I agree. I've been playing CS for about nearly 4 years. The last year and a bit I play online at home, and I never tire of it.

Yeah the graphics are getting on a bit, but I've seen brand-new games come out that dont look much better.

The great thing about it being quite old is, it still runs like a dream with AA and aniso turned on.

okay, I live in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia (CITY, STATE, COUNTRY for all those idiots out there). within 100 miles, theres gotta be at least 50 internet cafe's with roughly 40-80 computers in each one. every screen in almost ALL of them is counter-strike.

my favourite place is "the bunker". www.thebunker.com.au and they have cs competitions there, and the winner of 1st division won $5000. thats a lot a nuts. the same goes for most of the country (plays cs).

AND CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME A URL FOR A BLOOD.....THING!?!!?!

COUNTER-STRIKE: CONDITION ZERO "IS" coming out, and yes it has been delayed, but hey, what hasn't? it was announced pretty early so everyones been expecting it.

Trust me. if you go to an internet cafe and experience cs like most of the people here, you'll be addicted.
We know graphics don't make a game. CStrike has become the internet joke of the decade for the fact it attracts some of the most insanely unintelligent people we have ever met in any online game. There is also the cheaters and 10 year old timmy talking trash to you because you shot him or when they ban you for being better than the server host or a thousand other sh-tty reasons. Get a new life. Get a new game, but PLEASE don't downplay us because we don't like CS, a.k.a. bane of the online games.

you have a point with all the 10 year olds playing. but unless your brain can't take the stress of a little kid calling you a **** head, you probably have emotional problems. but why would you drift away from such a good game just cause your being teased by some 10 year old retarded kid with an iq smaller than a monkey? onother reason why cs is so good is because its an ONLINE game. its INTERACTING. thats one of the best parts about the game!

i mean, you can look around and see all your mates with m4a1's and desert eagles in their hands. (its great fun when you have a microphone, and when you talk, the mouth of your character moves. ) i mean, how many games can you think of that you can run in with ak's, colts and mp5's and have an all out war with actual people?

I can handle the taunts, and being called a wall-hacker when I aint. But what really annoys me is the amount of cheaters..

Playing today and found a t's who was completely invisible. 1st time in 4 years I've seen that. Totally ruins it for everyone.

Is that a rhetorical question, or do you honestly want an answer?

If you do want an answer, I'll slap you.

It's not the fact that I can't take the flaming. I can. I just don't need to see it constantly in a game that should've died 3 years ago. You dont' see it in EQ or BF 1942 or numerious other ONLINE games. What makes this game so special?

many people do not agree that it is a good game. therein lies the argument.

are you sure of that? i haven't noticed that. i really, really doubt that it's lip synched even if the mouthes move.

in most pubs, i find that the majority of players are stupid. turn on friendly fire and you always have some asshat shooting his own team and killing them for no reason. or you have the people who step in front of you, you accidently kill them, and they kill you later.

the endless, endless camping, lots of good players calling everyone a noob, noobs calling other players noobs, teams not fullfilling their objective, etc.

can you find good servers? yes. but you can find good servers for other games too. i think the CS community as a whole is made up of whiners. and then of course there is the cheating. it's dwindled a little bit from last year or years before, but it's still there. and then there's so many servers where people accuse you(more specifically me) of cheating. admins kick me, ban me, or i get vote kicked. i've gotten vote kicked off my own server more times than i can count!

and even on some of the "good servers" i find that the attitude of the regulars is hostile to newcomers. once i was in this clan server and my team was annihilated, it was like 6 vs 1 on de_dust. the bomb was at the bottom of the bridge area, on the CT side. i was on the T side. i know the CTs are camping the bomb(i can see them under the bridge). so i think it's pretty ridiculous to try and get the bomb under those conditions, so i camp out 5 of the guys. i go around to the CT side and sneak up on the last CT and kill him(right before i do, i get admin_slapped). and after the round is over the CTs immediately call me gay, and even the Ts say "we didn't deserve to win." WTF? such a receptive community.

Exactly. Why should I have to be kicked or banned because I happen to be better than anyone else on that server AND have to put up with being called "cheater", "n00b", and a host of other names which I don't want to say here? Am I anti-CS? Not at all. Am I anti-CS community as a whole? 100% yes.

Obviously some of you haven't played on servers where there are admins 24/7 Not to mention servers that are respected and take pride in having no cheaters.

as noted in the last paragraph of my previous post, many of the "good" servers seem to have elitist regulars and admins.

i'm pretty sure i wouldn't have been admin_slapped or disparaged by other players if i was a regular there. so just having admins there 24/7 doesn't make for a warm receptive atmosphere, which is one of the things i consider conducive for a good community. also, lots of people are accused of hacking, just because they have good aim or "sound hack." one of my friends playing in the same server as me actually accused me of using an aimbot while we were no scope scouting, because i was perfectly tracking and hitting people even as they went behind boxes(it was scoutmap and no scoping was being enforced). i find that highly offensive as ive never cheated using an exterior 3rd party program ever in CS.

I usually play on the laggy uk2.net servers. They have horrible lag (but its payable) but there are quite frequently admins on. When their isn't you can contact them via IRC anyway. I've made requests to ban a few ppl in the last 6 months and they have been banned.

I think the reason theres soo much whining and bitching, is because this game is soo widly played. Ppl who generally aren't into computer game comunities can just get half-life dirt cheap, download cs, and start playing. You dont need a powerful machine to play it on either. Heck you can even play with software rendering! Alot of these ppl have no idea of netiquette.

Also theres the whole frustration thing, about not just respawning back immediately.. so they're stuck there able to do nowt but bitch and convince others you were killed unfairly..

This is also one of CS's great fun parts. You just know when you HS your m8 almost at the beginning, he's gonna be thumping the desk and calling you every name under the sun!

But yeah, newbies who dont try to learn what to do, constant whiners, constant campers, and cheaters do ruin it. Without them its great fun!

Some of the best fun is to be had on a lan where you know everyone and know they are playing fairly. Working in a games company has its advatanges. 20 player lan matches at lunch?! Nice

Well first of all to answer "why it's so popular"

Because:

A: It's FREE.

B: It runs even on the most ancient systems.

C: Doesnt require to have an expensive connection to play.

D: Mindless shooter, there are 0 tactics or whatsoever in there.

Hope that answers your Q's

Anyway I still play it in some lan parties usualy very late when you're brain cant handle anything else.
