(

    Activision made Call of Duty, so since it's like 4 billion times more popular (and better) than Crysis, it's basically the biggest shooter of the fall season (Unreal is better and Orange Box is funner, but Cod is the biggest). Along with Guitar Hero, that basically puts them on the map as one of the biggest developers on the planet.

    I personally see them more as brokers than game developers

    All the idiotic pessimists who are speaking about Blizzard's death because it decided to merge with Activision are absolute morons.

    Activision is nothing bad. Even Vivendi isn't all that terrible. Besides, it doesn't have any impact whatsoever on their games... nothing is going to happen, you douchebags.

    EDIT: Yes, Valve is great. You might also want to include Bungie, since I'm pretty sure the Halo fanbase alone makes them ridiculously popular... or at least known.

    Cs = Valve, as well as Team Fortress, Half Life, Garry's Mod, etc. It's just full of win.

    And yeah, gotta tack Bungie up there. Halo PC is definetly ftw :p Well it was anyway, but now it's just too old, and sadly Halo 2 Vista just doesn't live up to it :(

    I don't like First Person Shooters that much. I usually suck at them. I like Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior, but I play Warhammer 40k so I am primed into liking it not to mention I play the racestarring in the game (Tau ftw)

    Activision has quite a few good games, not that i can name any off the top of my head. I just hope that when Blizzard fuses with Activision they don't make bastardised versions of their own games, like Square Enix did. Square Soft had awesome games but almost every Square Enix game I have played is a pile of BS that isn't worth the disk it is written on.

    I don't think blizz will change that much. Look at what they have done by themselves. If I were Vivendi I would see no reason whatsoever to change any of that. I wouldn't even want to touch it in fear that I might screw something up. But I think this opens Blizzard up. To what I don't know. Could be good, could be bad, could be nothing at all. Any change wouldn't likely be as a direct result of this. But it does throw in another variable that has yet to be defined.

    I am not saying any changes will be made to Blizzard, I am saying changes will be made to Activision, Will, which will ruin a perfectly fine company like Vivendi has slowly been corrupting Blizzard.

    Sadly enough, when WotLK comes out, that will be the Warcraft4 since people are fighting Arthas. WoW is Wc4 pretty much.

    Now what activist and blizzard should agree apon is to destroy Dota forever...that would make Wc3 better.
