Blizzard Entertainment® is a premier developer and publisher of entertainment software. After establishing the Blizzard Entertainment label in 1994, the company quickly became one of the most popular and well-respected makers of computer games. By focusing on creating well-designed, highly enjoyable entertainment experiences, Blizzard Entertainment has maintained an unparalleled reputation for quality since its inception.
While Blizzard have made several games in their time (all of which are free for discussion), I'll keep the OP related to their current IPs.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is a military science fiction real-time strategy video game developed and released by Blizzard Entertainment for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. A sequel to the award-winning 1998 video game StarCraft and its expansion set Brood War, the game was released worldwide on July 27, 2010. It is split into three installments: the base game with the subtitle Wings of Liberty, an expansion pack Heart of the Swarm, as well as an upcoming stand alone expansion pack Legacy of the Void.

The game revolves around three species: the Terrans, human exiles from Earth; the Zerg, a super-species of assimilated life forms;[8] and the Protoss, a technologically advanced species with vast mental powers. Wings of Liberty focuses on the Terrans, while the expansions Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void will focus on the Zerg and Protoss, respectively. The game is set four years after the events of 1998's StarCraft: Brood War, and follows the exploits of Jim Raynor as he leads an insurgent group against the autocratic Terran Dominion. The game includes both new and returning characters and locations from the original game.

Heroes of the Storm is an upcoming multiplayer online battle arena video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment for Microsoft Windows and OS X. The game utilizes a combination of heroes from Blizzard's Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft and other franchises and is set in the "Nexus." The game uses both free-to-play and freemium models and is supported by micropayments, which can be used to purchase visual alterations for the characters in the game. Blizzard does not call the game a "multiplayer online battle arena" or an "action real-time strategy" because they feel it is something different with a broader playstyle; they refer to it as a "Hero Brawler".

Overwatch is an upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter in development by Blizzard Entertainment. Unveiled on November 7, 2014 at BlizzCon, the game emphasizes cooperative gameplay using a cast of various "heroes", each with their own abilities and roles within a team. The game is scheduled to enter a closed beta phase in late 2015.
Overwatch will feature squad-based combat with two opposing teams of six players each. Similar to a multiplayer online battle arena game, players choose one of several hero characters, each with their own unique abilities and role classes. The four character roles include: offense-oriented characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense-oriented characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs for their allies such as healing and other boosts, and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks. Players can switch between characters in-game following deaths—a mechanism which is encouraged by the game's overall design. The game's maps are inspired by real-world locations.

So what do people play? At the moment I play everything bar Starcraft 2 (still need to get Heart of the Swarm) and Overwatch (for obvious reasons), though most of my attention at the moment is focused on WoW and Diablo 3 currently due to raiding and the current diablo season. Meanwhile I only play Hearhstone and HotS for the daily quests to keep on top of them presently, although I'm definitely up for playing both more (a Hearthstone tourney would be pretty good to set up if we have enough interest/people for it, and my interest in HotS is related directly to the amount of people I have to play it with regularly.)

i jumped back into Diablo 3 again the other day since its a great time killer, dont really have to think about what im doing in it since im not like a hardcore player or anything, just playing on my own for some fun

and my friend wants to start playing SC2 again but i was so useless at it, considering i used to play Command & Conquer all the time when i was younger, i just cant seem to pick SC2 up. watching the Katowice streams has definitely made me more interested though

Looking into Overwatch, and so far is looking pretty good and if I can run it then it may be the thing that takes up a lot of my free time.

Not 100% sure I'll pick up anything else, Heroes of the storm looks decent I guess but nothing much interests me that much

Never really wanted to get properly interested in the life stealer that is WoW but I do enjoy playing Hearthstone. Don't really have any of the top tier cards so I usually only play to keep up with quests or to play around with some fun gimmicky decks like running Deathlords and Mogashin Wardens along with divine spirit & inner fire. Or Hobgoblin, Hobgoblin always makes for fun games.

I found it boring after one game, but maybe everything other than Dota just seems simple to me

Bumping because there's not really been any Blackrock Mountain discussion, how are people finding things? Been running a Dragon Priest which is quite fun although it's been getting unlucky recently rip

Implying it's hard to get play as D.Va without ult. It's not like it's symmetra or zenyatta. Or Zarya even who simply features as a cameo with an amazing black hole before McGEEE high 12pms the helpless team.
