The simplest, therefore, the greatest of First Person Shooter games. Two teams, Counterterrorists and Terrorists, going at each other where the end result is that the opposing team is splattered across the map and your team is victorious.

Unlike most FPS's these days, there is still unlimited variety in what modes and maps you can play on CS. Unlike the media-hyped CoD, Halo, etc other series, there's more innovation and imagination in making and playing CS instead of just glitching and recording worthless kills (*Cough machinma Cough*).

No automatic knives once you get close enough, no dumb killstreak rewards that does the killing for you, no vehicles that run you over, no power armor. Just you, your weapon, and an instinctual gauge as to what is a successful shot.

Like ANY other game, you have to play it REPETITIVELY in order to be good.

CS is also a good example that Realism =/= Quality Gameplay

Contrary to new (raging) players belief, there are more 12 year olds and campers on the newer FPS's than there is on CS.

CS 1.6 have smaller killboxes than CS:S and therefore requires more skill
Person A: Look at my score in Black Ops, 300-16, I'm so good and I only had to use chopper gunner twice. Look at me knife, so pro

Person B sits Person A in front of Counter-strike 1.6 and directs Person A to play

Person A: OMG WTF, these KIDS are hacking, how the fuck is that possible, this is a gay game, where are the care packages? No sprint?!?

Person B: *smh*

A decent modification using the Half-Life engine, with a bad reputation due to its community. Mainly Consisting of cheaters, people who speak in 80% numbers (elite speak), and on the whole have Zero respect for other players.

This has made many Admins on servers paranoid, and take a "no trial" approach to cheat accusations and llamas and ban on sight. Which is unfair to those who are actually skillfull at the game and/or have done nothing wrong.

New players are usually put down by long-term players and are insulted with phrases like "n00b"

This has led to the belief that the entire CS community consists of teenagers, as no adult could be so immature.



If someone kills you in Counter-Strike they must be cheating...

Half – Life mod, created in 1999 also know as CS, which started off as the FPS games of the late 20th and early 21st century, and still has a few die-hard fans.
Game is comprised of terrorists and counter terrorist…
Plant Bombs, Rescue hostages, and kill each other until either the other side is eradicated or time runs out, or objective is accomplished… All this should be accomplished with refined (First person shooter) skills… acquired from hours of repetitive play
Game has negative connotations due to the repetitive nature of the Missions and Maps…
Game is polluted with cheaters and hackers who spend much of their time on the computer trying to accomplish an imaginary ultimate hacker status
Instead of terrorists vs. counter terrorists, the game has over time transformed into Hackers Vs. Non Hackers, with ever growing admin boots,,,, bans,,,,, kicks,,, and CD key black lists….
Due to , cheaters, anti cheat programs, abusive admins, bitchers, whiners and campers,
new hacks and MODS for the game are released on a daily basis thus… causing many people to refer to the game in a negative countenance.
I Played way too much CS Last night. The best FPS Game of 1999 and 2000

A great online FPS game that has sadly been over-run by autistic 10 to 14 year olds who like to scream at you over the mic while their balls are waiting to drop. The only way to compete is be a great player or have gone to college for l337 5p34k. Many people bash it because they lack enough skill to play the game. They do this by whining that it's 'not realistic' enough (even though they'd suck at that too) as they take a hit off their inhailer. Servers are run like Nazi Germany by little kids who ban you when ever you blow their heads off while going "H4XX0|2 OMG WTF LOL! B4N TYM3 I R L337! DUN7 FUX W/ TH15!!!11" Also you are shot while trying to decipher coded messages that you soon find out were in fact, not coded messages, but a remedial bastard trying to inform you of an enemy's position. "enmee een phents go ruuf!!!" or "hee at hoistse!" "I hve smlal dkic"
A good game that many people bash, but it is still fun and enjoyable once you find a nice server that does not have a ton of retards in it.

An online multiplayer game that is addictive as crack to the average nerd.
My friend Joseph likes counter-strike more than women because he has no life.

The best Half-Life modification these days. There are several gametypes: Bomb plant/defusion, Hostage rescue and Assassination. There also so-called 'funmaps' and 'funservers' on which you play with e.g. knifes.

1. Servers are usually flooded with 10-year-olds who pretend to be mature untill they talk through their microphone. At that time you will hear a voice from which you can't tell wether the kid is a boy or a girl.

2. Players that are skilled at the game are often called 'n00b' and 'h4x0r' by people who are not skilled at this game. The skilled people are often banned(because of 'hacking') because admins tend to be 10-year-olds and will believe everything their fellow 10-year-olds say.

3. The game contains the AWP weapon. People who are skilled at using this weapon are called 'n00b', 'h4x0r', 'camper', 'AWP fag', 'AWP whore', etc. The people(often 10-year-olds) who call these names are often not skilled at the game.

4. Most of the people who play Counter-Strike talk in the '1337 language'. Most of them can't spell 1 single English word either.

5. If you sit still for about 10 seconds you're a camper.

That is Counter-Strike
1. *kiddy voice through microphone*: I pwn you, nub h4x0r fag!!1!!11!1!!1`one!! I am maturez0r!!1

2. *10-year-old*: OMG WTFUX YOU FUCKING FAGGOT CAMPER HACKER FUCKER WHORE FAG NUB STUPID BITCH HACKER SLUT!
*Skilled player*: I do not hack. I am skilled at this game and I killed you.
*10-year-old admin*: OMGSES BANZORED! HAXOR!!1

3. *PlayerThatGotKilledByAWP*: OMG! You fucking AWP whore camper nub slut bitch faggot nerd. Get a fucking life you nub.

4. *1337talker*: i r s0 1337, b3c4us3 i r b3 t3h t4lkz0r 1337, i r pwn t3h j00, kthnxz0rs.
*Guy who can't spell*: omg00se wuthc uot fru t3h nmee ar0nud th crnur!!

5. *Stupid spectator(got killed)*: OMG HE'S A FUCKING CAMPER, HE'S BEEN SITTING FOR HOURS(10 seconds) NOW!!!

A first person shooter originally made by a man called Gooseman in 1999 as a modification to the game Half-Life. The game consists of two teams, the Counter-Terrorists and Terrorits. Each team purchases weapons at the start of a round and tries to either kill every member of the opposite team or complete an objective.
The game has become an extremely popular FPS over the years, and despite running on a 7 year old game, is still played by many people.

However, many people have hatreds toward the game because of it's popularity and will insult it given a moments notice. Even people who have not played the game or only played for a short amount of time have very biased opinions towards the game.
Despite what many people say, the game is very fun with a good community. There is a reason why it is so popular after all.
