Still fun after all these years. This is also the most moddable FPS on the market, and can be played even on very slow machines. Probably the best FPS of all time. Don't forget to download bots, though! I reccomend ZBot, which is very easy to use, and has an in-game UI that is brought up by pressing 'H'.

100,000,000,000 Times better than csgo, cancer is almost non existant in this game, everyone is friendly, if ESEA, ESL or CEVO still had a pug / scrim service for this I would uninstall cancer strike : p90 offensive in a ♥♥♥♥ing heartbeat and play some proper counter strike!

Once, there was a time, when we read live matches at IRC, when we watched ineye demos, when we played tl20 and 15, when we where called "killerplayer", when we wrote norecoil scripts, when we turned of graphic details to have a better view through smoke grens, when we could see bomb defuses through the ceiling at de_nuke.
That was a great time, when I was young and beautiful and that was Counterstrike at it's best.

For half of the time that I've spent engaged, online, connected to servers, Steam wasnt keeping track of the hours [during/in those years].

This isn't a game. It's a struggle.
[for me] The struggle continues.

This is the game that started it all. Probably one of the biggest breakthroughs in E-Sports history. Surely difficult to compare to all the new features availble in CSGO, but this gem didn't need fancy skin schemes to rise to the top. Definetly recommend at least owning this game if you're not going to play it.

Counter Strike is the best shooting game, i've ever played. The 'real cs', where you plant bombs etc. is not 10/10 gaming, but look at all those great mods! The greatest thing in cs is playing mod servers, and you do not need to download them from your web, you just simply double click that server, and that's it! At first I recommend to play normal cs, if it gets boring try other servers. Oh and original maps aren't that great, except de_dust2. You must try cs even if you think it has low graphics. Gameplay is much more important than graphics, remember that!

Such a highly reccomended game for those who want to get it, playing this game in 2016 reminds me of the old style games i used to play on the playstation 2.

I recently came back to play this game due to the fact Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is simply a great game and wanting to seen the origin.

10/10

In this game you can play many many modes and its the most positive thing. Its not only about shooting or about playing tactic games. You can just "chillout" on some kinds of servers and thats what I always loved in CS 1.6.

Gameplay
Counter-Strike is a round based game where you play as counter terrorist or play as terrorist. As a counter terrorist, your task is to prevent the terrorist from planting a bomb and detonate it or rescue a captured hostages and lead them to the hostage rescue zone, while the terrorist team has to do the opposite. Weapons has hard recoil so you can't just spray and pray, short burst fire can save you in critical situation. Before the round begins, you can and need to buy weapons and equipments with money, you get money by winning the round or killing the enemy team. This type of gameplay encourages team work.

Counter-Strike is a good game. I recommend this game.
