I've played this game for years, it soothes all your needs. You can both shoot your anger out of you and you can play calming game modes like surf and bhop and then you have the role play part which is jail break and you have the fun and social minigame and deathrun.. There's a lot more too! =)

If you thought the people you played with in CSGO were noobs, just wait until you try source.

Words do not describe how much I love this game.

Even though I was born when CS:S was already out, I was introduced to it when I was young at a friends house. I enjoyed watching those Flash Animations of the game, and watching just gameplay of it. Then 2014 came along. I finally had enough money to buy the game, and my first match was amazing. To me, almost every gun is useable and has one pro that makes it useful. Sadly though, the game is pretty dead if you're looking for a regular defusal map. Most servers that are very populated are either: surf, bhop, or deathmatch/FFA. I wish I was a bit older when CS:S first came out so I could've experienced what looked liked an amazing experience for so many people. But now, all I get to play is a game full of hackers, people who have played forever and refuse to by CS:GO, and little kids who bought CS:S for the textures for Garry's Mod.

Well CSS, What can I say, I love you. If it wasen't for CSS, I don't even know where I'd be in the gaming world today...Probably playing CoD or some nonsense like that! CSS is a game that you can spend hours on. HOURS. There's so many different game servers and mods to choose from! My personal favorites are DeathRun, GunGame DM, & Climb! Of course there's plenty of other ways to play the game as well! I've spent my fair share playing Hide & Seek, Jailbreak and even just Competitive! All around and fun game!

Counter-Strike has come a long way and to see this game really brings out how much it has come. I feel as this game is not just a time waster but a reason to still be on the Internet. But In 1999, I crawled out of Counter-Strike’s wretched ♥♥♥♥♥♥ to become the man I am today. And, now, I’m tasked with rating the game. How does one even rate his mother?

In sixth grade, I would wake up for school at 5:30 AM, but then I started getting up at 4:30 just to get a couple rounds in before class. Call it dedication or a sickening obsession, but I was hooked on CS (nevermind my neighbor who broke into my house to play while I slept!) It was more than a game. It was my social hub, my iTunes visualizer, and my brief entryway into game design (which didn’t go very far.) It is and remains a standout multiplayer shooter that paved the way for things to come with Call of Duty and Battlefield.

Being eight years since the excellent Source remake, Valve has decided it’s time to give the game another facelift. What started as a Source port for consoles became a more ambitious project that included PC. While there are no radical departures in Global Offensive, it is without a doubt a reboot. Valve has just hit the reset button on the series, once again. As drastic and premature of a maneuver it may be, there is no denying that Counter-Strike remains an addictive and rewarding competitive shooter like no other.
