"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason. Nothing beats the tension."

About This Game

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 14 years ago.

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS' award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac."

Don't play this game.

Don't buy this game.

The community is toxic, and it truly deserves to die, and Valve partly is to blame.

So, remember back when, back when there were the "cool kids"? Well, the idiots moved to CS:GO, and they devote hours to play this game, that actually really, isn't that fun. If you want gun physics, there are a few other games that replicate that. Games, especially on-line multiplayer shooter games, should be about the community, I mean, no one only likes fighting bots, right? But when the community is filled with hate, why play? Why support Valve in this endeavor? I played one game, and I didn't get but two kills, and by the third round, I was called names, voted to be kicked, and honestly, I didn't have fun. That's why we all play games, to enjoy them right? And another game, I got a few kills that were pretty lucky, and again, I was called names, like "cheater" and accused of hacking, and voted to be kicked? Really?

There are some games, like LoL, that actually promote good sportsmanship, like a welcoming and accepting community. Whether the players actaully do that, is their own personal choice, but the devs put that in there because they understand a bit about "nerd rage/hate" and tried to compensate that. Why couldn't Valve do that? Prob because they treat this a cash-cow and hope the "communtiy" developes further content whilst they sit on their Valve-rears and rake in the commission. In short, they prob don't give a hoot. "Vote with your feet people", let this game die.

Cheers RITO btw.

This is a game for six year olds, and losers that nerd-rage/hate.

Go TF2.

Go Vermintide.

If you're looking for a positive review, then you're in the wrong place, HOWEVER, if you're here for a tremendous chicken Stir Fry recipe, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER!

- 325 calories / serving
- Healthy

INGREDIENTS:

- 1 orange, zested and juiced
- 2tbsp soy sauce
- 2tbsp sesame oil
- 250g (8oz) tender stem broccoli
- 5cm (2in) piece root ginger
- 1tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 garlic clove, finely sliced
- 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
- 150g Straight To Wok Noodles

METHOD

Step 1 - Mix together the orange zest and juice, soy sauce and sesame oil and set aside.

Step 2 - Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain well and set aside.

Step 3 - Finely shred the ginger. Then heat a large frying pan or wok, add the sunflower oil, heat it until sizzling, and fry the ginger till it's crisp.

Step 4 - When it's done, remove with a slotted spoon. Add the chicken and garlic, and stir-fry until just browned. Remove the meat using a slotted spoon and set aside.

At least they're still adding skins, right?
Who needs bug fixes and general improvements to the game when you can buy new skins?

Before I started playing CSGO I was depressed and not motivated to do anything and I hated my job and didn't know what to do in my life.

But this game has totally changed my mind and opened a new chapter to my life. Finally I found something that I am good and helps me to reduce stress.

However, this have become an addiction and I can not STOP playing this game 24/7 and even got FIRED by my boss for being late and tired at work. But who CARES that job sucks anyways.

But now I have become a potatoe and jobless and still opening cases to get a knife and hoping to get a PAYDAY $$$ :)

The most toxic gaming community you could ever come across. Full of rage hacking kids who are toxic as hell and need a leather belt whipped on their bare ♥♥♥ more than a few times. Spend hours aim practising and smoke maps etc to bust your ♥♥♥ out of gold nova to finally make it to MG. Turns out anyone and everyone who is in MG and plays like a god is apparently an smfc smurf, and "clearly not a hacker" The amount of smfc there is in Australia is outstanding, but yet still manage to come up with a ♥♥♥♥ team like the renegades.
Prime is ♥♥♥♥ing ridiculous, you have more luck queueing non prime to get legit players.
Incredibly hard being a girl gamer, use your mic and you're going to get roasted by 12ies who have mummy issues and most probably virgins and also that you have a voice changer because clearly females never leave the kitchen and wouldnt be half decent at "a man's game". Don't use your mic to avoid said situation and get accused of being broke and not being able to afford a mic.
After nearly a year of playing this and watching the game turn to ♥♥♥♥ as all they care about is adding new skins every ♥♥♥♥ing month and not giving two ♥♥♥♥♥ about their anti hack, I shudder to think where it'll be in a few months, and ive only been playing a year -.-
GGWP Gaben you freaking tool.
