Theres no doubt that blizzard used a fair good amount of the w40k universe starting by the tyranids (which are a ripoff from the Alien movie anyway...) in games like starcraft and warcraft. Im not a w40k fan but I can tell lore, story, plot and art are by far superior, however Starcraft and Warcraft are by far better games both have passed the test of time. Starcraft 2 is considered the best rts game EVER created worldwide maybe singleplayer might be a dumbed down version of w40k but the game shines in its multiplayer which like it or not is unrivaled. Just see all the clones it created like Lol, Dota, etc. Conclusion SC best video game than W40K.

also 40k space marines get terminator armour

while 40k is harder to play (cause it is based around models) it beats starcraft because you can custumize your forces appearance and zerglings are miniature hormagaunts.

The video cannot be serious comparing the Tyiranids to the SC2 zergs!  The first tyranids were very different from what they are now and I think the zerg were created before the tyranid design changed to become what it is now. For the protoss however, Blizzard never hid they took the Tau design.

#1 Space Marines in StarCraft do not use swords, chainsaws or any melee weapon #2 Space Marines in StarCraft are also not based on some medieval-catholic-knight motif either. #3 Kinda lacking awesome? How so? Here's my pointless opinion, it doesn't. #4 Ripped off of aliens, 40K, sorry, most bug aliens do. #5 SC contains 0 orks "orcs" #6 No analogue to the Protoss? hmm.. #7 Idiotic post-video comment prediction, how pathetic. Essentially pointless waste of time.

Ok, since I like both games, I am compelled to say someting: SC is a ripoff WH but still is unique in its own way, kinda. You could say that SC is dumbed down version of WH and that is the only reason why it has been more succesfull. Fact: people are stupid and like being handed a simple storyline, which, in SC case is of three races strugling for power and dominance in our galaxy. WH has a similar premise, but the background of each race (and there are many more of them then in SC) is much, much more intersting. In SC, humans are there, evolved and badass because fuck you that's why, zerg are there for the sake of scary, evil aliens and protoss (mixture of eldar and tau, in my opinion) are there also, because you always need an ancient and wise race to balance good and evil cause otherwise everything would go to hell right? However, in WH each race, including humans, has a story which explains how exactly it got to where it is right now. Empire (humans), Orks, Eldar, Tau, Tyranids, Necrons (most fun of all the way I see it), Chaos... they all have stories of their genesis, who are, at the very least, fun to learn. Guys, it's not always about shooting, hacking, slashing, disentegrating, smashing and ultimately killing, story matters alot more than any of those things. But, WH doesn't beat SC just in it's storyline, but gameplay as well. Dawn of War 1 with its mods and all (well, just one right mod is enough) beats ANY scifi strategy game any day, even Dawn of War 2. Still, I do play SC sometimes, almost as much as WH. Why? It's fun :)

Also youve NEVER seen Warhammer as sucessful as starcraft, starcraft is rewarding,great story,intresting units with great dialog, great graphics,and a WCS champion ship games every season or 2. also there is around 2,000,000 starcraft players on a daily AVERAGE

Actually before, the first Warhammer thing created was a tabletop game, it had NO models back then, yes i still have the set, then Starcraft 1 came out and then the Dawn of War series for Warhammer started, Yes, the only similaritys are the models, the Lore and Story are Way different. Starcraft's Models were created first but Warhammer made a Tabletop game. In my Eyes Warhammer copied Starcraft. and to all of you Warhammer fanboys out there, i used to be a warhammer fanboy and Starcraft Fanboy
