Well, with starcraft 2, im just expecting an updated version of the old game. But spore is an entirly new game, and very unique one at that, so im hyping spore more.

i was never a huge fan of starcraft but i admired the factionsin the game.....spore looks really new and refreshing unlike the sims.

i'm hyping both so i'd pick spore if ther was a poll *hint hint* just cause its unique.

Spore and Starcraft 2 can't be ccompared they are entirely based on taste.. Thats of course when their released they live up to what is expected of them.

But If I was to choose one it would be Starcraft 2.

I would love to hype Spore, but at this point, the game is all a few screenshots and limited movies. It has nothing else to show for it except for a release date that may now be pushed to March 2009. Spore is a game that I was big on because it was so ambitious, but now I am wondering if Wil Wright has finally bitten off more than he can chew. It was nowhere to be found at E3, which with EA pumping their causal focus, it had no presence.

Starcraft 2 is a force to be reckoned with, but I want to see some new gameplay ideas. I do not want to see a new tile set and a rehash of a game from a decade ago.

Hands down spore. SC 2 looks like regurgitated garbage from those vids they showed, the sequel to the best RTS is a clone with slightly improved graphics, soo unimpressed.

You can't really compare them. They are 2 different games.

At the pace spore is going, it will end up being starcraft 3 vs spore

But im still more hyped for spore even though im a big rts fan. spore looks totally awsome

Definitely Spore, just because it's a unique concept, and no one's tried to do something like it before.

At this rate it seems like sporse may grow some sporse by the time it does come out. Anyways I'm all for Starcraft 2 can't wait until it comes out. It really looks nice.

I never looked into Spore, so I have no idea. I could never get into Starcraft (although I beat the first one, not the expansion), no matter how many of my friends were all into it. Just couldn't ever get into it, at all. Nonetheless, Starcraft 2 should lay down the line for a lot of RTS games.

definitely spore I mean there is not a game out like it but there is hundreds of strategies like start-craft.

Spore, I'm losing interest though. They are doing the same thing as with The Sims 2. All the stuff that came with Sims 2 expacks was already in Sims expacks. Or at least most of it. They purposely leave things out of the game.

Easily spore is the MUCH more interesting game. Actually it's the most interesting game since....the dawn of gaming.

As much as I want to look forward to Spore I just can't. It does in fact seem like it will play out like the Sims almost... Starcraft 2 ftw. If it is like Starcraft with better graphics, that would still be awesome.

i realize that starcraft was pretty revolutionary for its time but i mean come on, even warcraft3 is better than starcraft as an rts. spore is actually trying to create a new hybrid genre between rts and simulation. all starcraft2 looks like it is adding to the original is better graphics and larger battles. no offense to koreans but you seriously need to stop playing starcraft, that game is some s*** now the year is 2008, not 1998.

ive been following spore since early 06, and my hypemeter for this game has already overflowed.

Starcraft 2..it will have an amazing campaign and a great multiplayer I'll play for years...heres the thing with spore..it just seems to have expectations that are impossibly high to deliver on and since its being made by EA the release date will no doubt be pushed when the game could use 6 more months of polish...I'm sure it will be fun, but probably about an 8-8.5 type game..

Starcraft 2...but you realy shouldnt compare 2 games from 2 different genres. And for the next time, start a poll on threads like this.

Spore, solely because it comes out sooner, and the fact that ive never played Starcraft.

BTW to the guy above me, it seems like hes talking about hype, you can compare games easily that way. Since its only a popularity contest.

Starcraft II. I know the basic idea behind Spore is cool and all and has never been seen before and all, but I'm just not hyped for it.

I am more interested in Spore, though I will probably check out Starcraft 2 if the singleplayer campaign is good & lengthy.

Starcraft 2. No way in hell will I let a relatively peaceful god game beat down a super-explosive ultra-fast paced RTS, that on top of it all has the most kickass map editor in history. I'm not saying it's going to be the greatest game ever, but SC2 will definitely be more long-lived than Spore.

is that a joke? you can argue about the awsome multiplayer in sc2, but longterm gameplay? isn't that the main focus of spore?

He's not comparing them, he's asking which one people are hyping more about.

For me it has to be Starcraft 2 because I absolutely loved the original Starcraft and wondered for years why they never made a sequel.

A game doesn't have to be revolutionary to be good. If a game does what it sets out to do perfectly, it is a success. And just because a game is revolutionary does not mean it is automatically good. Spore could be an incredible game. It could also be a complete flop. Starcraft 2 is more likely to be a big success just based off of it's reputation and fanbase. And based on the quality of the original Starcraft + Brood Wars, it is very likely to be a good game.

If you don't like that particular genre, that's fine. But seriously, there can only be so many revolutionary games before its all been done before.

I don't think he was joking..starcraft is still being played 10 years later and EA will have released spore 3 by then so...

Starcraft 2 hands down. It looks amazing and has tons of new stuff. Spore will be fun but it just isn't as deep.
