No they haven't. They copy plot devices and bad executions 1:1 from other games (or their own games, re: Kerrigan vs. Arthas), they have terrible presentation with their graphics and audio, and the elements within their stories are just as flat and gimmicky as their gameplay often is. Blizzard has never been good at writing, they simply used to be good at presenting poor and generic writing. They now lack those skills.

When amateurs can spend less time on a cinematic and get the same visual fidelity, and the audio and writing behind Blizzard cinematics is garbage, the statement you made is incredibly nonsensical. If anything brings pause to the intern-net, it should be how terrible they are as a company. The fact that casuals dive dick-first into their wallets for casual games doesn't make the games or their hype machines any higher quality. Have you no standards?
