"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason.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."

Need changes:
1. VAC Version Pro, cuz now this is demo version of VAC and lets the cheaters cheats as hell.
2, Server for Russians. They make too many troubles.
3. Anit-kid system. Too many of them.
4. 5 vs 5 Casual Games - too many players on one map.
5. Fix Deathmach's respawing, i dont want to spawn near enemy and waits for death or spawn near 3 enemies.
6. 128 Tickrate Servers.
7. Bans for smurfs.
And a few more things. Good game, i love ESL and DreamHacks, watching tournaments and play this game evryday.

Product received for free
Tried explaining to some 1,000+ player that I had a total of 4 hours clocked in but proceeded to call me a ♥♥♥ and ♥♥♥♥ like that. The community is ♥♥♥♥♥♥
Tried being sneeky turning corners slowly and all that ♥♥♥♥ and was told "move your ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥, ♥♥♥♥♥♥" so as soon I let go of shift I was instantly headshoted by a pistol on the other side of the map, and then was votekicked for being new to csgo.

Add something like a boot camp in the "play" menu for noobs v noobs

After playing for nearly 2000 hours, you'd expect I'd be pretty good at this game, but I'm actually bloody awful. A good percentage of the community is too toxic for you to even enjoy playing - and if you get toxic teammates then you've almost definitely lost the game and will probably derank to be surrounded by people who are even more toxic and even less competent.

So why recommend it? It's the best of a worst situation type thing, you see, every game the industry has dropped on us recently has been a down right disappointment so instead of dealing with those games just buy skins. Skins are literally the only reason to play this game :^)

Sometimes the game is fun but that's usually because some ruskis are shouting at eachother instead of shouting at you and you just sit there like "hue ♥♥♥♥ blyat idi nahui silly ruskis :))"
