For all those not aware:Bobbly Kotick took a failing Activision in 1993 and came from a 40 million dollar company to a whopping 4 billion dollar in 2009 too.So actually in the stock market he is considered a genious whether gamers like it or not.So indeed, Blizzard was not worth the 7 millions back then in 1995 and was worth every penny of the 7 billion in 2008.Why? Blizzard makes with only one game a turnover of around 1.3 billion dollar each year. So at this rate Blizzard is fully paid for in 2013, without even the extra benifit of SC2, Diablo 3 and the new mmorpg which will be launched around that time.A pure win- win for the 7 billion dollar buyer.While in 1995, a game compnay with 1 modest hits and 2 duds certainly was NOT worth the 7 million.

Let's admit it, Bobby Kotick is a man we all love to hate. Yet, I look at Blizzard and all it's games coming out, and they still seem original.Some will cry false about SC2 being broken up into 3 games and blaming Kotick (even I'll admit I was on the hate train there), but at the same time they have shown they are still committed to being the Blizzard we love, and Activision has really left them alone when it comes to it.So, I beg you, as one man who loves WoW just like all of you....can we please leave Kotick alone....and go back to what really needs to be addressed?And that is, why aren't we hating Garrosh or Fandrel this much!? SERIOUSLY!! This is just plain good trolling going to waste...I say we re-direct it to the official forums about our hatred for the above 2...and start a clubYes....better than the I.H.A.T.E.W.A.R.L.O.C.K.S committee...It will be the Legion of Garrosh/Fandrel Haters Union! We'll meet this Sunday to discuss it, and their will be milk and cookies. And cake....lot's of cake

2 duds? I assume you were referring to one of them as The Lost Vikings. You do know that is one of the most popular puzzle games of all time, right? It was ported to almost every platform at the time, it has has a sequel. It's still being released today. You can even get it for the Game Boy Advanced. Clones of it exist everywhere.
