A pretty insane article on Ars Technica on what goes behind playing Star Craft.

In StarCraft, your efficiency is described in "APM," or actions per minute. According to this video, you need to be over 300 APM to be competitive. That means in 60 seconds, you need to accomplish over 300 things. To get there you need to learn a level of situation awareness and split-second decision making most gamers will never be able to top.
