Counter-Strike is one of the most popular games in the world, and for me, one of the best games ever. It doesn't have a beautiful graphic if you compare with other games, but who cares? It's so fun when you play with your friends in a LAN. This game is awsome!

Counter-Strike is one of the only games that I find myself eventually returning to, no matter what other FPS games are out there.

Replayability holds up over the years with the simple concept of tossing players into two teams and giving them an objective:
(as terrorists)
- planting bombs and defending them until it detonates
- holding/defending hostages from the CT

(as Counter-Terrorists)
- preventing bombs being planted or defusing them
- rescuing hostages

Graphics aren't much to write home about these days, but it's all about the gameplay and weapon behavior. And, definitely, community. Nostalgia may be a large factors for most of us old timers who've been playing for almost two decades. I've made some great friends through this game, almost destroyed my former marriage from my CS addiction xD, and lost track of so much time while playing. (The hours it says I've played isn't even 1/4 of the time I've spent on this game, lol. Which I'm kind of glad it doesn't say how many months I've probably played on this)

Almost screw up my exams at high school (1999/2000), when I was doing my vocational training (2001-2003) and at university (2004-2009) due to playing way too much cs...

Great game, would risk my future again! 10/10

Simply THE best shooter that you can play, to forget the anger that built up inside of you after playing too much CS:GO.
It truely is a relief to play another shooter than CS:GO, without messing with your aim, movement, etc.
Just set everything up the way it is in CS:GO (sensitivity, key-binds, etc.) and escape from the austerity pressure to perform well in CS:GO. And RELAX theres nothing you can do wrong here. Even when there's a cheater, just don't give a f. I mean, there isn't even a stats-record. Like there's only a serversided stats-tracking if at all. So without specifically searching for your stats on a specific server that has some kind of player-stats on it, nobody will ever know how bad you are/were :)

So i buy this game to become good at counter strike but i don't good because 1.6 is hard so i buy source to become good at counter strike but source is hard so i buy global offensive to become good at counter strike but i become silver 1 and realise game is not hard... life is hard and friend once told me to kys (kappa your soul) and i think it is great idea! Any way if you good at counter strike game it is fun if not deinstall game because if you're bad at game you are bad. Overall great game but also bad. Yes thank for read!

Ah, this is where it all started from..
The mecca of online competitive scene..
I still remember bunking my extra classes, and play this game in a bunker of a gaming center, during my school days.
I didnt think, that it would take root inside of me, that would fruit up, some years later.

Come the post graduation years, and I found myself playing this again, this time.. on a competitive level and making sure I had fun, the entire time I spent, whistling away at this ..

Fond old memories..
Still growing strong..
Still making more and more, as we keep walking through the life..
