The general consensus accross the internet seems to be that Hearthstone is “totally lame.” I’m actually pretty excited about a free-to-play card game from Blizzard. I’ve always wanted to try the WoW trading card game, your deck being your character sounded awesome to me. I did watch a Hearthstone gameplay video though, and it doesn’t really look all that different from Magic. But I guess that’s not really a bad thing. I had a lot of fun with the second Duels of the Planeswalkers game on the 360.
The absolute best video game version of a TCG was the Pokemon one on Gameboy. It was amazing. You went from gym to gym, defeating trainers and getting badges, all with a deck of cards. There was actually a story.

– The name of Blizzard DOTA was changed to what sounds more like a basketball team than a game, Blizzard All-Stars.
