Strap yourselves in, readers. For it's Blizzard's "extended" 20th anniversary, and the studio has come bearing gifts. Namely, a shockingly in-depth retrospective video. Grab a tasty beverage, pop that popcorn, and give it a watch.

Starting way back in the Silicon & Synapse days, quite a bit of insight into what would eventually become one of the industry's most respected companies is shared. Whether you simply love a good start-up tale or want to know more about Blizzard's backstory, it's absolutely worth the viewing time.

I've also come to the odd realization that I could -- and happily would -- listen to Mike Morhaime speak all day long.
