"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason.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

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

I like it because I'm incredibly bad at it and it is enjoyable during free time.
- Not for new players who do not adapt quickily, I got my ♥♥♥ handed to me when I tried it out for the first time but that's just me.
- Good graphics
- Optimizable
- Triggered
- Kids saying outdated your mom jokes that can be found during the age of neanderthals.
- Adults trash talking me as well.
- Memers (The good section of the community, but my word is biased.) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
- Not as toxic a community as my friends made it out to be but it is still toxic nonetheless.
- Most importantly, it's fun. Unless you are the kind that gets angry easily for no damned reason.
(This is not a roast post.)

(8.2/10)

I have played many games of competitive and one thing has gotten a little too out of hand...SMURFS. over the past few days and right just now me and my friends have gotten screwed out of our ranks because of smurfs. not just some random guy who tops the team, no, im talking about the top of the enemy having 50 kills while the second fragger had 15. I do enjoy the game but the smurfs are getting out of hand. In the last 5 games i have played, all of them have contained a smurf beyone reasonable doubt. Deathmatch, casual and all the other gametypes are fine, while those trying to climb the ranks in competitive get screwed out of it soley because of smurfs they play against. I do not reccomend this game to those who are very new until valve fixes this smurf problem. It is out of control, and deters me from playing the game to the point where i dont even want to play the damn game anymore. I hope valve finda a way to fix this problem for the good of the community.
