30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 17

Day 17 - Favorite Antagonist

Orgrim Doomhammer & All the Other Orcs, Warcraft Orcs & Humans

Long before Blizzard shit up the incredible lore and game play that was the Warcraft Series, Warcraft Orcs & Humans revolutionized video gaming with its simple point and click real-time strategy immersion. 

Thousands became addicted, dropped out of college, lost all their worldly possessions and squatted at friends houses for decades just to play the games that would follow - and it all started with a simple premise:

The Orcs were invading, and the humans had to do something about it!  They were lead by Orgrim Doomhammer, and that's about all there is to it.  If it weren't for the little act of cross-dimension invasion coupled with mass genocide, who knows where gaming would be today.
