Hey, Kotaku. Today's been wild, and I've been unable to track down the requisite number of random off-topic things for you to discuss.

So instead, let's pick an optional theme for tonight's open thread. A reader wrote in to ask what I thought about how in their view, there are only a few flavors of Blizzard game. They're all good flavors, sure, but Blizzard seems awfully committed to maintaining those few flavors rather than trying anything new.

I get that argument, but I also see the other side of it—why change something if it works? I leave it to you: Discuss, if you will, the flavors of Blizzard. Starcraft, World of Warcraft, Diablo—how do they compare? Which do you prefer? Which would you like to see changed?

Or you know, since it's an open thread... talk about anything else.

Have good chatting, see you tomorrow.
