There is a bit of conflicting information on the timeline of early Azeroth - What came first, the Titans or the Old Gods? Some tellings have the Old Gods on Azeroth along with their Elemental Lords when the Titans first arrive, others have the Titans begin shaping Azeroth, only to have the process interrupted by the arrival of the Old Gods.The Old Gods are not entities of evil, but more entities of Chaos. The Titans, on the other hand, are entities that strive to bring Order to the universe. So they encountered Old Gods on Azeroth - beings that were the antithesis of their mindset - and decided that they could not allow the Old Gods to continue in their current existence.However, they discovered that removing the Old Gods would be detrimental to the planet, and so instead buried them in the ground and set about their plans to bring Order to Azeroth - while at the same time installing some Watchers to keep an eye on the imprisoned Old Gods and evolving up some Dragons. The Old Gods elemental armies were banished to their respective elemental planes.So the Old God's we've encountered so far aren't necessarily driven entirely by "evil." They're seeking revenge on the Titans by both trying to reclaim Azeroth but at the same time adding a bit of Chaos to the creations of the Old Gods - seen in things such as the "Curse of Flesh" as well as driving Nefarian the Earthwarder insane.
