You can't talk about competitive StarCraft: Brood War without two names coming up: Jaedong the Tyrant and Flash, aka The God of StarCraft.
Today Razer launched Team Razer: Great Games, a video series that aims to be the definitive eSports documentary, and no definitive eSports documentary would be complete without the story of how Lee "Jaedong" Jae Dong met Lee "Flash" Young Ho. The pair of South Korean pro-gamers were both at the top of their game in StarCraft: Brood War, Jaedong with his fiery Zerg and Flash with his methodical, almost mechanical Terrans.
Part two of the episode focuses on Song "HerO" Hyeon Deok, up-and-coming Protoss player, completing the circle of StarCraft races.
And if StarCraft's not your thing, the other two planned episodes of Great Games will cover DOTA 2 and League of Legends. The rest of the games just aren't great, I guess.
