Fantastic article. WarCraft brought something new to the high-fantasy table. Dungeons and Dragons arrived with its ever expansize IP, strange artwork, and odd, complicated universe filled with different dimentions, theologies, and bizzare creatures. Warhammer brought good ol' fashioned gothic, english fantasy with all of its heroic grittiness in tact. Lord of the Rings was very neutral in its style. Which is odd since it essentially created the modern market for high-fantasy. There was, however, something that had yet to be used in high-fantasy until the nineties. WarCraft brought light. Warhammer was dark, Dungeons and Dragons was strange and alienating, but WarCraft was a universe with true light and true beauty. It brought heroes fighting in a universal war for Light and faceless evil beings trying to oppress them. It brought lots of true struggle and visual appear. Really, it brought everything everyone wanted. WarCraft has a little something for everyone. -Wildhammer
