Are you kidding? I stopped playing AoE3 like a month after i bought it way back when. SC2 has way high replay value due to competitive multiplayer and custom maps. I was also playing Starcraft ONE from 2000 all the way until 2010. Alot of people, apparently such as yourself, bought into the SC2 hype and only played for a while. I'm not nearly into Starcraft as much as I was before so I don;t play as often, but I still play time to time. It's a game I will continue to go back to.

And I played SC2 for about a month before I found it rather boring.

While I can speak for the others I actually I DID play StarCraft the original and it was good. Being able to have a bunch of buddies play over a network and only needing one legit key was PURE win. Fast forward to today...and SC2 was good for about 3 weeks. Then it got boring.

Did you really think they would allow people to play with one key, or install Spawn versions like they used to? Not in today's industry. So how did it get boring for you? Because you can't let your friends play off your paid copy, you have no more friends, gameplay or what? Like I said even before SC2 came out I was started to get tired of Starcraft itself after playing it for 10 years so I'm not playing it as much as I didnt on release. I still play it every once and a while, usually at least once a week, and probably will continue going back to it.

We should probably stop crapping in this PSA thread though,

I played SC1 and I played it a lot back in the late 90's. However I wouldn't consider it being the best RTS ever.
