Starcraft is still easily one of my favorite RTS game series out there. I lost many many hours of my youth to it in LAN parties with friends and don't regret a moment of it!
Spec: Intel i7 6700k overclocked at 4.6 GHz, Asus Maximus VIII Hero motherboard, 32 GB Corsair Vengeance high speed DDR4 RAM, GTX 980, SSHD, Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS with center stick and extension, Saitek Pro Combat Rudder Pedals, Track IR 5, CH Throttle Quadrant, BenQ 2720T monitor.
I also lost many hours of my youth on this RTS, and that's an understatement. The online dimension to Starcraft kept me in my younger days coming back time and again for more. No two matches were ever exactly the same coupled with all the possibilities/challenges/tactics and that is was an RTS, made it a wonderful pastime, or so I thought. Having said all that, I do regreat all the other things I could've done in my youth and didn't because of this "*!#%" game was around! I only have myself to blame, for my parents did their best to persuade me to be more regimental as to when I played, but I didn't think anything of it. At the end of the day, it's all about discipline. That will set apart life's have and have nots more than any other factor IMHO.
Oh well...live and/let learn.

There are a lot worse things you can do in your youth than play starcraft. Volunteering for the Army or Marines are 2 that come to mind (speaking from experience).
