What kind of alternate "games" are there in Starcraft 2? In the same way that WC3 spawned DOTA, what has SC2 spawned so far...?

Are you asking for a list of successful mods for Starcraft 2? because we're not really a good resource for that kind of information. – tzenes Oct 18 '10 at 0:49
Hmmm....fair point. I guess some of the things that have been tried. I was playing a game of Phantom last night, and just wondered what else there was. – Albort Oct 18 '10 at 2:37
while this might not be a good venue for that discussion, you can try in chat – tzenes Oct 18 '10 at 4:36
They are sorted by popularity already ingame, so I'm not sure what more you want from us – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Oct 18 '10 at 16:45

There are already almost all the custom maps that were available in previous Blizzard games, though usually a little less advanced and with a SC2 theme instead of a WC3 theme.

There are two or three DotA Versions, a lot of Tower Defense maps, Nexus Wars, Income Wars, some Racing game (, some First Person shooters, etc.

I don't think there is anything "new" compared to WC3, but SC2 is still quite young
