hi all
first i must say thank you all who helped me so i can keep my son away from nasty stuff the devil puts on this earth
as grateful as i am i am here to tell you all to ban team fortress 2 (abbreviated as TF2) for the following reasons
i discovered about it this weekend when my 15 year old son charlie brought home his friend and they were playing on his friend's laptop a game where it's nothing but killing, bad words, god bashing, anti-american propaganda, and worst of all HOMOSEXUALITY!! they all are posed to look threatening (i guess that's what boys like these days)
there is also blantent homosexuality (when the doctor heals his patients they all say things like "i love this doctor" or "get behind me doctor!")
they made a character that looks like a soldier and he talks about god's world being his ("this is my world, you are not welcome in my world!") when i heard this i was MORBIDLY SHOCKED and appalled and ashamed of my son and he knew it
i was wondering why my son was getting into fights and after i saw this i banned him from ever seeing his friends
if you see your child playing this, tell them to uninstall it and watch him do it!!!
hope this helps parents out so your child doesn't stray far from god!

Good ole Team Fortress 2. The Official Hat Simulator. Who woulda thunk that skill level was based upon the fanciness and type of material floating around one's hat (*cough cough* it doesn't. Overall this is a great game, I've spent many a hour w+m1ing the crap out of people, attempting to backstab someone only to completely miss and be crocketed, and running around smacking metal objects and opponents alike with a wrench. Ignore and/or laugh at the people who say hats matter, they don't. My only (minor) complaint with TF2 right now is that we haven't had any new weapons released in quite awhile, get to work on that Valve!

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR MAGGOT?!?! DO I NEED TO MAKE MYSELF CLEARER?! OK THEN. DOWNLOAD THE OFFICIAL HAT SIMULATOR.....RIGHT. FRICKIN.... NOW!!!! DISMISSED!!!!

The vicious cycle of Tf2:

Install game
Play the tutorial
Yeah this game seems straighforward enough
Join your first server
It's probably payload
It's probably Goldrush
10 minutes to decide which team to join
10 minutes to decide what class to pick
The game ends
You were too slow
Alright lets try this again
Join another server
Its King of the hill
Its Sawmill
Choose random team because you learnt your mistake
Choose Scout because you learnt your mistake
This class is pretty cool
Try play for the objective
Run into a saw and die
What just killed me?
Go back to the capture point
Get killed by a saw while capping
Wtf is this
Choose soldier
See someone rocket jumping
Thats pretty cool
Try to rocket jump
Blow yourself up
This class sucks
Pick spy
Try capture the point while invis
Why isnt is capturing?
Come out of invis
See a pyro coming right for you
Run into a saw and die
Try again
See an engineer
Follow him for an easy backstab
Get killed by his sentry because you don't know how to disguise yet
Thats bull
Pick medic
I will help out my team now
Latch onto a teammate and don't heal anyone else
Get an Uber
Get backstabbed before you can use it
This class sucks
Pick demo
Place stickies on the point
What does rightclick do?
You blow yourself up
Pick pyro
Get some kills
Find the backburner
Get alot of kills
Find the ghastly gibus
Equip is so you look like a l33t b1g pr0
Try capture the point again
You're so close
x2>
A pyro airblasts you into a saw and you die
Game ends
You lose.
Return to the main menu
Exit the game
Go to bed.

--------

Rinse and repeat

I have played this game for an entire year; time for my account on it.

I have logged 2,407 hours at the time of writing this review.

The fact that this game is pushing a decade old, and is still the 3rd or 4th most played game on Steam should hint to you something; This game is good, and at the price of absolutely free, why the ♥♥♥♥ have you not downloaded it yet?

This game has a special place in my heart; there's not one game that has let me know people from all sorts of walks of life, and get to play with, or against them, or end up being Sandvich-sharing, congaing friends in the end; a game that can hold your interest for 2,407 total hours, and people's overall interest for 9 years, is obviously a game you need to try.

Now, to the core value of the game; this is easily the most balanced shooter out there; this game is "Pay2Pimp", otherwise known as pay for a crapton of virtual hats that give you no actual advantage in-game except making you look more suavy. Everything in this game can be earned by just playing the game, and there's nothing in this game that exclusively a P2P user can get over a F2P user that actually gives them an advantage in-game, it's truly F2P, and doesn't require you to buy stuff to get ahead in the game, unless you want to really get involved in TF2's dynamic trading.

Team Fortress 2 has more gamemodes than any shooter I have ever seen before; and I CHALLENGE you to find a game with more gamemodes and variety than TF2. Along with the core implemented gamemodes in TF2, there are a ton of mods, or other gamemodes made by the community if you get tired of Capture Points, Payload, King of the Hill, Capture the Flag, Attack/Defend, Mannpower, Territory Control, Medieval Mode, PASS Time, Robot Destruction, Mann vs Machine, Player Destruction, Payload Race, Arena Mode, Competitive Modes, Highlander Modes, and Special Delivery, along with 86 offical maps to go along with these core modes, along with more maps from the community workshop being added into the game over time; you'll never have something you haven't done in TF2.

Now, off the topic of TF2 and it's overall core gameplay; people keep saying they don't want to try TF2, saying it's for little kiddies, or the hackers make this game ruined; VAC now detects LAMEbox Premium; the hack that was said to be "un-VAC-able" this game can please any demographic, to people who want a fun game to pick up once, and never put down, to people who just love to trade and upgrade the value of their inventories with the game's dynamic economy, or even the competitive demographic, as Valve is testing Matchmaking Beta for TF2.

This game is free; there's no risk to trying it. You have nothing to lose, and so ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ much to gain, after playing it for a little; I wish everyone could see the magic behind this game.

So I spent most of my hours in idle servers and trading servers , being a Hoovy sitting in a corner for hours while watching the tryhards attempt to kill each other.

I should have allocated some time to learn how to rocket jump.

You don't get a real appreciation for the game until you play competitive medic. Not this Match Making nonsense, that full on ♥♥♥♥ on your chest bombed by the roamer and ♥♥♥♥♥ by a mid air rocket. You don't get a real appreciation for the game until you play competitive sniper. Not this pub ♥♥♥♥, that full on ambassador headshot accross the map only to be tickled in the stomach by the scout that your team didn't see so you cry yourself to sleep for being relied on and not dropping the med, that veitnam flashback ♥♥♥♥. You don't get a real appreciation for the game until you play competitive Demo. Not that sticky spamming tard on pubs, I'm talking about that guy that has to stick with the combo so that your 150 health anal explorer of a medic doesnt die. Yeah... that's the sort of ♥♥♥♥ im talking about.

Probably one of the best games I have ever played. It has a great community (aside from the occasional squeaker), incredible gameplay, beautiful graphics, and a weapon system that is diverse, but rather than one weapon being particularly "better" than another, they are more adaptibe to different play styles, something that is not very popular in games these days. Although there are players who have been playing exponentially longer than me, I usually feel like I can get a decent number of points without having to intensely practice. Overall, Team Fortress 2 is just an incredible game, and I couldn't reccomend it more.

This is probably the only game I will ever need. It's the game that got me into PC gaming and it's the game that has the best community out of the biggest games. Mainly because it's not a toxic community. Just like CS there is so much to do in them because of all the left in glitches and wierd game mechanics. It's also free wich makes it easy to play with friends wich is one of the best things.
Thanks for bringing me this game!

Even though some of the reviews I read is about the community being 'bad', thinking about it, I hardly ever see a 'decent' community for a game, everyone has their pros and cons, it can't be flawless. I agree that it's kind of turning into a CS:GO clone, you can now pick up weapons when they're dropped after someone dies, there's skins of stock weapons, I really miss Valve releasing new Festive skins and I do not like the idea of a Festivizer, and there are no new crates with new Strange weapons, just more cases with more skins and cosmetics and the nerf on some weapons are really unnecessary, it's TF2, not CS:GO, trying to completely balance the weapons in this game is impossible. Overall, it's my favorite game of all time and it will stay that way. Not interested in Overwatch at all.

I love Team Fortress 2, i really do, but im sad to see that the updates are becoming less unique and turning TF2 into a wannabe CS:GO hat simulator. Every update i supported but now that i have played the game for so long, it just lost its touch of being very unique in a way. Don't let this review keep you from playing the game, but honestly, the newer updates drove me farther and farther away TF2, now every update is about weapon skins and little campaign coins that mean nothing to you, I wish i could say TF2 never gets old, but after a long time of playing, trust me, it does get old seeing the same thing week after week. See you later TF2, you were a good game to me for so long, but now im going to sell everything and go.

EDIT 5/18/16: Mayflower update only came with a case, this is what i mean by "getting less unique"

This game has brought joy to me throughout the years. And maybe some extreme rage as well.

This is one of the few games I just can't help but come back to, over and over again. The value of teamwork in this game can be beneficial for hundreds of other games to.
With constant updates, gamemodes, buffs and nerfs, and mostly cosmetic items (And the occasional new weapon that isn't a reskin every fifth major update), the possibilities are endless, as well as the hours you regretfully put into this game.

Learn the different types of players throughout the game, like Free to Play's who frequently play as Pyro and run towards you Flame Thrower blazing, the class mains who ♥♥♥♥♥ about other teammates not doing their job correctly, the friendly players who give you a Sandvich one moment, then unload their Minigun into your back the next, the random who accuses players of hacking but is just terrible, the players who actually do hack and are VAC banned within 30 minutes, and so much more!

There are so many things to this game to like, almost anyone could find something to enjoy.
