I've always wanted to play, but I've waitied so long not sure which one I should start with. I'm all new to this, but not sure if I want to start at the very begining. But then I don't want to miss any history thats important. What should I do?
Well, Warcraft is different than World of Warcraft, the story all ties together (Deathwing the dragon from Cataclysm is from Warcraft 2 I think) and it is a very deep story. If the story is paramount to you then you gotta go all way to the first game and start with that. I would say though that Warcraft 3 will be enough to bring you up to speed. Finishing that you can transition to World of Warcraft, here the story is being written as you play. Being a MMO means that WoW has a HUGE amount of content that will keep you busy for years. Hope this helps you out. Good Luck and Long Live the Horde! Just remembered!!! Go to Wowpedia.com will fill you in on all the story!
