Who did it better in their prime?

Rare LTD 30 45.45%
Blizzard ENT 36 54.55%

Rare. Hands down Rare for me.

Dk64, Banjo Kazooie/Tooie, Diddy Kong Racing, Star Fox Adventures, Goldeneye 007, Donkey Kong Country 1-3 are some of my favorite gaming memories as a kid.

Warcraft 2 was awesome, but that series tanked at 3. WoW was never the best mmo in any era, StarCraft got a new game every 1000 years, Diablo 2 was popular but 3 disliked by many (I liked it more than 2). Overwatch was fun but just single player (lazy). Hearthstone was just a clone game.

Plus Rare had other games that people adored I never got a chance to play.

Blizzard for sure. Rare used to be a great Dev., But Blizzard was like "the best" for a time. I mean, they created diablo II, world of warcraft, starcraft, overwatch!! Rare can't be compared to Blizzard.
