I was playing a round of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive last night and found myself in a lobby discussing tree planting, eggs and many other things totally unrelated to the game itself!
I can’t believe that after 11 years (since 2000 I think) this game still has a very large online following. I found my steam login details and thought I’d take a look at a game I hadn’t played in A LONG time! Very surprised there are still HEAPS of servers with HEAPS of players playing. Some things don’t change it seems. I’ve forgotten how difficult this game really was. These days with games like Call of Duty and most other first person shooters you are able to aim down the sights of your selected weapon for better accuracy while shooting but in CS – no such luxury. You basically have to hip-fire ALL the time!
Also the game plays very fast these days, it is quite an old game but when you run forward or backwards your momentum seems to continue to propel you forward for a second or so after you let go of the key which is really weird. I used to play this game all the time back in the early 2000’s and was quite good at it, but these days I totally suck. I might do a few other videos of gameplay from CS though, it’s old but still interesting.
