CS is a modification for the action game Half-Life and now Half Life 2.
It's intended to have realistic game play, as it divides players in a terrorist team and a counter-terrorist team, with realistic weapons.
However, it completely fails to be either fun, or realistic, as its physics are so poorly designed, people only play it because they're addicted to its "intermittent rewarding" system, the basic concept behind gambling.
Namely, if you manage to win a round, you feel good, but you only win from time to time, so you end up playing even if you're terrible at it, even if your team sucks, even if you have better things to do, or play.
The game has such horrible mechanics, that you can get hits on enemies that are literally, on the edge of the screen, so there should be no way to hit them that far.
You could be having the crosshair right over an enemy's chest and when you shoot, all of your bullets can miss!
A bizarre, annoying way to win is to aim at the ground in front of you and spray bullets, they will end up hitting enemies in the head, despite the fact you were aiming at the ground.
Be sure to check yourself and see if you're addicted to this game. If you are, stop playing immediately.
Some players have god-like skills and can kill whole teams by themselves, however, they have nothing else going on in their lives and will probably die alone.
The only ways to win are to have dumb luck, be on the same team as the players who have been playing for years and to play for many years yourself, have no social life, no sex and no fun, for years and years, until you have the necessary reflexes, or until you learn the "shoot at the ground" way to win.
I can't believe how he could shoot me in the head when he's got no telescope and I'm this far away and running! this can only happen in counterstrike
counterstrike blows, I'm gonna go back to TF2
I had the crosshairs on his back, I shot a burst and missed with all bullets, then he turned around and killed me in one shot! I hate counterstrike
How can he headshot them all with that machine gun while they're all shooting at him, counterstrike is so imbalanced
I stabbed him in the head but he turned around and shot me, only in counterstrike...
