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...
The most popular online first person shooter ever, it's a mod based on the engine of half life, and has been around quite some time now, about 6 years, the gameplay is simple in plain view, there are 2 teams that have to kill each other or complete the objectives of a map to win the round. Unlike other fps like popular fps like quake or unreal tournament, the players doesn't get respwaned after he dies, but he waits for the round to finish, and then gets respawned in the buy zone of each map. the first 30 sec are crucial, when each team tryies to get the best position on the map, tactics beeing a very important part of the game. Nowadays, people neglect counterstrike due to it's out of date graphics engine. Since source came out it made some sturr, but not as big as when it first hit the online gaming community. it's a very dificult game to master, takes years to do that. to newbies it's just boring :)
I pwned the hole team on counterstrike !
One of the most addicting FREE ONLINE multiplayer game. Public servers ruined by hackers.
That Fag Muffin Hacker Just Glock Headshot Me Through The Wall!!!
Counter-Strike is a popular online multiplayer game for the PC and XBOX. It was made during 1999, shortly after half-life. it uses the half-life engine, but it has been upgraded multiple times. down to the core, it still uses the half-life engine, just...sort of upgraded. it pits two teams against each other, Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists. There are different types of maps as well. The guns in the game (which you have to buy using the money you gain for killing enemies, bombing targets, rescuing hostages, winning rounds, etc) are true to life, except, when the game was made, it was made with a left handed gun view, so the right handed is actually reverse from how the gun looks in real life. the different types of maps are: es, de, as, cs, fy, surf, he. es is escape, in which terrorists have to escape, and where CTs have to kill al Ts. de is bomb, in which terrorists have to plant a bomb, and CTs defuse, as is assasination, where Cts have to protect a VIP, and Ts have to kill him, CS is hostage rescue, fy is frag yard, where you have to basically just kill everyone, surf is just...well...surfing. and he is a "grenade map". Note: most defintions here are of people who have never played CS or only played it for a short time and sucked, but in truth is a very fun game.
You, go defuse, ill take the T coming up stairs! yes, we win! that was a good round of counterstrike there...
A strange and frightening ritual performed by 12-16 year old n00bs online and at LANs that, in many cases, dates back further than the n00bs taking part in it.
In this strange ritual the 12-16 year old n00bs play a primitive form of computer game called 'counterstrike' they break in to two teams named the 'terrorists' and the 'counter terrorists' and attempt to achieve the objective while the other team tries top stop them.
To add to the mystery of this primitive ritual all players in the game spout some form of intangible language that cannot be understood by an outside observer. It is not uncommon to hear such phrases as "i pwnzed j00" "j00 sux0r j00 fkn n00b" "j00 fkn ch34t ill pwnx0r j00r base j00 fkn n00b" and "1 r t3h 1337357!111!!!!11!!1".
When not in the act of playing counterstrike these n00bs hang out in IRC channels where they practice their ancient language and flame anyone who enters from a rival team or clan. If you were to ever join one of these channels you would almost instantly have your sexuality challenged, as this is the biggest insult in the '1337' language.

A wildly popular internet team based game with two basic teams, terrorists and counter-terrorists. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a very good game, nor is it very fun. It gained great popularity because it is a free modification on the aging game Half-life and required no one to upgrade their hardware or purchase a new software. Unlike other fun games, the winners of this game are typically the players who sit quietly in one spot for hours waiting for others to walk in front of them so they can shoot them effortlessly. While this tactic may seem ridiculous, it captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of under skilled loser gamers, making it the most popular online game by a large margin.

Loser gamers are often quite fond of playing Counterstrike.
The most played first person shooter that now has been upgraded with the source engin.
counterstrike is better than all other fag games that tommy plays, screw you hackers except drake.
Built on an outdated engine, this game was relatively good for a time. Then, millions of immature 12 year olds flocked to play it, ruining it for those who enjoyed the game. Oh, and it looks like shit too.
Might be good on the HL2 engine if they develop for it.
Remember Counter Strike?
Dude, wasn't that like 5 years ago now?
