Let’s just assume that I’ve already grumbled about walking to school uphill in the snow both ways for miles without shoes, and furthermore that I’ve told you to get off my lawn. Okay. Now we can talk about how, long ago, StarCraft, WarCraft and Diablo were the coolest computer games around.

If you or someone you love is in need of a hefty dose of nostalgia that includes either aliens or orcs, you’ll want to check out today’s Video Game Deal of the Day at Amazon; choose from three different Battle Chest packages of PC gaming in the flavor that strikes your fancy.

If you’re truly a geek, you’ve already played them. But maybe you want to do it all again. Or maybe you just want to get all old-timey for the first time.

(My favorite part is the “Attack!” cry on WarCraft. Makes me giggle every single time.) (Oops! I’ve said too much!)


  1. Ok, this is a special sort of crazy, but my husband still owns his Diablo packaging, among other games. ugh.

  2. #Anna: does he still own the game disks? Or just the box?

    My ex was notorious for having loaned out the disks, never getting them back, and keeping the boxes. Cracked me up!

  3. My husband will want to check this out … but probably has most of the games.
    He complains that nothing good (in the style he likes) has come out in games in the past 5-10 years

  4. Ha ha ha – I love those games!! We still have the original Warcraft and Diablo, and because of our satellite internet (stupid HUGHES), we can’t play the other online Warcraft. Probably a good thing, or I’d spend all day doing thing.

    Okay – have to say it – “yes, Sire”

  5. Beth, yes, I think he does, but he would do that, too!

  6. Beth, yes, I think he does, but he would do that, too!
