Anyone remember good old cs_mansion? Back in Dubai when It was the best shit everyone would play at game cafes.
Counter strike will always be fun as long as it has zombie mod.
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 [img]http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/7865/csmapderats224921123797.jpg[/img] de_rats, level was always so intense and it always made me look at my kitchen in different perspectives lol [i]And that fucking sponge, I [b]swear[/b].[/i] I'm going to have to write my own article now, thank you Facepunch.

anyone remember the first beta's of CS? those were so swag
Everyone hated all my favorite maps :(
Me and my brother used to play each other on a LAN server, like a mini LAN party. Good times.

But you HAVE TO HAVE strats that work when you play at that level against good, cohesive teams. you can definitely have very talented players that play as individuals and "pug it up" without strategies but those pug teams will always get dominated by good teams that work together. the last team that I was on would never pick up a kid that was incredibly talented but wouldn't follow directions or work with other people because that's poison for a team that's trying to play at a high level competitively also, I was on a team with ZoFu (cal-i with 50 cal and several other teams) and nukeM (also a cal-i veteran) and even though they were tremendous individual players they would have been cut/benched had they been unable to work with the other members of the starting 5--or if they went rogue on T or didn't mesh well with the other person in their site on CT.

I might have to go back and start playing 1.6 again thanks to this article.
Long live Crazytank[all versions], AWP City, De_Rats, and Big_City. Also... Rest in Peace, DaTwinkle Gaming.
I completely understand what he's saying I played CSS for years as a kid, and CS even when I was younger. I must've spent countless hours doing it, but I never, ever got bored of the game. Eventually in CSS I got tired of the reg ct/t bomb defusual situations and looked into stuff like zombie mods, surf (oh god surf) and my personal favourite, GG or gun game. I made a real group of friends there, we talked everyday, gamed, hung out together in our favourite servers every weekend. I looked forward to it every week and every hour I spent hanging and talking to them was an hour well spent. I miss those days, I really do. I don't think I'll ever experience something like that again. Long live CS, king of the shooters
I've had Counter-strike not very long compared to most of you. Probably a year and a half, I believe. At first I despised the game. It was very difficult and I assumed it was a very unbalanced game. As my friend beckoned me to play it more often I discovered I had misplaced it. Counter-strike is fun, even if its 'out-dated' missing many features that we have in modern gaming today such as iron sights. What makes me like it though is that thousands of fpses are based off of it, making Counter-strike a classic game. I hope they keep improving it, whether its in a sequel or large updates. Despite my liking of the game, the community seems similar to TF2; rude and childish. Don't get me wrong, I love the game :v: [editline]21st May 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=En-Guage V2;29978606](oh god surf)[/QUOTE] I could never do surf. I still can't today lol.
I remember I had a friend come over (I was like, 12, 11 at the time) and we finally figured out how to surf Oh god how we celebrated [editline]22nd May 2011[/editline] also fuck iron sights man, CS WAS the progenitor It formed the basis for practically everything, it was groundbreaking The only reason I'm not playing it today is because my PC fucked itself and steam and I can't run it anymore
I remember i played CS non-stop 3 years ago, then i got bored. It's just the same thing over and over again, and it has one of the worst game communities ever.
I didn't even knew it had a community I just played the game, and talked with people playing it Any changes that were made to it I had no influence in
[QUOTE=ColdFusion;29963227][img]http://cold.netburst.co.uk/file/SS-2011-05-21_13.30.11.png[/img] 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.[/QUOTE] Counter-Strike is almost 13 years old. Believe it or not.
Never liked CS, to this day I still think it is pretty shitty. I used to play Half-Life, UT99 and Quake 3 instead.
Quake 3 was really arcade-y, I never got the whole hype surrounding HL and UT99 was awesome
I gotta agree with the article, CS made pretty much every multiplayer FPS made afterwards pale in comparison. CS really is a perfect formula, and I've easily spent more hours on CS than every single other game combined.

I remember we didn't have internet back then, so I would just keep playing through the training course over and over. Good times.
SCREEEEEEEEE
Counter-Strike really makes me wish I was a little older. Old enough that I was at my current age (14) around the time this game was in it's prime (even though it technically still is). I feel like I really missed out.
I played CSS as a 11-12 year old and I had the best time of my life I had a deep voice too so people didn't yell at me for using a mic
I played Counterstrike for the first time back in 2002... Was only six. Jesus... Ten years ago, almost eleven years ago. The first time I played was at my friend Garys house because his dad was a modder for UT99. All I remember was the first time I played, I could barely reach the wasd keys so I shifted out, and began using the forward-backward-left-right keys. Good times. When I left NY in 2004 I didn't hear about the game till about... Late 05'. At that time Runescape was on the rage in my school so I played that, and my sisters ex-boyfriend, showed me counter strike again. Played the I-AM-BORED servers for about 2 months, then my sister, and her ex split up, and I was at lost for another month or so before my parents bought me my own steam account with a Day of Defeat 1.6, CS 1.6, Ricochet, and a few other games. I then began playing on DaTwinkle Gaming, and Cause 4 Alarm... So many great moments/years.
I love this game so much. Rarely played online though.
