You can practice starcraft for two years and still haven’t mastered the basics
You can practice red alert for two decays and be as good as when you begin playing

When you can beat two computers in warcraft, you can start winning in multi-player
When you can beat seven computers in starcraft, you still can't win against humans
When you beat a computer for the eight millionth times you realize you never played humans

Play warcraft for two hours and you can loose to the same strategy 8 times in a row, suffering a crushing defeat
Play starcraft for two hours and you can loose to 16 different strategies 8 times in a rows, suffering a crushing defeat
Play red alert for two years and you loose to the exact same thing forever, suffering a crushing defeat

Play starcraft and you will realize, 3 years later, a Zerg exterminator used to be good with the zerg
Play red alert and you only need to practice on nation to learn every single nations.

Learn a few strategies from warcraft and you can start winning
Master fifty strategies from starcraft and you still can't start winning
Learn a few strategies from red alert and they’re all useless. Just stick to the one everyone uses--forever

A noob's day in warcraft: You cornered your enemy but they still managed to get out in one piece

Warcraft plays you around
You play Starcraft
Westwood plays you and red alert around

In warcraft you say the word imbalance and everyone start debating on race, hero and units
In starcraft you say the word imbalance and everyone disagree in general
In red alert you say the word imbalance and you’re in the wrong discussion—every nation is the same.

Someone says Warcraft is crap and you will get pissed and start fighting
Someone says Starcraft is crap and you will cast a sideward glance and ignore them
Someone says red alert is crap and you will get pissed but still agree

Play warcraft long enough and you'll find out that it's a great game.
