CS barely invented the "generic FPS," because CS has way too much of a tactical focus compared to the generic FPS out today. Games like Halo, CoD, and, say, Warhawk really don't have as much strategy as Counter-Strike does.
see: trying to copy and failing
oh you're one of those people who hate on halo and CoD for no reason
i don't need to argue anymore
Wow, way to stereotype. Just check my Steam profile, I've played my fair share of time on MW2, Black Ops, and even some MW3. About 140 hours a piece, save for MW3, which I can't stomach and therefore only have about 20 or 30 hours on. Likewise 4 or 5 years ago I was crazy for Halo: CE on the PC. Had some good times playing. Both games are fun, but they're not as good as games like CS, Red Orchestra, early Battlefield, and Unreal.
which is why I said "and failing"
Just because CS is a massively popular FPS doesn't mean it is THE source of generic FPS games. That's like saying, because West Side Story was an incredibly popular musical of the 1950s, every musical based on New York City attempted to replicate West Side Story, and, if they couldn't, they "were failing" to do so.
You can have the absolutely best plot in the world but still have generic gameplay. Some of the best games around don't even have a plot, it just is what it is (like TF2 or CS).
sure is topic in here
Thread about CS
Current topic is plots
(albeit it taking place in the 90s/early 2000s era, whereas CSGO appears to be modern day)
And you're right about TF2 from the first, since its release its backstory has greatly expanded (though not really to the point of a real plot)
Got a beta key yesterday from Steam Translations, it looks great but it's unplayable for me because I get 8 FPS outside and 20 FPS inside buildings, and no I don't have a shit computer.
I hope Valve might one day implement a zombie mode in the counter-strike series, but I doubt it. Anyhow I look forward to this game and hopefully back to doing a couple of more maps.
How much more detail is there in the models and maps?
Made two 720p videos, will upload soon.
He's either dead or alive. He's one or the other. Your argument is either falling apart, or you were tired. If you weren't tired, why would you suggest it? If you were tired, you claim your argument wasn't falling apart. It still is.
I got a fake email that said someone sent me a copy of CS:GO beta. I almost clicked on it because it said the email came from steampowered.com, but then I realized the link was a malware.
On-topic from Meatpuppets charade, What weapons from css are exactly missing and what ones were added? And any word from steam on Xbox Live yet? Two more things, was V.I.P confirmed and and more hints on Zombie Mode? Thanks.
I have a "meh" video about the GO4CSS mod. Some plays of the maps.
