    For me CS was amazing, what it had and still has over other games is the expanded features from the community, yes some servers force you to download 100000 .wav's.. and it has a shit community. But can you name another game that has so many ways to play it ? In many ways it influenced TF2, some of the classic gamemodes have been ported over with huge success.

    so for me a typical round began like this: 1, 3, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 1, 4, 6. Or something last that. Thatís probably wrong actually. (Apparently I canít consciously interrogate muscle memory for the right combo for Deagle, Colt, Flashbang, HE, ammo. Shit, and I wanted armour too!)

    Who needs muscle memory when you can remember all of the menus from all those years ago.

    For obvious reasons there is no discussion possible about if CS is a good game. I mean it is 8 or 7 years old now? It has more players then MW2 and Counter Strike Source.

    I hate CS. I used to be fairly good at it, but I stopped playing for a few months. I came back and I've gotten very rusty at it and get headshotted at the beginning of every round. There are way too many hackers on CS for me to play it anymore, anyway. It was good back in the day but for me, it's obsolete now.

    Good ol' days. Back when I didn't have internet on my room and a shitty Pentium III, I used to build maps in Worldcraft (ye old Hammer), create waypoints, and duke it out with bots.

    It's the best twitch-shooter out there, but I get so much more satisfaction out of games that emphasize teamplay (probably because I'm better at supporting teammates than at twitch-shooting).

    It is the pinnacle of good map design.



    Plus to all those who make excuses that they get headshotted first everyround, I have one thing to say. CS is a game of patience and getting the drop on the other team (with a hefty helping of luck and spraying too however). Most people who use that excuse rush the other teams spawn without thinking.


    I love CS.

    Cs is undoubetedly good, it's just a case of the community severely lowering it.

    de_train or de_nuke are among my favorite multiplayer maps ever--I also love their source counterparts. I started playing 1.6 when I was 10, ended up going (lol, I know) semi-pro in cs:source by playing in esea-m and cevo-m. I was the biggest fucking nerd ever, but I had a passion for counter strike that I couldn't really explain

    Nostalgia so F'n hard, and that was just by taking a glimpse of all the images in the article alone.
    It's interesting looking at and comparing other people's experiences to my own, especially when it comes to the 1.0-1.6 era of Counter-Strike.

    So many hours spent playing this wonderful game, I really do miss it all.

    fy_iceworld will always have a small, fast-paced, place in my gaming heart.
    Grab the para machine gun and storm the left and just wait for all the quake sound effects.
    I actually remember now, that was back when I made my alias too.
    Being that young, I obviously murdered the spelling of my name, still keep it though haha



    de_rats, level was always so intense and it always made me look at my kitchen in different perspectives lol
    And that fucking sponge, I swear.

    I'm going to have to write my own article now,
    thank you Facepunch.

    cs has some of the most team oriented gameplay out there when you play 5v5 competitively

    no it doesn't, CS is one of the most singular-skill oriented games out there

    sure teamwork is part of the game but you can have the best aim in the world and carry anyone to victory

    yes I play competitively

    I doubt you do, because if opposite team plays as team, no matter how good your aim is, you won't win.
