5. Starcraft Broodwar

This game will never die.

Now we are getting into the big winners. Starcraft Broodwar was the number one Esports game for years. It came out in 1998 and has been immensely popular ever since. The game is just like Warcraft only it takes place in outer space and features three playable races: the Terran, Protoss, and Zerg. 

There are still plenty of tournaments that feature this older gem and the prize money can get as high as $125,000. With Broodwar you normally don’t have to split the prize money with any team members either so that’s nice. This game has been showcased in multiple world championship tournament finals. Starcraft Broodwar has one of the biggest and most loyal fanbases. This game won’t disappear soon.
