-RUSHING PRIVATE RYAN-

We set out in the morning, warily checking windows, corners, anywhere the Germans could spring a trap or an ambush.

Johannson was in the lead, Garand at the ready and bayonet fixed improperly. Rook was shadowing him, double checking each spot that Johannson had checked before. I was in the middle with Peters, helping him carry the M2 Browning. And Stewart was in the rear, covering our backs with his Thompson at the ready.

It was quiet. Too quiet.

The bridge we had set out to capture was undefended, and we quickly set up a defensive position in case a German patrol stumbled upon us.

The sound started as a low rumble. We looked around, at each other, confused as to why the ground was shaking. It got louder, and we could soon hear the sound of people yelling. We readied our weapons, getting ready for the enemy to throw a grenade or fire a Panzerschreck.

But nothing could prepare us for what happened next.

A giant tide of German soldiers, all carrying trench shovels and primed Steilhandgranates in their hands, came around the corner, rushing at us screaming at the top of their lungs.

We opened fire, but there were too many and we were quickly overrun.

Stewart was the first to go, having gotten overzealous with his Thompson. He had managed to push the wave of Germans back, when they surrounded him and began pummeling him to death with their shovels.

One of them, holding a grenade, charged Rook and Johannson from behind. They never saw it coming.

By now, it was only me and Peters, him firing his MG wildly at the advancing tide while I threw frag grenade after frag grenade. And then Peters started to run out of ammo.

Quickly, I rushed up to his position with a new box of ammunition, but by that time they were almost upon him. Peters quickly pulled out his M1911 and managed to squeeze off a few shots, but it wasn't long before he too was buried under the mass of grey and black.

I was cornered, back against a locked door while I blasted soldier after soldier back with my Sniper rifle. But it was no use. They descended upon me, swinging shovels indiscriminately at my already bruised and battered body. They were relentless, beating me until at last, I succumbed to the darkness.

As my vision blurred, they stopped screaming long enough for one of them to say something to me.

Something that would shock me to the core.

He said:

"lol noob get rushed fggt"

I tried Day of Defeat: Source again recently and was expecting it to be dead. After all, the game is almost a decade old now. However, I was still able to find several populated servers at all hours of the day or night. Old age hasn’t killed DOD:S.

If anything age has worked in DOD:S’s favor. For example, it attracts an older and more mature crowd. I haven’t had to put up with as much drama or slurs from annoying prepubescent teammates as I do in more modern multiplayer shooters.

Another example of age helping the DOD:S experience is how “old school” it feels. Despite the WW2 setting, DOD:S plays more like an arena shooter from the 1990s than today’s super serious military shooters. Forget aiming down iron sights. Secondary fire for most weapons throws solid punch instead. Expect to spend a lot of time zipping about, shooting dudes with crosshairs, punching them for good measure, and laughing at the exaggerated ragdoll physics.

Day of Defeat: Source is not a masterpiece but it’s worth a look if you have a hankering for a shooter that isn’t too serious.

Withouth steam family sharing I couldn't bully beginners and old people with my exceptional skill anymore. I get banned at least once a day for suspected cheating and need a lot of accounts to play on my favourite servers.

But I love this game because it's full of wasted people, some of them lisp, others just had a tough, depressing life and this game is their last chance of becoming a respected person, such as a major in a realism unit (haha). Then there are the weed-smoking younger people, who can learn everything about having a "great" adulthood from the grandpas in the game - perfect knowledge transfer. Then there are the arrogant pros, who will tell you how stupid you are, just because they are better than you. And they will even tell you how badly you play after you have achieved their skill. Then there is this one drunk individual who will join servers randomly and just say unidentifiable stuff all the time. Then there are some neonazis, a lot of nonworkers and drinkers. Then there are people who pretend to be a girl for whatever reason.

If you find one of the few normal players, who is not 40 years old and still plays this game, you are lucky and deserve a cookie!

And then there's me - an outstanding player who is just bored so he knocks down some idiots. After having played this game for 6 years and more than 5'000 hours it's just not demanding anymore. Withouth the MP40/Thompson ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ it would be the perfect game! But they always make me throw things against my screen if they give me a headshot from 100 feet. Oh, I'm not joking here btw!

To say it in the words of my favourite victim, who is an older german almost tourette idiot: "Unter den Blinden ist auch der Einäugige König." But I still have both of my eyes, he just doesn't know that.

This game is awesome (just look at my playing hours^^) and this is why:
+ Source engine
+ Fast gameplay
+ Original voices
+ Soundscapes (provide realistic ambient)
+ Mapping possible (Hammer editor)
+ Community content (literally every cosmetic customization you want to have)
+ Team Play needed
+ VAC secure works great
+ Balanced weapons/solider classes
+ Different game modes

Since there are positive aspects, there have to be negative ones, right?
- Many offical maps are not really balanced
- Often bad team play, because rampageing is possible
- Just three game modes (domination, demolition, two-way demolition)
- Spraying is accurate (Tommy and MP40)

But still 9/10 because this game is a gem under all FPS games! Since Call of Duty United Offensive one of the best games...
