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.
[quote=RPS]so for me a typical round began like this: 1, 3, 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 1, 4, 6. Or something last that. That’s probably wrong actually. (Apparently I can’t consciously interrogate muscle memory for the right combo for Deagle, Colt, Flashbang, HE, ammo. Shit, and I wanted armour too!)[/quote] b13b43b82b83b84b6b7. Who needs muscle memory when you can remember all of the menus from all those years ago.

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 [b]very[/b] 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.
scoutzknivez on cs 1.6... those were the days oh and pcw
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.
I used to love the christmas maps on 1.6.
I miss 1.6, too bad most servers are just 24/7 dust2, DM or filled with bots :smith:
classic example, gameplay over graphics
Half-Life franchise <3

cs_estate and cs_747 best maps ever.
SURF MAPS! I enjoy the classic CS gameplay but surf and those puzzle maps are a lot of fun to play.
CS was my first real competitive FPS and holds a place in my heart.
de_dust best map of any game ever forever

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).
[QUOTE=Rusty100;29964581]de_dust best map of any game ever forever[/QUOTE] Although i agree, i believe the css dust 2 is superior to dust 1
I loved the KZ. Shit was fucking IMPOSSIBLE. But it felt oh so satisfying when you pulled it of.

I never liked de_dust.
Why is de_dust good?
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.

Was it the song on CS Italy?
Cs is undoubetedly good, it's just a case of the community severely lowering it.
I feel like I missed out with this. I guess I can never get into it because everyone already playing is too good.

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
